Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the 7th Space War, the Space Revolutionary Army develops various mobile suits and armors for use by Newtype pilots. One such suit is the RMSN-008 Bertigo. This agile mobile suit carries the standard armament of beam rifles, machine cannons and beam sabers, but its most powerful weapon is the "bit." These remotely operated beam guns can only be operated by a Newtype, but their power is devastating. The ability of the bits to create an all-range attack proves to be nearly impossible for a non-Newtype to beat. Before the war's end, the SRA plans to bring a swift end to the battle with its Operation Lilac. In this operation, five Bertigos are supposed to escort the massive Newtype mobile fortress MAN-003 Patulia down to Earth to attack the United Nations Earth headquarters. However, the five Bertigos are destroyed in atmospheric combat, and the Patulia changes course and crashes elsewhere. It's not known how many Bertigos survive the war, but one unit is piloted in A.W. 0015 by artificial Newtype Carris Nautilus. The effectiveness of the Bertigo is displayed in battle when Carris severely damages Garrod Ran's GX-9900 Gundam X. After the fall of Fort Severn, Carris helps to rebuild the city and later joins resistance forces fighting against the New UNE in North America. After rescuing the former crew of the Freeden, Carris joins their fight in space during the brief 8th Space War.
