The Israfel is the first in a new series of Revision MOCs that I'll be working on from now on. Entries into this series will be heavy retools of extremely old GSX series MOCs (from 4-5 years back).
About this creation
The Bastion and Bastion Physical of the GVX series owe their lineage to the Hexa AF (produced roughly in late 2007). This Israfel is a retool of the Vectra AF from the same family. Members of the Hexa family are primarily black and white in color and are armed with the heaviest weapons of any AF I've designed.
The Hexa family AFs are always pretty hefty, so they're equipped with numerous articulated boosters to keep them mobile in the vacuum of space. The Israfel is no exception.
Another key feature of the Hexa line (that was conveniently omitted from the Bastion) is the Photon Shield. Emitters positioned all around the an AF's body create a field that is extremely difficult to penetrate.
Aside from the GSX Renewal Project, more of these Revision Series MOCs will start popping up on my front page from time to time.
