The pinnacle of Zeon Newtype-use mobile weapon technology at its time, the NZ-000 Queen Mansa is considered one of the most powerful mobile weapons ever constructed. Designed and constructed by Neo Zeon's Glemy Toto faction during the First Neo Zeon War, the Queen Mansa combines the best features of the successful AMX-004 Qubeley series and the Titans' MRX-010 Psyco Gundam Mark II into one design. This massive mobile suit is armed with wide variety of beam weapons, and carries 30 psycommu-controlled funnels in a large tail binder. The massive binders on its shoulders house a variant of the I-field barrier concept called a mega particle deflection system, which not only absorbs or deflects incoming beam weapons fire like a standard I-field, but can also redirect that beam fire back at the foe that fired it. Like the AMX-004-3 Qubeley Mark II, the Queen Mansa can be controlled externally via a psycommu controller headset worn by the pilot, and like the Psyco Gundam Mark II (and even the old Principality of Zeon's MSN-02 Zeong), the Queen Mansa's head can detach and operate independently if the main body is heavily damaged and destroyed.
Only one Queen Mansa unit is built, operated by Glemy's young pet Newtype soldier Ple Two, and it's fielded against Neo Zeon leader Haman Karn's loyalist forces during Glemy's insurrection in January UC 0089. However, the Queen Mansa - along with Glemy Toto - are soon destroyed inside the asteroid base Axis by the AEUG's Gundam Team. Later factions of Neo Zeon continue the development of large scale, Newtype-use mobile weapons, including the NZ-333 α Azieru from the Second Neo Zeon War in UC 0093, and the NZ-666 Kshatriya from the Laplace Incident in UC 0096.
