Taurus Territorial Industries is the largest weapons manufacturer in the Taurian Concordat.


Geared towards offensive and defensive weapons production, TTI was created in the late 2700s and is heavily subsidized by the government.[1] Originally an assortment of small military industries based on worlds scattered throughout the Hyades Cluster, TTI came into being as a single collective entity when Protector Brandon Calderon and his various economic advisors were looking to reorganize the many divergent companies following the issue of Council Directive 41 by the Star League Council in 2722. The small companies were nationalized, then reorganized, reconstructed and revitalized as a part of the rebuilding of the Taurian military industrial base, and TTI finally emerged as a single, coherent corporate entity in early 2760.[2]

TTI's primary facility was located on Taurus and employed almost two hundred thousand workers in April 2765, producing prodigious quantities of combat vehicles and BattleMechs; the 'Mechs produced in the largest quantities were the Locust, Wasp, Marauder and Warhammer, as well as a locally-designed variant of the Wolverine. The Taurian Defense Force used images from the TTI facility as a part of their recruitment campaigns - particularly the image of ranks of Warhammers flying TDF colors within a holding area near the production line. The same images were also used for propaganda purposes.[2]

While briefly eclipsed by the Trinity Alliance-born creation of Detroit Consolidated MechWorks, with the formation of the Fronc Reaches TTI has regained its position as the premier weapons manufacturer in Concordat space. In recent years the company has sold significant numbers of Thunderbolts and Warhammers to the Outworlds Alliance's Alliance Military Corps and obtained a license from the Capellan Confederation to produce a new version of the Wasp.[3]

Taurus Territorial Industries is the largest of all Taurian weapons manufacturers, and its fanatical defenders are well aware of the firm's importance to the Concordat. Unfortunately, not even they could prevent the Fighting Urukhai from damaging the facility and completely destroying the factory's Hatchetman line. The entire factory complex remains inactive at this time, awaiting crucial repairs to the building’s structure.

Many more of TTI's production lines were destroyed in May 3074 when a series of asteroids struck Samantha, the capital city of Taurus.[4] Hansen's Roughriders also attacked and seriously damaged the production lines on Sterope in a retaliatory strike.[5] It was later reported that the TTI facilities on Taurus had been destroyed, and that the Sterope plant had not yet returned to full production even as late as mid-3081.[6]

Taurus Territorial Industries manages three separate complexes on Sterope; an aerospace assembly plant, a conventional vehicle manufacturer, and a small shipyard.

In 3079, the plant on Jansen's Hold was operating at three-fourths its maximum capacity even though it had lost none of its staff. The Sterope facilities had only ten percent of their pre-Jihad staff, and was barely operating at a third of their maximum capacity. The plant on Taurus was destroyed in the asteroid strike, and was a complete loss.[7]



Taurus Territorial Industries has manufacturing centers on the following planets:

Jansen's Hold[edit]

Components produced on Jansen's Hold:[9]
Component Type
Griffin (Primitive)[9] Medium BattleMech
Phoenix (Primitive)[9] Medium BattleMech


Note: Many of these lines were damaged by the retaliation raid by Hansen's Roughriders in 3076. As of mid-3081 the Sterope facility hadn't returned to full production.[6] In addition to these full combat systems, the Sterope plant also produced static gun emplacements and anti-personnel mines.

The TTI facilities on Taurus were destroyed during the Jihad.[6] By 3079 they had returned to some production (Locust, Warhammer refit, Lightning Hovercraft),[16] but not enough to be significant.[17]
