The Anti-Personnel Control Squad (対人制圧部隊 Taijin Seiatsu Butai?), also known as the Anti-Personnel Vertical Maneuvering Equipment Squad (対人立体機動部隊 Taijin Rittai Kidō Butai?), was an elite squad of soldiers recruited from the Military Police Brigade and led by Kenny Ackerman.[1] Its members were highly competent, being capable of killing Survey Corps soldiers in an ambush before they could retaliate.[2]


The Anti-Personnel Control Squad was officially created to oppose the Survey Corps, however that was a false justification given by Kenny Ackerman so that the Assembly would give their approval. Their true purpose was the pursuit of Captain Kenny Ackerman's dream, specifically to obtain the godlike power possessed by the Reiss family.[3]

All soldiers under Kenny's command were aware of their captain's true goal and were loyal to him rather than the government.[1][3]


The Anti-Personnel Control Squad was a relatively large unit, numbering approximately thirty soldiers at the time of its formation.[4] As a subdivision of the Interior Military Police, they did not officially report to anyone,[5] but in practice they took orders from the Assembly and Rod Reiss.[6][7]


Soldiers in the Anti-Personnel Control Squad were elite members of the Military Police Brigade who chose to join Kenny in the Interior Squad.[1][8] All were capable of using anti-personnel vertical maneuvering equipment, which was developed in secret without public's knowledge or that of the the regular Military Police Brigade.[9]

As a unit they were one of the most capable in the military, being able to catch veteran Survey Corps members unawares[2] and force Levi Ackerman to withdraw his squad from their rescue operation.[10]

Its members appeared to be cynical, feeling that their climb in the ranks has been without meaning, but by following Kenny, they might be able to discover what they are missing.[1][11]


The Anti-Personnel Control Squad was created by Kenny Ackerman two years after the Fall of Wall Maria.[11]


The Uprising arc

Kenny, Traute Carven, and other members of the Anti-Personnel Control Squad were sent to collect Eren Yeager and Historia Reiss from the Reeves Company, which had been pressured to kidnap them.[12] Suspecting that the exchange was part of a plan by Levi Ackerman, Kenny slit the throat of Dimo Reeves and Traute reported that as predicted, Eren and Historia had been hiding a number of blades.[13]

The squad killed all other company men they could find and blamed the deaths on the Survey Corps. Eren and Historia were taken away in a carriage and Kenny had the squad prepare their anti-personnel vertical maneuvering equipment in preparation for a confrontation.[14]
