Blizzaia wanzer 01

Blizzaia L

The Frost is one of the most iconic Wanzer models in the series. It appears and is playable in all main series installments except Front Mission 3 (though it appears in the opening movie) and was also featured in Front Mission Evolved. It is the flagship model line of arms manufacturer Diable Avionics of U.S.N. America.

OverviewEdit

Frost and the derivative Blizzaia series are heavy armor type wanzers, boasting thick levels of armoring and advanced leg stabilizers that allows them to withstand enemy fire and maintain balance. While not boasting a level of armoring equal to a main battle tanks', the Frost HW models (which were designed for use by the Hell's Wall unit) have 400 mm armor plates attached onto the base armoring. As a result of this, the Frost HW is one of the few MULS-P wanzers that boasts a level of durability stronger than a main battle tank. The Frost's unique defensive scheme allow it to fulfill a variety of combat roles, from close-range assault types to long-range launcher types. The Frost's primary weakness is that it lacks mobility and therefore cannot travel around battlefields as fast as most wanzers. The lack of mobility was later rectified in the Blizzaia model line, which removes excess armoring around the arm and leg joints. Although this makes it more vulnerable to damage in those particular areas, the armoring around the core remains intact.

Trivia Edit

  • Since Front Mission's original release, Frost has always been considered to be the "U.S.N. counterpart" of Zenith.
  • Diable Avionics has the tendency to name its models after weather phenomena, and many have similarities in spellings. Blizzaia was most likely based off of the term "Blizzard".
  • Despite the fact that the Frost never appears as an in-game unit in Front Mission 3, it is ironically the only combat wanzer (apart from Lukav's Xiandyu 2) to appear in FMV cutscenes.
  • Mobile Squadron 64 (AKA: Hell's Wall), an elite USN unit, consists entirely of red Frost Wanzers.
