Seen only in the Neon Genesis Evangelion
, the Eva Production Unit is employeed solely by the U.N.
in an attempt to retake Tokyo-3
and stop Nerv
Piloted completely by the Dummy Plug
system, the Eva Production Unit features a set of collapsible wings enabling flight, a modified copy of the Spear of Longinus
and is completely loyal to whomever commands it. The Production Units are internally powered, negating the use of the power cables found on other Eva units and have an astounding rate at which they can heal themselves.
The units are delivered into a combat zone via modified versions of the same aircraft that carries Eva Unit 1
At the time of the movie, there appear to be 9 of these units active.
