Since this story is a prequel which takes place two years after First Contact War, the organization known as Cerberus is itself only two years old. Lacking any real funds or influence at this time, Cerberus have no possible way to realize such a prototype at the time. As such I'll sadly have to decline AVA from the unit.
As for Krogdor, I have written in his entry in the timeframe and he'll be introduced to the group in just a little while. I ask you to have patience, Cmdr, you'll get your chance shortly!
