The Taiho (大鵬,   Taihō) is a powerful mobile missile launcher which first appeared in the 2001 Toho Godzilla film, Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack.


Millennium series

Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

Initially, the Taiho was first used to seek out survivors from an Earthquake caused by Baragon. The twin D-03 Missiles fired from the vehicle burrowed through the ground to make the search easier.

As the battle between Godzilla and the two guardians Mothra and King Ghidorah raged in Tokyo, the JSDF decided to assist the two guardians in their fight, and deployed a set of Taihos along with several units of infantry. The powerful vehicles drove into place and bombarded the demonic beast with their payloads, forcing him back in bouts of pain from the drill noses of the D-03 Missiles. However, the beast's ire was then placed on the JSDF, and he made the vehicles explode with blasts of his Atomic Breath.

I think it's funny how this thing shares the same name as the Japanese word for cannon, "taihō (大砲)."
