One reason why the New Earth Strategic Trust faction is such a dominant force in the Quorus Wars is due to their supreme tactics and efficient strategies and have outfitted specific units like the Eagle EWAC to prioritize recon and intelligence gathering. The Eagle EWAC is actually based on the NESF-M05E Eagle, a standard combat type reFrame that is deployed in heavy combat areas and serve as a main unit in NEST Special Forces ranks. The EWAC (Early Warning And Control) unit allows for efficient intelligence gathering that is sent to NEST’s tactical HQ as data to create up-to-date battle strategies. Extra thrusters were equipped on the Eagle EWAC to give it better mobility in order to move faster to key locations for data scanning as well as avoid enemy units. It is equipped with a light submachine gun (SMG-UZ01A) and a hand cannon mounted on its left arm for emergency combat purposes.
Awarded to only the most battle-hardened knights and reFrame pilots, the silver-plated Paragon reFrame is a heavily improved version of the AL-MXRITTER. Overall battle performance has been improved with a special emphasis was given to thrust capacity, allowing the Paragon to swiftly close in and engage opponents in melee combat where these units truly excel. As with its predecessor, it is equipped with the PA-LNCPRGN. an improved and deadlier polearm that first skewers opponents then shreds them to bits with the side blades, and the SH-DIAMDNX, a diamond-shaped shield that is well balanced and offers superior deflection both in CCQ.
An assault variant of the reFX01, Type D is equipped with reinforced mobile shields on its shoulders, reducing the need to carry a shield as compared to the A and B types. This model also comes with a modified backpack, designed specifically for short burts of thrust to quickly change direction, making it a highly mobile unit on the battlefield.
