Nimakachi Fusion Products Limited is an interstellar manufacturer of DropShips, as well as light and medium BattleMechs. Though based in the Free Worlds League, Nimakachi Fusion Products Limited primarily exports BattleMechs to the Draconis Combine.


Early Times[edit]

Founded during the glory days of the original Star League on the Free Worlds League world of Tematagi, Nimakachi's influences spanned across entire breadth of the League, like many corporations of the day. The Draconis Combine was the company's largest foreign market, and in 2602 Nimakachi purchased the bankrupt Sendai mining complex on Lapida II, using the complex's mining tunnels as factory spaces. Nicknamed "Tematagi Minor" by many in the company, the subterranean facility proved to be a significant deterrent against raiding, military strategists instead suggesting any smart raiders would focus on hijacking the DropShips shipping the completed products off-world.[1][2]

The business grew to win contracts with both the DCMS and the Star League Defense Force. The company produced limited quantities of advanced DropShip designs, such as the Model 96 Elephant-class tug/assault DropShip.[3]

Succession Wars and Thirty-first Century[edit]

After the Star League collapsed, Nimakachi entered the realm of BattleMech manufacture during the early decades of the Succession Wars era, charged by the Free Worlds League Parliament with producing the Spider and Vulcan, two SLDF designs the FWLM had captured from the collapsing Terran Hegemony, in exchange for exclusive rights to their technical data. The company later expanded production of the Spider to Lapida II, as well as beginning manufacture of the well-regarded Warhammer. Like many companies, by the Third Succession War the technological decline had begun to effect Nimakachi's output, with the poor condition of the Lapida II plant slowing production to a trickle and the company forced to suspend production of the Warhammer on the eve of the Fourth Succession War.[1]

Nimakachi's fortunes improved dramatically with the Clan Invasion, giving the company access to recovered LosTech and massively increased demand from the desperate DCMS, the output of both League and Combine Spider lines almost entirely going to the rebuilding Combine military. Recognizing that merely increasing production of its existing designs would not ensure future orders when the fighting slowed down, Nimakachi also looked to developing entirely new designs, first with the Spider-based Venom and later the four-legged Bishamon.

The company expanded DropShip production at its Dalton orbital yards to include a civilian cargo version of the Condor transport, the Stork.[1]

While the underground nature of the Lapida II plant protected it from Word of Blake assault, the Tematagi factory was one of many victims of the Jihad, destroyed by the Order of the Faithful pirate band in 3069.[4][5] With Tematagi inside the borders of the newly independent Rim Commonality, that nation's desperate need for a homegrown manufacturer of military hardware led them to spend considerable effort to woo the company back, ultimately successful with additional funding from the Duchy of Oriente in return for a fixed percentage of the rebuilt factory's output. By 3085, the partially rebuilt plant was producing Spiders and Fleas, with Nimakachi making plans to produce Vulcans and Scorpions when additional lines were rebuilt.[6]

After the Jihad ended, the Stork-class DropShip became one of Nimakachi's best sellers, with a complete production line at the Dalton yard.[7]

Dark Age[edit]

Nimakachi was chosen to produce the Aquila aerospace fighter for the Rim Commonality and the Oriente Protectorate. Those two governments split development costs and received production output from the Dalton production line. The fighter was introduced at the start of the Victoria War, and production remained brisk through 3145.[8]
