Black Sea Armaments
"A world-renowned military weapons manufacturer, Black Sea Armaments has roots in the Cold War Soviet Union, and to this day, it retains the vestiges of that era’s military tradition...The company has been famous for many weapons throughout its history, but today it is known for crafting some of the best core military hardware in the world, including assault rifles, LMGs and rocket launchers."
"Exeter SPE is one of the oldest of the worldwide weapon manufacturers, and has been headed by a scion of the Dulcette family since its founding over a century ago by the family patriarch, Betrand Dulcette. Until recently, this company was a niche manufacturer of minor importance, but the aggressive modernization strategy of new CEO Alysonde Dulcette, the now 28-year old heiress of the family, has catapulted the company to the top in terms of both prestige and quality. "
"Hargan Corporation is one of the youngest of the major weapon companies, having only come into existence in the last ten years. The brainchild of retired Army Ranger, Col. Jackson Hargan, and his team of dedicated ex-military professionals, Hargan Corporation is focused on producing the best quality military-oriented hardware in the world. Their rocket launchers, shotguns and LMGs are nearly unsurpassed, and their development is focused on getting the most reliable and powerful weapons in the hands of those who need them."
"Jericho Systems has long had a singular goal in mind: achieving maximum destruction with a minimum of material. No other company in the world has focused so exclusively on creating weapons capable of being held in the palm of your hand that also have the power to obliterate cities. To that end, Jericho has focused on advancing weapons technology for rocket and grenade launchers, though they have also been long known for crafting the single most effective pistol in the world, the Jericho Cataclysm."
"Hailing from the frigid north of Norway, Oslo Ordnance has been slowly building a reputation of excellence for fifty years. Having been the primary supplier of armaments to the militaries of Scandinavia, they have developed highly efficient weaponry capable of withstanding the simultaneous stresses of the harsh elements and battle wear and tear."
"A scientific company that made its way into weapon manufacturing in an effort to minimize collateral damage caused by poor weapon design, R-Sys has been at the forefront of the weapons industry for twenty-five years...Over five years, R-Sys worked to develop an effective prototype of a grenade launcher which could more effectively deliver the payload to its target with greater range and precision.:
Valley Forge Armaments
"A take-no-prisoners, nationalistic American company, Valley Forge Armaments has built a reputation for crafting high-quality weapons with the best materials, with a throwback design aesthetic. VFA was founded as a small gunsmith in the early years of American independence, and remained a small, family run enterprise for two hundred years. In that time, they steadily built a reputation for crafting high quality shotguns, assault rifles and sniper rifles."
