After the Lion, the first mass produced Armored Module, was sent into combat against Earth Federation and Aerogater forces, the data from the conflicts was analyzed and applied to the next generation of Armored Module. Unlike the Lion, which was heavily based on airplane concepts, this new machine, the Guarlion, would be much more like the EF's Personal Troopers, while retaining the Lion's aerial mobility.
The Guarlion introduced a new way of utilizing the Tesla Drive Field, previous implementations only used the field for flight, but while creating the Guarlion, Philio Presty discovered that it could be used to generate a shockwave in front of the unit when it moves at high speed, which could be used in ramming style attacks. Dubbed the "Sonic Breaker", this ability became the trademark of the Guarlion, and the machines that would later be derived from it.
In addition to the Sonic Breaker, the Guarlion is armed with a set of Vulcan Cannons in the chest, and is capable of weilding handheld weapons, like PTs do. Its traditional armament is an Assault Blade, a large, physical sword with chainsaw teeth, and a Burst Railgun, a high powered rifle that fires exploding shells.
A number of minor variations of the Guarlion were produced, mostly consisting of minor performance tweeks and different paintjobs. It was frequently used as a commander unit, leading a squad of Lion AMs. As it became more prevalent, squad leaders would frequently be issued the Guarlion Custom, visually identical (though often with a custom paintjob) to the normal Guarlion, but with enhanced performance.
After the end of the DC war, the DC Remnant continued to use the Guarlion, though in more limited numbers than before. Its less common to see the Earth Forces using them, but they do have some in inventory, mostly Guarlion Custom models.
