In 3067 Bithinian Ballistics was the Capellan Confederation's largest producer of autocannons for BattleMechs and other combat units. They had held this title since the Second Succession War.[1]

OverviewEdit

Bithinian Ballistics chose to build its autocannon factory alongside a large refinery. While convenient for production, it makes for awkward defense. The refinery complex is extensive and reinforced enough to make an ideal base for any invader wanting to take the nearby ballistics plant.[2] Security for the facility often calls upon whatever front-line troops are on the world to augment their defenses.[3]

Since the start of the Jihad, the facility on Bithinia suffered no losses of capital and personnel, and was at full production in 3079.[4]

LeadershipEdit

The company's CEO in 3067 is Mandrissa Elaine Jackson. She was made a noble in 3051 after she acquired plans for LB-X Autocannons from Myrdon Automatic Weaponry.[1]

Bithinian Ballistics has manufacturing centers on the following planets:
