SILO uses weapons from several nations to prevent detectives from knowing where they originated. Defiant has a full armory from pistols to shoulder mounted antitank missiles. Often, they will conduct arms deals with allied mercenary organizations like the Knight Hawks. SILO was also contracted to field test the AR-H2, which has been quite a success in the organization and has adopted it as a heavier assault weapon.
SILO has also stated that they use same ammunition types from different countries to further cover their tracks.
- SILO HQ: The HQ is located in San Diego. It is also a facade like its ships, maintaining its office appearance. Most of the HQ is actually located underground.
- SILO Indomitable: SILO's Ohio-class submarine. Formerly the USS Nebraska. Unlike her sister SILO ships, she retains her US designated number SSBN-739 for SILO operations for the USA. She sports a powerful radar and several Trident missiles. In addition, she is often used to intercept enemy submarines. She is commanded by Lieutenant Commander Brendan Surrey.
- SILO Defiant: A modified and canceled Ticonderoga-class cruiser. She is the main ship of SILO's fleet sporting weapons of nearly every caliber. Although appearing as a rust bucket, it is actually a one of a kind war vessel. She was refitted in 2012 replacing her engines with metahydrodynamics using seawater as a near limitless fuel. The engine also provides power and can carry her nearly 40 knots. She sports a slew of weapons that rival most captial ships of any navy, including Trident Missiles, a powerful railgun prototype, 12 point defense turrets and an array of machine guns on various areas of the hull. She also has a pair of helipads that contain a JetRanger and a Ka-50. Commanded by Commander Victor Havok. She was originally going to be the USS Forks before being cancelled and bought by SILO.
- For air transport, SILO has four corporate CRJ-200s that are always on station and ready to go at a moment's notice. SILO-88 is piloted by Drew "Wraith" Barnett, a former Air Force pilot who flew for Delta Airlines before joining the corporation. The CRJ's are usually at a nearby airport when conducting a mission, but are primarily stored at Lindbergh field in San Diego.
- SILO has multiple safehouses stationed around the world:

SILO had a special relationship with the Knight Hawks with both companies occasionally completing what the other can't. SILO has also been caught between a feud between Special Actions Defense Corporation and the Knight Hawks. Although an ally of the latter, SILO refuses to partake in the feud on either side and is left out of the conflict. In return, SADC has declared that it will not attack or interfere with SILO's activities. So far neither PMC has appeared in a SILO novel. However, the Knight Hawks will make a brief appearance in the Locket.

Installments in the confirmedEdit
The ones that preceded this were somewhat based off of novels that I had previously read. The Locket is going to be made entirely from scratch. SILO's going to be everywhere, from a city in Morocco to the summit of the French Alps to the racetrack in Montreal just to name a few. There will be new faces, old ones and a huge race against time. The stakes have never been higher for SILO.
And they like it that way.
