AC DynamoEdit

AC Dynamo

AC Dynamo

Dynamo is a poor man's Multi Box. It is a heavyweight reverse-joint AC equipped with an overboost core, missile extensions, floating mines, a back mounted general magazine, and missile launcher weapon arms. The unit is built to endure long mid range battles.



Along with Back Breaker, he is encountered as a bonus enemy in Disable Radar Equipment should the player destroy the main and largest facility last.


His combat style is rather simple and integrates basic, reliable strategies with a single weapon type. He prefers to equip his AC with weapon arms and is quite adept at forcing opponents to follow the pace he sets. His tactics are predictable, but sound.


Dynamo is somewhat sturdy, so heavy weapons should be used against him. The weapons should be equipped on either a heavy AC to stand its missiles, or a maneuverable one to avoid them. His tactics involve standing still and firing volleys of missiles. They also involve rushing you and releasing mines.



The name Flare-Up can refer to either the recurrence of symptoms or an onset of more severe symptoms of a disease.

The name Dynamo refers to an electrical generator that produces direct current with the use of a commutator. Dynamos were the first electrical generators capable of delivering power for industry.


  • In the Japanese version, when Flare Up is destroyed, he oddly screams with a female voice. This was rectified in the English version.
