Following the successful testing of Newtype pilots Elpeo Ple and Ple Two using their AMX-004-2 and AMX-004-3 Qubeley Mk-II mobile suits, Glemy Toto – intent on staging a coup against Haman Karn for control of Neo Zeon – began mass production of an improved Qubeley to be manned by his army of Ple Two clones. Called the AMX-004G Qubeley Mass Production Type, this unit was introduced in January UC 0089 during the last days of the First Neo Zeon War. Although in many ways similar to the Qubeley Mk-IIs, the MP Type featured greater firepower in two areas: a pair of active cannons on its backpack, capable of firing in a wide arc covering both the mobile suit’s front and rear; and a larger capacity tail binder, capable of holding 30 remote funnel weapons. With a Newtype army at his command, Glemy started his civil war against Haman; however, determined Haman loyalists – aided by a lot of luck and a bit of their own Newtype abilities – stopped the Ple clones and their mass produced Qubeleys, resulting in an almost complete mutual annihilation of both Neo Zeon factions. Early production models were painted gray, but the final production models were rolled out in a black paint scheme similar to the Qubeley Mk-II. At least one MP Type, possibly the unit piloted by Ple Twelve, fell into the hands of the mysterious Vist Foundation by UC 0096.
