After Tachikoma and their AI were destroyed due to their sacrifice in order to prevent a nuclear detonation. They are replaced by Uchikoma.
Behind the SceneEdit
- The design of Uchikoma is mainly based on Fuchikoma from the original manga with some feature from Tachikoma, such as the leg.
- There is some controversy over this name, as the Bandai DVDs refer to these tanks as "Fuchikoma", due to a misunderstanding dealing with the pronunciation of the "hu/fu" sound and comic source. However, all artbook and model kit resources clearly label these hybrid machines "Uchikoma".
