Description[edit]

The Oonthrax Stables was one of the oldest stables on Solaris.

In 3056 the Stable was bought by Ryan Steiner and changed its name to Skye Tigers Stables[1]

History[edit]

Oonthrax has experienced both the highs and lows of the 'Mech games. The Stable is currently (3051) on a downslide without a champion for the last ten years, and their current Mechwarriors are not considered the best. Hot newcomer Glenn Eddenhoffer may turn the trend around, but only time will tell.

The Stable has been offering especially generous contracts to attact new Mechwarriors without much luck as the actual poor reputation of the Stable is hampering the process.[2]

Despite its purchase and renaming, an Oonthrax Stables was operating in the years immediately preceding the Word of Blake Jihad. While it's relationship to the Skye Tigers is unknown, this Oonthrax was at the time the only stable to purchase Innovative Design Concepts CDG-2A model Cudgel, [3] as well as having a warrior take part in the grand reopening of the FedCom Civil War damaged Steiner Stadium.[4]
