New Samarkand Metals is a steel-making and military hardware provider in the Draconis Combine.[1]

Company Profile[edit]

Home Office: Garden, New Samarkand

President/CEO: Marquis Charles Sadafuji (circa 3025)[2]


The motto of New Samarkand Metals has been "If it's metal, it's Samarkand." During the Succession Wars, when the destruction of planetary infrastructure and the drop in interstellar transportation threatened the supply of ores for steel making, New Samarkand Metals began research on alternate alloys to keep up their production. This resulted in their newest product, Tempered Samarkite. While more difficult to work with in regards to traditional steel, Tempered Samarkite has proven to be equally as strong. The formula and procedures for creating Samarkite is as closely guarded as the Coordinator.[3]

New Samarkand Metals has also long been the key source of germanium for the Draconis Combine. Headquartered on New Samarkand, they have several mining operations throughout the Draconis Combine. In addition to the Combine military market, since 2971 they have supplied raw materials to the Outworlds Alliance. Though the Alliance's recent negotiations with Clan Snow Raven have affected the agreement somewhat, NSM has still been honoring the agreement.[4]

By and large New Samarkand Metals hasn't been affected by the ravages of the Jihad. Their greatest threat has come from local Black Dragon Society cells that appeal to the miners' dissatisfaction with their employers. The ISF has been quick to respond to the disruptions however, and the Dragons will most likely not survive to make trouble in the future.[4]


New Samarkand Metals has manufacturing centers on the following planets:
