The Royal Armory of Desert Star was originally the sole manufacturer of arms, armor and military equipment for the Kingdom of Desert Star. As an isolationist community there was no room to market their products nor did they have any real intention of ever starting; Desert Star had, after all, been self sufficient throughout the later years of the dark ages. After the Coalition covert operation that overwhelmed the Kingdom's defenses and occupied the high technology enclave though, everything changed, when a group of heroes arrived on the scene and liberated them from their brutal oppressors without any expectations of reward or compensation. Through the Tamiya Elite, led by Tamiya Nyan, Queen Mahelian Shaquela learned much of the outside world and realized at last that despite the high technology and might of the city walls - one cannot continue to stick their head in the sand and hope that all will be well. Thus major reforms were enacted, and The Royal Armory of Desert Star became a commercial enterprise.
Although still comparatively new to the market when compared to veterans such as Titan Industries and Northern Gun, Desert Star possessed something nobody else did - Project Archive. During the Golden Age Salt Lake City was considered a mecca for developing new technologies both in civil and military fields. This closely guarded secret was what permitted the Kingdom of Desert Star to survive in isolation for so many years - and now it would provide the means to develop alliances with neighboring as well as distant Kingdoms and nations alike. In gratitude for summoning the Tamiya Elite, Queen Shaquela appointed Ace Ripley as an executive member of The Royal Armory of Desert Star to ascertain what wares are in high demand beyond the borders of her Kingdom and to negotiate sales with these distant neighbors. Over the past several decades, the Kingdom's population has grown significantly, and has made many allies throughout North America.
Meanwhile, turning to Tamiya Nyan she made the request that he and his unit, the Tamiya Elite, assist in training a skilled and capable military to replace the modest guard unit that previously protected the Kingdom. This unit would come to be known as the N.O.M.A.D. Military (Night Or Midday, Assault or Defense.) which would be outfitted with top of the line technology designed and tested in the final days of the Golden Age of Man.
A note regarding the production number lists of military vehicles. The Royal Armory of Desert Star functions entirely on the concept of production to meet demand. If the vehicle/weapon/armor/equipment type is presently in production, costs and such remain the same regardless of how many are ordered and purchased. If it's out of production, however, and someone approaches them and says they want X number of this product, The Royal Armory of Desert Star will work it into production within the next six months somehow or other - regardless of whether it's been out of production for 5 days or 5 years.
The weapons and civilian vehicles are regularly rotated for production so as to keep a fairly ready supply of these available.
