Laz Angriff

Laz Angriff/Laz Angriff Raven

The Laz Angriff is a fictional robot in the Super Robot Wars series. Its upgrade is known as the Laz Angriff Raven. It appears as a playable unit in Super Robot Wars Advance, Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2, Super Robot Wars Original Generations and Super Robot Wars Original Generation Gaiden.

The Laz Angriff's name is changed to Rathgrith in the North American localization. The name Rathgrith is also the name of one of the many valkyries of Norse mythology. However, the Rathgrith is actually the Type-33 of the Valkyrie series. The Type-33Kai Rathgrith Custom (Kai is the Japanese term for the kanji character, ; in English, it means "modified" or "custom") is used by the protagonist in Super Robot Wars 64. While the Laz Angriff shares the same red color scheme with the Rathgrith Custom, their equipment is completely different.

Appearance

The Laz Angriff, where Angriff is German for attack, is best described as a humanoid tank. It is painted mostly in red, with green-tinted cockpit panels and whitish gray highlights and its bulky, heavily armored appearance is designed to survive hits and return fire. The Laz Angriff's design is heavily based on the Dougram machines from Fang of the Sun Dougram.

The Laz Angriff Raven carries an additional flight pack, mounted along its shoulders, and holds a handheld rifle and shield at all times. Its appearance closely resembles the Dragonar Custom units of Metal Armor Dragonar.

Technical And Historical

The Laz Angriff is Type-34 of the Valkyrie series of mobile weapons, developed from the Fylgia hovertank. Its design is based on the RGV-30 Randgrith and assigned the RGC-034 model number. The Shadow-Mirror mass-produces this unit, after jumping from the Shadow-Mirror universe to the Original Generation dimension. Both Shadow-Mirror and Neo Divine Crusaders officers utilize this machine, including the bioroid army of the Shadow-Mirror. Some of the more notable officers to use the Laz Angriff are Axel Almer, when his Soulgain is still in repair, and Yuuki Jaggar, after the unit is rolled out from the production line.

The Laz Angriff is equipped with various missile launchers, a main cannon using solid rounds, a handheld shield (available only in Advance), a beam coat, a missile jamming system, and a mecha-sized knife for use in emergencies or close combat situations. The Laz Angriff Raven removes the main cannon, in favor of two Linear Cannons (similar to the one mounted on the Randgrith) and a beam launcher, built into the chassis.

Like most units created by the Shadow-Mirror, the Laz Angriff has a self-destruct option called Code ATA (Ash To Ash).

Specifications

Laz Angriff

Height: 20.6 Meters

Weight: 105.2 Tons

Weapon Systems:

  • Scissor Knife
    A survival knife scaled for use by a Personal Trooper, used to slash at enemies. In Advance, the animation features one slash, while in Original Generation 2, there are two slashes.
  • Linear Missile Launcher
    A handheld four-barrelled rotary missile launcher. In Advance, the Laz Angriff utilizes two Linear Missile Launchers to attack. This has been cut down to one in Original Generation 2.
  • Matrix Missile
    Mounted on the machine's shoulders, this weapon fires two missile containers, which break open to scatter smaller warheads at long-distance targets.
  • Phalanx Missile
    This particular weapon is used to lay down a barrage of missiles in an area designated by the pilot. The missiles are accurate enough to deliver maximum damage concentrated on a single target in Advance. However, Original Generation 2 changes the Phalanx Missile attack to a MAP weapon, capable of striking multiple enemy units.
  • F-Solid Cannon
    The Laz Angriff extends a shoulder-mounted cannon to its full length and fires a high-powered round of energy at its target. The range for this cannon is greater than that of a battleship's main gun. The F stands for "Folding", as the barrel is folded back when the weapon is not in use.

  • Twin Solid Cannon
    Unfolding two hidden Linear Cannons in the Laz Angriff Raven's shoulders, the unit fires a quick barrage of solid, artillery rounds upon its target.
