As the conflict between the people of Earth and the Moonrace continued, the political situation on the Moon changed. An alliance between Agrippa Maintainer and Gym Ghingnham sought to usurp power from Queen Dianna Soriel. During this time, Gym began research on the Dark History, and his excavations on the Moon yield several mobile suits: the Concept-X 6-1-2 (Project 6, Division 1, Block 2) Turn X for his personal use, and several G-M1F Bandit units for his oddly-dressed young pilot Merrybell Gadget. The history of the Turn X was as much a mystery as that of Loran Cehack’s System-∀99 ∀ Gundam, but Gym stated that the Turn X was the “brother” to the Turn A. It was also speculated that the Turn X was constructed outside of Earth’s solar system. As a fighting unit, the Turn X was more than a match for any contemporary or excavated suit, including the Turn A itself. The Turn X’s construction allowed it to break apart into many pieces, with each one functioning as individual weapons. The Turn X’s right arm lacked a hand, but in its place was a manipulator capable of firing a powerful beam, as well as the Shining Finger attack. The Turn X also carried more standard armaments, such as a bazooka and beam rifle. Perhaps one of the Turn X’s strangest abilities was the power to suck the energy out of enemy suits, including even that of the pilot! As the “brother” to the Turn A, the Turn X was also capable of unleashing the apocalyptic Moonlight Butterfly that was used by the Turn A to destroy Earth’s advanced technology two millennia earlier. Gym used the Turn X throughout the remainder of the Earth/Moonrace conflict until a final showdown with the Turn A. In the last battle, both suits (and Gym himself) became encased in a cocoon after using the Moonlight Butterfly.
