"CM Unit 130 told me that one day he had a human experiment scheduled, but there was still time to kill. So he and another unit member took the keys to the cells and opened one that housed an American woman. One of the unit members raped her; the other member took the keys and opened another cell. There was a Chinese woman in there who had been used in a frostbite experiment. She had several fingers missing and her bones were black, with gangrene set in. He was about to rape her anyway, then he saw that her sex organ was festering, with pus oozing to the surface. He gave up the idea, left, and locked the door, then later went on to his experimental work. What I am doing..."
"Infection of venereal disease by injection was abandoned under my orders, and so I said to my researchers to start forcing the prisoners into sexual acts with each other. Four or five unit members, dressed in white laboratory clothing completely cover the body with only eyes and mouth visible, handled the tests. A male and female, one infected with syphilis, would be brought together in a cell and forced into sex with each other. I made it clear that anyone resisting would be shot. "
Manufacturing Progressive Sciences also know as DEM Arms was a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the KnightWalker Alliance that undertook lethal human experimentation during the Third Sino-KnightWalker War of World War III. It was responsible for some of the most notorious war crimes carried out by KnightWalker Family. DEM Arms was based at the Latsigaen district of Tenguu City, the largest city in the Japanese state Tokyo. It was lead by the infamous B1-Killer Kampfdroide Unit-CM 130 alone while the rest of the researches were underlings. They're going to be the main antagonist force of the 2nd Sub Arc of LOTM: Sword of Kings AA Final - Eckidina Arc after the end of Angel Sub Arc, which is the 1st Sub Arc of the season 2.
Some people estimate that up to 250,000 men, women, and children from which at least 600 every year were provided by KnightWalker Alliance—were subjected to experimentation conducted by MPS corporation at the camp, which does not include victims from other medical experimentation sites.
Unit 731 veterans of MPS attest that most of the victims they experimented on were Americans while a small percentage were Russian, Mongolian, Korean, and SU POW's. Almost 70% of the victims who died in camp were Americans, including both civilian and military. Close to 30% of the victims were Russian. Some others were South East Asians and Pacific Islanders, at the time colonies of the Chronos Empire, and a small number of SU prisoners of war. The Manufacturing Corporation was indirectly an organization owned by Deus.Ex.Machina Industries Empire and 3rd DEM Empire Division Totenkopf and become a public enemy organization for its horrible crimes against humanity.
SummaryDEM Arms is the KnightWalker's largest arms corporation, focusing on weapons development and production for the KnightWalker military. It was founded by Unit-CM 130, just a few days after it was revived by the Fallen's Essence. The key feature to almost all CM weaponry is a high rate of fire. Their most famous model is the StA-52 Assault Rifle.
In contrast to Sephirah Gastronomics, which focuses more on high-end weapons and technologies, DEM Arms largely concentrates on developing and building mass-produced infantry weapons and armor for the KnightWalker forces by conducting lethal humans experiments. Apart from that they maintain a small private army composed by HAZMAT Trooper and Capture Trooper A subsidiary of DEM Arms is tasked with mass producing Body Armor, including helmets, jackets, and other pads worn by the KnightWalker military.
Mercenaries and Assassins
Private ArmyThe Private Army of MPS is a personal military organization that answers to the direct authority of Unit-CM 130, serving more as corporate mercenaries loyal to the one who signs their paychecks as opposed to the legitimate KnightWalker Army and it's loyalty to the state. They have been described and witnessed as a large and formidable force, performing a variety of different jobs and were known for being more sadistic than normal psychotic soldiers of KnightWalker Family. They act as security personnel for the MPS facilities and offensive squads of capture in war-zone, combat units in the field while hunting Stabilization Union troops, and even perform more mundane work such as firearm testing and weapon construction in the factories. This hints that the private army outnumbers non-military workers in MPS, and may perhaps have already absorbed the entire civilian body in the company.
The assets of the private army extend beyond basic infantry units, containing a variety of other soldiers in their ranks. Some mirror troops in the regular Deus.Ex.Machina Imperial Army, such as shock troopers, support troopers and riflemen. But there are a few particular units that are unique to the private army such as the Hazmat Troopers, Capture Troopers, and jetpack units. In terms of armored support the private army is lacking aside from troop carriers and overlord drop-ships, most of their efforts focused in the mass production of infantry related equipment.
- MPS Hardline Security (M.H.S) A division that directs MPS's military units. They have the power to seize MPS facilities in the case of emergencies (with permission from CM 130 himself).
- MPS Research & Development (M.R.D) This branch directs the scientific projects that MPS takes on. It works to both research potential areas for profit and works to develop these in to working models. M.R.D is responsible for the creation of the Project Gigalomaniac.
- MPS Psychiatric Systems (M.P.S) Likely specifically created for Project Gigalomaniac, M.P.S consists of doctors, scientists, orderlies,and security guards who work with patients at Ward Walkers facilities, for the purpose of creating a super soldier, using a "swarm" of specific molecules produced through psychosomatic direction.
Human ExperimentsThe test subjects were selected to give a wide cross-section of the population and included common criminals, captured bandits and anti-KnightWalkers partisans, Americans, black people, political prisoners, and also people rounded up by the KnightWalker military police for alleged "suspicious activities". They included infants, the elderly, and pregnant women.
Thousands of men, women and children interred at prisoner of war camps were subjected to vivisection, often without anesthesia and usually ending with the death of the victim.
Vivisections were performed on prisoners after infecting them with various diseases. Unit 130 performed invasive surgery on prisoners, removing organs to study the effects of disease on the human body. These were conducted while the patients were alive because it was feared that the decomposition process would affect the results. The infected and vivisected prisoners included men, women, children, and infants.
Prisoners had limbs amputated in order to study blood loss. Those limbs that were removed were sometimes re-attached to the opposite sides of the body. Some prisoners' limbs were frozen and amputated, while others had limbs frozen, then thawed to study the effects of the resultant untreated gangrene and rotting. Some prisoners had their stomachs surgically removed and the esophagus reattached to the intestines. Parts of the brain, lungs, liver, etc., were removed from some prisoners.
Germ warfare attacksPrisoners were injected with inoculations of disease, disguised as vaccinations, to study their effects. To study the effects of untreated venereal diseases, male and female prisoners were deliberately infected with syphilis and gonorrhea, then studied. Prisoners were also repeatedly subject to rape by guards, sometimes it was purposeful or they were ordered by Unit 130 to do so.
Plague fleas, infected clothing, and infected supplies encased in bombs were dropped on various targets. The resulting cholera, anthrax, and plague were estimated to have killed around and possibly more than 400,000 Chinese civilians. Tularemia was tested on Chinese civilians.
Unit 731 and its affiliated units were involved in research, development, and experimental deployment of epidemic-creating bio-warfare weapons in assaults against the Japanese populace (both civilian and military) throughout World War III. Unit 130 plague-infested fleas, several diseases were spread by low-flying airplanes upon Japanese and China cities. This military aerial spraying killed thousands of people with bubonic plague epidemics.
Unit 130 conducted experiments by taking captives outside, dipping various appendages into water, and allowing the limb to freeze. Once frozen, ice was chipped away and the area doused in water. The effects of different water temperatures were tested by bludgeoning the victim to determine if any areas were still frozen. Variations of these tests in more gruesome forms were performed. Once the arm was frozen, Unit 130 bring the victim to its laboratory and put the arm of the victim in hot water. Some minutes later, it grab the arm of the victim and push the skin and meat of the arm of the guinea pig like paper leaving only bones. Showing that limbs are easily removed once it's frozen and then heated.
SyphilisUnit 130 orchestrated forced sex acts between infected and non-infected prisoners to transmit the disease, as the testimony of a prison guard on the subject of devising a method for transmission of syphilis between patients shows. After victims were infected, they were vivisected at different stages of infection, so that internal and external organs could be observed as the disease progressed. Testimony from multiple guards blames the female victims as being hosts of the diseases, even as they were forcibly infected. Genitals of female prisoners that were infected with syphilis was called "jam filled buns" by Unit 130.
Some children grew up inside the walls of DEM Arms, infected with syphilis. When Lusamine was assigned to work as the secretary of Unit 130, she recalled viewing a batch of subjects that would undergo syphilis testing: "one was an American woman holding an infant, one was a White Russian woman with a daughter of four or five years of age, and the last was a White Russian woman with a boy of about six or seven." The children of these women were tested in ways similar to their parents, with specific emphasis on determining how longer infection periods affected the effectiveness of treatments.
Rape and forced pregnancy
Female prisoners were forced to become pregnant for use in experiments. The hypothetical possibility of vertical transmission (from mother to fetus or child) of diseases, particularly syphilis, was the stated reason for the torture. Fetal survival and damage to mother's reproductive organs were objects of interest to CM Unit 130 since it was a nice way to destroy a nation from inside. Though "a large number of babies were born in captivity", there has been no account of any survivors of DEM Arms, children included. It is suspected that the children of female prisoners were killed or the pregnancies terminated.
While male prisoners were often used in single studies, so that the results of the experimentation on them would not be clouded by other variables, women were sometimes used in bacteriological or physiological experiments, sex experiments, and the victims of sex crimes.
As the ultimate experiment of CM 130, it was the experiment that was planned by the insane droid to revive dead bodies and force them to fight even after the death of the person. It was carried away by Lusamine but the secretary left the organization and shut down the project.

DivisionsDEM Arms was divided into eight divisions:
- Division 1: Research on bubonic plague, cholera, anthrax, typhoid and tuberculosis using live human subjects. For this purpose, a prison was constructed to contain around three to four hundred people.
- Division 2: Research for biological weapons used in the field, in particular the production of devices to spread germs and parasites.
- Division 3: Production of shells containing biological agents. Stationed in Harbin.
- Division 4: Bacteria mass production and storage.
- Division 5: Training of personnel.
- Divisions 6–8: Equipment, medical and administrative units.
- Most of the experiments of DEM Arms was based in the real life experiments of Unit 731 that was active during World War II in Japan.
