Bug City Express
One of the Big 10, Ares Macrotechnology is a massive AAA-rated corporation. Its headquarters are located in Detroit, Michigan, UCAS, meaning it’s right next door to Chicago, and it is one of the few corps that maintains offices there. Not in the city proper, of course, but it largely controls the O’Hare Subsprawl. Ares is responsible for the creation of Firewatch teams, FAB-III, and most of the cutting-edge vehicles and firearms in the Sixth World.
Ares is doing very well right now, having snapped up the remains of former AAA Cross Applied Technologies, following the death of its CEO Lucien Cross in the [[Crash 2.0]]. The first American-based Megacorp—currently led by Damien Knight—also trumps up its “mom and apple pie” image, fostering strong brand image within the UCAS. Don’t let that fool you, though; they can be as underhanded as the rest.
Major divisions include arms (Ares Arms, the original company), automobile (General Motors), and space (AresSpace, the former NASA). Ares also owns Knight Errant Security, and Apple Computer, amongst its numerous divisions.
