Planet Details:

[3067]Dating back to the Star League, Kong Interstellar Corporation (KIC) on Connaught was badly damaged in the First Succession War and only managed to survive as a repair facility in the centuries that followed. During the Succession Wars, KIC continued to make parts for its primary products the Ostsol, Ostscout and Black Knight BattleMech lines and provided basic factory overhauls and refits for them.

When new technologies began to re-emerge in the League during the late 3040s, Kong, as a major refit agency, became involved in their deployment, providing field upgrades of its Ost- designs. (The number of Black Knights left in service by that time was deemed too small to warrant a new model, though KIC did assist efforts to restore several designs to their original Star League configuration.)

Over the past decade, Kong's fortunes have increased further from the revenues raised by company refit operations, first with the 3058 re-opening of Kong's IndustrialMech plant at Ranelagh and then with the completion in 3065 of a production line at Shellig for new Ostsols, beginning with the new 7M variant. Plans for a new Ostscout line remain on track for a 3070 opening, with the first runs already sold in advance to the FWLM.
