The D-50C Loto was a mobile suit created exclusively for the Earth Federation Forces’ ECOAS special forces group. Developed by the Strategic Naval Research Institute (SNRI), the Loto was an evolution of the old RX-75-4 Guntank used during the One Year War. Unlike the Guntank, the Loto could transform from a humanoid mobile suit to a tank mode. In its tank mode, the Loto could function as a troop transport and field headquarters thanks to its varied sensors and communication equipment. In its standard configuration, the Loto mounted a machine cannon on its right shoulder. This cannon could be swapped out for a pair of long cannons or a mega machine cannon. The Loto also featured a missile container that could be armed with either four large missiles or 12 small ones. The suit’s sub-arms were equipped with a pair of beam burners that functioned as melee weapons similar to a beam saber. As the Laplace Incident of UC 0096 began to unfold, an ECOAS team and several Loto units were stationed aboard the Londo Bell ship Nahel Argama. The Loto was succeeded by the F-50D Guntank, a transforming mobile suit created by Anaheim Electronics.
