AFC01I Legioss (Iota)


Originally, the armo-fighter was a defensive weapon used in conflicts between the colonies. However, during the campaign to retake Earth, a joint effort between the colonies was undertaken to repurpose and refine it as an anti-Inbit weapon. The result was the Legioss, one of the new weapons developed for the Second Invasion Fleet. The Legioss can fight in any environment: in outer space, in an atmosphere and on the ground. The Legioss is the successor to the Condor armo-soldier that was used by the First Invasion Fleet. It can be connected to the Tread to extend its range and firepower.

The mass produced model, the AFC-01I Iota, is typical of the Legioss’ form, specifications and performance. Two variants of the Legioss, also designated by letters from the Greek alphabet, are seen in Genesis Climber Mospeada. The Eta is designed for squad leaders while the Zeta is a high performance variant. Each Legioss contains one Armor-Bike in the chest that the pilot can use in emergency situations. The Iota is manufactured at Mars Base.
