An optimized version of the Type-1R Burai, the Burai Kai was created for the Japanese Liberation Front’s elite unit, the Four Holy Swords. The most distinctive change to the base Burai unit was the addition of a pair of long, trailing antennae mounted on the back of the head. Its performance was also upgraded, putting it about on par with the Britannia Empire’s elite RPI-209 Gloucester unit. Though capable of wielding the same weapons as the standard Burai, the Burai Kai’s primary weapon was the brake blade, a chainsaw-bladed katana. Although proven to be an exceptional machine, all five Burai Kai units were abandoned following the Japanese Liberation Front’s retreat during the Battle of Narita, and the Four Holy Swords eventually upgraded to the superior Type-3F Gekka.
