Titan Type 10 Hachiman Robotic Vehicle
In 110PA 30 Custom Titan TR-003 Recon Robot Vehicles were built to accommodate the special needs of Wa-Daisho's military forces. These modifications included, a strengthened chassis capable of greater physical labor, a strengthened integral structure to permit it to operate as a true combat type, and to permit deep depth operations. Additional Weapons were also added, in an effort to bolster this vehicle type's performance. Appearance wise, it looked almost identical to the stock TR-003, with the exception of being a bit more bulky, having a larger, Naruni Nomad Scout-like head with sensors contained within, and having no sensor turret to the side.
Having been in service for a little over seven years, only two of the type were lost in action. The type, although wonderful for it's purpose, has become a relic and is outdated when compared to newer robot vehicle types - despite it's modifications. With new models being developed all the time, Wa-Daisho was forced to update their arsenal as well, and as of February 2, 118PA the remaining 28 Hachiman were lend-leased to Tolkeen to assist them in their war against the Coalition States.
