Wakazashi Enterprises is a defense manufacturer that supports the Draconis Combine.

Company Profile[edit]

Home Office: Unknown.

President/CEO: Marquess Cynthia Evans (3025)[1]


Wakazashi Enterprises was one of the premier aircraft manufacturers in the Star League. After the start of the First Succession War, Wakazashi planned to move its plants to the Periphery so that they could avoid being damaged in the ensuing carnage. Coordinator Minoru Kurita wooed back the corporation's loyalty by offering them a contract to build a medium aerospace fighter. The result was the Shilone, an excellent medium class fighter with more than average firepower and armor.[1]


Wakazashi Enterprises has manufacturing centers on the following planets:

In addition to these components, the Dover facility also performs refits on DCMS Bombardier 'Mechs. In 3079 the plant was installing a new production line. It also manufactures (unnamed) Autocannon/10 and Autocannon/20s for various weapons.[15]

New Samarkand[edit]

This plant also has the ability to update Bombardier 'Mechs.[25] During the Early Republic Era the plant was primarily mothballed as part of the military drawdowns, only keeping limited production of spare parts. After the 3132 collapse of the HPG network the facility was reactivated and brought up to full production capacity.[26]

This plant used to belong to Mangon Aeronautics, but Wakazashi acquired it shortly before the Clan Invasion.[29]

Note: Since the start of the Jihad, the facility on Schuyler, suffers no losses of capital and personnel, and have a full production volume of 100% in 3079.[16] Production never slowed or stopped, mainly because the workers continued to show up to their jobs. The Smoke Jaguars used the output of the factory for their second-line and defensive forces.[30]
