Wow, I remembered this thing crashing through its own factory wall, but I forgot that Taro was just running over factory workers and sending the rest of them scrambling for safety. Those co-pilots going AWOL is making more sense all the time.

I guess the sawblades helped with the breaking out of the factory, though it looks like that cannon is big and tough enough to have hammered its way out on its own. The purpose of the arms will become clear soon enough.

I think Flo first summarized this plot to me as, to paraphrase, “This will be happening as the culmination of all the love letters to Metal Gear I’ve seeded through the series, and I need you not to try to stop me.”
