In the last six years of the Hundred Years War, no name was feared more than the Gilgamesh Confederation’s elite Red Shoulder Battalion. Nicknamed the “Bloodsucker Battalion,” these specially-trained soldiers were infamous for their savagery on the battlefield – no distinction was made between enemy, civilian and even ally. The Red Shoulder Battalion was easily recognized by their heavily armored custom ATM-09-ST Scopedog units, painted with a red shoulder. Following the end of the war, former Red Shoulder Chirico Cuvie hid from the Secret Society and the corrupt Woodo City police force on planet Melkia. To wage battle against the police, Chirico’s friend Vanilla Vartla outfitted a Battling arena Scopedog with heavy weapons to create a unit similar to those used by the now-disbanded Red Shoulders. These armaments included a standard heavy machine gun, arm punch, Gatling gun, solid shooter, rocket launcher and SSM launcher. Although the custom unit struck fear in Chirico’s enemies, Vanilla did get one detail wrong – Red Shoulder units were painted red on the right shoulder, not the left.
