Arisawa Heavy Industries is an explosives and heavy armor based company with a long tradition in the economic hub of the Pacific Rim.


They specialize in a wide range of military vehicles and explosives. The toughness of their products has gained them much praise in the field. Takafumi Arisawa, the 43rd president of the company, is also known for being a superior LYNX, making him the first company president to also see combat.

Part CharacteristicsEdit

Arisawa manufactures NEXTs that are tank-variations of GA's SUNSHINE line. As such, they are slow, but over-armored. They do however, have poor energy defense and PA levels for their type.

Arisawa also manufactures the majority of grenade weaponry in the game.

Armored Core: For AnswerEdit


  • Arisawa part names are derived from Japanese onsens. Interestingly, KIRITUMI should have been written as KIRIDUMI under current Kunrei-shiki romanization.
