The reason for South Africa to develop the NTW-20 may have ties to the weapons imporation ban caused by Apartheid. South Africa had to seek out other options due to the unavailability of heavy anti-armor weapons. Development of the NTW-20 was announced in 1993 and officially commenced in 1995, first under Aerotek, and then the design was purchased by Denel, and is now materialized by Pretoria Metal Processing, part of Denel. The chief designer of the weapon is Tony Neophytou, a specialist in designing helicopter turrets and recoil buffers, who also participated in the development of the Neostead combat shotgun. Using ready-made parts from the Vector GA1 autocannon, the first working prototype is completed in only four months.

Outgoing and calm, superior performance, but a bit aggressive and arrogant, doesn't listen to others much, but rather talking to herself often. Likes hunting and going for rides, a well-known lonewolf.

— From the official art collection THE ART OF GIRLS'FRONTLINE UNTIL THE STARS


The inspiration for this character is mentioned in the official art collection:

ntw-20 as a large-caliber anti-material, I started with a powerful, confident and tsundere doll. But then thought that silence and steadiness suits a sniper better. Not a fan of words, but undoubtedly powerful, not activating her ability when she should (no). The clothing didn't take inspiration from anything, started off from seifuku, the black-pink coloring and not choosing a military uniform are hopes to sense some activity, but if there's a modification might just want to draw a military uniform. Previously saw comments about that why not make her a black as a South African gun, and later on regretted having not done so, sensing the charm of being black. I hesitated a bit on the size of the gun, the original version's too big feeling that it's going to pierce the screen.. so just downscaled it a bit, making the doll standing at 2 meters, but actually somewhere near 1.65?!!? CV's a bit more hardline than I originally thought, but still a fit, actually I originally out of personal preference wanted Touyama [Nao], and it's great that I wasn't heard. (ntw-20作为一把大口径的反器材,开始的思路是強大、自信、傲嬌的人形。不過後來感覺沉默、穩重更適合狙擊手。不善言辭,但是毋庸置疑的強大,該出技能的時候就不出(沒有)。服装倒没有考据,原形是水手服,黑粉的配色和沒有選擇軍服的也是希望多感受到一點活力,如果有改二的話可能就想畫軍裝了。之前看到吐槽南非枪为什么不画成黑人,其实后来有点后悔没有画成黑人,后知后觉感受到了黑皮的魅力,枪的大小我是犹豫了一下的,原版的太大感觉要戳破屏幕了。。于是就缩小了一些,人形的身高就變成兩米了,其實可能1米65左右?!!?cv比我想象中硬了一些,不過還是挺合適的,其實我開始憑喜好指名了東山,沒有聽我的真是太好了。)

Finally thanks to everyone loving ntw, you'll have to go through me if you want to marry her (what (最後感謝喜歡ntw的大家,要結婚先過了我這關(什麼))


Her illustrator, as shown, gave a detailed description of how NTW is born, including her personality, clothing, and her height perhaps behind only that of PTRD, and threatful thanks to all players who likes NTW-20.

Cafeteria stories-NTW-20 "Christmas Reindeer"

The celebration event of the Christmas Eve was about to begin, and some dolls were already coming to the small plaza where a Christmas tree is placed.
According to plans, the first part of this event would include Springfield dressinig as Santa Claus giving presents to the dolls. Though according to traditional records, the present should be quietly placed by the pillow at midnight, enjoying the moment of happiness earlier is nevertheless more important to the dolls.
Of course, measures needed to be taken in case they get too excited. Just as I was thinking about how exactly am I to protect Santa, a sheet-metal bucket suddenly dropped right in front of my eyes.
"Who's down there? Eh, commander?! Did I hit you?"
"No no I'm fine......But you are.......?"
"It's me, NTW-20. What, you can't recognize me with just a bit of a camouflage, command?"
"I focused a bit and only then did I find that it was NTW who peeked out. The two tree branch-like stuff is nothing other than a bunch of deer antler ornaments she was wearing on her head."
"Oh it's NTW......What you doing up there?"
"Preparations for the show. Commander, you wanna come up and have a look? The ladder's at the back of this warehouse."
"Kay, I'm on my way up."
I made my way up the rooftop of the warehouse, and saw NTW adjusting the positions of some stuff on the roof.
"Sorry about that, command. I thought no one would be down there then and didn't care too much......"
"Haha it's ok. I should've been in the office waiting for the thing to start, but just met some problems and had to come out here......NTW, what are you working on up here?"
"I'll be sniping here when the event starts, but never thought that there's so much junk up here. I have to clear out a place to stay."
" you are the 'partner' Springfield's talking about?"
NTW pointed at the antlers on her head.
"Springfield says that per human festival traditions, Santa Claus needs a reindeer or something, so I dressed this way. Awkward?"
"Haha not to me. This outfit really has some atmosphere for a festival. A perfect fit for you to me."
"......It just feels strange dressing as a prey as a hunter. But if you commander says so......It'll be fine. After all, there should be an interesting hunt today."
"Though you NTW loves hunting......Don't be too harsh today. The primary goal for tonight is to ensure that Santa gets to hand the presents to everyone. If the recepient doesn't get to receive his present, Santa will be sad as well."
"You got it, commander. I know what the real prey is to day. Those conspiracies to disrupt the event and the greed of attempting to take all the presents, will be pierced by my bullet!"
"I'll rest assured this way. Oh by the way, what do you want for Christmas present?"
"Hmm? Does a Christmas reindeer receive a present?"
"Of course. Everyone in the base should get a Chrisemas present in this event."
NTW slightly gave this a little thought.
"I'm not having a present I'd like pretty much."
"Then......any wish or something?"
"If it's a wish......I'd like to see some snow."
"Hmm. There ain't no snow in my homeland. Saw borderless deserts and hid within jungles, but I never saw any snow. Says that things turn really beautiful when it snows, want to see it......"
"Yeah, it'll be even better if it snows on Christmas. But it's just a wish. After doesn't change simply for the mood of a hunter."
"But it just might. Christmas is a day where all wishes are satisfied."
"All right all right, commander. I ain't a kid......But I'm already happy to have you talking about these with me."
"It's about time, and I'll leave this to you. But......I still advise you to look forward to the Christmas present this year."
I had read recent weather forecasts when I was planning for the event. Though it's all clear skies for today, but, to give it a bit more of an atmosphere, I still prepared some extra stuff, to fulfill their wishes.
NTW didn't hurry into the house after the small plaza returned to silence. She sat on the rooftop, staring into the starry sky.
"Snow ain't falling with a clear sky like this......"
NTW jumped down from the roof, heading towards the banquet room.
Deep humming sounds escaped from the corner of the small plaza, NTW stopped by the Christmas tree.
"......What is it, did they forget some machines out there?"
"NTW stood next to the Christmas tree seeking for the source of the noise, as a white snowflage gently fell to her shoulder."
"It's cold!......Is this......snow?"
She opened her hands catching the snowflakes falling from the sky, watching them melt in her palms in deep surprise.
"Christmas is a day where all wishes are satisfied, isn't it?"
The snowmaker was running in perfect condition. Though it took some effort to fix these machines, but I thought everything was worth it as I saw NTW's face.
NTW turned to face me, a satisfied smile on her face.
"Commander......Now I believe, that Santa exists on this world."

I NTW will kill ya today!!!


NTW-20 as the dominant high-damage RF has the highest damage value (165) and the highest ability multiplier (8x) amounting to a staggering 1320 points of damage in one hit, forming a team of high-damage one-shot RFs with M99, PTRD and also 98k. But however, aside from some high-intesity maps, they are usually replaced with other dolls due to the relatively low need for them in ordinary maps and their slow rate of fire.

But as the buffs of HGs received an overhaul as well as the calculation of ability damage, and the bosses of Operation Cube PLUS are introduced,

NTW and M99 received wide acclaim for one-shotting Executioner, Architect and Weaver, signifying the rise of high-damage one-shot RFs.

They have also contributed to the ever-increasing number of auras above Weaver's head.
