_Standard Tachikoma equipment includes a light machine gun mounted in the right arm, a secondary weapon in the "snout" (either a rocket-propelled grenade launcher or a six-barrelled minigun), and a built-in optical camouflage device.

_Though they possess individual artificial intelligence, every night they are synchronised, so they start the next day with identical consciousnesses that are each the sum of their total collective experience & development. This leads to identity confusion, since each Tachikoma has the same memories.

_It is explained in the last episode of the first season that it is their curiousity that lets them be different from each other. It is curiousity that saves a personality from dying when linked with others.

_A notable paradox arises from this synchronisation, however. Though the Tachikoma have identical memories, their personalities and opinions are distinct. During the Stand Alone Complex series, an episode is entirely devoted to discussions among them.
