Technical and Historical Notes

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 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 It could be piloted or “driven” by a mobile suit standing atop its main body, and like the Auxilio it was an outdated model by the time of the Jovian War in UC 0133.
