Technical and Historical Notes

 

The AV-02 Clash Buster is a next generation police patrol labor designed by Shinohara Heavy Industries to replace their earlier model, the revolutionary AV-98 Ingram. The Clash Buster features a design similar to its predecessor, including the trademark police lights, revolver cannon and shield. By 2002, the Clash Buster has supplanted the Ingram, which has been relegated to serving as a data testbed at Shinohara. However, the situation changes when a coup is initiated by the right-wing National Defense Family, which has infiltrators within the Self-Defense Forces. To prevent any police resistance, the coup plotters dispatch several AFH-02B Hellhound attack helicopters to the SV2 station house, where they destroy every Clash Buster unit. In response, SV2 places the Ingrams back on active duty to hunt down and arrest National Defense Family leader Yukihito Tsuge.
