Technical and Historical Notes

The HAL X-10 was an experimental heavy attack labor developed in partnership by manufacturers Shinohara and Hishii for the Japan Self-Defense Forces. The tank-like X-10 was equipped with four legs that allowed it to move through mountainous or forest terrain, although its legs also housed wheels. The X-10 was also equipped with a hover unit for high speed mobility. The X-10 featured a humanoid head that was used to scan the battlefield and locate enemies. The X-10 could mount a variety of armaments, including a smoothbore cannon, anti-aircraft gun, ATM launcher, missile launchers and smoke dischargers. In 1999, an X-10 unit escaped from its testing grounds into a forest area. In response, the JSDF deployed an airborne ARL-99 Helldiver unit along with attack helicopters and ground troops. After the threat was eliminated, ground troops were surprised to discover that the rogue unit was unmanned. Although unknown at the time, this incident was an early example of a hidden program built into Shinohara’s new hyper operating system that caused labors to go berserk under certain conditions.
