"WE'VE GOT A NEW CONTACT, UNKNOWN CLASSIFICATION!"This article has new content coming soon from Halo Waypoint Universe section, and may not be complete, confirmed or correct. Please update it as soon as any relevant and accurate material is available.
AMG Transport Dynamics, also referred to as Asklon, is a vehicle manufacturing company. Its headquarters was formerly in New Mombasa before the invasion of the city in 2552. It had contracts for light-armored vehicles for the UNSC Army, Navy, and Marine Corps as well as other vehicles in UNSC colonies. AMG also makes numerous civilian vehicles, such as the Capri and the civilian model of the Warthog. In 2483, AMG Transport Dynamics began to manufacture light-armored ATVs for the UNSC Defense Force. AMG produced seventeen different versions of the "Mongoose" line, with the most recent model being the M274 Mongoose.
M12 Warthog line
The company had facilities in the following cities and locations:
- The sign on the Tterrab Industries building seen in the level Metropolis in Halo 2 originally read "Askloun". The name was slightly altered in Halo 3: ODST.
- In Halo 3: ODST, the company is only referred to as "Asklon". Their posters can be seen throughout the city, including all the accessible buildings in Mombasa Streets and even the NMPD Headquarters. It is possible that Asklon is either what the letter "A" in the title means, or a subdivision of the company.
- The logo looks similar to the icon for the Junior Detective achievement in Halo 3: ODST.
- AMG may be a reference to either AM General, a real world company that produces the HMMWV or Humvee, or the Mercedes-Benz AMG (Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach) tuning and racing division.
- The "Destiny Awaits" poster foreshadows Bungie's first post-Halo project, Destiny. The white circle represents the Traveler, a mysterious object that orbits Earth and grants the player characters their special powers.
