The SR-70 Saturn was a security labor produced by Toyohata Auto, which actually served as a front company for Schaft Enterprises Japan. Based on the prototype labor SRX-70, the Saturn was initially intended for use by police departments, but the unit ended up proving popular with private security firms. The Saturn’s armament differed somewhat from the SRX-70, including a revolver, commando knife, stun stick and shield. In 1999, Schaft employee Kurosaki posed as an employee of Holly Security Services and used several Saturns as part of an elaborate deception to have the experimental Type-R13EX Phantom attack a JSDF labor training ground in Oshima. The goal: lure out the Tokyo police’s SV2 labor unit and its AV-98 Ingram to fight the Phantom and gather combat data.
