Performance and ArmamentEdit
Designed by BFF, and based around their emphasis on long-range combat, the 044AC is a Normal created specifically as a long-range sniper. The standard model is armed with a sniper rifle, although some models also carry a back-mounted sniper cannon which is quite powerful despite its Normal-grade classification, and is capable of crippling an unwary NEXT from outside the range of retaliation. The only major weakness of the 044AC is its ineffectiveness at close range and its tendency to remain stationary, making it an easy target for more agile NEXTs.
A naval variant, the 047AC-F, appears in the mission Water Gliding on Hard Mode, Hail of Bullets and Sea of Blood. This unit is identical to the standard model in most respects, save for its catameran-like hull in place of the bipedal legs. It is armed with the same sniper rifle as the standard version.
