Operational History


AS-1 Blaze Raven Unit 1 Kai: The new form of Blaze Raven Unit 1 which has the Agile Thrusters relocated to sides of the waist and extra thrusters equipped to the shoulder hardpoints, boosts its mobility and agility. Due to the new modifications made, its operation time is reduced to 65 hours.

AS-1 Blaze Raven Unit 2: A red colored variant made from spare parts.

  • AS-1 Blast Raven Unit 2 Kai/Blast Raven: The new form of Blaze Raven Unit 2 that has the Agile Thrusters removed and is converted to a fire support role, it sports a wide range of ranged weaponry like demolition gun/howitzer, chaingun and various missiles.

AS-1 Blaze Raven Unit 3/Phantom Raven: A dark grey colored variant designed for electronic warfare and serving the role as mobile command post, it is equipped with three radomes that are capable of performing the special attack "Arrow of Rostam", sending directive EM pulse to fry the electronic systems of its target.

AS-1 Blaze Raven Unit 4/Aegis Raven: A magenta colored variant designed for close range AS-to-AS combat, it utilizes multi-role combat claws for melee and protects itself with active defense system and heavier armors.

AS-1 Blaze Raven Unit 5/Mirage Raven: A white colored variant that is regarded as the final form of the AS-1 project. While it has an appearance identical to the AS-1 Unit 1 Kai (save for the paint job), its spec is so high to the point that it can outperform a M9A2 SOP in terms of mobility and agility. It has a special move named "Split Strike", executed by discontinuously using Agile Thrusters and unobservable ECS to trigger malfunction on the ECS laser hologram lens, causing other optics to see mirages of the AS using this move. Because of its high-spec systems and the "Split Strike", the Mirage Raven has the shortest operation time among all AS-1 variants, reduced to 50 hours only.

Type 11 Arms Slave: The mass production type AS-1 based on the original Blaze Raven Unit 1, it functioned much like the prototype model but does not have the TAROS unit that assists its pilot in using the Agile Thrusters.
