[n] Main Pilot:
A. 2x Movable HMM-5A Rammington Micro-Missile CIWS Launcher Pods (chest and shoulder) The Armoured Pack is equipped with four CIWS system micro-missile launcher pods, mounted on the chest and shoulders in Battroid (a maximum of 20 micro-missiles in each chest launcher, and 38 micro-missiles in each shoulder launcher)
B. Rammington Close-Range Micro-missile Launcher Pod - double loaded Type (for the legs)
Two Close-Range Attack Micro-Missile Launchers are arranged on the parts on each leg. Each double loaded launcher has up to 16 missiles for a single volley.
C. Compound Sensor Antenna (ASSA-021A)
The Armoured Pack has an additional armoured compound antenna in order to compensate for the sensor functions of the VF-25 itself, which become unusable because of the armour (each part of the armour is also furnished with infrared sensors and monitor cameras).
D. 2x 15-Tube Howard 200 mm Anti-Armour High-Initial Velocity Rocket Launcher Pod (back units)
The two Rocket Pods that are equipped onto the main wings parts face forward in Fighter form. For that reason, they are mainly used when in Fighter for such things as forced penetrations of the enemy.
E. 2x 57 mm Otto / Sentinel Anti-Ship Anti-Air Rapid-Fire Swivelling Beam Gun Turret (tips of the back units)
The sides of the main wing parts are equipped with two Rapid-Firing Swivelling Beam Gun Turrets. They are operated, just like the Energy Conversion Armour, by the capacitor inside the Armoured Pack, which is charged by the output from the reactors in the main body of the VF-25.
