Strategy: Kabaiel, while likely not being the most statistically threatening Angel the party have faced so far, does have one trick up it's sleeve - the fact it can casually sit in orbit, spamming lasers down upon Nerv with impunity. Hopefully the team has an AT Technician to allow for some Dirac Sea dickery to even the playing field, otherwise you may need to allow the OD access to E-Type equipment or some transport ex machina, so that they can actually take the fight to him. If Kabaiel is being played right, the hardest part will be getting into combat range of him, not the fight itself.

Scaling for Challenge: Incarnate [BS], Zeal, Detonation or The Specialist [Exoskeleton] or [Behemoth]. Tanking him up, or giving him a bit more kick, are both valid options for improvement.
