AC Sarashina[]

AC Sarashina

AC Sarashina

Whereas Hozumi's AC severely lacks weaponry, Sarashina packs enough firepower for both of them. Boasting a rocket launcher and howitzer on the arms,and a grenade launcher and extension-supported vertical missile launcher, it has many options in battle. The unit is also equipped with OP-INTENSIFY, enhancing overall performance.



In-Game Information[]

The amazing teamwork between Tsukuyo and his mentor, Hozumi, is well known and they remain undefeated in multi-AC combat. Tsukuyo joined the Arena at Hozumi's request, to keep his skills honed and up to date. So far the practice is paying off.


Tsukuyo is indeed dangerous and is not one to be taken lightly. His AC, though lacking mobility, makes up for it with its fearsome firepower. Having a back mounted grenade launcher and vertical missiles, this guy boosts an impressive arsenal for mid-to-long range combat. Up close, he has rockets and a spread howitzer that are brought to bear. On top of all this, he has a ton of durability and armor, making him seem unbeatable conventionally.

Facing him in a heavy tank or heavy bipedal AC is pretty much suicide, as his weapons can easily hit slower moving targets, so using an AC with high mobility is advised. His weapons, although hard hitting, aren't exactly fast-firing, so high mobility can definitely help in avoiding his attacks and also being able to outmaneuver him. Since he's also lacking in mobility, rapid-fire weapons like machine guns or even the Karasawa work great against him. Missiles are also a viable way of defeating him, but do note that he has some missile defense and also high endurance, so you will require another weapon to back it up.



The name Sarashina refers to the Sarashina Nikki or Sarashina Diary, a memoir written by the daughter of Sugawara-no-Takasue, a lady-in-waiting of Heian-era Japan (794-1185).
