The RX-160G Byarlant Isolde was a customized space use version of the RX-160 Byarlant that was first fielded by the Titans in UC 0087 during the Gryps War. The Byarlant Isolde’s name was inspired by the mythological tale Tristan and Iseult, which also lended its name to the RX-78AN-01 Gundam AN-01 Tristan. The Byarlant Isolde was used by Birnam, a private army belonging to Scharnhorst Buch, founder of the Buch Concern. It was unknown how Birnam acquired the base Byarlant unit. The Byarlant Isolde’s backpack was reconfigured for space and equipped with a pair of propellant tanks. The Byarlant Isolde retained the original’s armaments of a pair of mega particle guns and beam sabers. In UC 0096, Byarlant Isolde pilot Walter Fermo joined his brother, Tristan pilot Quentin Fermo, in attacking the Earth Federation Forces’ special unit Mastema at the former Neo Zeon asteroid Axis. Walter engaged former Neo Zeon test pilot Danton Hyleg, who recovered an AMX-011S Zaku III Custom that he previously piloted years earlier.
