Technical and Historical Notes

 

The last model of the Berga series, the Crossbone Vanguard's XM-05B Berga Balus mobile suit is a high-performance, customized version of the standard XM-05 Berga Giros. The increase in performance in the Berga Balus is due primarily to the "wide wing type" shelf nozzles on its backpack. With the thrusters arranged over a much wider arc, the Berga Balus is much more maneuverable than its Berga Giros predecessor. At least one Giros-type unit is known to exist, operated by the Crossbone Vanguard's Dark Tiger force in Side 3's Zebra Zone in early UC 0123.
