URGA Products, or simply "UP", is a loose consortium of weapons and military vehicles (as well as munitions and logistical support) manufacturers of the Russian Federation, which was given monopolic rights to operate within the country by the Ministry of Defense. In fact, it is required by law for an independent enterprise to be registered as a part of the "UP" to be allowed to produce any kind of armaments, be it for civilian or combat use, on the Russian soil.
After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, it's mighty war machine fell apart as well, and so did the TechMach, a single state-controlled body that manufactured most of the USSR's armament systems. In the 1990s, seen as "years of the Great Despair" by the remnant states of communist regime, many independent enterprises rose up from the ashes of the giant company. They were relatively small however, and with not much government funding were simply unable to compete with Western companies, such as Capstone, Ballard and Delta.
This forced the Russian government to step up in the middle of the 2000's, recreating the fallen TechMach by uniting small armament ventures into a large consortium. The new company was given the name of "ОПВР" ("Объединение Производителей Вооружения России"), but for the Western market it became more known as URGA. It operates as a joint-stock venture, with Russian Ministry of Defense holding a majority of the stock (47%). Another large shareholder is the Black Hand, currently in possession of 21% of URGA's shares.
While initially not very successful, the consortium has seen a drastic increase of sales after the Panau incident, that brought the world into a new era of instability, as well as launch a new arms race. In the 2010's, URGA products incorporated companies of the Czech, Bosnian, Albanian and some other minor Eastern European nations.
It is worth mentioning that only those armaments that were created in Russia after 2003 are licences as URGA ones; those manufactured in Soviet days are considered TechMach. However, UP is doing the best it can to acquire rights for the Cold War "relics" that are still in production in Third World countries, such as the legendary AK-47.
