5DR mech mechanic's backstory
I've got a question from a modeler who assembled the miniature mechanic/pilot of the 5DR mecha and who works on some diorama ideas. He asked what type of rescues the pilot is doing with the mech. Interestingly he used to work as a firefighter so his mind went to that, but wanted to fit into the universe created here.
So here's some info. The 5DR mech kit contains entire history in the manual. A relevant excerpt would be:
The machine was intended to provide the specialized equipment useful for technical rescue, hence the "RESCUE LABOR" nickname.
There are cutters/pliers, a circular saw, and foam grenades, so firefighting/road rescue is a pretty close topic too :)
