Found over at Armored Core-Wiki. Looks like Nineball Seraph isn’t the only awesome bird in the sky.

Armored Core LAHIRE

The LAHIRE model kit will be available in local hobby stores (hopefully) by April or May 2010. The kit features Otsdarva’s AC Stasis, the No.1 Collard ranker featured in Armored Core: for Answer along with all the weapons and trimmings. The kit includes the 0700 assault rifle, 0507 heavy laser rifle, PM missiles, and a radar pack along with some stabilizers.
