Notable Members

Dhana Technologies, more commonly known as DhanaTech, is a high-tech corporation based in the walled city of New Zanzibar in Sector VIII, and headed by founder and CEO, Ashur Icharia. Founded in 2101 as a weapons lab, DhanaTech grown in size and power as it recieved lucrative contracts from various city-states throughout the sector for weapons, equipment, and vehicles to secure their territories from their rivals. Using the increase in power and wealth, DhanaTech has effectively seized control of New Zanzibar from the governing authorities, and for all intents and purposes, rules the city itself.

Unbeknownst to all others with the exception of a few select members of Ashur's inner circle, DhanaTech in fact serves as a vehicle for Ashur's personal ambitions within Sector VIII, as well as increasing his standing in the world. Recently, Ashur's goals for the corporation have centered around decoding and mapping the human genome, so that he can create the "perfect" human, and rewrite the human race for the "benefit" of all mankind. DhanaTech faces stiff opposition within Sector VIII, and has had to contend with foreign powers attempting to curtail its disturbing political power at home.

History

Foundation

When I started, I had nothing but the blood-stained suit I stole from another guy. Interestingly, he had nothing but the clothes on his back. Poor lad.

–Ashur Icharia

DhanaTech was established in 2101 by Ashur Icharia, sometime after his escape from a government laboratory where he had been held for several years as a test subject. During his time on the run, Ashur spent many years roaming the African continent running from government authorities. This opened up his eyes to the abject poverty of his people throughout Sector VIII. Appalled by what he saw as an problem that could be resolved if one put their mind to it, Ashur, already having dreams of grandeur, sought to achieve what few others could or would do; bring peace to war-torn Africa. However, he would need to finance his goal to see it accomplished. To that end, he founded Dhana Technologies in New Zanzibar, by far one of the safest cities in Lower Africa. By that time, the government of Sector VIII assumed Ashur had perished in the violent countrysides of the nation, and gave up on looking for him, allowing Ashur to establish the company with little issue.

Ashur "found" the money needed to get into the industry, mostly by getting investors to side with him through false promises, death threats, and outright murder itself. He even managed to get a tailored suit for his opening presentation by stealing it off of a recent divorcee about to jump from a bridge. Ashur made sure to take the suit before "helping" the man on his way. DhanaTech made its way into the dog-eat-dog world of corporate politics with something of a bang. During his time on the run, Ashur reverse-engineered technologies Lower African intelligence forces managed to steal from other nations. Though they lacked the ability to reverse-engineer these technologies themselves, Ashur could, henceforth his capture and testing by the government. Ashur not only managed to produce these technologies himself, but he even went so far as to make them better.

The company sold these weapons to high-end clientele, who required quality protection and weaponry on the hard and brutal streets of New Zanzibar, as though it was considerably safe, it was still located in Lower Africa. Thus, the company grew exponentially selling these new weapons and equipment to the wealthy. In time, DhanaTech had acquired enough capital to expand its industry into other parts of the nation, though East Africa had become the center of its corporate empire. Ashur set himself up as the region's premier arms dealer to supplement his company's sells, as the wealthy were only so numerous, and wouldn't buy into Ashur's schemes for too long before moving onto other dealers. Capitalizing on his nation's civil wars, Ashur began selling guns, tanks, and airplanes to rebels under the table, ironically, in complete disregard for his supposed plans for the nation. As far as he was concerned, the weaker the herd, the easier the culling.

Aggressive Expansion

DhanaTect gobbled up the competition throughout the region, buying up the shares of failing companies, and selling of the assets at ridiculous later on to fill its coffers, by lying to buyers about the state of their purchases. Rivals who openly opposed the corporation were quickly silenced, and their companies mysteriously collapsed overnight as a serious of scandels and backruptcies were declared. To this very day, how Ashur and DhanaTech as a whole for that matter were able to accomplish such a feat remains a popular mystery. In the end, DhanaTech was quick to pounce upon an opprotunity to ruin their opponents whenever they presented themselves, and if the results happened to require blood to be shed, all the better to have a dead rival than a recovering one with friends. Thus, DhanaTech's history entered into a bloody phase, though it would be far from being the bloodiest, which was yet to come.

Until then, few possessed the will, power, or ability to stand up to DhanaTech, which crushed enemies with unusually heavily-equipped "security teams", who armed with military-grade weapons which hadn't been revealed to even DhanaTech's most well-to-do clientele; foreign governments seeking to arm their forces with only the best weapons on the planet, without having to pay the enormous costs of building and maintaining them themselves. These "security teams" would play a much greater role in the corporation's ultimate rise to power later on, but at the present, they were beating the literal life out of workers on strike, private citizens protesting against the corporation's draconian work ethics, and government authorities responding to said attacks on workers and protesters. DhanaTech was growing out of control, but the worst was yet to come.

Acquisition of New Zanzibar

As DhanaTech's power, wealth and corruption grew, so too did its enemies. Ashur's overnight success would only go unnoticed for so long until someone put one and one together and discovered who he was. By 2110, DhanaTech was the largest and most powerful corporation in Lower Africa, providing goods to both the government of Lower Africa and the rebel forces they were fighting. As the company soared to new heights, especially in light of the increasing quality of the organization's products, questions about the man behind the company began to crop up. Ashur's history as a government pawn remained under wraps, but his trail of death hit the media like a laser-guided bomb. Numerous murders across Lower Africa and several neighboring sectors were all linked to Ashur as he hid from government agents. In a rare period of cooperation, it was discovered that Ashur was the man responsible, leading to a warrant for his arrest in Sectors VI, VII and XIII, and an official government execution in Sector VIII. With the governments of four sectors on his heels, Ashur opted to come out of the situation on top.

In 2112, Ashur authorized the reveal of his private army, which for most of the company's history, posed as company security forces. Armed with advanced technologies not seen in most other sectors, Ashur's army took over New Zanzibar within ten hours, killing 90% of the local police and military forces from Sector VIII, and repealing three counterattacks by the sector's admittedly poorly-equipped armed forces. Ashur's strike was ruthlessly efficient, and swiftly placed his company in control of the city. Ashur's success frightened Lower African government officials, who understood rather clearly that a direct confrontation against DhanaTech was impossible. Not only would it result in a major defeat, but it would open up the rest of the country to Ashur and DhanaTech. Thus, a policy of appeasement was adopted. Lower Africa would abandon East Africa to Ashur, and give him what he wanted to contain him as a threat to the rest of the nation. This would be the status quo for sometime, until Ashur made his next more later on however.

Interventions in Sector VIII

Ashur's goals ultimately went far beyond his minor victory in New Zanzibar. From his secure, fortified island city, Ashur planned to go beyond the walls of city with his plans, and thus drew up a series of military operations to prepare the ground for DhanaTech's planned arrival to the mainland in force. The armed forces of the company already existed in considerable numbers, and the facilities needed to sustain operations outside of the city were in DhanaTech's possession. Thus, several brigades of DhanaTech security personnel made their presence felt outside of New Zanzibar, taking out rebel encampments throughout the region of Tanzania, and further on into Lower Africa as far as the Congo. There, DhanaTech personnel were deeply engaged in military operations against the rebel armies which had long ruled over the region for decades. Though that region would remain largely out of Ashur's reach, the rest of the country was quite clearly up for grabs.

The military of Lower Africa was repeatedly outshined by DhanaTech's high-tech security personnel, who often appeared out of nowhere in the middle of a battle with rebels to save the day and win the hearts and minds of the local population. Interestingly, DhanaTech rarely appeared at a battle which didn't have government personnel already in the fight. Unbeknowist to any, Ashur was performing these shows of force to gain the support of the people, up-staging government forces to prove the latter's inadequacies, and promote DhanaTech's own. By doing so, Ashur was leeching away the tenious support the government maintained to himself, and weakening the government as a legitimate source of regional power. Thus by doing so, Ashur was setting his corporation up as the true government of Lower Africa in the citizens' eyes, and gaining the popular support he so badly needed if he were to see his dreams come true.

Annexation of Tanzania

Ashur had waited for the right time to appear for him to reveal his true intentions, and begin his march across Lower Africa and bring the sector under his control. By the mid-2110s, DhanaTech had unfettered access to all areas of Tanzania, the military of Sector VIII completely incapable of forcing the company out of government facilities occupied by their security forces. With his plans coming to fruition, Ashur came out and annexed Tanzania, ripping it away from Lower Africa and making it his own. Outraged, the government of Sector VIII planned a major invasion of the territory, sparking the War of Tanzanian Liberation in 2117, which saw hundreds of thousands of Lower African military personnel invade Tanzania to free it from DhanaTech's control. Lasting for a gruelling three years, Lower Africa failed to break Tanzania free of DhanaTech's grasp, losing more than 100,000 troops to the far superior forces of DhanaTech. While they were not totally incompetent, and even going beyond the expectations of their commanders, the troops of Lower Africa were simply ill-equipped to deal with Ashur and his men.

Forced out of Tanzania, Sector VIII troops dug in along the southern border of DhanaTech's newest acquisition, and prepared itself to hold off any additional attacks by the megacorporation on the sovereign territory of Lower Africa. Foreign condemnation was rife, though few saw fit to do anything about Ashur's corporation. Many assumed that it may have been that having Ashur in control might stabilize the resource-rich sector, or at the very least keep it so fragmented that it posed no threat to themselves. In any case, foreign intervention was nil, and no aid was expected from the world as Ashur's troops marched across parts of the sector with impunity. With DhanaTech's actions going completely unpunished, Ashur was free to pursue his greater goals while his corporation exploited the land and its people for its planned actions. Ashur's eyes, though still focused on Lower Africa, would soon look toward the world as DhanaTech's power and ambitions grew.

Operation Shadow Hand

Products & Services

We offer many premium products and equipment. We only make the best, and we only use the best. However, as they are premium, top-of-the-line materials, they are quite expensive. So unless you plan on paying in cash, we have no further business to conduct.

–DhanaTech employee, explaining the cost and quality of the corporation's products

Dhana Technologies offers a number of high-tech products and vehicles, and currently excels in energy weaponry and advanced metallurgy. The corporation also produces mid-level autonomous warbots for industrial and military use, though much of their robotic workforce remains highly outclassed by Sector II. Though as the technology is very expensive, often times prohibitively so, DhanaTech compensates for this by increasing the quality and longevity of the equipment, producing high-tech technologies which increase the firepower of the individual ten-fold, a major accomplishment that ensures the corporation can compete militarily with much larger rivals elsewhere. Company aesthetics revolve around black geometric and angular designs, with dark purple serving as the secondary color when considering lighting or weapon discharges and engine exhausts colors.

  • G-108 Kunguru – The G-108 Kunguru is the primary fighter aircraft utilized by DhanaTech security forces for air superiority and multirole combat missions at close to medium distances from its home-base. The G-108 was utilized a number of times to intercept enemy aircraft spying on DhanaTech troop positions in Sector VIII, and taking out tactical transport aircraft of enemy city-states in the sector. DhanaTech has produced 483 of them for general combat service, and plans to build another 300 for future combat operations in the sector.
  • G-107 Tai – The G-107 Tai is a ground attack craft as well an average dogfighter employed by DhanaTech to deal with enemy armor on the ground as well as entrenched enemy infantry positions. The Tai was employed in large numbers during the New Zanzibar insurgency against the corporation's grip on the city. The aircraft obliterated numerous tank columns sent by the central government to enforce a ceasefire in the region, preventing aid from getting to the insurgents. A total of 322 have been built so far, with another 200 on order by DhanaTech's security forces.
  • K-118 Chui – The most advanced hovertank built by DhanaTech, the K-118 Chui was designed by the corporation to fight in small groups of four, and support infantry regiments in an urban environment. A small tank, the K-118 is armed with only medium weaponry, which are themselves designed to take out soft targets, such as APCs, IFVs, and infantry positions. As such, it possesses rapid-fire weapons and a single medium plasma cannon. A total of 2,105 have been built, and with DhanaTech's future warplans, another 1,000 are slated for production.
  • K-112 Chuma – The K-112 Chuma is the heaviest tank produced by DhanaTech. Armed with the corporation's most advanced features and defenses, the K-112 is a literal beast, built to carry six personnel, two dual-linked plasma repeaters, a single heavy plasma cannon, and a turret mount heavy plasma caster which serves as the tank's secondary weapon. Columns of these tanks drove through the streets of New Zanzibar after DhanaTech's hostile takeover of the city in 2120. With DhanaTech's recent advances in electromagnetic armor, new defenses for the tank are under development, with plans to make the Chuma an unstoppable terror on the battlefield. 1,248 were built as of recent, and another 500 are on the table for future production.
  • Ganda Combat Exosuit – TBD
  • Kujifunga Combat Armor – TBD
  • Kuwafukuza Electromagnetic Shield – TBD
  • DPR-14 Mkali Plasma Rifle – The DPR-14 (Dhana Plasma Rifle – Model 2114) Mkali Plasma Rifle, is the primary weapon of DhanaTech's elite special forces, and only given to the best within that elite group of individals. The DPR-14 was hastely created by the corporation to deal with Sector VIII's military interventions into the New Zanzibar region, and a strong weapon that could permit an individual to down armored targets without heavy weapons was needed. The DPR-14 was created thereafter, and issued to members of the elite Mauaji Corps, who spearheaded the assault on Lower African military bases on the mainland preparing to strike at New Zanzibar. The DPR-14 is very expensive to produce, as the technology used in the weapon is exclusively produced and supplied by DhanaTech, driving up costs as no readily available alternatives exist as of yet.
  • DLC-10 Kupasuka Laser Carbine – The DLC-10 (Dhana Laser Carbine – Model 2110) Kupasuka Laser Carbine, is the standard-issue combat rifle of DhanaTech's security forces. Designed by the corporation shortly before its takeover of New Zanzibar, the DLC-10 was designed to operate urban environments for the planned attack on the city. The weapon possesses a high rate of fire, has moderate stopping power, and is rechargable, perfect for long sieges in which DhanaTech may not be able to resupply troops during urban combat. The DLC-10 is the atypical weapon of its security forces, and its presence has since come to symbolize DhanaTech's grip on the East African region. Despite their wide usage by DhanaTech security forces, the DLC-10 is an expensive weapon, as it employs energy as a weapon, rather than kinetic slugs which are far cheaper and more readily available on the market.
  • Mkuki Electromagnetic Lance – TBD
  • Hariri-weave – Hariri-weave is a black, cloth-like substance produced by DhanaTech as a cheaper alternative to other forms of cloth. It is as heavy as wool, but stronger than steel. Full-scale production of the weave has known yet begun, but the New Zanzibar elite have already managed to gain access to it. Expensive suits and dresses worn by the rich and powerful in the walled island city are more commonly being made out of Hariri-weave, which is becoming more of a status symbol in the city. The bodyguards of Ashur Icharia are drapped in hariri-weave, which is also designed to catch and absorb the impact of bullets and knives. It weight and strength are often employed by the elite of the city. Hariri-weave can catch glass from explosions and sniper bullets by block their direct path, all in its usage as curtains. However, as aforementioned, the lack of mass production of the weave has made it a luxury than a staple.
