Ashton 'Mech Production Complex

Ashton 'Mech Production Complex
Corporation Profile

The Ashton 'Mech Production Complex is a Clan facility on Foster in the Kerensky Cluster. It is located near Pillar Prime.[1][2][3]


The Ashton 'Mech Production Complex is owned and operated by Clan Coyote, though it was once under Clan Fire Mandrill's control[citation needed]. The complex is best known for producing the original Canis and Rabid Coyote 'Mechs, developed in response to changes in the Coyote approach to combat. The factory was taken in a Trial of Possession ~3070 by Clan Goliath Scorpion[2], and damaged or destroyed by Clan Coyote's Delta Galaxy by March, 3073[3].

  1. Note: Two references were used to infer the location of Ashton 'Mech Production Complex, both from The Wars of Reaving. "Vanishing Point", p. 70, describes Clan Goliath Scorpion gains on Foster 3070-3071, in the absence of a significant Clan Coyote presence; the Trials of Possession for parts of the Coyote enclave won the Scorpions the Ashton 'Mech Production Complex, and a new, unnamed Minotaur complex. "Scorpion Gambit", pp. 124-129, describes how the Goliath Scorpions held one last colony centered on a large, BattleMech factory. Since the Scorpions only had two factories on Foster, one BattleMech and one ProtoMech, it is inferred the identity of the BattleMech facility must be Ashton 'Mech Production Complex.
