The Archangel (アークエンジェル Ākuenjeru), also known by the codename Wing Balancer (ウィングバランサー U~ingubaransā), was a Second Generation Faith Organization Object.

Powers and Stats

Tier: 7-B with main cannon, 8-B with secondary weapons

Name: Archangel, Wing Balancer

Origin: Heavy Object

Age: Unknown

Classification: Regional Defense Weapon, 2nd Generation Amphibious Object

Wielders: Unknown

Powers and Abilities: Flight (Hovers above the ground through an air cushion engine), large-scale small caliber coilgun as the main weapon; several dozens of rapid fire beam cannons, laser beams, etc as secondary weapons; ability to make high jumps, Advanced Sensors, resistance to heat, radiation, hacking and EMPs

Attack Potency: City level with main cannon, at least City Block level with secondary cannons (While its main cannon is weaker than a standard main cannon, it can still damage an Object's armor, comparable to other Objects)

Speed: Subsonic top speed (470 km/h), likely Hypersonic+ reactions (Comparable to other Objects)

Durability: City level (Comparable to other Objects)

Stamina: Unknown, once fuel is put in the JPlevelMHD reactor it doesn't have to be swapped for 5 years, so the practical limit is on things like ammunition and the like

Range: Over 20km with secondary weapons, higher with main weapon

Weaknesses: Has a weaker than average main cannon, its jumping air cushion engine can be interfered with an IR Jammer to cause it to trip while landing from a jump, after 10 km its main cannon can no longer achieve city level attack potency

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Large-scale Small Caliber Coilgun: The Archangel's main cannon is a coilgun with a small caliber that seems mismatched to its large size, most likely the ‘small, sharp, and fast’ type. It has a long range and high accuracy, so it can steadily apply damage, but it's unable to pierce an Object's armor in one shot.
  • Air cushion engine: The Archangel uses an air cushion engine for propulsion, giving it amphibious capabilities without the need of previously attaching naval floats. Additionally, while the air cushion device initially looks like two concentric circles, the circles are actually split into about 20 smaller fan-shaped portions similar to pieces of canned pineapple. This splits it apart into many different “legs” and each of the countless joints makes slight corrections to match the small ups and downs of the ground using infrared laser sensors. This configuration allows the Archangel to use its air cushion engine to jump at least about 150 meters into the air and easily clear cliffs and other obstacles. It can also use jumps to dodge enemy attacks or to jump over an enemy Object to attack it from behind.
  • Weight Wings: The four "wings" on the Archangel's back are used to help it keep its balance with its center of gravity and the inertia when it makes rapid turns and jumps.
