In May 1980, Gwangju, Korea,

innocent civilians protesting

for democracy were massacred

by their own soldiers.

With 4. 112 killed or wounded, it was

the most casualties since the Korean War.

With that crime as a foothold,

the head of the

military became South Korea's

1 1 th President.

This is a work of fiction,

using the above facts as its background.

The striking range is 00 meters?.


I told You,

it's impossible with an air rifle.

You didn't believe me.

And You insisted I make it.

It's too Iate now. The money's all paid.

This here is a modified

industrial compressor.

If You compress the air, it's possible.

It's a bit slow,

5 seconds per compression.

Too little compression,

and it'll be weak,

but if You give it too much,

it explodes.





Damn it!
