Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the Titans continue to build up their military and political power in their crusade to rule the Earth Sphere with an iron fist, one area of research actively pursued by the Titans is "Cyber Newtypes" - artificially-engineered Newtypes who can operate revolutionary new Newtype-controlled weapons. At their Murasame Laboratory in Japan, the Titans build the Federation's first Newtype-use unit, the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam. Equipped with a psycommu ("psychic communicator") system similar to that developed by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War (hence the name "Psyco," which is short for "psycommu"), the Psycho Gundam's tremendous beam weapon firepower can be controlled by the pilot's mere thoughts. The Psycho Gundam is heavily armed, sporting a 3-barreled diffuse beam cannon in its chest, ten beam guns in its fingers and a 2-barrel beam gun in its head, making the unit capable of attacking several targets at one (or levelling lots of real estate). Due to its massive size, the Psycho Gundam can transform into a "mobile fortress" mode equipped with a Minovsky craft system to give it high-altitude atmospheric flight. The Psycho Gundam's chosen pilot is Murasame Labs' cyber Newtype "Number Four," or Four Murasame, and the unit is soon dispatched to destroy the AEUG and Karaba forces operating on Earth. The Psycho Gundam is severely damaged during an AEUG mission to launch Kamille Bidan and his RX-178 Gundam Mk-II back out into space, and the Psycho Gundam is taken to the Titans' Kilimanjaro base in Africa, where it is repaired and equipped with an experimental new "psycho-control chair," further enhancing Four's abilities to control the Psycho Gundam. The Psycho Gundam is destroyed in combat at Kilimanjaro, but the Titans eventually roll out a replacement, the advanced MRX-010 Psycho Gundam Mk-II.
