ENIS:Factions/Mass Energy Mobile Entity Laboratories
Mass Energy Mobile Entity Laboratories is a government-owned and operated research conglomerate. Evolving from an early competitor to Callide United Mechanism Industries (CUM), it won key government contracts from various human nations with its advanced drone technologies, and was subsumed by the Federation of Allied Planets (FAP) early in its history. Though they began research into mecha long before CUM, they were held back by their focus on drones, primitiveness of the technology, and their continued focus on utilizing the governments small stock of Gar crystals. CUM beat MEME to the punch, and mecha began to replace drones as the primary attack vehicle of FAP. However, with the arrival of the Lion Empire, drones are once more in demand, capable of performing maneuvers and withstanding tensions manned mecha cannot, though they are still inferior to the Lion Empire's mechs and supers.
