Technical and Historical Notes

 

The TFV-97 Crabman is a construction labor produced by Shinohara Heavy Industries. Like the earlier KV-98 (KV-93R) Pickle, the Crabman is equipped with four legs for use in construction projects in forests and mountainous areas. The Crabman is also equipped with roller wheels for driving along flat surfaces. The Crabman is capable of operating on three legs if one of its legs is destroyed. A medical research company uses a Crabman in a failed attempt to capture a genetically engineered monster that escaped from their mountain lab.
