ORB-01 Akatsuki is a mobile suit developed by the ORB nation in secret. Commissioned by Uzumi Nara Athha, the previous leader of ORB before his death, it was developed exclusively for his adopted daughter Cagalli, should she be in need of more power. However, when her duties forced her to remain on Earth, she handed it down to a then-amnesiac Mu La Flaga under the name Neo Roanoke. The Akatsuki represents the pinnacle of ORB technology, combining the versatility of the Strike with their own cutting edge prototype technologies. The machine's shimmering golden outward appearance is due to a special coating called Yata-no-Kagami, a mirror-based armor that can reflect beam shots back at their source. This armor is so potent that it is even able to completely deflect a blast from the Minerva's positron cannon. Using a system based on the Striker packs, it can be outfitted with one of two packs depending on the environment. The Oowashi pack gives it atmospheric flight capabilities and comes equipped with twin beam cannons and the Shiranui pack can be deployed for space combat, equipped with a set of remote weapons similar to the DRAGOON system found in ZAFT's mobile suits.
