Technical and Historical Notes

 

After the Vagan war, Bisidian pirate leader Asemu Asuno decides that he and his restless underlings should get into the space resource exploration business. Having received amnesty from the Federation, Asemu has the flagship Baronoke and its mobile suits modified for this purpose. Using his connections within the Madorna Workshop and various colonial governments, Asemu manages to negotiate with the Federation and other related parties Bisidian’s entry into the space resource development industry. One of the results is the development of space resource exploration use mobile suit, the BMS-008 Rogue Bat. This suit is created by Madorna Workshop and is basically a modified version of the BMS-003 Shaldoll Rogue. Asemu subsequently transfers the resources he discovers to his crew members, allowing the business to expand to other parts of the solar system. This then leads to the term Bisidian Connection being a popular word in the space resource development industry for quite some time. In fact, some of the present large resource development companies have their roots with the Bisidian pirates.

 

The Rogue Bat’s head is equipped with powerful sensors that can detect UV to IR light emitted from the surface of asteroids and other space rocks for a long duration. The wings on its back serve to increase the its AMBAC capability and contain broad-range active radio sensors that are specialized for space resource exploration purposes. The multipurpose beam emitter system on its right arm is for self defense and through fine adjustment of its output can be used for various purposes, such as obtaining resource samples, drilling, seismic measurements through the firing of a strong beam and other activities that are required for geological studies. To facilitate independent long distant missions, two propellant tanks can be attached to the wings and the cockpit is also enlarged for increased comfort. Besides Bisidian pirates, the suits are also supplied to other companies in the industry and it wins over many pilots, even earning the nickname "nurse maid."
