Developed by the Secret Society, the ATH-14-WPC Snapping Turtle was a custom, high performance version of the ATH-14-WP Standing Turtle. The Snapping Turtle’s increased performance was due to a new operating system designed for Perfect Soldiers. The Snapping Turtle was used by the Perfect Soldier Ypsilon in several battles against Chirico Cuvie on planet Melkia’s Kummen jungle region.
