Project <Apple> was a project by Ostanian researches in order to create highly intelligent military animals. The researches conducted experiments very quickly in attempts to get a working product. However, with no signs of success and a new administration taking over Ostania, the project was shut down. The subjects of the experiments were intended to be destroyed, however, there were rumors that some of the subjects made their way onto the black market. It was also believed that some of the experiments may have succeeded in creating higher-intelligence animals, but with the project shut down there was no way to confirm.
One of those subjects, Bond (referred to as Subject 8 during the experiments), was a dog who did receive higher-intelligence through the power of precognition from the experiments. It's shown that during the experiments, the researchers cared little for the wellbeing of the subjects and were willing to replace any subjects that died quickly. The subjects were given many shots, made to eat low quality food, and administered electricity to their brains.
- The "Apple" in Project <Apple> is likely a reference to the apple from the biblical story of the Garden of Eden which when eaten gives the eater the knowledge of good and evil.
