W-7 Facilities is a Clan Wolf manufacturing facilities/organization located in both the Inner Sphere and Clan Space.[1]

Overview[edit]

The W-7 Facilities has been a mysterious production designation for Clan Wolf. Originally used as the name of a manufacturing plant on the Clan world of Tranquil. It has since been expanded to include Inner Sphere worlds as of 3077, including on world of Weingarten. The W-7 factory is operating out of the remains of the Weingarten Industriplex. The facilities there consist of a number of mobile facilities used to manufacture spare parts as well as new vehicles and 'Mechs for Clan Wolf's Touman. W-7 Facilities is now believed to be the overall name of Clan Wolf's BattleMech manufacturing facilities. One of the three W-7 Facilities is thought to be completely mobile, which is able to relocate to any suitable location.[2] During the Jihad the W-7 facility on Tamar lost 65% of its personnel and was barely operating at 60% in 3079. The Weingarten facility was better off, as it hadn't lost any staff and was operating at full capability.[3] In addition, parts produced at W-7 were shipped to the W-8 Facilities for assembly.[4]

The Weingarten facility is actually a series of smaller industrial complexes that have been placed near easily-accessible resources. The only unifying feature is their proximity to the spaceport. After the Jihad ended, the Weingarten W-7 plants began refitting Inner Sphere BattleMechs to their IIC versions.[4]
