The '''Mamono Infantry Fighting Vehicle''' was designed by Pesht Motors to meet the demand for a new infantry transport when the [[Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery]] shifted doctrines to embrace the widespread use of [[battle armor]] in combined-arms formations. The Marmono Mamono was intended to operate in areas where other transports such as the [[Hiryo]] were vulnerable to enemy fire.<ref name="TRO:3145DCp24+"/>
Manufactured on [[Unity]] and capable of transporting either a squad of battle armor suits or a complete [[platoon]] of conventional infantry in the eight-ton [[Infantry Compartment]] built into the vehicle, the Mamono was tougher and better armed than the [[Goblin]] and [[Hasek]] vehicles it resembled. Protected by ten tons of [[Reflective Armor]] and capable of limited amphibious operations, the Mamono was very popular with conventional infantry forces, but was noticeably less popular with the battle armor forces for which it had originally been designed.<ref name="TRO:3145DCp24+"/>
