- Introduction

 The Shield Liger DCS-J (Double Cannon Special Jet) which simultaneously enhances the firing power and fighting performance of the Shield Liger, has been added to the HMM series!

 Most of the parts, such as the black exterior and frame, are renewed with new molding colors from the original Shield Liger MK-II. Not only is the Shield Liger itself movable, but the Double Beam Cannons can be expanded as a set, and the guns can also be raised up.

 Please add this Jet Lion, from the high-speed Zoid specialists running under the title of Leomaster to your lineup!

Gimmicks

 The hatch on the cockpit opens and closes, and a general pilot figure is included and can board it.

 ⚫ The Zoid Core built into the body can be attached or detached.

 ⚫ The AMD 2-Barrelled 20mm Beam Cannon on the back is recreated with movable storage components and deployment.

 ⚫ The Beam Cannon equipped to the arms on each side can be expanded, and the angle of the gun can be elevated at the mounted joint.

 ⚫ There is a 3mm diameter hole in part of the Anti-Zoid 3-Barrelled Shock Cannon, which corresponds with the flying bases that are sold separately (we recommend the Flying Base Neo)

- History Of Shield Liger DCS-J

 - The Blue Wind of the Republic

 In the Central Continent War between the Helic Republic and the Zenebas Empire, which began in ZAC 1980, the first ever assault combat Zoid, the Sabre Tiger (later called the Saber Tiger) developed by the Zenebas Empire led to the first arms race. The way that Zoids fought was entirely changed. Most of the Republican Zoids couldn't cope with the Sabre Tiger, which could engage in fighting battles while maintaining both high speed and high maneuverability.

 The Republican Army, which was backed into a corner, thoroughly researched a Sabre Tiger that had been captured, and completed the Shield Liger, a high-speed fighting Zoid with the same body as the Sabre Tiger, only following a different design concept. The Shield Liger, which had seemingly contradictory abilities of high-speed fighting and defensive abilities by use of an energy shield, was more than a match for the Sabre Tiger, and prevented the Republican Army's front lines from collapsing.

 - MK-II Unit

 At the end of the Central Continent War, the enhanced black tiger, the Great Sabre, suddenly appeared on the front lines, which at the time were an all-out battle of massive firepower. The nightmare of the Republican Forces had returned. In the mountainous region where super-large Zoids had difficulty evading, the onslaught of the Empire's strongest troops, which consisted mostly of Great Sabres, forced the Republican Army into a retreat, and it looked like the war situation was changing considerably.

 However, the Republican Army immediately started carrying out improvements on the Shield Liger. They completed the new Shield Liger MK-II, which strengthened its shooting abilities, the main weak point of the unit, while sacrificing mobility. They named it the MK-II, and also carried out similar improvements for the Command Wolf and Bear Fighter. They placed these units on the front lines, and as they approached the Empire, they were able to push their army back once again. The Tiger of the Empire and the Lion of the Republic would continue to play an active role as rivals for a long time to come, until the end of the Intercontinental War and even the Western Continent War.

 - Double Cannon Special

 In ZAC 2099, the Shield Liger was valued as the main Zoid of the Republican Army, during a time when large Zoids had decreased following the great catastrophe. However, as the Western Continent War against the Guylos Empire broke out, and the stalemate at the front lines required a wide range of forces, from fighting units to artillery battles, gaining versatility was important to form a proper response, and so the former Shield Liger MK-II was enhanced and its artillery abilities adjusted to become the Shield Liger DCS (Double Cannon Special). By deploying the DCS and normal Shield Liger in various ratios to the front lines, over and over again, they were able to compensate for each other's shortcomings and achieved great results.

 - Comprehensive Strengthening Plan

 In ZAC 2100, the Republican Army had achieved great results by introducing the DCS to the front lines, but on an ever-intensifying battlefield, it became difficult to maintain the front lines due to a shortage of units. Therefore, in order to respond to all battlefield situations with a single Shield Liger, a plan was announced to forcibly increase its mobility, which had been reduced by installing the Beam Cannons, by increasing its output. As a result of major modifications made to the power engine, the maneuverability and acceleration increased, reaching top speeds of 285 km/h, which exceeded the normal Shield Liger.

 Of course, that also resulted in the machine's balance suffering, and the deterioration of maneuverability due to the forced acceleration and the burden on the pilot caused by sudden braking exceeded a level that normal soldiers could handle for a general-purpose Zoid. As a result, only seven units were produced, and the plan was cancelled. This extremely sensitive unit was sent to the front lines in search of a pilot who could handle it, so that they might obtain actual combat data on its development for the next-generation machine.

 - The 7 Leomasters

 The fully modified DCS improved the output of the beam cannons as well as its mobility, and aside from its handling difficulty, it was a force to be reckoned with. Therefore, the unit was handed over to the high-speed Zoids specialists active in each unit, who made minor adjustments to it and then put it out on the front lines. The seven individuals who could control the rampaging lions were called the Leomasters, and each had a different colored coat of arms. In order to bring out the color of the emblems, the unit was painted jet black, a jet black color that shined like a jewel when polished, and it was officially named the DCS-J (Double Cannon Special Jet).

 The 7 great pilots were Arthur Borgmann (red emblem), Ray Gregg (blue emblem), Ceres Ardoise (purple emblem), Cicily Volta (pink emblem), Mizumo Tomii (green emblem), Amy Ishikawa (yellow emblem), and Judge Lyre (white emblem). The Seven Leomasters were each active on the front lines with their jet-black Ligers, and later changed Zoids every time a new Liger type was developed, but the lion coat of arms was transferred to each new unit, and the title of Leomaster became a legend that was passed down among the soldiers of the Republic.
