In late C.E. 71, Junk Guild technician Lowe Guele forges a 150 meter "Gerbera Straight" katana using rare metal from a meteor that crashes to Earth. The blade proves too large for Lowe's MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame, so he creates the Power Loader support unit. However, the Power Loader is destroyed during a battle with ZAFT pilot Ash Gray's ZGMF-X11A Regenerate Gundam. To wield the giant blade, Lowe creates a new pair of arms for the Red Frame, which utilize new power cylinders created by engineer/mobile suit pilot Jean Carrey. Dubbed "Powered Red," Lowe uses the upgraded arms during his final battle with Ash's Regenerate Gundam. Afterwards, Lowe removes the powered arms and restores the original arms.
