Technical and Historical Notes

Following the successful performance of Axis/Neo Zeon leader Haman Karn’s AMX-004 Qubeley mobile suit, two improved Qubeley Mk-IIs were approved for construction. The first of these new Qubeleys, the AMX-004-2, was built and deployed during the First Neo Zeon War in UC 0088. Aside from its new paint scheme, the only notable technical difference between this first Mk-II and the original Qubeley was the addition of two extra funnel remote weapons. The AMX-004-2 served primarily as a test unit for its pilot, a 10-year-old girl named Elpeo Ple, and was used to determine and measure the girl’s Newtype abilities. Though the Mk-II’s weapons – and Ple’s abilities – were a serious menace to the pilots of the AEUG flagship Argama, the Mk-II was later damaged and captured, with Ple defecting to the AEUG to join her adopted “surrogate brother,” MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam pilot Judau Ashta. Later on in the war, Ple sacrificed herself and her Qubeley Mk-II to protect Judau against the threat of her own “blood” – a powerful Newtype clone named Ple Two.
