Technical and Historical Notes

Originally designed in UC 0080, the AMX-001 Prototype Qubeley was intended to be a mobile suit-sized version of the MAN-08 Elmeth, the first mobile weapon to use wireless bits. The construction was mainly done by the Flanagan Institute, which collected the Elmeth’s remains from its final resting place. However, due to technical limitations at the time, the psycommu system could not be loaded into a normal-sized mobile suit. As a result, the Prototype Qubeley was 25 meters tall to accommodate the control system. Its other weapons included the Elmeth’s mega particle cannons, integrated into its body near its arms, and two beam sabers. Because the Prototype Qubeley managed to have good efficiency in both weapons and overall performance, it went on to be the basis of many Neo Zeon Newtype mobile suits, including the AMX-004 Qubeley.
