Technical and Historical Notes

Developed by Eden City’s E=X, the E=X Garland was an anti-netjacker machine soldier similar to the various Garland models developed centuries earlier by the Megazone 23. Like the earlier Garland designs, the E=X Garland could transform from its motorcycle “motoform” to the machine soldier “G-form.” The E=X Garland was designed to work in teams of three with backup from the Net Police’s E=X Flagger to track and detain suspected netjackers. The E=X Garland was armed with a pair of shoulder-mounted missile launchers, a pair of knives and a beam gun. The E=X Garland was rolled out and immediately assigned for use by new recruits like Eiji Takanaka. When the Orange gaming company started a rebellion and fields its Hargan III machine soldiers, the E=X Garland was immediately sent into battle. During the rebellion, Eiji made contact with Eve Tokimatsuri, who declared that he was the new operator of 7G who would take over for GR-00X Prototype Garland pilot Shogo Yahagi. At the battle’s end, Eiji’s E=X Garland was damaged in a fight with E=X bureau director Yacob Halm’s Original Garland.
