The Model A2 was an early version that featured a satellite link system to share target data with other friendly units during battle. The Model A2’s main armament was its dual cannon. It was deployed to the Autonomous Republic of Munzo in Side 3, often in concert with the RTX-65 Guntank Early Type for security enforcement.
