Stokes Mining Station was run by Bretonia Mining and Manufacturing (BMM) until 817 A.S.. It was the largest orbital facility in all of Bretonia and has operated continuously for centuries. Aside from BMM, representatives from Kusari shipping companies were also present, negotiating for the basic materials required to fuel their own industries.
In 817 A.S., when Kusari fleets reached Stokes, Bretonia Armed Forces chose to defend the station at all costs. The decision was rumored to be inspired by BMM lobby within the New London government elite. From strategic point of view, this was a grave mistake, since Stokes is a large and spread out installation hardly suitable for defensive purposes. Bretonian fleets around Stokes were swiftly scattered and had to retreat, and station itself was captured by Kusari Naval Forces with minimal casualties.
Samura and Kishiro, despite their fierce competition, joined forces to operate the facility after it was overtook from BMM. The mining operations were restored in a matter of weeks by Kusari workers brought from Kyushu; it was rumored that certain IMG members and former BMM employees collaborated with Kusari companies.
