AC ProgenitorEdit

AC Progenitor

AC Progenitor

Progenitor is a heavyweight reverse-joint AC equipped with an exceed orbit core, ECM rockets, hover extensions, a back mounted missile launcher, back mounted orbit cannon, a parrying blade, and spread howitzer.

The Progenitor makes for an annoying battle, not to be confused with difficult, just annoying. It is equipped with everything unorthodox the game has to offer whether it be orbit cannons that pursue you like a small swarm of bees or rockets that will disable your lock on capability, Pass Ahead's AC is designed to hinder opponents. However the AC is poorly put together and the piloting is worse.



In-Game InformationEdit

He loves new toys, as any who have seen his AC can tell. To him, performance and compatibility are secondary issues and this stance has been his downfall more than once. Other Ravens watch him closely to find out which new parts hold promise.


While Pass Ahead can make an interesting and unpredictable opponent, one is not hard pressed to find an acceptable strategy for bringing him down. His ECM rockets will disable your FCS in most cases, however they are easily dodged and Progenitor is over weight.



The name Progenitor refers to a person or thing from which others are descended or originate. For example, it is used to refer to the ancestor who started the line of a noble family.
