Oxtongue, as it appears in INNOCENT
|Other names||CW-AEC09X-2 Oxtongue|
|Magic system||Special (AEC)|
|Japanese name||オクスタン |
|First app.||Force (ch.23)|
The model designation of Oxtongue, "CW-AEC09X-2", may stand for "Caledfwlch Anti-Eclipse Experimental Weapon 09", while details for the suffix "-2" is not yet revealed and may be related to the model being an enhancement of Javelin.
Oxtongue is a reference to the Super Robot Wars series, where Oxtongue Launcher is a weapon series employed by the mecha Weiss Ritter and its derivative designs such as Weiss Saber and Wild Falken. All of these are characterized by being long-range weapons with both solid and energy firing modes, as well as usually featuring a tertiary firing mode combining both types of shots.
Notably, in the INNOCENT card game's crossover cards with Force, Duelist Hayate Yagami also wields a black and gold Oxtongue while pairing with her Fortress. In Force, however, she instead wields Strike Cannon while pairing with Fortress.
In its default form, Oxtongue looks similar to a stockless assault rifle. Comparing with Javelin, there is an extra two-sided handle between the pipe and magazine for holding upon sighting and firing.
Depending on the cartridge used, Oxtongue can fire composite energy bolts, heavy-metal solid bolts or electronic guided bolts etc. This makes it very similar to a mass weapon, whose use is banned by the Bureau; a special permission to manufacture such a weapon had to be procured by the SDS6 and Caledfwlch.
Oxtongue bears a "Safety" function whose details are not yet revealed. It may possibly be similar to the "firing lock" of normal Devices. The aria to turn off the restrictions is "Safety Off".
