The ARX-014P Silver Bullet (Funnel Test Type) was a variation of the ARX-014 Silver Bullet, which itself was a reworking of Neo Zeon’s AMX-014 Doven Wolf. After the end of the First Neo Zeon War in UC 0089, the Earth Federation Forces confiscated several reserve Doven Wolf units and transferred them to Anaheim Electronics’ Granada factory for further evaluation of the quasi-psycommu system. The Silver Bullet’s exterior was similar to the Neo Zeon version, although its head was replaced with a Gundam style head. The ARX-014P was designated as a testbed for EFF funnel weapons and was equipped with a wired large funnel on its back. The funnel contained its own built-in generator.
