|Name||XV-7102 Bradyon NEXT|
|Developed from||XV-7002 Bradyon|
|Affiliation||Free Pact Alliance|
|Pilot(s)||Dio Junyou Weinberg|
The XV-7102 Bradyon NEXT (also known as Bradyon NX, or simply Bradyon) is a Coupling Valiancer, and the successor to the XV-7002 Bradyon. Its twin Valiancer is the XV-7101 Luxon NEXT. The Bradyon NEXT is piloted by Dio Junyou Weinberg.
The Bradyon NEXT is a red and white Valiancer belonging to the Free Pact Alliance. Bradyon is very similar to its predecessor, but is more sleek in design. The Coupling System onboard are stronger than that of its predecessor. Additionally, there are two shields at the left and right shoulders. The right unites with the right arm of the Valiancer to use as a shield during Coupling whereas the left one goes at the back and deploys wings. During Coupling, thin wings deploy from the shoulders, legs, head, and back, and radiates a red glow. The two facial compartments open as well.
Its weaponry is virtually identical to Luxon NEXT's, but the weapons are held in the opposite hands.
Armaments & SystemsEdit
Sword: The Bradyon NEXT's left arm is equipped with a sword like many other Valiancers. It is used for close quarter combat, and is a longsword. It has only one edge. It is stored in the right arm compartment.
Nector Rifle: The Bradyon NEXT's right arm is equipped with a Nector Rifle which is a variation of the Nector cannons airships have. It is used for ranged combat. It is black and gray in appearance.
Gun: Along with the Nector Rifle, the Bradyon NEXT also has a standard firearm to fight with. It doesn't seem to have any special properties other than the standard.
Coupling System: During Coupling wings are deployed that enable it to fly greater distances and at greater speeds. The pilots also share skills, abilities and experiences while increasing the abilities and the output of the Valiancers. The pilot's reaction time also increases. The Coupling Systems onboard are improved compared to those onboard the Bradyon.
Space Equipment: During Bradyon NEXT's deployment in space, the Valiancer was equipped with space equipment to be able to operate better in space. However, due to equipping this equipment, Bradyon NEXT's Coupling System can no longer bypass the normal five minutes.
- Dio used the Firebrand to retrieve the Bradyon NEXT.
- Bradyon NEXT's sword only has a single edge, while Luxon NEXT's sword has a double-edged blade.
