The LINSTANT/H is a Akvavit head part that first appeared in Armored Core 4 and later Armored Core: For Answer.

Part Description[]

Special part designed specifically for PA strength.

ACFA Part Review:

This head has the best PA stats in the game. It's stats are so great, that despite it being a lightweight head, it's PA gives it far greater defense. On top of that, it has the best energy defense, making a great defensive head overall. To sweeten the deal, it's also one of the fastest heads.

It's downsides are that it has poor camera, stability, and bad drain. It's a tough to use head, but it's positives give it a unique role in FA.

Armored Core 4[]


  • According to the real world designer Akira Takimoto, this part is a remake of the HD-D-9066 from the original Armored Core but with a kendo mask motif as opposed to the original being based off a fencing mask. The internals are exposed to make the part grotesque.[1]
