Technical and Historical Notes

The AEU-09/LG Klaus’ AEU Enact Landstriker Package was a customized AEU-09 AEU Enact used by Klaus Grad of Katharon’s Middle Eastern third branch. It was formed through the combination of an Enact with a desert-use “Sand Chariot” buddy craft (a collective name for support-use mobile suit carrier units that were in use since the Solar Power Wars and combined with the suit’s lower half, giving it mobile armor-like capabilities). The Sand Chariot used by the Enact was produced specifically for it and had higher output than the one used by the AEU-05/05 AEU Hellion Perpetuum. Due to the Sand Chariot’s powerful hovering capabilities, it could also be used on a water surface after some adjustments to its settings. A cockpit was installed in the cowl section so that the Enact’s Sand Chariot could be used as a mobile armor. The center portion of the Sand Chariot contained the electromagnetic propulsion unit as well as a large battery. The round, pillar-like parts on the left and right were the unit’s motors, and their tips could be used as hardpoints.

The wings on the Enact’s back were shortened and could be used as hardpoints, while the sub-wings on the rear waist were removed. A smoke discharger was mounted on left shoulder. The Enact’s linear machine gun was useless against GN Drive-equipped mobile suits. However, as most of the enemy units at that time were still non-GN Drive equipped units, the linear machine gun was still an effective weapon. Added after Klaus joined Katharon, the laser cannon was meant for dealing with GN Drive-equipped suits and was quite effective. The laser cannon replaced the standard AEU Landstriker Package’s linear cannon, which was also used by AEU-MA0707 Agrissa Type 7. The laser cannon was a half-barrel version of the ones used by ships, and was powered by the Sand Chariot’s battery unit. In the end, due to the changes in situation caused by A-LAWS’ appearance, and his promotion to the leader of the branch, Klaus used the suit less frequently.
