General Notes

Not to be outdone by their colleagues in law enforcement, the Coalition Defense Force commissioned a military version of the basic Guardian used by the Coalition Customs Bureau. BEC obliged with the BC-06CFGM Guardian Ground type, Military Variant.

The Military Guardian featured enhanced armor, an expanded visual senors suite, and an array of optional hand armaments including a plasma rifle, plasma swords, and a single-shot missile launcher. Lacking an organized enemy to fight, the CDF Guardians were mainly relegated to guard duty and parades.

Until the HALO Conflict of CY 40.

    Cool mechs.
    Are tanks and APCs still manufactured or have the mechas taken over those roles?

    1. There are still APCs. Tanks were manufactured up until the Kazoku War of CY 1, but by CY 40 there was really no role left for them to fill.
