“The prototype arrives!
A new prototype model of Nacchin, popular for its unique design and high-spec articulated features, is joining Kotobukiya’s plastic model kit lineup!
JGSDF Type 07-Ⅲ Tank Nacchin is an original character created by the robot designer Moi, who is active on social media. With newly modeled parts and coloring, this newly designed prototype version is now available as a plastic model!
Not long after the rapid development of AI, the line between humans and machines was almost indistinguishable and technology to predict the future was taken for granted.
The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF) was the first to equip a new type of autonomous tank with a highly accurate future prediction AI.
While most people shied away from this technology and its near-human-level personality and communication skills, Captain Natsuki Kukuri nicknames her own unit “”Nacchin”” and treats it as an equal member of her team.
One day, while Natsuki and Nacchin are on duty, a sudden incident occurs that changes the world. What they once knew had been altered and fractured, resulting in the strange world they now find themselves in.
Finding that they are the only ones aware of this strange phenomenon, Natsuki and Nacchin set off in search of both an explanation and a way to turn things back.
The prototype of a new autonomous tank featuring a highly accurate future prediction AI.
It is being experimentally deployed in order to gather data to be used for the next Type 07 main battle tanks. Significant improvements on the hardware specs have been made compared to the Type 06, nicknamed “”Roku,”” currently deployed by the JGSDF.
