Technical and Historical Notes

 

The KV-98 (KV-93R) Pickle is a mountain construction labor produced by Shinohara Heavy Industries. Its tripod leg design makes it stand out from a typical labor, which is humanoid shaped. The Pickle's tripod leg structure makes it ideally suited for work in mountainous areas. One unit is stolen by terrorists and equipped with a powerful cannon. The unit is pursued by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's new AV-98 Ingrams on their first assignment. With its high mobility and grappling hook, the Pickle manages to behead Isao Ota's Unit 2 and sever the right arm of Noa Izumi's Unit 1. The terrorists using the Pickle threaten to fire at a temple, but the Pickle is immobilized when Noa attacks with her severed arm as a "rocket punch" inspired by super robot anime.
