Originally two separate companies, the Lockheed Corporation of Gibbs and CBM AeroSpace of Donegal, the pair established an alliance in 2487 to build the original Thunderbird for the Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces and eventually combined forces. The corporation has been compared to Defiance Industries in sheer production of aerospace, conventional and other types of airborne craft.
Fourth Succession War
The Corporation suffered from scandal in mid-3020s, where Steiner government charged the corporation's board members with corruption. Leading number of its members imprisonment including its then-CEO Duke Alan Day. In the aftermath, the minor board member Rachael Haranshire was promoted to CEO of the company. Where she then put number of reforms that swept away elminated numerous forms of corruption that had been missed by the Steiner courts.
Lockheed-CBM's Tharkad plant was seriously damaged during the Blakist assault on that planet. All three production lines were seriously damaged when the Word forces were kicked off Tharkad. In 3077 it wasn't clear if the Hellcat and Lightning production lines would be repaired or if production of those models would cease to make way for a new design, and by 3079 the plant was still only operating at 35% having taken substantial damage. The Lockheed-CBM plant on Donegal was also a casualty of the Jihad, with the their military production destroyed in a Blakist nuclear raid, and as at 3081 there was still no sign of the factory being rebuilt. in contrast with the damage inflicted on the Lockheed-CBM operations on Donegal and Tharkad the Furillo plant didn't suffer any damage in the Jihad, with Furillo itself escaping any Blakist attacks. Production still dropped, however - but only because the company's customers were unable to accept or provide shipments due to the disruption of the Jihad. The Gibbs plant also escaped damage, and was operating at full capacity during the closing years of the Jihad.

Note: These production lines were seriously damaged during the Jihad. The Eisensturm returned to production, but as of 3077 the fate of the Hellcat and Lightning production lines wasn't clear.
