The AGE-2A Gundam AGE-2 Artimes was a reconnaissance mobile suit that could detect cloaked Vagan units by analyzing the changes in the movement of the cosmic dusts, but how well it did this depended greatly on the condition/state of the cosmic dusts. As a result, the system often didn’t perform that effectively. However, the AGE-2 Artimes performed superbly as a fleet’s recon machine and accomplished numerous exploits. Some of the recon role it played included target acquisition and evaluating the results of artillery attacks. It thus also had a secondary function as a frontline attack supervision suit. The shoulder-mounted Artimes long-range rifle allowed the suit to attack enemy units while keeping its distance from them. The long-range rifle also mounted a radome, and the shoulder-mounted beam machine guns could be mounted with the AGE-2DB Gundam AGE-2 Double Bullet‘s DODS rifles. As the suit often scouted around enemy areas alone, it was equipped with the Artimes beam saber that could function as a beam gun so that it could handle multiple combat situations and increase survivability.
