The Bernard and Felix Foundation is a European company that is known for their precise weaponry. They play a significant role in the events of Armored Core 4 and Armored Core: For Answer.


Bernard and Felix Foundation held an incredible amount of power in Europe leading up to the National Dismantlement War. They involved themselves in the war, quickly becoming one of the most prominent companies. Throughout their early history, and all the way up to the Lynx War, they had a deeply adversarial relationship with Global Armaments (GA).

Although BFF is best known for their precise long-range weapons and targeting electronics, they have also cornered the market as a naval manufacturer. They have been responsible for designing most warships and tankers aside from Omer's submarine class. This is most clearly represented by the 8th Fleet and their powerful BFF Battleships.

Despite not being a primary innovator in the field of Kojima technology, BFF is responsible for several major Kojima-related designs such as the Sphere Facilities, and a unique, specialized Normal capable of withstanding Kojima radiation intense enough to destroy a NEXT.

Armored Core 4Edit

During the events of Armored Core 4, BFF skirmished with GA and its allies multiple times. The Raven was one of the LYNX that both GA and BFF employed in fighting one another. This is most notable when The Raven was ordered to defend a BFF tanker against Omer-based submarines in the Antarctic Ocean.

In the early phases of the Lynx War (Chapter 4 of AC4), BFF and GA engaged in full warfare against one another, with GA ultimately coming out victorious. This is primarily due to the fact that The Raven was contracted to take out BFF's mobile sea-based HQ, Queens Lance. This attack cost them their top leadership, however their larger infrastructure remained intact. The company was able to restore operations with the support of GA, who also emerged as one of the victors from the later phases of the LYNX War.

Armored Core: For AnswerEdit

Through nationalistic centripetal force they were able to regain their once lost assets and become the second largest company in the European region by the time of Armored Core: For Answer. During the Economic War Phase (Chapters 1-3) of For Answer, BFF's new leadership sided with GA, who was unable to dominate within the League, and has since begun to operate independently. By this, BFF's weaponry has been shown to be much more fragile than it was during the Lynx War, and newer designs lack the quality the company was once known for. This collapse in quality is illustrated most clearly by their only Arms Fort, the Spirit of Motherwill, which despite (or perhaps because of) its heavy armaments, is structurally flawed, causing massive internal fires to occur when its outer gun turrets and missile centers are destroyed.
