The Eclipse is an Arms Fort jointly manufactured by the Interior Union and TORUS. It is a 500 meter-long[1] aircraft equipped with a vertical-launch missile system and a Hi laser cannon that rotates 360 degrees around the machine. The laser cannon also has a triple shot mode. Unlike other AFs, the Eclipse has very light armor, and therefore relies on its speed and maneuverability to avoid damage.

The Eclipse is a mass-produced AF that varies from machine to machine; one model, for instance, can also transport MTs.[1] Omer Science Technology has purchased numerous Eclipses by the time of the Economic War.


The Eclipse is a a hostile NPC encountered in the missions "Defend Megalis" and "Defend Anti-Satellite Cannons" of Armored Core: For Answer.
