|Winchester class Shipyard|
|Bretonia Mining and Manufacturing|
|3D, New London|
The Southampton Shipyards are a massive assemblage of floating steel where most of the Bretonian naval fleet is constructed. The yard is organized around an enormous structure known by most employees as "The Bridge." The Bridge is a well recognized object of pride for most Bretonians, symbolizing the brilliance and dedication of the Bretonian people. Though Southampton is largely controlled by Bretonia Mining and Manufacturing (BMM) and the Bretonia Armed Forces, it is frequented by almost anybody who has business in New London space.
In 825 A.S. the Gallic Royal Navy, after gathering its collective strength, launched a spearhead into the New London system from their power base in Leeds, creating a tenuous foothold within the Southampton Debris Field.
The close proximity of the Gallic beachhead now directly threatens what has become the beating heart of the Bretonian war effort, Southampton Shipyard. This has prompted the Bretonian Armed Forces to station two Crecy class destroyers to protect the vital station from GRN assaults. In addition to the reinforcing capital ships, security in the area has been doubled and regular patrols are conducted to ensure any move against the shipyard is known well in advance.
