A new mass production design which beat out the competing AMX-011 Zaku III during the First Neo Zeon War, the AMX-014 Doven Wolf was found to be much more powerful and contemporary than its competition by the Neo Zeon military. The Doven Wolf’s design was completed by Loren Nakamoto, a researcher from the Augusta Labs who defected to Neo Zeon after the Gryps War. Using design concepts taken from the salvaged Titans’ mobile suit MRX-010 Psycho Gundam Mk-II, the Doven Wolf incorporated a wide variety of beam weapons all over its body, including wire-guided remote beam gun forearms and wire-guided remote incom beam guns, all controlled by a quasi-psycommu computer control system. These features allowed a non-Newtype pilot to conduct all-range attacks similar to those made by a Newtype pilot using a standard psycommu system. In addition to its plethora of beam weapons, the Doven Wolf also mounted missile launchers, grenade launchers, and vulcan guns for additional firepower.

However, its primary armament was its high powered beam rifle, which could be connected directly to the mega particle guns in its abdomen and fired as an even more powerful mega launcher weapon. All of these weapons and features helped to make the Doven Wolf one of the single most powerful mobile suit designs developed during the First Neo Zeon War. Many of the Doven Wolf units produced were operated by pilots working for Glemy Toto’s anti-Haman Karn faction during Neo Zeon’s internal conflicts near the end of the war. At the end of the war, some units were confiscated by the Earth Federation Forces and transferred to Anaheim Electronics for additional testing, where they were modified into the ARX-014 Silver Bullet. In the years after the war, the original version of the Doven Wolf remained in service with the “Sleeves” faction of Neo Zeon.
