Recson and its variants are consistently characterized by a typical sniper's stats distribution: outstanding accuracy and below-average armour and mobility. Therefore, it has always been seen as sniper units, typically equipped with rifles or bazookas. So far, they has been seen heavily employed by U.S.N. military. U.S.N. troops are typically seen with Recson units or its variants. However, there has not yet been military other than the U.S.N. who are known to deploy Recson wanzers.
They were also seen being deployed by the Hua Lian Rebel of the D.H.Z., presumably because of the support the U.S.N. is giving to the rebel. Numerous named (but minor) members of the Rebel also piloted Recson wanzers. In Front Mission 5, many pilots in the arena were seen equipping Recson arms on their wanzers while using body and legs of other models, probably suggesting that many military units also use Recson arms for the sake of accuracy.
It also has a branch series named Recsys.
