It has been officially established by a Transitional Decree in 1993, and then ratified by the National Assembly in 1994. The idea of the establishment of the Military Industry Corporation, emerged in the early 1990s.. This industrial base was, then, called the Military Industry Corporation to be a part of the Ministry of Defense and to be directly supervised by the Commander-in- Chief, by the provisional Decree of 1993.

The MIC produces a vast array of products; such as heavy and light artillery, anti-tank and antiaircraft guns, light weaponry,such as machine guns, rifles and pistols.
