Technical and Historical Notes

Though hard evidence was lacking, the DT-6800 Daughtress Tank likely served as the prototype for the mass production DT-6800A Daughtress mobile suit. If so, this early crude mobile suit was quite inferior to the actual Daughtress. The upper part of the body consisted of a Daughtress torso mounted onto a tank. Instead of hands and forearms, the Daughtress Tank featured a 70mm Gatling guns in their place. However, due to their poor mobility the Daughtress Tanks didn’t stand much of a chance against bipedal mobile suits. Like most of the other Daughtress types, large numbers of Daughtress Tank units survived the 7th Space War and fell into the hands of various parties. One such unit was purchased by Vulture pilot Witz Sou’s family in the Midwestern United States to defend their farmland from roaming marauders in A.W. 0015.
