Technical and Historical Notes

The Gilgamesh Confederation’s ATM-09-ST Scopedog proved to be a versatile design, and many variants were produced throughout the course of the Hundred Years War. One such variant was the ATM-09-STR Riot Dog, which featured several impact bars mounted on the head to protect the camera lens turret. In addition, a search light was added on the left shoulder. In addition, a shield was mounted on the left forearm. The Riot Dog’s armaments included the standard heavy machine gun/grenade launcher. The custom Riot Dog served as the personal riot control unit of Vance on his island prison. After the war, Vance became the fifth target of former soldier Merowlink Ality, who was seeking revenge upon the men who betrayed his comrades.
