Headquartered on Menke in the Capellan Confederation and with operations in four of the five Successor States, Starcorps Industries is likely the largest — and most heavily regulated — military industry in the Inner Sphere today. Since the company first offered the Warhammer over 500 years ago, it has remained at the forefront of advancement. During the Federated Commonwealth era, Starcorps’ factories in the Federated Suns – based at Farrarrah on Crofton – and those in the Lyran Commonwealth and St. Ives Compact all saw significant upgrades, increasing production capacity and quality. Of course, those advancements could not be released to the company’s Capellan and League divisions — though scores of corporate officers and employees were tried and convicted for attempting just that — ensuring that those four factories would remain the best and most profitable (FWL facilities would ultimately receive similar upgrades during the 3050s). That only deepened the schism already present within the company, leading to more and more infighting.
Still, the company was able to put aside its internal differences long enough to debut new multi-national designs of both the Warhammer and the Longbow, while the Lyran and FedSuns divisions continue to collaborate in improving the design of the Manteuffel OmniTank, the company’s first foray into designing and building vehicles outside of its St. Ives division.
