The RX-81AS Assault Armor RX-81 is a close range mobile suit covered from top to bottom with a hard thick armor derived from RGM-79FP GM Striker. Even though the Assault Armor RX-81 defense is increased the heavy armor decreases its speed. The Assault Armor RX-81's main weapon is a heat lance. When using the Assault Cannon it is equipped with a drum-type backpack with seven built-in vernier thrusters for the purpose of improving thrust.
