While the Army was fielding its own walkers, the CGU Marines were left out. Tests done with modified marine-type Wolf mechs were unsatisfactory. To this end, the Marines ordered an amphibious field walker, capable of moving underwater and attack on land, to augment their ageing arsenal of amphibious mecha. This produced the Sealion Amphibious Walker, a rugged, sturdy mechanised walker armed to the teeth for oceanic and amphibious warfare. Designed with a more organic and streamlined shape, the Sealion also integrated hydro-jets for greater underwater speed, and a pair of high-output water-cooled reactor to power the directed-energy weapons mounted in detachable, wire-guided arms. Deployed in the late 3280's, the Sealion became valuable to Marine operations in combating remnant and rebel forces in the Milky Way, and later during the Magellanic War on worlds with large ocean cover.
