Technical and Historical Notes

 

The development of labors proves to be a boon to construction projects around the world. However, the increase of labors sparks a new type of crime: labor crime. To combat labor crime, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department creates its own labor division, Special Vehicles Section 2. At first, SV2 uses the ancient ASUKA-MPL96 Taisyo, which has simply been painted in police colors and outfitted with a siren. As labors become more advanced, SV2 keeps up with the times by replacing the Taisyo with the AV-98 Ingram, a labor designed specifically for law enforcement by Shinohara Heavy Industries. The Ingram's advanced design allows for more human-like movements. As a law enforcement labor, the Ingram is equipped with an anti-labor stun stick and a 37mm revolver cannon, but it can also carry a shotgun-like 90mm riot cannon. To facilitate transport to the field, each Ingram features its own transport trailer. Three units are assigned to SV2 Division 2 under the command of Capt. Kiichi Goto. Unit 1 is assigned to labor enthusiast Noa Izumi, while Unit 2 is assigned to gun maniac Isao Ota. Unit 3 is not used for police operations because it serves as a source of spare parts for Units 1-2. With its advanced design and intimidating appearance, the Ingram and SV2 quickly become a source of terror for criminals and civilians alike.
