The ASUKA-SSL-96 Taisyo was a general purpose construction labor produced by Shinohara Heavy Industries. The Taisyo was an older design, but it was still commonly found in construction sites. In addition to construction, the Taisyo was re-branded as the ASUKA-MPL-96 to serve as a law enforcement unit for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. However, the police version of the Taisyo was identical, save for its color scheme and the addition of a siren.
