The Private Military Company Trust, abbreviated as PMC Trust (ピーエムシー・トラスト Pīemushī Torasuto?), is an alliance of private military companies in Republic of Moralia within Mobile Suit Gundam 00.

Description & Characteristics

Based in the Republic of Moralia, where its activities are beneficial to the local economy. Its collective armed operatives form the functional mercenary equivalent of a standing army, amongst which Ali Al-Saachez serves as a key field officer. Besides mercenary deployment, the company otherwise provides services relating to the training of military personnel and the transport and development of weapons.

History

Private military companies make up 20% of the private corporations in Moralia, a country that borders France and founded in 2284. After Celestial Being begins their armed interventions, the AEU, Moralia, and PMC Trust perform a large joint military exercise, in an attempt to capture a Gundam. At a PMC Trust base, an officer gives Ali a custom tuned Enact so that he can capture the Gundams. On the day of the exercise, Celestial Being's Gundams appeared as expected. In the skies over Moralia, Allelujah takes out the air forces. On the ground, Lockon uses his new GN Full Shield to block attacks from a squad of Hellion Ground Types before destroying them with his GN Sniper Rifle and GN Beam Pistol. Tieria uses his GN Bazooka to take out a large number of Hellion Ground Types. Patrick's Enact and a group of Hellions approach, and he's eager to take on a Gundam. Tieria fires his GN Cannons, destroying the Hellions and grazing Patrick's Enact. Elsewhere on the ground, Setsuna uses his new GN Long and Short Blades to slice apart a group of attacking Hellion Ground Types. Setsuna then comes under attack from Ali's Enact and is eventually saved when Lockon intervenes. Later, a Moralian military commander is informed that they've lost about half their combat force in just two hours. The Gundams emerged from the ravine and destroy all the mobile suits defending the Moralian military headquarters. After a tense moment, the Moralians fired a white signal flare of surrender. After the fighting, Moralia received economic aids and reconstruction assistances from AEU, which hoped it could now take in the country. The PMC Trust was later disbanded by the United Nations Forces in preparation for the formation of the Earth Sphere Federation.
