Hannibal Weapon Systems
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Hannibal Weapon Systems (HWS) is a human ordnance and matériel manufacturer based in the industrial township of Kotka, Pori on New Carthage. The corporation often manufactures matériel for the United Nations Space Command, specializing in security technology development, small arms, and recently MJOLNIR armor.
Although Hannibal Weapon Systems generally specialized in security technology development and small arms, HWS now primarily focuses on the manufacturing of Mjolnir armor systems. The corporation has recently begun working with the United Nations Space Command to produce prototype upgrades to various vehicle systems, including the M820 Scorpion and HRUNTING/YGGDRASIL Mark IX Mantis.
In 2555, shortly after Vestol Corporation's extant assets were liquidated, Hannibal Weapon Systems acquired production rights to Vestol's ROGUE-class Mjolnir. In 2556, Hannibal Weapon Systems was "Flagged for Review" by the UNSC Navy's Office of Naval Intelligence after the terrorist attack on Sedra.
