The Silver Chalice Treaty that ended the space wars of the previous era also restricted the development of weapons by the military, but many mobile suit smiths continued their work, including the famous Asuno family. When the Unknown Enemy attacked the space colony Ovan in AG 108, young Flit Asuno inherited the AGE device from his dying mother. Using the data on the AGE device and the inspiration from painting of the legendary mobile suit known as “The Gundam”, Flit spent the next seven years developing the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal. The AGE-1 Normal’s performance far exceeded that of the Earth Federation Forces’ mass produced RGE-B790 Genoace, and it could fight on an equal level with the Unknown Enemy’s ovv-f Gafran. However, its biggest innovation was the chest-mounted AGE System, an advanced computer that analyzed combat data to create new weapons and modular wear parts. The AGE Builder, a self-contained production factory, could quickly construct anything conceived by the AGE System.

The AGE-1 was completed in AG 115 just as the Unknown Enemy attacked the space colony Nora. Due to the chaos of the surprise attack, Flit volunteered to pilot the AGE-1 Normal into battle and defeated a Gafran on his first sortie. However, the hastily equipped Genoace beam spray gun proved ineffective, so the AGE System devised its first weapon, the powerful DODS rifle. Through further battles, the AGE System created multiple wear parts that could be swapped on the battlefield through the AMEMBO delivery system. An alliance led by the battleship Diva revealed the true face of the Unknown Enemy as the Vagan, the abandoned colonists of Mars. Following the War of Bat Extermination, Flit continued to upgrade the AGE-1 with new wear parts, and the Earth Federation Forces mass produced the AGE-1 as the RGE-G1100 Adele. In AG 140, Flit’s teenage son Asemu briefly used the suit to defend the space colony Tordia from Vagan attacks. When the AGE System was transferred to Asemu’s new AGE-2 Gundam AGE-2 Normal, the AGE-1 was modified at Big Ring into the AGE-1F Gundam AGE-1 Flat. The AGE-1 continued to serve as Flit’s personal mobile suit for another quarter century, with its final evolution being the upgraded AGE-1G Gundam AGE-1 Gransa.
