Argevollen Submission Thread

Post by Ominae » Sun Nov 22, 2020 10:33 am

Would like to raise a page for Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen or Argevollen for short.

I'll post info on the mecha, known as Trail Kriegers, and vehicles used by the Arandas and Ingelman armies. Aircraft is not widely used due to a series of large-scale environmental and geological changes, according to the official website.

Arandas military vehicles

Ingelman military vehicles

Next post will be for the TKs.

PS - There's a defunct iOS/Android tie-in game called "Assault Raven", which has more Trail Kreiger mechs, including another Argevollen-type mech known as the Assault Raven, but there's lack of inf on on the specifics since it's not released overseas. Said game is not active anymore.

Will do the TKs now... The data I found so far is from the Japanese site (The ones with URLs). I'll try to do a decent writeup based on what the show provided in terms of info.

This is for known Arandas-manned Trail Kriegers. Next one is for Ingelman-manned TKs.

Arandas (Arandasian) Trail Kriegers:

Type15-X02TK/format U "ARGEVOLLEN"

Overall Height: 8.00m
Weight: 39.20t
Standard Weapons: Assault Rifle and Knife
Technical/Historical Notes:

Officially known as the "Argevollen Stabilis Prima", it was the newest Trail Kreiger developed by the Kybernas Manufacturing Company. It's equipped with a special manuevering system to allow the pilot to fight with advanced tactics. It uses a U-Link System known as "Silver Wind". When a pilot is linked to the system, he or she cannot manually control Argevollen since the system relies on their brainwaves.

The Argevollen has special armor plating to protect the key joints from serious damage.

The newest Trail Krieger was used by 8th Independent Unit soldier Private Tokimune Susumu when a KMC truck was targeted by Ingelman TKs under Jamie Hazarford, who was the engineer in charge of its cration.

Type 94 MTK "Kongou"

Overall Height: 7.16m
Weight: 45.49t
Standard Weapons: Assault Rifle, Submachine Gun and Knife
Technical/Historical Notes:

A mass-produced Trail Kreiger in service with the Arandas Army. It's known to be reliable with high maintainability, and strong armor. It's a general purpose TK that have its parts replaced to serve different roles such as in electronic warfare by having a radar installed or a cannon and shield on the shoulder installed for long-range shooting.

Type 96 MTK-E "Kokuyou"

Overall Height: 7.16m
Weight: 45.49t
Standard Weapons: Assault Rifle, Submachine Gun and Knife
Technical/Historical Notes:

This Trail Krieger is used by Arandas Army TK pilots Sergeant Silfy Appleton and Corporal Lorenz Giuliano of the 8th Independent Unit, based on the the Type 94. Smoke grenade dischargers are installed as standard near its collar region. It's also equipped with a pile bunker for close quarters combat.

It has a wolf emblem on the left arm.

While the Kokuyou is outdated, its targeting and surveillance systems are effective for attacking hostile Trail Kreigers or lightly armored vehicles. Its slow movement means that it's not a match for fast Trail Kreigers like the Bloody Hopper.

Type ZTK5 Seiran

Overall Height: Unknown
Weight: Unknown
Standard Weapons: Assault Rifle, Shoulder Cannon and Knife
Technical/Historical Notes:

The Seiran is the newest Trail Krieger to enter service with the Arandas Army. Its carbon nano membrane armor is half the thickness and weight of older armor, making the TK agile and stronger than the Kongou or Kokuyou. It allowis more versatility and accurate firing in combat situations that require adaption and skill.

Sergeant Appleton and Corporal Giuliano later use them after the Seirans are pressed into 8th Independent Unit service.

Type 15-3 TK/SLV "Perfevollen"

Overall Height: 8.00m
Weight: 39.20t
Standard Weapons:
Technical/Historical Notes:

The mass-produced version of the Argevollen, it was manufactured by Kybernes under the code name of Akatsuki. It consists of two types, the red version as the command unit and the yellow version as drones. The Perfevolllen was constructed in part due to combat data from the Argevollen's deployment against Ingelman forces.

The red version has special equipment installed, known as the Fascinator. It allows the Perfevollen to take control of other Trail Kreigers nearby that have the U-Link System installed.

The red version is known to be used by Major Ukyo Samonji.
