Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Gryps War saw the introduction of many new experimental mobile suit technologies. The AEUG learned of Axis' transformable mobile suitsAMX-001 Gaza-Aand AMX-002 Gaza-B, from Char Aznable and decided to create their own model under the banner of Project Zeta. The first attempt was the MSN-00100 Hyaku-Shiki, but the design was unable to incorporate a transformation feature. Anaheim Electronics was determined to create a transformable mobile suit, and their next attempt was the successful MSA-005 Methuss. The next step in the project was three prototype units. These units did not incorporate the ability to transform and were identical, except for the heads. The X1 incorporated a head similar to that used on the Hyaku-Shiki. In the end it was decided that the head used on the X1 was superior and it was eventually used on the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam.
