Info on Panasonic ATB-2

Would anybody care to share info on the Panasonic ATB-2 mountain bike? I have been researching but haven't been able to find much. On the catalogs at https://panasonicbikemuseum.info/ I see the regular ATB but not the ATB-2. I picked this bike on the Japanese market. I don't know if the ATB-2 was their model number for a bike that is known as a different model on the U.S. market.

Long story short I'm converting one for touring. My daughter is 5'1" and the small size full frame (no slanted top tube ugliness) with its loooong wheelbase is working beautifully. I replaced the huge front fork with a more stylish lugged one, 26"x1.0" tires, drop bars, bar end shifters, honjo fenders, and a nice drive train. Next year it is getting a paint job

If you got it in Japan you have to compare specs to find a similar US model.

I know that the ATB made it to the U.S. market. What replaced that model?

Sounds cool, but it will probably be impossible to help without large, detailed photos of the bike/frame/components.
