Description and History
Also known as the “Fish Truck”, this large cargo vehicle was utilized to transport perishable sea food products. This large truck has it’s own mechanical refrigeration systems and was active all over South Ataria Island in 2009. When then civilian pilot Hikaru Ichijo crashed into the urban centers of the island in a VF-1D Valkyrie, his unskilled attempts to move the battroid mode had the mecha fallen into the side of the Chinese restaurant where Lynn Minmay worked. Two large refrigerator trucks, stopped by the battroid obstructing the road, made use of their towing cables in an attempt to upright the fallen mecha. Unfortunately, Ichijo’s VF-1D simply fell onto the other side of the street. The two drivers, having helped to cause more damage to the surrounding buildings, hastily departed.
