Corporation Profile
HeadquartersSouth Nowhere (Solaris VII)[1]


Solaris Arms was a small 'Mech production firm that didn't specialize in producing large amounts of 'Mechs. Unlike Defiance Industries, Solaris Arms instead focused on developing new BattleMech designs for the arenas and stables on Solaris. All of Solaris Arms production lines were tuned to a specific design, and they could only produce a few units per year.[1]

During the Jihad, the facility on Solaris suffered no capital or personnel losses, and the operating capacity of the factory had the full main production volume of 100% in 3072.[2]


Solaris Arms has manufacturing centers on the following planets:
