The Assault Type Aquarion is a copy of the original Aquarion, constructed in a joint operation between DEAVA and the New United Nations using Shadow Angel DNA collected by force. It follows the same basic architecture of the original with a couple of physical differences and uses massive versions of conventional weaponry, such as cannons, rockets and machine guns, as opposed to the original's more traditional weapons of bow and arrows, swords and physical-type attacks. In the OVA, DEAVA starts out with an army of these, but like any copy, it is not as good as the original. In the anime, they are created to replace the old Vectors due to them being seemingly better than the original Vectors. The only known pilot in the anime to pilot one of these is Silvia and Glen (through the use of the Shadow Angel feathers).
