Norio Tomokawa (友川 規夫, Tomokawa Norio), or simply known as Norio, is the hero of the Pacific Front.

Description

After graduating from Waseda University, Norio Tomokawa initially found employment as a police officer assigned to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's Anti-Riot Squad division before joining the Japanese Rocketeer division. Due to outstanding acts of courage in the field, Norio quickly rose through the ranks, eventually being selected as the prime candidate for the Pacific Front's latest developments in armored flight suits.

Norio uses the 'Garuda' power armor of which only a few were made. Capable of flying at incredible speeds, Norio is well-equipped to deal with air and ground threats, freezing enemy infantry with a built-in cryo rifle and destroying enemy armor and aircraft with a burst of guided missiles. The suit also allows Norio to resist an amazing amount of anti-aircraft fire, though concentrated fire will eventually overwhelm him.

Overview

Norio is basically a much more powerful Rocketeer. Norio is the fastest unit in the game. His speed is his major advantage as he can perform hit and run with his 'Garuda' power armor. His main weapon is a cryo beam which can freeze and slow any infantry making him a decent anti-infantry unit. His second weapon is a MLRS which allows him to deal high damage not only to buildings and vehicles but aerial units as well.

Thanks to this flexibility and speed, Norio can be a force to be reckoned with. Despite that, Norio is not invincible. While he can absorb a decent amount of damage, he can't last too long against heavy anti air unit and defense. While he is decent against buildings, he can't out-range AA defences.
