- Command Wolf Introduction

    Command Wolf was originally developed by the Republican Army in an attempt to roll out a high speed unit to assist in battle with the Shield Liger. The swift canine proved to be useful in the war and even far down the line would continue to see use through countless variations, many of which focused in rearming the Zoid's back mounted weapons. This allowed it to see quite a lot of real combat situations in its prime and cemented its role in future medias.

    While working with different weapon sets the Zoid's mobility is usually paramount. Rarely is it equipped with much more than a new back weapon. Of course this may not be necessary since the Zoid's Electron Bite Fangs are known to be particularly destructive in close range combat.

- Details of Design

. [Claws]
    A minor thing, really, but in most medias the Command Wolf is featured with very sharp claws. This is a huge deviation in weapon design from the model kit and other battle story universes in which they appear to be a blunt force weapon. Kind of strange to change considering they are also hardly, if ever used in said media.

- Weapon Information

50 mm Anti-Zoid Double Barrel Beam Gun: A single gun is equipped to the standard Command Wolf, with two barrels that both fire energy beams. A seat is mounted between the guns, allowing one pilot to control the turret independently while the second focuses on driving the Zoid.





Electron Bite Fang: This technique charges power into the fangs. When the Zoid bites down it sears through armor with a more powerful amplification than just using the fangs.
     Media use changes, from being an energy based cutter (like the Laser Sabers of Liger Zero) to actually dumping electricity into the enemy Zoid. This technique is especially dangerous, implying that the electrical use is more accurate and is sometimes portrayed to destroy Zoids from the inside out.



- Equipment Information

Smoke Discharger X2: The smoke dischargers deploy a huge smoke cloud that help to hide the Zoid while it escapes combat. In some medias smoke merely leaks from the barrels but in more realistic anime depictions it launches cannisters from each barrel, which bounce behind the Zoid and detonate.

- Primary Appearances

* Primary media appearances include those where the Zoids are more distinguished characters.


     Command Wolf's most prominent media influence spawns from Chaotic Century, where it was piloted by the mercenary Irvine. Though the basic unit was later upgraded to the IS it appeared in standard form with custom colors. The Zoid also appeared in many different colors and incarnations through both Chaotic Century and Guardian Force. One of the most common was the desert colored Command Wolf.



Although less famous across various medias the second primary appearance of the Command Wolf was in Zoids New Century Zero. Piloted by another mercenary, Brad Hunter, it actually lived out the remainder of its anime life with the Blitz Team, even when money was short. Similar to the IS it was upgraded part way through from the LC to AC variation, changing equipment to distinguish it from the earlier variant.



Once more the Command Wolf appeared as a primary character in anime media. In Zoids Fuzors it was piloted by Maskman (Helmet in the English version) and though it was similar to Brad's Command Wolf AC it broke the norm. Not only by not having permanent equipment upgrades part way through, but also by staying for the entirety of the series. Unlike the others it was not replaced, but rather, upgraded to the Command Striker via fusion.



Many people familiar with the Chaotic Century anime may recall that Zeke, the Organoid, is named after Van's father's Zoid, a white Command Wolf also named Zeke. In the manga this Zoid makes a much bigger appearance, staying for two of the fourteen volumes. It was reawakened from its slumber atop Dan's grave in order to fight Raven's rampaging Saber Tiger. In this media the Zoid had its own unique attack, the Ragnarok Fang.




The Zoids SS manga was split into partial story fragments, with a few chapters dedicated to each Zoid in the Original line. Here the Command Wolf RGC made its appearance, controlled by three different pilots working alongside Captain Zappa. They were essential in stopping the Geno Ritter from its onslaught of attacks on Federation Army military sights. Its limited ammunition made its use very tentative, however.
