Stahl Arms Private Army is a personal military organization that answers to the direct authority of Chairman Stahl, serving more as corporate mercenaries loyal to the one who signs their paychecks as opposed to the legitimate Helghast Army and it's loyalty to the state.

History Edit

The corporation's private army is first seen in Killzone 3, but has presumably been around early into it's history. They act as security personnel for the Stahl Arms Deep South facility, combat units in the field while hunting ISA troops, and even perform more mundane work such as firearm testing and weapon construction in the factories. This hints that the private army outnumbers non-military workers in Stahl Arms, and may perhaps have already absorbed the entire civilian body in the company.

Doctrine and Personnel Edit

Pre-Helghan Terracide Edit

The Private Army is not a full-fledged military force, and because it is attached to a weapons manufacturer, they employ unique and unusual forces.
