Technical and Historical Notes

 

The AFL-98 Lhada is a military labor produced by Yotsubishi Heavy Industries and utilized by the United Nations. Unlike most other labors, the Lhada has a tank body instead of a humanoid one, similar to the prototype HAL X-10. However, the Lhada's six wheeled legs provide it with more maneuverability than the average tank. The Lhada is equipped with a sensor and camera pod that allows the pilots to scan the area for hostiles. Its sole armament consists of a 25mm chain gun mounted in its forward section. In 1999, a UN unit operating in Southeast Asia comes under attack from enemy forces. After several AL-97B-var Hannibal units are destroyed by rocket-propelled grenades, Lhada pilot Yukihito Tsuge opens fire against orders in self-defense. However, his Lhada is damaged when it takes fire from an enemy tank. Tsuge's negative experience on the mission later becomes the basis of his forming the right-wing National Defense Family and the launching of a coup in Tokyo three years later.
