The RX-81AS G-Line Assault Armor was an alternate configuration of the base model RX-81 G-Line. The RX-81AS was equipped with armor pieces across its main body that were based on the RGM-79FP GM Striker. Its base armaments included the standard vulcan guns and beam sabers, but it could also carry a heat lance, beam rifle, assault shotgun, assault shield and heat lance. Its beam sabers could be replaced with an assault cannon, missile launchers and an additional thruster unit. The RX-81AS was used in UC 0081 by the Phantom Sweep unit to hunt down the Invisible Knights, a Zeon remnant group. Elements of the RX-81AS were used in a later configuration, the RX-81FC G-Line Full Custom.
