Japanese Dragon Helps Fight the Snow, Crime, and Eats Babies: " Shit is getting crucial over in Japan now that they have this ED2000 mofo rolling the streets. Hyper rescue robot 'T-52 Enryu' (rescue dragon) from Tmsuk first appeared in March 2004 but now he's wandering the highways and byways saving stranded motorists from having to each each other like sashimi. It is 11.3 ft high and with a weight of 11,020 lbs. On February 1, 2006, Enryu showed his POWER in snowy environments and in a test rescued a dummy buried under snow in his car. Enryu can lift 1102 lbs. with one hand and double that with both hands, but then where will he hold is coffee? He's is still in development and expected to play an active part in rescues where it is difficult to work for human being rescue teams or where there are worries about secondary disasters.
