Under the covert direction of Telsin and the Set, Bilming continued building up its fleet and developing its weaponry in the following years, supposedly under Elendel's control, but in actuality clearly for its own purposes.
In 348 PC, Telsin used the Pewternaut A16 as a backup method of bringing a powerful bomb from Bilming to Elendel after the original rocket-based system failed to work. Using the Pewternaut meant that the bomb could not be blocked by train or road closures, the boat was also set on a straight course to Elendel, and set up so that if brought off course, the bomb would detonate.
