Description:

A lush, tropical garden planet that is also richly endowed with precious metals and a still-functioning electronics industry, Sian has been the capital world of the Capellan Confederation since the bombardment of Capella in 2468. It is the seat of House Liao's political apparatus and homeworld of the infamous Maskirovka. Equally important, Sian is home to the original Warrior House regiment, House Imarra. Other Warrior House battalions rotate to Sian periodically for special training. The site of the Chancellor's summer palace, Sian is probably the best-defended world in Capellan space. In addition to its Warrior Houses, Sian is garrisoned by Capellan Hussars with support AeroSpace fighter contingents commanded by the best pilots in the Capellan service.

[3025] Hellespont Industrials was at one time the second largest manufacturer of weapons in the Confederation, giving Earthwerks Ltd. Strong competition for critical BattleMech production contracts. At the height of the succession Wars, however, Marik and Kurita attacks all but wiped out this firm's 'Mech production capabilities. In an effort to avoid total ruin, Hellespont relocated its remaining factory workers and production equipment on the more easily defensible capital of the Sian Commonality. Rather than trying to rebuild all the plants lost during the war, Hellespont moved away from 'Mech production into the manufacture of less expensive, more easily constructible armed hovercraft and tanks such as the Vedette.

Hellespont is today the single largest producer of armored fighting vehicles in the Capellan state. Though in recent years the company has again taken on 'Mech research and development, principally in the salvaging and improvement of captured 'Mechs, corporate emphasis remains the production of lighter vehicles.
