Technical and Historical Notes

The ATM-09-RC Bounty Dog was a member of Gilgamesh’s “dog” series of armored troopers. This customized unit was equipped with a wire wench on the left arm that replaced one arm punch. With this wench, the Bounty Dog could scale mountainsides, buildings or grapple to safety during a fall. In addition to the arm punch, the Bounty Dog was armed with a compact heavy machine gun/grenade launcher. After the war, a squad of Bounty Dogs led by Boyle chased after former soldier Merowlink Ality through the abandoned city of Kerama.
