|Factory HV bullet|
A cross section diagram of an HV bullet in Battle 33
|Japanese name||HV 弾|
|Romanized name||HV dan|
|English name||HV bullet|
|Debut||Mentioned in Battle 33|
The bullets were high velocity armour-piercing rounds, with a plastic sabot coating the shell. The sabot would break away to increase penetration efficiency. They lacked the power to punch through armoured targets at range however, a capability that was possessed by the Barjack's HSA bullets and the TUNED pistol ammunition.
When Alita fired her TUNED pistol at Colonel Bozzle, the bullet pierced his titanium-coated hand and destroyed his secondary long distance optics head. He remarked that the closest type of ammunition that could do this sort of damage was the Barjack's HSA bullets, as even the Factory HV bullets were not capable of such penetration at that range.
