The TFV-97EX Crabman High-Leg was an upgraded version of the TFV-97 Crabman. The High-Leg used its legs to make jumps. Like the Crabman, the High-Leg version was capable of operating on three legs if one of its legs was destroyed. With its raw power, the High-Leg was capable of threatening even the new AV-0 Peacemaker. In 1999, SV2 deployed both of its divisions in a joint operation to take down a High-Leg stolen by a terrorist that was hiding in a fuel depot.
