The TYPE-ARGINE is a specialised lightweight Normal AC developed by Omer Science as an airborne unit. The design features a large booster and a pair of wings integrated into the Core to accomplish this. Despite its flight capability, the design is aerodynamically inefficient, and relatively slow compared to an average NEXT. It is however, capable of flying indefinately without the need to land and recharge, which not all NEXTs are capable of. It is armed with a single Normal-grade laser rifle, and is generally less of a threat than other Normals unless enountered with substantial support.
In Armored Core 4, this unit was referred to as the Argine Class, and equipped with a standard laser rifle. By the time of Armored Core: For Answer, its name was displayed as TYPE-ARGINE in keeping with Omer's naming conventions, and equipped with a more powerful Hi-Laser rifle to compensate for its previous lack of firepower.
