The B-ATM-001-PT Busy Crab was a light mid-class AT designed mainly for patrol duty. It was smaller than the standard AT, and its glass canopy cockpit left the pilot vulnerable to attack. Because it was intended for patrol, the Busy Crab wasn’t used in the front lines and was armed with only a claw and 50mm machine gun. One Busy Crab was modified to be mentally controlled by Radaa Niva, a Balarant experimental Perfect Soldier filled with cybernetic implant. Radaa placed the kidnapped Fyana inside the Busy Crab’s cockpit and handcuffed her to the controls as part of a cat-and-mouse game with Chirico Cuvie.
