Global Armaments is the world's largest corporation, centered around the economic hub of the Pacific Rim. An advocate of standard military company, their products have gained much praise due to their power and reliability in battle.

While Global Armaments has stakes in Algebra for rations and Interior Union for fossil fuels, they are not on good terms with Torus due to the sequence of events separating them from the former GAE.

GA America is a manufacturer of high AP, heavy parts. Their weapons are characteristically heavy, with high ammunition capacity. They fire live ammunition, and feature quite high Attack Power ratings. Their GANO NSS line of products were developed to help average pilots develop top NEXT piloting capabilities.

Couger and MSAC International are complete subsidiaries of GA.


Global Armaments was a powerful corporation in the United States, Japan, China, the Philippines, and Australia during the waning years of the sovereign nations. They used this massive base of influence to grab huge amounts of power during and after the National Dismantlement War.

Armored Core 4Edit

GA is the primary sponsor of Anatolia's Mercenary throughout Armored Core 4, and they lean on him heavily during the Lynx War.

GA is in a deep rivalry with Bernard and Felix Foundation throughout this period, with an increasing number of skirmishes occurring between the two in the months leading up the to the Lynx War. Their relationship with the Rayleonard Group by this time is also growing unstable, as Rayleonard subsidiary Akva Vit is making attempts to take over the corporation's European branch.

Eventually, GA Europe decides to sever relations with the American parent group, and attempts to join Akva Vit and Rayleonard. Their most important base of research and development, the Heide Arsenal, is raided by Anatolia's Mercenary under orders from GA America, which results in heavy damage to a number of advanced weapons platforms, including the platforms designed to carry the Sol Dios cannons. In the wake of this attack, Rayleonard and GA declare war on each other, starting the Lynx War.

BFF also interferes with GA operations in Europe during this time, which leads to the two companies primarily engaging each other during the first stage of the Lynx War (Chapter 4 of AC4). GA emerges victorious from this stage of the war after Anatolia's Mercenary takes out BFF lead LINX Mary Shelley, and BFF's sea-borne headquarters.

Shortly afterwards, the Rayleonard Group attacks Anatolia with experimental Kojima Weapons, although Anatolia's Mercenary is able to defeat them before serious damage is done. GA turns its attention to Rayleonard during stage two of the war (Chapter 5 of AC4), aligning itself with the Rosenthal/Omer group in the process. GA is also able to acquire the services of Joshua O'Brien, Anatolia's Mercenary's friend/rival, for a number of missions against Rayleonard. After Anatolia's Mercenary, alongside Rosenthal's Leonhardt Omer's Mido Auriel, takes out Rayleonard's elite NEXT squadron, he is then sent by GA to take out Rayleonard's base of operations in Canada, which causes GA to emerge as one of the victors of the Lynx War, becoming the dominant corporation over the entire planet.

Armored Core: For AnswerEdit

Unfortunately for GA, it is unable to maintain that power inside The League of Ruling Companies, which is quickly hijacked by Omer Science Technology. Therefore, GA begins operating independently of the League, only utilizing the group when it's beneficial to them. In their operations, they often ally with BFF, whom they rebuilt after the Lynx War. Their mission requests most often involve actions aimed against Torus, who as a successor to both GAE and Akva Vit, are regarded as the biggest liability to GA's continued dominance.

They would eventually return to full League membership when ORCA emerged as a serious threat to the continued corporate dominance. Their massive military infrastructure, alongside their contingent of NEXTs, lead by the LYNX Roadie, would play a critical role in the course of the war, with Roadie being personally involved in two of the Chapter 4 arcs.
