The Diplan 'Mechyards were a major BattleMech producer for the SLDF and later for the DCMS.


[edit] Overview

Unlike Luthien Armor Works, during the Jihad the facility on Aix-la-Chapelle suffered no capital and personnel losses, and had a full production volume of 100% in 3079.[1] The factory itself is easily mistaken for a fortress. Aix-la-Chapelle's large number of tornadoes requires this extreme protection.[2]

Diplan 'Mechyards has manufacturing centers on the following planets:
