History[edit]

SinoViet Naval Yard AS-9 was responsible for constructing the Stalwart-class frigate UNSC In Amber Clad alongside fifteen other frigates in 2547.[9]

During the Fall of Reach, the SinoViet Center in the city of New Alexandria[10] and SinoViet's ship disassembling facility in Asźod, became battlefields.[3]

In 2556, SinoViet was one of many companies placed under "Active Investigation" by ONI after the Sedra terrorist attack.[11]

Trivia[edit]

  • The name of the company comes from the words Sino and Viet, which are also names for China and Vietnam respectively, leading to the logical conclusion that the company is based in Southeast Asia. Also supporting this is the fact the top floor of the SinoViet Center on Reach has an Oriental theme.
  • SinoViet boxes can be seen on The Storm level in Halo 3, and in its following level, Floodgate. The SinoViet logo can also be found on the sides of a few cylindrical tanks also on the level Crow's Nest. A few SinoViet-owned buildings can also be seen in Halo 3: ODST.
  • In Halo: Reach, the SinoViet logo is different as seen on the SinoViet Building in New Alexandria and can be seen all around the Asźod ship breaking yards. The logo consists of a green arrow head pointing downwards surrounded by a larger, white arrow head, also pointing downyards.[3][10]
