Technical and Historical Notes

 

The FXA-08R-X1 Proto Mega Rider is a unit developed as a support weapon for a three mobile suit team. With its living space for pilots and storage space for food, supplies and ammo, the Proto Mega Rider function as a sort of mobile base. The Mega Rider’s name is derived from it being based on the Mega Bazooka Launcher and a mobile suit’s ability to ride it like a motorcycle. One mobile suit docks on the Proto Mega Rider, with the other two carried in tow. The Proto Mega Rider is equipped with a sensor radome for scouting and is additionally armed with missile pods and Gatling guns. The Proto Mega Rider is involved in an accident at a derelict colony used as a test site. As a result, the Proto Mega Rider’s design is refined, and the unit is produced as the FXA-08R Mega Rider used by the AEUG during the First Neo Zeon War.
