Misriah Armory is a major weapons, armor, and vehicle manufacturer based on the planet Mars in the city of Shoreline.[1] It supplies a significant portion of the weapons and matériel used by the United Nations Space Command,[3] and is considered the largest military weapons and equipment manufacturer in human history.[1]

Most of the UNSC's small arms and field equipment, as well as many terrestrial and aerospace vehicles, are produced by Misriah Armory. In addition to their own designs, Misriah manufactures technology created by other firms, most notably AMG Transport Dynamics' M12 Warthog. The company also sells combat-grade weapons (presumably demilitarized) on the civilian market.[2] Products, at least on planet Reach, were distributed through the Department of Supply Distribution.[5]

Walter Vickers' father was the chief financial advisor at Misriah Armory in early 2526.[14]


Misriah Armory produced munitions and vehicles for the UNSC throughout the Insurrection and Human-Covenant War. During the Human-Covenant War, Misriah Armory would cooperate with Ushuaia Armory to help create the YSS-1000 Sabre for the Emergency Defense Fighter initiative.[15]

In 2556, Misriah Armory was one of many companies placed under "active investigation" by ONI after the Sedra terrorist attack.[16]

Misriah's Project SENIOR ICE was on Oban, where it was to be delivered, tested and secured as part of Operation: WHITE VAN.[17]

Sports team[edit]

Misriah Armory has an OEM intermural sports team called Misriah Maulers.[18]


Misriah Armory manufactures a significant portion of the weapons, emplacements, and vehicles used by the player in each Halo first-person shooter and both of the Halo Wars titles. Their logo, or name can be seen engraved or painted on several of them.

Their logo is a usable multiplayer emblem in Halo 5: Guardians.

Production notes[edit]

The Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta had ATHLON-class Mjolnir created by Misriah Armory. This would be reiterated with the reintroduction of ATHLON to Halo Infinite.


Misriah shares its name with an organization in the Marathon universe.[20]


List of appearances[edit]


  1. ^ A company advertisement seen in Halo 3: ODST indicates that Misriah Armory produces the M90A shotgun and even markets it as a civilian home-defense weapon. However, Halo: The Essential Visual Guide and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary's Library clearly state that Weapon System Technology designed the DTM series (including the M90) as a more economical copy of Misriah's M45 series. From this, one may infer that Weapon System Technology is a subsidiary of Misriah Armory, that Misriah produces the M45 under license, or that Misriah bought the weapon's patent from WST.

  20. ^, The Rose (Terminal 2): "On January 6, 2345 (Earth A.D.), at the United Earth Government Misriah food distribution center, what had begun as a commonplace food riot turned into a massacre. The UEG riot troopers who arrived at the scene had been informed that the rioters were armed. As the UEG troopers approached the scene in their Randal Hover tank, plasma fire began spraying upwards. In a flash decision, the commander of the Hover tank ordered his crew to open fire upon the crowd. It took only five seconds for over five hundred starving Martians to be incinerated."
