The AV-98F O-Bart-Morters was a giant leap over the AV-98 Ingram, except for one minor problem: it never existed. The O-Bart-Morters was an imaginary labor that appeared in a dream of SV2 Ingram pilot Noa Izumi. The massive O-Bart-Morters was equipped with fixed wings and a rocket booster, giving it the capability to fight aerial crime. In the real world, Noa’s dream was mocked by fellow officer Asuma Shinohara, who commented that flight-capable labors were at least a decade away.
