UNSC Ordnance Commission
Before and during the Fall of Reach, many of the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor suits employed saw continual refinement and upgrades as a part of the Ordnance Committee's commitment to rapid spiral development.
This Ordnance Commission, formally dubbed the Damascus Ordnance Commission, was held at the Damascus Materials Testing Facility on Chi Ceti IV in May 2553. This commission event was headed by the major armor defense companies and sponsored by the Office of Naval Intelligence. Companies such as Lethbridge Industrial, Hannibal Weapon Systems, and Acheron Security were all contracted to mass-produce and refine GEN2 armor systems in response to the growing success of the newly-formed Spartan Operations branch of the UNSC Armed Forces.
In response the following things happened:
After the roll-out of the first GEN2 Mjolnir systems battle-proven Mk. IV and Mk. V variants were considered for reassessment by the Committee, at the request of veteran Spartan-II and Spartan-III operatives. This resulted in the creation of the INTRUDER, VIGILANT, WRATH, and INDOMITABLE variants of GEN2 Mjolnir armor.
Ordnance Commission approval levels
Several levels exist that help maintain the use of equipment for several risks. A level 4 Ordnance commission approval may be given if piece of equipment is expensive.
