Famous Mecha in History: Patlabor

AV-98 “Ingram” from Patlabor

In the future, monstrously large robots are called “labors” and do a variety of heavy construction Av-98-patlaborjobs. As a result they are also used in criminal enterprises. To combat this new threat the police create “Special Vehicle” units, and the mecha of Tokyo’s SV-2 unit is Shinohara Industries’ Advanced Vehicle Type 98, codename “Ingram”. The anime “Patlabor” follows the adventures of SV-2 as it combats labor crime in the far-flung future year of 1998!
