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. While responding to a dispatch call, SV2 AV-98 Ingram pilot Isao Ota chases down a Pickle and causes collateral damage to several cars, triggering an incident review from SV2's insurance company.
