Although labors were most commonly used for construction projects, labor manufacturers also developed labors for military use. One such unit was the land combat Type-5G/1C Grau-Bear developed by Schaft Enterprise’s European branch, known as SEE. When Schaft’s prototype Type-7B/2B Brocken was stolen after its secret delivery to Japan, the company stepped in and attempted to recover the it by dispatching two Grau-Bears, but they were stopped by the Tokyo police department’s Special Vehicles Section 2 and its AV-98 Ingram.
