They don't get into details in either episode where Manx offers to open up the
public purse, and it *does* make for some very interesting questions. I think
Manx was more or less just offering to bankroll the replacement rather than
take any active role in manufacturing one. (Hmm...seem to recall that at the
end of "Katastrophe" that Manx agrees to lend the 'Kat guys an Enforcer
jet 'till the late-lamented TK gets replaced.)

"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
 antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters,
 through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in
 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
