Technical and Historical Notes

 

One of Anaheim Electronics' earliest attempts to cash in on smaller-scale mobile suit development, the F-50D (RXR-44) Guntank R-44 is based on an earlier transforming artillery mobile suit, the D-50C Loto. Due to its small size, the R-44's 200mm main cannons have to be loaded manually, and its main body contains enough space for four personnel to fully operate the mobile suit. The design seems to have proved a failure, however, and the R-44 never makes it past the prototype stage. It is unknown how many R-44 prototypes are built, but it is confirmed that at least one unit later falls into the ownership of Roy Jung, curator of a war museum at the Frontier IV Colony. Roy restores the unit and gives it the unofficial model number RXR-44 (with 44 being his age when he acquired the suit). Roy takes his prized R-44 into battle in a valiant, but foolhardy attempt to help repel the Crossbone Vanguard forces invading his home colony in March UC 0123.
