Enemy Blaster

Enemy Blaster.

Enemy Blaster (エネミーブラスター Enemīburasutā?) is a Powered Suit developed by Academy City and modified for use in World War III.[1]

AppearanceEdit

The Enemy Blaster has 8 legs and no head, with lenses and sensors built onto the body, including a radar receiver on the bottom part of the suit. The waist portion is over 5 meters tall, capable of rotating 360 degrees. Its left arm is twice the size of a human arm and holds a machine gun. Its right arm is 4 times larger, holding a smoothbore gun, a weapon used by tanks.[1]

PrinciplesEdit

The Enemy Blaster is armed with a heavy machine gun on its left arm and a smoothbore gun on its right arm. The heavy machine gun has a caliber of at least 18mm, a bigger bullet than those used for anti-armor rifles. It can fire fifty times in ten seconds, or around 300 bullets per minute.[1]

The smoothbore gun uses various types of shells. Normally it uses APFSDS, a type of shell that uses a large amount of pressure to pierce armor instead of explosive powder. It also has a multilayer structure; after it pierces the armor, it sends shards and a shockwave inside. It's a shell that's not intended to be directly used on people, instead meant to be fired at a tank or other armored vehicle and kill the people inside; though the shockwaves it causes are strong enough to knock out people. It also has an adhesive non-lethal air stun gun that transmits a shockwave through a wall in a radial pattern to attack infantry behind cover[1] and canister shots.[2]

According to Hattori Hanzou, Academy City's smoothbore guns can hit a target 5000 meters away with greater than 95% probability even while firing rapidly and moving, making its repeated failures to score a direct hit with its gun on the fleeing Hanzou and Fremea Seivelun strange. However, Hanzou realized the suit used wide area electromagnetic signal targeting for precise aiming. While this method is fine for open battlefields, it can't compensate for an environment full of complex electromagnetic signals being reflected everywhere like a city or an underground mall. This is likely a result of the Enemy Blaster being modified for wastelands and wide plains of Russia for World War III, leaving it weaker in urban warfare,[1] though it's to be noted that its pilot's goal was not killing the duo.[2]

Besides its electromagnetic radar, the Enemy Blaster can also use infrared equipment and optical aiming. It can use its numerous sensors to scan the battlefield 360 degrees around itself for threats such as people, small landmines and small wireless robots carrying anti-tank rockets. However, the recoil and shockwave produced by its smoothbore gun temporarily blinds its sensors after it is fired.[1]

ChronologyEdit
