By the year CC 2345, Earth has become a world devoid of advanced technology like spaceships or mobile suits. That changes when advance forces from the Moonrace's Dianna Counter arrive on Earth to begin colonization. Outside the Inglessa capital city Nocis, youngsters hold a Coming of Age ceremony where they dance and offer prayers in front of the "White Doll" statue. During the Coming of Age ceremony for Loran Cehack and Sochie Heim, the Dianna Counter forces attack Nocis. The White Doll statue crumbles during the attack, revealing a fully operational white mobile suit, the SYSTEM ∀-99 ∀ Gundam. Unsure of how to control it, Loran can do nothing when the Turn A automatically fires its beam rifle at the Dianna Counter forces, which are totally unaware of mobile suits being present on Earth.
After several battles, the White Doll becomes the symbol for the Inglessa Militia and its chief source of military power during the excavation of more mobile suits. Loran first becomes aware of the Turn A's past when he encounters mentally unstable Moonrace pilot Corin Nander, who refers to it as a "Gundam." Loran discovers more when assassin Teteth Halleh identifies the suit as "Turn A." The Turn A's main propulsion is provided by an I-field Beam Drive System, which leaves the suit completely hollow and allows it to be filled with extra armaments and rocket thrusters. The Turn A also utilizes an advanced nanotech self-repair system. Standard armament consists of two beam sabers and a beam rifle. The Turn A is even equipped with an anti-nuclear weapon barrier protecting it from nuclear weapons. When the Willghem begins the journey for the Moon, Loran encounters the primitive Adesca tribe, who believe that the Turn A marks the end of their history. It is on the Moon that Loran finally learns the terrible truth behind the Turn A's history.
As revealed by Gym Ghingnham and archived footage of the "Black History," the Turn A is responsible for the destruction of Earth's civilization. Built by an unknown party, the Turn A employs the "Moonlight Butterfly" system, a powerful attack that unleashes nanomachines across the world and destroys civilization. According the Gym, the Turn A is the brother unit to his own CONCEPT-X 6-1-2 Turn X, which is excavated from a Moon mountain cycle. After learning the truth about the Turn A, Loran discovers several new features, most noticeably a Core Fighter, which is actually the cockpit and front skirt armor. Other features include the ability to disappear from visual sight by unknown means. Loran is forced to temporarily abandon the Turn A, which is captured by Gym's forces and fitted with the cockpit from a MRC-F20 SUMO. The Turn A and Turn X later have their final showdown on Earth, where both suits activate their Moonlight Butterfly systems and are encased in a large cocoon- along with Gym himself.
