From Anno Astra
Developed for the Hispanians by CASA & Thyssen-Henschel, the Aguila was designed to be a highly maneuverable light MS suited for high-speed dogfighting and long-range recon and patrol roles. To this end, Thyssen-Henschel decided to use medium MS-rated powerplants mounted onto a light MS chassis. Unfortunately, in order to keep its mass down, the Aguila has donwgraded ballistic protection, its armour (except for the torso plates) barely enough to stop glancing shots and shrapnel from close-proximity detonations. Its I-field beam barrier, though, is equivalent to that of a medium MS.
The 'Garra Rifle' is a high-powered coilgun developed specifically for the Aguila. It fires semi-automatically with variable-velocity settings. Its long-range potential, large barrel diameter and powerful recoil--in spite of the buffer system--make it a weapon for the expert. Various types of ammunition range the gamut from general-purpose explosive rounds to highly specialized anti-armour ammunition with memory-shape properties--the projectiles change their shape depending on how much acceleration or deceleration they experience.
The Aguila has multiple main optic sensors, the most noticeable being the large, multifaceted units on either side of its 'head.'
Depicted is the personal mobile suit of Teniente (Lieutenant) Isabela Cortez, 'Señorita de la Muerte.' As is, it lacks any of its standard external payload, such as spare magazines and active defense arrays.
As a member of the Hispanian 3rd S.O.G.’s elite Rapid Reaction Company, Lt. Cortez has the privilege of using her own colour & decorative scheme. The kill marks on the Garra Rifle’s barrel indicates her MS kills with this particular machine.
