Technical and Historical Notes

 

A vehicle built by Anaheim Electronics and employed by the AEUG during the First Neo Zeon War, the FXA-08R Mega Rider is designed around the concept of combining a high-powered heavy beam weapon (similar to the AEUG's Mega Bazooka Launcher) and a sub-flight system (used to carry mobile suits in atmospheric combat). The Mega Rider is a unique-looking fusion of the two systems, with two mobile suits capable of straddling the mega launcher-equipped vehicle in a fashion similar to riding a motorcycle. In addition to being directly controlled by a riding mobile suit, the Mega Rider can also be operated from a mobile suit via remote control signal, or manually from a cockpit in the Mega Rider's main body. Because its cockpit is rather spacious, the Mega Rider can also be used as a mobile field base of sorts.
