As the Gilgamesh Confederation built customized ATs for its Perfect Soldiers, so too did the Balarant Union. Appearing after the Hundred Years War, the B-ATH-XX Ecrevisse “Danger Melon” built up an undefeated record at the Battling ring in the Melkian city of Aa Koba. The highly maneuverable Ecrevisse featured a wide variety of armaments, including dual machine guns and missile launchers, a pile banker and a crab claw. It was piloted by Radaa Niva, an experimental Balarant PS who was nearly killed by the elite Red Shoulders and as a result was filled with cybernetic implants. The implants made him stronger than normal and allowed him to control the Ecrevisse with his mind, but at the cost of emotional stability. Radaa’s perfect win record continued until an encounter with Chirico Cuvie and his ATM-09-LC Light Scopedog.
