Front Mission Wiki

Shanghai Steel (Chinese: 上海钢公司, lit. "Shanghai Steel Company") is a company that produces weapons and vehicles, including wanzers. Shanghai Steel makes an appearance in Front Mission 3 where a selection of their wanzers and their corporate website would be available to the main protagonist and his group.


According to their own website, Shanghai Steel claims that over 90% of the weapons and vehicles used by the D.H.Z. army and navy are their products. They were also working on developing wanzer-carrying submarines and wanzers that can operate underwater, which they claim officially that they have none created to date. Shanghai Steel is also said to export products to Southeast Asia[1].
