Misriah Armory.
"Battle tested for your home"
—A slogan from an ad of Misriah Armory

The Misriah Armory is an armory located on the planet Mars.[1] Their logo is a winged hourglass flanked by two double "X"'s usually located on the cartridge base of ammunition.

Many standard-issue UNSC weapons such as the M6C Personal Defense Weapon System, BR55HB SR Battle Rifle and Sniper Rifle System 99D-S2 Anti-Matériel are produced by Misriah armory. While the DTM Series of shotguns were normally produced by the Weapon System Technologies, Misriah apparently produced a variant as well, possibly by license. Civilians were also appearently able to buy military-grade weapons such as the BR55 and the M90, as evidenced by an advertisement of the company.[2]

Misriah Armory currently produces hand-loaded match-grade ammunition for the SRS99D-S2 AM sniper rifle, used by Linda-058 during the Battle of Onyx.[3] They are also responsible for developing the ammunition for the M6 series of pistols for the UNSC. Misriah also produced the Security variant of the MJOLNIR Mark V in 2543.

Appearances

The name or logo of the company can be seen engraved in most of the weapons it produces. In the The Art of Halo book, it shows a side view of the M6C Magnum Sidearm, which has "Misriah" stamped on the side. [4] The engraving can be seen on the side of the pistol in the Halo 3 Beta and the Halo: Arms Race, Part 1 short as well.

  5. The Rose (Terminal 2): On January 6, 2345 (Earth A.D.), at the United Earth Government Misriah food distribution center, what had begun as a commonplace food riot turned into a massacre. The UEG riot troopers who arrived at the scene had been informed that the rioters were armed. As the UEG troopers approached the scene in their Randal Hover tank, plasma fire began spraying upwards. In a flash decision, the commander of the Hover tank ordered his crew to open fire upon the crowd. It took only five seconds for over five hundred starving Martians to be incinerated.
