The HL-96 Tyrant 2000 was a heavy duty construction labor produced by Hishii Heavy Industries. The Tyrant’s powerful body made it well-suited to construction, and it could match the power of the AV-98 Ingram. Because the Tyrant was so widely used across Tokyo, it was often stolen and used in labor crime.
