Technical and Historical Notes

The ATH-14-WP Standing Turtle was a waterproofed variant of the ATH-14-ST Standing Tortoise. In addition to the waterproofing, the Standing Turtle was equipped with swamp clogs for underwater movement. The Standing Turtle’s standard armament included the arm punch and torso-mounted machine guns. It could also carry the same optional armaments used by the Standing Tortoise. The Standing Turtle was heavily used by Veela guerillas fighting against the Assemble EX-10 mercenary force on planet Melkia’s Kummen jungle region.
