The Kobold was designed by the Progenitors as a cost-efficient mass-produced unit that’s capable of handling multiple combat situations in various terrain thanks to a quick-swap loadout system. While not as highly rated as the Dirius production model, its lower cost and high customization options makes up for what it lacks in performance.
The Dirius model was designed to be a high-performance mass produced unit that could be outfitted with different loadouts.
The first of its loadouts is the Full Armor package with reactive armor panels for major body parts. The extra armor raises the damage reduction of the Dirius by 200%, rivaling thicker armored reFrames although increasing the Dirius overall weight. Once an armor panel is damaged, the pilot can opt to discard that panel through the quick release locks on each panel.
A unique reFrame intended for space exploration and travel, the Explorer was designed to be used by Moon’s Special Forces. The huge propellant boosters on its back would allow it to exit Earth’s orbit on its own but required the Explorer to be airlifted via special carrier to optimal launch altitudes. A few of these units were field tested on Luna base and some are still operational until this day.
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.
