Overview: RAIDEN was developed in the early stages of the VR development together with TEMJIN.  It's the basic type of the Heavy Battle VRs, from which BELGDOR and DORKAS were derived.  At first, it was developed as the firepower support VR, but was officially adopted as the Heavy Battle VR later because of its overwhelming firepower and stabilized heavy armor.  This performance more than offsets the demerit of low mobility.  The firepower and armor have no equal in strength.  Especially, the laser guns mounted on both shoulders can damage any types of VRs seriously.  Consequently, they cost very high and do not admit of mass production.  They are the precious and valuable VRs which cannot be deployed in bulk.

One-Point Lecture: Heavy Battle VR, giving great importance on its firepower and armor.  The Laser guns mounted on both shoulders have the strongest destructive power of all the firearms of the currently used VRs.  However, the pilots must have some skill to utilize it effectively.
