Real Personal Trooper Type-2, known better as R-2, is a fictional giant robot from the Japanese video game series Super Robot Wars. Its upgraded form is known as the R-2 Powered. This mecha has appeared in Shin SRW, Super Robot Wars Alpha, Alpha 2, Alpha 3, as well as Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation, Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2, their remake Super Robot Wars Original Generations and Super Robot Wars Original Generation Gaiden. R-2 Altered for the Banpreios project has been mentioned, but has not yet appeared in any games.

DescriptionEdit

The R-2 is a somewhat bulky machine that is well armored. It is colored mostly dark blue, but it does have some shades of red, orange, and white. R-2 Powered has a pair of 5-Barrel Cannons mounted over the shoulders.

Technical and historicalEdit

The SRX Project spawned in an attempt to counter existing threats to the Earth required a set of robots to combine to form the mighty machine that would become Super Robot Type-X (SRX). This began the development of the R-Series mecha. One of the mecha of the series which is meant to form the chest and arms of SRX is the Real Personal Trooper Type-2, or R-2. The reason the R-2 is so bulky and heavy is for two reasons:

  • The first is that the R-2 holds the Tronium Engine for SRX, which causes R-2 to overheat very easily.
  • The second is that the R-2 is outfitted to carry large, ranged weapons, so a lot of armor is needed to support these weapons.

For extra defensive capabilities, the R-2 is outfitted with a beam shield on its left arm. Unlike its partner units, the R-2 does not use a T-LINK System as it was decided R-2's pilot should not be a psycho-driver since his purpose in the SRX would be to maintain the engine. The R-2's pilot is Raidiese F. Branstein ("Rai" for short). He would utilize this weapon very well in combat and serve his purpose well. Later on, the R-2 is given upgrades including a pair of Hi-Zol Launchers on each shoulder which are five-barrel particle cannons. The Hi-Zol Launchers also become the arms of SRX when the R-Series mecha combine. A solid shield is added to each arm and beam shield generators are on both arms, but they instead project an AB Field now. After the war with the Aerogater army from the Balmar Empire in Super Robot Wars Alpha, the R-Series mecha were dismantled one by one. But, as the Balmar begin their full-on invasion of the Balmar Empire begins in Super Robot Wars Alpha 3, the R-Series mecha are rebuilt. The SRX, however, is destroyed by Hazal Gozzo. During this time, however, the project to build SRX Altered Banpreios is in the works, and in the process an R-2 Altered is to act as the core machine of the unit. However, the combining plan is canceled so instead of three separate units, Banpreios is deployed as a single, inseparable unit (although the 3 units still exist in the design, allowing the feature to be activated in the future).
