Assault Rifles

Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) soldiers are armed with the Howa Type 89 as their main assault rifle during the operation to kill Wasted XIII. They are used by JGSDF soldiers when they confront Wasted XIII after being engaged previously by SV2 Ingrams.

Labor Weapons

Revolver Cannon

The Type 98 "Ingram" labors used by the SVU are armed with massive 37mm revolver cannons based on the Colt Python as their sidearms. The weapon has the Colt logo on the grip replaced with the Chrysanthemum seal, which is the de-facto seal of the Japanese government and royal family, and is stored in a compartment in the labor's lower right leg when not in use. One drawback of the weapon is that the pilot has to exit the labor in order to manually reload it, spare rounds also being stored in the same leg compartment.

In the Wasted XIII movie, only Ota uses it since it's loaded with an anti-virus bullet as made by the JGSDF's Chemical Weapons Division. Unlike the ones seen in the 2 Patlabor movies, the Revolver Cannons appear to have six-inch barrels mounted on them, suggesting a possible upgrade over the earlier four-inch model.
