Development: During Sentai Wars, the SPA cut down several bridges to prevent the robots marching into the sectors. However, this created the need to send units to the battlefields by aerial carriers. The first try resulted in a complete failure: The carriers tried to land in order to drop the units near the ground and were shoot down by robot artillery, destroying the carriers and the units inside that didn't have the time to unload. So a new unit was developed to be an aerial drop unit: Model 901 "IGNIS", the first Socket frame model to be mass produced. The Socket frame was chosen because it reduce the friction during the drops and the chest armor encase the pilot block, protecting it further than other frames. Although being a drop unit, it's not flying capable; the thrusters are basically to slow down the unit free fall.
Lt. Nicole Briggs from the 21th division of Mobile Mechanized Armors. A brilliant strategist, graduated with honor in the Academy. Born in 2098 in New Saxonia, former England. Moved to Japan at age four (just two years before the Great War) because her father was a great pioneer mech engineer. When the war ecloded, her father was considered top priority and the family moved to an anti-nuclear shelter. When the fog spread over earth surface, they were moved to the Sentai Mountain where she later joined the SPA.
HS-200 LR - LR stands for 'Long Range'.
The cannon fires 200mm slugs that can open a hole in most robots armor.
AFP-9 Automatic Bullpup Rifle - This rifle is inspired by two rifles: FAMAS and P90.
This is the same Katana used by AEGAKS 907 'Ronin'. It's so badass that I used it again.
