We propose a 40 ksec Suzaku ToO observation of 3C 454.3, which is exhibiting ultra-high flaring activity in GeV gamma-ray band. 3C454.3 is a quasar hosted blazar (QHB) located at z =0.86. Daily monitoring of AGILE records E>100 MeV flux of 2x10^(-6) photons/cm^2/s or even greater. At present (Nov.23, 2007) flux is still increasing in both GeV and R-band, and this high state is expected to continue for typical flaring time scale of 1 month. Note this level of giant flare is recorded only 4-times through the entire life of EGRET onboard CGRO (3C279,1407-076,0528+134,1622-297). We propose to take a 40 ksec snapshot X-ray spectrum that is simultaneous with AGILE and world-wide ground-based radio-to-optical telescopes.
