Yakuza => manpower, smuggling channels and so on
DCMS => weapons + troops , example the Town-Invasion or assault on Alshain through the Alshain Avengers with warship support
ISF => with their capabilities they are early warning system for the hole movement
Corporate Leaders => they use their business as cover for operation or as legal background for agents
