The Canine Combatant Research (CCR) was a research program developed by the Allies.
The initiative sought to use attack dogs bred from German Shepherds for combat engagements. The research program was fifty years old and based in Newark, New Jersey and through its overwhelming success, the Allied Council agreed to establish seven more campuses across the globe which were tasked with training specially bred German Shepherds in the arts of field recon, tracking, guard duty and other forms of unarmed lupine combat.
The CCR program sought to also include armored forms of assault with tactical weaponry as part of the core curriculum but this ended in disaster. However, the most recent CCR graduates had now gained a new tool which is an adapted version of the WP100 Sonic Disruptor.
