The Az-130A Panzersoln was a heavy variable fighter used by the Varauta. Unbeknownst to U.N. Spacy, the Az-130A was developed from captured U.N. Spacy VA-14 variable fighters. The Varauta pilots themselves were U.N. Spacy personnel brainwashed by the Protodeviln. The Az-130 featured heavy armor and multiple armaments, including two gun pods, two 35mm cannons, a pair of beam guns, a laser gun and multiple missile launchers. The Az-130A was also equipped with a Spiritia absorption beam that could sap the life force out of enemy pilots, leaving them alive but comatose. The Az-130A was widely used against the Macross 7 long-distance emigrant fleet during the Protodeviln War of 2045-46.
