Every year, General Bursov tries to get the Touro mothballed and every year he gets laughed out of the War Council. The Touro's combat legacy is completely justified. Maintenance gets a bit messy with the successive upgrades to the combat jack and fire control systems on these things but the chassis lasts forever, which is usually what the NEP is worried about. Only thing that wears out on this classic legs unit are the shoe pads.

Modesto Pires' Touro is armed with an Abbot 105mm cannon, a Mãe Dois 12.7mm machine gun, and a Smoke projector for defense. This loadout is tough, versatile, and effective at any range. Good all-around damage.

- In the Brigador Audiobook, Captain Edwina Blake, nicknamed Steady Ed, drives a Touro, armed with a quad-barrelled Artillery weapon, and a Bully laser for a turret. The achievement Steady Ed (earned when an operation is completed with a Touro equipped with Balão, Bully, and Smoke Projector) is a reference to it.
