Designed with a similar concept to the EMA-01 Auxilio, the EMA-02 Thostede was a mobile suit support unit. However, while the Auxilio was intended to supplement a mobile suit’s firepower, the Thostede’s main purpose was to enhance mobility and provide transport capacity, like the YS-11 Dodai YS and Gettar units from conflicts past. It could be piloted or “driven” by a mobile suit standing atop its main body, and like the Auxilio it was an outdated model by the time of the Jovian War in UC 0133.
