Technical and Historical Notes

 

The CRL-98 Pyro-Buster is a fire emergency labor produced by Hishii Heavy Industries and used by the Tokyo Fire Department. To fulfill its main role of extinguishing fires, the Rescue Labor is equipped with a pair of large water cannons on its shoulders that are fed by large water storage tanks on its back. The Pyro-Buster is designed to also deal with hazardous chemical situations and is also equipped with precise manipulator fingers on its left arm. In 1998, both the fire and police departments are called out for a high risk job when a fire breaks out at the Tower City skyscraper under construction in Tama. As the fire labors deal with the fire, the police's AV-98 Ingrams carry out a rescue of the personnel and dignitaries trapped high in the tower. In late 1999, the police and fire departments respond to arson inside the Chiyoda Tunnel. While dealing with the fire, it's determined to have been caused by a bomb that was planted to lure SV2 Division 2 away while the experimental Type J-9 Griffon attacks Division 1's new AV-0 Peacemaker units.
