The Mamono Infantry Fighting Vehicle was designed by Pesht Motors to meet the demand for a new infantry transport when the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery shifted doctrines to embrace the widespread use of battle armor in combined-arms formations. The Mamono was intended to operate in areas where other transports such as the Hiryo were vulnerable to enemy fire.[1]

Manufactured on Unity and capable of transporting either a squad of battle armor suits or a complete platoon of conventional infantry in the eight-ton Infantry Compartment built into the vehicle, the Mamono was tougher and better armed than the Goblin and Hasek vehicles it resembled. Protected by ten tons of Reflective Armor and capable of limited amphibious operations, the Mamono was very popular with conventional infantry forces, but was noticeably less popular with the battle armor forces for which it had originally been designed.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Mamono mounted several turret-mounted weapon systems: a Shigunga MRM-40 launcher, enhanced by an Apollo fire control system, a Lord's Light 5 snub-nose particle projection cannon and a Chosatsugai no Kunai anti-missile system. Sperry Browning Light Machine Guns were fixed onto the left and right sides of the Marmono. Stored inside the body of the vehicle in ammunition bins protected by CASE were two tons of ammunition for the MRM 40, a ton of ammunition for the AMS and half a ton of ammunition for the Light Machine Guns.[1]


No variants of the Mamono were in service by 3145.[1]
