Technical and Historical Notes

 

The AL-97B-var Hannibal is a military labor developed by Hishii Heavy Industries as a successor to earlier units like the AL-97 Atlas. The Hannibal is equipped with a sensor pod on its right shoulder and can mount an optional infrared searchlight on its left shoulder. Because the Hannibal's hands use three manipulator fingers instead of a full human-type hand, it doesn't carry any weapons. Armaments include a 20mm machine gun and rocket launcher. Hishii produces the Hannibal for several clients, including the Japan Self-Defense Forces and the United Nations. In 1999, a unit of UN Hannibals suffers heavy losses after an attack in Southeast Asia. In 2000, the SDF deploys a Hannibal unit to help trap a genetically engineered monster that has been stalking Tokyo Bay and destroying labors.
