Relations with other Factions

Executives and Overseer staff
- George Haines: Founder and CEO of SABRE, former decorated veteran of the Falklands War, and with the present War Economy being ever present and booming; Sir George Haines celebrates his achievements in contemplative silence, and ignoring the somewhat numerous low points of his ventures, following his departure from British Armed Forces. The SABRE that he'd founded following his departure from the British Army in 1985, changed drastically; with new technologies and resources at its disposal, a far cry from the original units of SABRE, which consisted of 4 Westland Whirldwinds, 4 Westland Wessex helicopters and a number of Land Rovers. Unfortunately, due to health issues; Haines has passed on a number of roles he wouldn't have dreamed of relinquishing to the company board.
- Jasper Bonnet: Long time Overseer for contractors of SABRE, and all around loud-mouth who enjoys berating his lesser; this coming from a Scottish former Captain in the Royal Marines, who ended his career with the loss of his arm up to the elbow, which was later amputated at the shoulder due to being untreatable in the eyes of most medical practitioners in the British Armed Forces. Despite his negative affect on the attitude of most of the men serving under his direct command, the tactics and training he calls upon works fairly well, allowing SABRE to excel in contracts both large and small. Despite this, Bonnet maintains a pleasant attitude with the longer serving contractors, and has a special place in his shallow heart for Scottish contractors, granting them special privileges, even if the contractors themselves are somewhat poorly performing their duties; much to the chagrin of Sir George Haines.
Contractor: The Contractor is the backbone of SABRE infantry, deploying to all areas of SABRE's influence, and used in both company holdings defense, and in defending contract obliged holdings. Most originate from UK, South Africa, Canadian, German or French backgrounds, but there exists overall a mixed cultural and national background in SABRE contractor forces.
SABRE Security Services: SABRE Security Services are amongst some of the finest trained PMC operators in Europe, the Middle East and in Africa, their backgrounds in the Special Air Service, French Foreign Legion and former Apartheid Officers; trained also in advanced CQC moves, and in advanced weaponry usage; to secure company interests, and safeguard them.
Support Staff: SABRE Support staff are the basic employees in most regional offices, comprising of foreign and ethnic citizens of the country the office is based in, and operate long and arduous hours to achieve ambitions and adhere to SABRE guidelines.
Thanks to SABRE's holdings the industrial industry in the United Kingdom, the company is able to manufacture most foreign vehicles by its own assets, with the caviar of manufacturing them under contract and under the agreement that the company doesn't commit the vehicles to re-sale, unless to the manufacturer.
The group however; does see fit to purchase vehicles in large numbers from industry assets not owned by the group, to cover the demands of its forces for vehicles fleet fillers. Most notable a purchase; is the Mobile Command center and Heli-carrier of the company, a former Aircraft Carrier of the Royal Navy; HMS Illustrious.
NHIndustries NH90: The mainstay air platform of choice for SABRE, the NH90 replaced the aging Westland Whirlwind that the company flew for many years, and is deployed in almost all of SABREs mandates, holdings and conflicts, thanks to the relative cost effectiveness of the air frame.
UAZ Utility Vehicles: Commonly used by SABRE, due in part to their rugged durability; but mostly due to the inexpensiveness of the vehicles. Often with mounted weaponry for high intensity skirmishes; the vehicles are an effective Troop transport.
M113 armored personnel carrier: Deployed in small numbers, though in a concentrated number in Cyprus, the vehicle makes up the mainstay armored transport of SABRE, often employed for high risk areas, or in urban conflict zones.
Panhard AML-245: Deployed almost exclusively in Cyprus, the Panhard is one of the companies light armored vehicles; ideal for providing fire on to transports or lightly armored vehicles. Despite issues of engine maintenance and periodic turret jams; the Panhard is nevertheless functional and effective fighting vehicle in the companies roster.
Heli Command Mobile LPD-01 (formerly HMS Illustrious): Used as a mobile command center in the Mediterranean sea, and in European coastal waters by SABRE, the Heli-carrier has been accredited as the groups most ambitious purchase in recent years, and perhaps the most costly to maintain in the groups arsenal.
River-class patrol vessel: Used to defend shipping ports and company property located near the coast of operating nations; the River-class patrol vessels in service have been well maintained, and operate fairly well in most conditions; including in combat situations.
