At the end of the First Neo Zeon War, the Earth Federation Forces captured several reserve units of Neo Zeon’s AMX-014 Doven Wolf and transferred them to Anaheim Electronics’ Granada factory for further study of the quasi-psycommu system. The factory was staffed by many former employees of the Augusta Labs, and they modified the Doven Wolf units into the ARX-014 Silver Bullet. The general appearance of the Doven Wolf was retained, although the Silver Bullet mounted either a Gundam or GM styled head depending on its function. Units featuring Gundam heads tested quasi-psycommu weapons, while units with GM heads tested enhanced measurement sensors. The Silver Bullet also retained the Doven Wolf’s quasi-psycommu system, which allowed a non-Newtype pilot to conduct all-range attacks. The Silver Bullet was armed with wire-guided hands and incoms, shoulder-mounted beam cannons, missile launchers, beam sabers and a beam rifle. The private Vist Foundation acquired several Silver Bullet units. Anaheim also produced the ARX-014P Silver Bullet (Funnel Test Type). In April UC 0096, three Silver Bullet pilots were killed in a mock combat battle gone wrong against the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. Near the end of Laplace Incident, Vist loyalist Gael Chan used a Silver Bullet in an attempt to defend the Magallanica inside the Industrial 7 space colony from Full Frontal’s massive mobile armor NZ-999 Neo Zeong. In UC 0097, Banagher Links piloted another variant, the ARX-014S Silver Bullet Suppressor.
