Scarborough Manufacturers

Company Information


The Draconis Combine's version of the Pegasus hover tank lacks the sophisticated communications and targeting systems that make the Pegasus such a popular vehicle. Nonetheless, its physical performance is enough to make it one of the most popular vehicles in the DCMS.

During the Jihad, the main plant on Al Na'ir was damaged by the Word of Blake. The main cause was the damage the Blakists inflicted on the dome that protected the facility. To counteract this, Scarborough opened a manufacturing annex on Algedi. This location kept producing hovertanks through the Jihad. There are also rumors that Scarborough has factory lines on Quentin[1] and New Samarkand, but no definitive information is available beyond speculation that production of a prototype Atlas variant based on design specifications salvaged from the Yori MechWorks plant on Al Na'ir may be intended for the Scarborough plant on New Samarkand.[2]


Scarborough Manufacturers has manufacturing centers on the following planets:

Al Na'irEdit

The Al Na'ir facility was lucky to escape the Jihad with only moderate damage at the hands of the Blakists, although the plant's experienced local workforce took heavier losses.[1]

Scarborough opened the Algedi Manufacturing Annex during the Jihad. The Annex was a small facility located at the edge of Algiers, the capital city, and included a mosque to enable local workers to worship five times a day in keeping with the tenets of the Azami's religious beliefs.[13] The Annex was the only Scarborough facility to escape the Jihad untouched, while details of work being conducted at the Annex beyond construction of the common Pegasus hovertank were kept out of the hands of foreign intelligence agencies.[1]
