Technical and Historical Notes

 

The MPL-97S Python is a law enforcement patrol labor manufactured by Manabe Heavy Industries. As a law enforcement unit, it's equipped with a stun stick and shield to fight off other labors. The Python is used by Division 1 of the Tokyo police's Special Vehicles Section 2. When Division 2 upgrades to Shinohara's new AV-98 Ingram, Division 1 is left with the aging Python. After several false starts at upgrades, Division 1 formally adopts the new AV-0 Peacemaker as its main unit in 1999. The dependable Python is then relegated to serving as a training labor.
