Overview[edit]

Founded on the world of Able's Glory after the planet had been settled to provide support for travellers to the nearby world of Hunter's Paradise,[1] the manufacturing company known as Able's Hunting Arms, Limited (AHA) was established, operated and owned by Able's Aces, the former mercenary unit that had become the core of the Rim Collection Militia.[2]

During the Dark Age AHA manufactured ballistic weapons ranging from small arms up to BattleMech grade machine guns and autocannon. Ostensibly, these arms were produced solely to provide personal protection for those travelling to Hunter's Paradise, but in practise by the mid-thirty-second century the lion's share of AHA's production was being used by Rim Motors, the Rim Collection's native BattleMech manufacturer.[2]

AHA wasn't necessarily limited to supplying Rim Motors, however; in 3145 arms and munitions produced in the Rim Collection were beginning to be exported to the nearby Lyran Commonwealth and AHA was no exception; in late 3144 a representative from AHA visited the Florida Timbuktu Theater Militia[3] on Halifax[4] with a view to selling autocannons and ammunition directly to the TTM to supplement their extended Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces supply chain.[3]

Manufacturing[edit]

Able's Hunting Arms, Limited had manufacturing facilities on the planet known as Able's Glory; no other branches of the company are known to be in place at least as late as 3145.[2]
