Technical and Historical Notes

 

The mass-produced mobile armor TS-MA2 Moebius serves as the backbone of the Earth Alliance's military for most of the Bloody Valentine War. As a mass-produced model it is inexpensive to construct and can be outfitted with various types of weapons. The main armament of the Moebius includes a linear gun and four missile launchers, all mounted beneath the main body. The Moebius can also be equipped with nuclear missiles, which are used to destroy the ZAFT PLANT Junius Seven on February 14, C.E. 70, in what is later known as the "Bloody Valentine" incident that ignites the war. Following the Bloody Valentine, ZAFT initiates Operation Uroboros and deploys Neutron Jammers (N-Jammers) in space and on Earth to disrupt all nuclear reactions. With the introduction of ZAFT's first mobile suit, the ZGMF-1017 GINN, the Moebius quickly becomes the inferior unit and performs poorly in combat. To respond to the ineffectiveness of the Moebius type, the Alliance's Atlantic Federation begins a secret project to develop mobile suits more powerful than the GINN. The end result of this project is five prototype Gundam mobile suits. In late C.E. 71, the Alliance secretly acquires ZAFT's N-Jammer Canceler technology, which nullifies the N-Jammer's abilities. With this new technology, the Alliance sends many Moebius units back to the front lines equipped with nuclear missiles to once again attack the PLANTs.
