Kanegawa Industries (Japanese: 金川工業, Kanegawa Kōgyō)[6][note 1], often shortened to KI, is an advanced technology industrial firm of Pacific Front in Japan.

Due to the ravages of war, projects of Kanegawa Industries were often met with setbacks, sometimes indefinitely.

The Kanegawa Industries are currently divided; one is affiliated with the Allies and the other affiliated with the Foehn Revolt.

History

When China's invasion in Japan had begun, Kanegawa Industries had already begun construction of Jackal Racer prototypes and research on particle collision weaponry (though inactive). Due to the successful occupation, Kanegawa Industries were forced to be cooperative with China as part of Japan's non-aggression pact with the former. The achievements of this coalition would remain unnoticed until the middle phase of the Mental Omega War, when Russia found and disturbed some new technologies that China relied on KI development by accident.

On the other side of the spectrum, several hidden KI scientists who were affiliated in the completion of the Paradox Project were evacuated by the Allies despite the Chinese occupation via chrono technology; they proved crucial in the development of advanced Allied technology, especially the Paradox Engine.

Furthermore, the KI scientists who were forced to work for China had started working together with Yunru to research technologies for use by a Chinese military division using unique equipment separate from the standardized Soviet arsenal.

Trivia

  • Kanegawa (金川) literally means "gold river" in Japanese.
  • It shares its name with another organization in Red Alert 3. However, Kanegawa Industries plays a larger role in Mental Omega, as they are responsible for a myriad of Allied advanced units, instead of a single unit like its Red Alert 3 counterpart.

Notes

  1. Despite of being written in Chinese hanzi, the rendering is correctly pronounced as "Kanegawa Kōgyō" in Japanese kanji.
