The Advanced Automated Aviation Plants (or AAA) were specialized manufacturing factories created by Wernher and Noah Enterprises in the aftermath of the Ulysses Disaster. Each plant is capable of producing planes, avionics and weaponry without human intervention, and can produce nearly every design ever made if given the right materials.
These factories played an important role in the post-Ulysses world. They helped the boom of mercenary forces that rose to compensate for the global slashing of security forces. But terrorist groups also flourished and would often attack these plants to gain weapons for their causes. During the uprising by the so-called USEA Federation, several of these plants were seized by the group and used to arm their forces for battle against the United Nations Forces.
