Technical and Historical Notes

 

After the AEUG steals three RX-178 Gundam Mk-II units from the Titans in UC 0087, one is sent to Anaheim Electronics for study. The data gathered from disassembling the Mk-II leads to the creation of the MSF-007 Gundam Mk-III. The Mk-III features an overhauled movable frame and utilizes Gundarium alloy, which is more lightweight and improves both defensive capabilities and mobility. The Mk-III returns to the starting point of mobile suits - organic movement similar to the human body. The Mk-III's armaments include a twin barrel beam cannon, a shield, a beam saber and a long barrel beam rifle. Anaheim produces several Mk-III units for data gathering purposes. Unit 8 features the same anti-beam coating as the MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki. Its coating is red, indicating that the suit is intended for ace pilot Quattro Bajeena (aka Char Aznable). Unit 8 is secretly transported out of the lunar city of Granada for delivery to the AEUG's Collier Fleet. However, the transport is attacked en route by Axis mobile suits in the Garden of Thorns, forcing escort pilot Boyd Swan to use Unit 8 in self-defense. Although he is able to defeat the Axis forces, Unit 8 is heavily damaged in the battle.
