    For Immediate Release:

    IFN HQ, Celeste Harbour:

    With much fanfare, IFN Commodore Harvir today announced a shipment of cutting edge weaponry to be sent to Arkadia. The Scott & Barlow Corporation has been selected to begin shipments effective immediately. The first shipment is expected to arrive at Arkadia in approximately 1 weeks’ time.

    Commodore Harvir told the gathered press; ‘I’m very pleased to know that the colonists on Arkadia will have access to a wider range of weaponry to counter the ongoing Oratan threat and increased raids and attacks by the Smugglers”.

    Oh, there is a new company in the picture? [​IMG]
    "The Scott & Barlow Corporation has been selected to begin shipments effective immediately."
    Are they the 'new kid on the block'? (At least, I don't remember seeing that name before.)
    The company seems to have it's own dropships, so it doesn't appear to be small fry. [​IMG]
    Did they beat Herman Industries for the IFN contract?
    (Several years ago: "Herman Industries won the contract to supply firearms to the Imperial Federal Navy's Liberation Fleet") [​IMG]

    After the owner and his family 'mysteriously' died (killed?), Piron was bought out by Herman Industries. [​IMG]
    And the Piron weapons on the market were apparently not meant to be there.
    Same goes for Gravis: they went out of business too. And the Gravis weapons currently on the market were also supposed to be destroyed.
    Both companies were customizing Herman Industries firearms before going broke. [​IMG]
    All in all it gave the impression that Herman Industries was the heavyweight. [​IMG]
    So, does the introduction of S&B Corp. mean that H.I. is finished?
    Or... are the terms "armaments" and "weaponry" used instead of "firearms" because this isn't about weapons (as in pistols & rifles)?
    Hehe, intriguing! [​IMG]
