The initial goal was to raise an automated Reploid army under the command of the twelve councilors to protect each dvivisions and replace the Maverick Hunters in the future. Since the Moon colonies became dependant on funds due to the ban on Copy Chips, the Government would not be able to produce the troops in the speed Raffould desired, but the amount of troops would be in a satisfactory number in one month. The Earth Army is said to be open to volunteers, but the Government does not want civilians fighting. Either way, the two best soldiers of the Earth Army would be assigned to pilot the Super Ride Armors Blue Moon and Red Sun. Captain Elika realized that a war between the Earth Army and the Neo Maverick Army in their maximum potential would cause massive damage to the planet, so the remaining Maverick Hunters needed to destroy the NMA before that could happen.
AbilitiesEditThe Earth Army Reploids have no personality of their own and can only obey sentient authorized officers related to the Government. With instructions given, the mindless Reploids can perform long missions with high efficiency. Despite that, their AIs are linked and they can share information through a special kind of signal, as seen during the Battle of Stockholm in Winged Rampage.
The EA Reploids are said to have virus immunity thanks to a technology based on the A-Trans that updates their DNA Program periodically, removing any unwanted changes, although that has not been seen yet.
There are several types of EA Reploids and Ea Mechaniloids, each belonging to a distinct Class. The common troops belong to the 3rd Class, the expensive and advanced troops are considered 2nd Class and the strongest make the 1st Class.
|3rd Class Shooter||The most basic infantry. They shoot plasma beams with a medium fire rate.|
|2nd Class Shooter||A advanced infantry with more resistance and better cannon that is able to charge shots.
They usually command other 3rd Classes.
|3rd Class Aerial Scout||They have specs lower than the 3rd Class Shooters, but they can move quickly through the air.|
|2nd Class Aerial Scout||This type is equipped with two beam sabers that can pierce through airships.
Instead of commanding their 3rd Classes, the 2nd and 3rd usually complement their strenghts.
|1st Class Aerial Scout|
|A powerful Mechaniloid that has three large cannons.|
|2nd Class Riot Rider||A troop that can fly even with its big shield, that can resist many projectiles and shoot bombs.|
|3rd Class Fighter||A resistant fighter type. Their body parts emanate an energy aura when attacking.|
|2nd Class Fighter||A bigger version of the 2nd Class.|
|3rd Class Chaser||A soldier without weapons that rides the Rigel Ride Chaser.|
Vehicles, weaponry and machineryEdit
Different types of apparatus have been produced to aid the Earth Army troops.
- The Jubartis-class is a combat airship that can carry several troops at once. It has two huge plasma cannons that can obliterate entire fleets when fully charged. The first time they were shot was in the Battle of Stockholm against Chaotic Gargale's fleet, destroying 80% of the enemy troops. However, the beam hit the city, probably causing more civil deaths than casualties to the NMA.
- The Carrier Platform Lv. 2 is a floating vehicle that comes out of the larger vehicles carrying a dozen troops on it. Its design allows the shooter classes to keep fighting while it makes its descent.
Blue Moon and Red SunEdit
The Blue Moon and Red Sun are the first of a new set of extremely expensive Ride Armors based on the Raiden models, having a large arsenal and high resistance called Super Ride Armors.
