Introduced in ZAC 2034, the Zoid was a pioneer in high-speed and stealth combat. What it lacked in armor it made up for in stealth. The Helcat was designed for surprise attacks in forest and Mountain regions, and was nicknamed “The Jungle Assassin” because of its advanced stealth technology and its ability to engage enemy forces silently. This left more noticeable Zoids like the Command Wolf and other Republic Zoids outmatched in battle, and the Helcat would continue to be used with great effect.
