Police Patrol Labors
Notes: The Ingram AV-98 (AV stands for "Advanced Vehicle") was developed specially for the police force to combat Labor crime. It is styled in a way to look menacing. The main unit comes with two weapons; an electric baton (or stun stick, a weapon that can stop Labors with high powered electric currents) which is stored under it's shield in it's left arm, and a 37mm revolver cannon, stored in it's left leg. A 90mm riot gun was also developed by the mechanics at the SV2 for the Ingram. The Second Division of the SV2 use these Labors. Ota's AV-98 (Unit 2) has a customised head which is very different to the standard issue. Unit 3 (the spare Labor) also has a customised head. In "Patlabor 2 the movie", Unit 3 was developed as an experimental anti-electronic warfare Labor by Shinohara Heavy Industries, and it's head is equipped with ECM (Electronic Counter Measures) jamming pod.
Notes: Based upon an old construction Labor, the Asuka-SSL-96 Taisyo. The term MPL stands for "Main Police Labor". This Labor was modified to create the first Patrol Labor. Though the only real modification was the addition of a light unit, police siren and a paint job. The first unit of the SV2 in the original OVA, and second unit in the first episode of the TV series used these Labors. They are fairly clunky and weren't much use against many criminal Labors.
AV-X0 (AV-2) Type X-0 "Zero"
Notes: Essentially the AV-98 Ingram on steroids, this Patrol Labor is much more stronger than the Ingram and can lift a small construction Labor up with one hand a break it in to two. This Labor was designed with hand to hand combat in mind. In "Patlabor the movie", Kanuka Clancy pilots the Labor while it is infected with the Babel Virus. Shinohara have also produced a version for the New York Police Department called the AV-02 Clash Buster which comes with a 44mm cannon, but this Labor does not appear in the anime.
Notes: Used by Division 1 in the TV series. This Labor may not be as good as the Ingram, but is still effective against most construction Labors. The term MPL stands for "Main Police Labor".
AV-0 Peacemaker (Zero)
Notes: The AV-0 Peacemaker is pretty much the TV version of Patlabor the movie's "Zero", with the exception of some design changes and a new operating system, the Neuron Network System. Division 1 receives these Labors at the end of the TV series to replace the aging Python.
Notes: Not much information about this Labor. It appears in "Patlabor 2 the movie", and is the replacement for the Ingram for Division 2.
Type 99 Road Runner
Notes: Used for traffic control by the Tokyo Highway patrol, its arms and legs will extend from its basic 'car' mode, allowing it to literally ride over other vehicles and manipulate objects. It is used by the Kanagawa Prefectural Police. It only appears briefly in "Patlabor 2 the movie".
Notes: This Training Labor is seen only in the episode "The Tragedy of L" in the Original OVA Series (AKA Early Days). The term MPL stands for "Main Police Labor".
Notes: Training Labor seen in the TV episode "Kanuka Has Arrived". The design was also reused in the parody episode of the New OVA Series, "The Woman Who Came from the Stars".
Notes: Training Labor seen only in "Patlabor 2 the movie".
