Remote control system
Assault Signal (アサルトシグナル Asarutoshigunaru) is a first generation Object of the Legitimacy Kingdom, the first designed by Claire Whist and piloted by Excelsyla. It was acquired after her death by Dimiksy Nikolaschka's faction as part of his plot to assassinate Staivia Nikolaschka.
The Assault Signal is an old 1st Generation Object equipped with a low-stability plasma main cannon. The model falls in the middle to later end of the first generation. In addition to the standard weapons, it has been equipped with the result of an experimental project that uses powerful electromagnetic waves and various wavelengths of light to destroy the devices used in the enemy’s sensors. However, the idea only works in theory and is completely worthless outside of the laboratory.
A few technologies had been rejected by the higher ups of the military for misguided reasons, but Claire had added them in without recording them on the official plans. One of them is a remote control system originally meant to be used to slowly regain balance if the pilot Elite lost consciousness. The remote control can be activated at any time if it receives a specific signal.
The remote control system looks like a huge control console for a giant robot game. Normally, the remote control method requires a few dozen to over a hundred personnel to simply right the Object, so there's simply no way it can keep up with the high speed battles between Objects.
Five years ago, Excelsyla was killed in a terrorist bombing, in a café in a safe country, while on leave. The situation was engineered by Dimiksy Nikolaschka's faction in order to acquire the Object for use in their plan.
The Coming of Third GenerationEdit
The Assault Signal was later prepared for the Royal Duel between Dimiksy and Princess Staivia in Area 21 of the Amazon District, where it was boarded by the princess despite her being unable to pilot it. After Dimiksy's Object, the Broad Sky Saber, was tricked into shooting itself with its main orbiting cannon, Claire Whist used the Assault Signal's remote control function to destroy the Broad Sky Saber and kill Dimiksy.
