Technical and Historical Notes

 

Developed entirely in secret under the codename "Lafressia Project" beginning in UC 0119, the XMA-01 Lafressia mobile armor can be considered a physical manifestation of the twisted and gruesome personality of the Crossbone Vanguard's leader, Korozo "Iron Mask" Ronah. Named after a type of flower, the Lafressia visually resembles its namesake, being composed of a main body "stalk" and five binder "petals." A variety of high-powered beam weapons are mounted all over the mobile armor, and it's also equipped with an anti-beam barrier to deflect incoming enemy beam weapons fire. Each petal of the Lafressia is also armed with 125 tentacle rods, each of which has a superheated chainsaw blade in its tip. All of these weapons make the Lafressia a deadly weapon to use for both long-range strikes and anti-MS close combat.

 

The Lafressia, being Korozo's personal unit, is controlled by his brainwaves via a "neo-psycommu" system - an advancement on the classic psycommu technology. This system, which is composed of receptors in Iron Mask's helmet, connect to the mobile armor via a great number of fiber optic cables, allowing Korozo to completely control all aspects of his machine without the use of manual controls. Stored aboard the flagship Zamouth Garr, the Lafressia is only deployed once near the end of the initial conflicts during the Crossbone Vanguard invasion of March UC 0123. Korozo takes his mobile armor into battle to kill his rebellious daughter Berah Ronah, who is trying to stop his plan to kill all humans living on Earth with his Bug weapons. Though his Lafressia delivers serious damage to Berah's XM-07 Vigna-Ghina, the mighty mobile armor soon falls to Seabook Arno, who uses some ingenious tricks in taking advantage of the Gundam F91's abilities to cause the Lafressia to destroy itself.
