Technical and Historical Notes

Introduced in 2300, the AEU-05/00 AEU Hellion Medium was an upgrade to the AEU-05/92 AEU Hellion Initium. When first deployed, the suit was simply known as the new model while the original was known as the old model. It was not until the 2305 upgrade, the AEU-05/05 AEU Hellion Perpetuum, that the names Initium and Perpetuum came into use. The suit had improved basic performance and used a linear rifle instead of a smoothbore gun as its handheld weaponry. However, initial batches of the suit still used the smoothbore gun, as the linear rifle was not completed yet. The linear launcher was developed simultaneously with the linear rifle. This weapon was primarily used by ground units in a mid-range support role.
