It was the Unit used by both section one and section two of the special vehicles unit until being replaced by the Python and the Ingram respectively. Adapted from a civilian construction company it didn't have the capabilities of his successors nor did it have any fixed or optional weapons and the pilot was only able to rely on the labor's brute strength. Its results were mediocre at best being defeated by a construction labor at beginning of the series.
