The FSB-03 Daniel was heavy fire support robot produced by Vickers-Chrysler Robotech Systems Inc. on Earth. The Daniel served with both the United Earth Defense Forces (UEDF) Tactical Corps and with the United Earth Expeditionary Force (UEEF) Marine Corps and Tactical Corps. Though the Daniel had four legs, which did allow it to walk, however slowly, it was primarily a hover vehicle. The Daniel’s primary weapon was a heavy laser cannon. The Mk. I variant also had a pair of Ion cannons mounted on the front legs. Due to the limited field of fire associated with their placement, they were not included on follow-on versions.
