General Notes

Whereas the AZC-105A excelled at close air support in an atmosphere, the AZC-105S  was designed to fill a similar role in outer space. Like the XCD-102 Emancipator, the Dragonfly could transform into a fighter mode capable of unassisted atmospheric entry. Armed with a Grand Dolph machine rifle and an expanding lattice of 680 missiles--including nuclear warheads--a single AZC-105S packed enough firepower to take down a warship.

I hope you enjoyed our final CY 40 Second Coming Build-a-Mech! To see more awesome reader-designed mechs in action, read Combat Frame XSeed: Coalition Year 40!

  2. I'm convinced all that's missing is a video game adaption of this series.
