History

When Brenodian troops came up against Northern Faction Special Forces, it was found the current Mark 9 Pistol was insufficient for dealing with modern threats. The Military Acquisition Board of the Brenodian Military put out a formal request in 148-AGC to all manufacturers to come up with a new 'Mark 10' Sidearm for the Military. Several Sidearms were put forward towards this military trial two years later in 150-AGC. Ultimately the submission by Falcon Firearms survived all tests of the trials, capable of penetrating the new Northern Faction's Body Armor at 50 Meters utilizing a new proprietary cartridge, the .40 Falcon. Which was a massive improvement in ballistic capability over the older 9mm Brenodi Cartridge.
