Corporation DescriptionEdit

Gray Death Technologies was founded following the Gray Death Legion's destruction in 3065. As a joint effort between former Gray Death Legion personnel and Defiance Industries, it consisted largely of former Technicians from the defunct mercenary command, including Richard Leone, a cousin of the late mercenary Grayson Carlyle. The Battle Armor produced by this company were suits originally conceived by the Gray Death Legion's techs.[1]

The company operated during the early years of the Jihad, when in 3068 the company was looted by Word of Blake forces raiding the factory. Brewer's Legion, operating under a security contract to Defiance Industries, was slaughtered.[2] In 3073, GDT was able to restart a production line and produce a new version of their armor dubbed the "Grey Death Strike Suit".[3] This suit was popular with the troops who were assigned to it, and led to further interest from Defiance Industries. Ultimately this interest led to the complete buyout of Gray Death Technologies by Defiance, who relocated the production lines for the Grey Death-branded battle armor to Furillo in 3080.[3]


In 3067 the company's CEO was Richard Leone.[1]
