Bell belonged to the Capellan Confederation until about 3028ish. They might not control it any more but they would have had it producing Clints for them throughout the Succession Wars. Lots of time to fill their ranks with these Mechs even if that can't make new ones anymore. It's not just a matter of who currently controls these factory worlds but who controlled them in the past and for how long.
Sure the Capellans had Clints in their soldiery, but in 3028 Hanse Davion pretty much handed them their *** in the Fourth Succession war. Most of the major Capellan units took a severe *** beating and lost a lot of those front-line-unit-assigned Clints.
If memory serves me, The CCAF had Ravens, Vindicators, and Cataphracts to rebuild with. The LCAF favored Commandos, Griffins, Zeus, Banshee, and Atlas. The DCMS used Jenners, Panthers, Wolftraps, Dragon/Grand Dragon, Catapults, Chargers(remod), Hatamoto-Chi, Victor, Katana, and Maulers. AFFS used Valkyrie, Javelin, Wolfhound, Centurion, Enfield, Enforcer, Blackjack, Cataphract, Ceasar. There are a lot of models and nations that elude me but this is what I remember from memory. A lot of the changes occured in 3028 and 3039. Several key factories changed hands during this time between the CCAF-AFFs and AFFS-DCMS. Namely the Cappellans lost Tikonov to the AFFS and the one I remember is the AFFS losing their primary Victor factory to the DCMS in 39'.
