Production Model Armored Core NEXT seen in Armored Core: For Answer.
Following Arisawa Heavy Industries tradition, RAIDEN is a simple, yet durable tank leg design. It was built with the high defense in mind, and to that end it has remarkably high AP as well as ballistic defense. For weaponry, the basic RAIDEN has a pair of grenade launcher weapon arms. Despite this impressive combination, it is very slow, even for a NEXT, making it an easy target for agile opponents.
