Archangel Independent Military Services

Archangel Independent Military Services (A.I.M.S.) is a a professional mercenary company with a C+ Rating by the MRBC.   AIMS is a new company, but has made quite an impact in such a short time.  With an unknown but aparently generous source of funding this rag-tag band has gone from a scratch company of recently graduated fourth-rate mech-school and has been pilots to a force to be reckoned with.  While they still are struggling to develop out-of-mech assets  such as infantry and ground vehicles, they do have a small but efficient ground force used mainly for security detail.

The lack of air support assets and the limited size of the organization prevent a higher rating at this time.  However it should be noted that the company posses slightly more mechs than pilots under contract at this time and they have some assets that are normally unheard of for a company sized unit.
