The United Kingdom introduced a 9mm-caliber submachine gun named Buschman in 1990, with its design originating from the then newborn PDW concept introduced by NATO. The Buschman SMG was roughly on the same period with the FN P90, the Steyr TMP, among other PDW-type firearms, but with the exception of the FN P90 utilizing new types of cartridges being partially successful, the other PDWs using 9x19mm Parabellum cartridges, including the Buschman SMG, were failures.
The prototype of the Buschman SMG had a rate-of-fire of a staggering 1400 RPM, while designers deemed it relatively ideal if it was lowered to 450. However, the gun had a compact design with a bolt only 227 grams in weight, with its travel distance unable to be lengthened due to the length of the receiver. Even traditional decelerating mechanisms cannot achieve such a feat. Eventually an electronic regulating device was installed in the grip which controls the sear to reduce the rate of fire. The rate of fire can be adjusted between 100 RPM to 1400 RPM, but unless specified otherwise by customers, it is defaulted to 450 RPM. This type of electronic regulating device has a service life of 30,000 rounds, and theoretically does not impact the rate-of-fire in any way even when using different cartridges. If not replaced in time when the batteries go dead, the weapon would fall into a semi-auto only mode.
Due to the constant marketing problem faced by the Buschman SMG, the design and the patent of the weapon was bought by an American named George Ealovega, which removed the regulator of the weapon, replacing the return spring with a hydraulic system similar to the suspension found on automobiles, lowering the rate of fire. When high rates of fires are needed, the user can replace the system with a traditional return spring in under a minute. The new weapon has two independent mechanical safeties, one located in the grip and the other as a safety level in front of the trigger guard. He also modified the outline of the weapon, installing a picatinny rail on the top of the receiver for mounting optics, with the new telescopic stocking foldable for use by users wearing armor or with a smaller profile.
This improved Buschman SMG was renamed IDW (Individual Defence Weapon), with a variant chambered in 10mm AUTO available for sale. Marketing was handled by Rheinlander Instrument Corp, aiming for use by bodyguards, but was still met with difficulties.
The current design of the IDW was bought by Parker-Hale, re-marketed under the same name with a few improvements in the shape of the stock, but only available in the 9mm version. Though Parker-Hale had hoped that the British Armed Forces would purchase the weapon as the standard-issue self-defense weapon for non-frontline personnel, but still, it had little prospect.

Thanksgiving ritual to IDW
IDW works poorly as an SMG, though boasting nice stats, the buffs she provides to the ARs can be considered zero, with an almost useless skill. What's more, her production timer, 1:10, coincides with that of Grizzly Mk V, a 5-star HG-type T-doll, causing commanders who constantly construct HG T-dolls to have a moment's joy after seeing the timer, only to see merely two stars.And then sending her to the enhancement room as powerup material.
During the early phases IDW did not have a voice actor, and did not attract much attention among 2-star characters, and was not mentioned frequently in the local player community. After the second batch of voicelines went live in January 2017, different from her arrogant expression found in her illustration, the large number of meow-related speech habits and high-pitched sounds brought huge differences and left deep impressions, making her the prime representative for virtually all 2-star characters when the Taiwanese and the Korean version went live, which already included the voicelines. She was starred prominently in a staggering number of spin-off artworks, and reversely raised her influence in the original Chinese player community.
|All the same with animal ears, but...|
|When producing 5-star HG T-dolls|
Appeared as the T-doll of other commanders in Episode 5-4.
Perhaps as a hint to her massive influence, in the code key activity which rewards a new outfit for Kalina in August 2017, IDW was designated as a necessary factor in acquiring a code key, making a lot of commanders begging for her pardon, hoping that everything isn't too late. xD
Morning, sir! Let me help out today, at least with housekeeping!
I-D-W-da meow!Are you the commander who's willing to accept me? I'll work hard!
Sir, do you like cats? So how about me?
Hmm? Age? The day we met is my birthday-da meow.
A bit higher! That's it that's it, it's here! Ah-great, [finally not itchy], thanks-meow!
|As adjutant (after modification)||

|Winning battle as MVP||大勝利！指揮官、よくできましただにゃー！
Great win!Sir, I get to pay you back-da meow!
A defeat-nya...Without anyone liking-nya...
Don't worry, the professional bodyguard is on-scene!
|Beginning logistic support||エサを探しに行くにゃー！

|Oath link establishment||えっ？本当かにゃ？私は…ただ居場所が欲しいだけにゃ。指揮官を独り占めなんて…でも、それは指揮官の望みなら…喜んで。
Ehh? Really-nya?I-I just want to find a place to stay-nya, never wanting to take Sir for myself...But if it's sir's choice, I'll just go with it.

- Though Parker-Hale hoped that the British armed forces adapt this weapon as the self-defense weapon for non-frontline personnel, the Parker-Hale IDW is still positioned in the market as for security purposes. Still, there is little prospect.
- Unless specified otherwise by customers, the weapon is normally set to 450 RPM.
