The AMA-01X Jamru Fin was a transformable mobile armor being developed by Neo Zeon during the First Neo Zeon War that was never completed. Instead, the three unfinished prototypes were fitted with makeshift arms and heads and put into service, piloted by the “3-D” team of Dale, Dune and Danny. The Jamru Fin was a fast and powerful mobile armor, its primary armament being a high mega cannon capable of knocking out enemy warships outside of their sensor ranges. The Jamru Fin could transform into a squat, mobile suit-like form armed with hand-mounted beam guns/beam sabers for close combat. Its mobile armor form could also be fitted with the AMF-02R Mega Booster, which mounted additional weapons, increased the Jamru Fin’s speed and range, and also increased the output power of its high mega cannon. The Jamru Fin was also designed to be fitted with another, much larger, super-long-range booster powered by a nuclear pulse engine capable of operating in the intense gravity well of Jupiter.
