Rafale Revive Custom II (ラファール・リヴァイヴ・カスタムII, lit.Rafāru Revaivu Kasutamu Tsū) is the 2nd - 2.5th Generation IS, piloted by Charlotte Dunois.
While the Rafale Revive Custom II lacks special equipment utilizing state-of-the-art technology found in most 3rd generation IS, it boasts a large arsenal comprised of a wide range of conventional weaponry. Notable changes from the production variant include partial removal of armor plates and 2 pairs of multi-thruster wings, which are replaced with 2 modified multi-thrusters. The new multi-thrusters provide an overall increase in speed and maneuverability.
It takes the form of pendant around Charlotte's neck.
