We just looked at the characters of Vanguard Bandits, so let's look at the ATACs (mecha) this time.

Playable ATACs:
Alba - アルバ - ARUBA - Alba
Barazaph - バールゼフォン - BA-RUZEFON -
Baal-zephon
Haurol - ハウレス - HAURESU - Haures

Haures is another name for the Goetic demon Flauros.

Vedocorban - ベクドコルバン - BEKUDOKORUBAN - Bec de Corbin

A bec de corbin is a type of medieval polearm. The name literally means "crow's beak" in French.

Flaros - フラウロス - FURAUROSU - Flauros
Toreadore - タンサンドール - TANSANDO-RU - Tencendur

Einlager - アインヘルヤル - EINHERUYARU - Einherjar
TIC-TAC - イルカディア - IRUKADIA - Dolphadia

The Japanese name is probably a portmanteau of イルカ (iruka, dolphin) and Arcadia. I'd like to make that into some sort of pun, but nothing comes to mind.
