The Charter of Privateering was a UNSC charter that, in essence, legalized a very limited category of Piracy. More specifically, it was an tightly controlled doctrine that allowed regulated private military contractors to supply small numbers of privateering vessels and infantry assets to the UNSC Defense Force provided that they pass through a complex inspection. The first major company to embrace the charter was Haverson Defense, which began its contract with the UNSC in late 2556, only months after the signing of the charter.
Through the charter, private military organizations gained a number of privileges given they remain loyal to their contracts with the UNSC.
- Each organization would be able to operate up to two vessels armed with a single standard MAC, though they will only be rewarded this privilege if they have achieved a certain level of merit with the UNSC.
- Up to five vessels may be permitted to wield the M101 Support Cannon; as with the above stated, the actual number permitted for each PMC will be controlled by that organizations merit.
- All PMC translight engines must remain under the newly instated speed limit of 3.5 LPD, no exceptions.
- In order to enforce regulations, a UNSC inspection detail may be placed on board a traveling private vessel. The UNSC also reserves the right to dock any vessel that they feel is improperly equipped.
