One of Anaheim Electronics’ earliest attempts to cash in on smaller scale mobile suit development, the F-50D (RXR-44) Guntank R-44 was based on an earlier transforming artillery mobile suit, the D-50C Loto. Due to its small size, the R-44’s 200mm main cannons had to be loaded manually, and its main body contained enough space for four personnel to fully operate the mobile suit. The design seemed to have proved a failure, however, and the R-44 never made it past the prototype stage. It was unknown how many R-44 prototypes were built, but it is confirmed that at least one unit later fell into the ownership of Roy Jung, curator of a war museum at the Frontier IV Colony. Roy restored the unit and gave it the unofficial model number RXR-44 (with 44 being his age when he acquired the suit). Roy took his prized R-44 into battle in a valiant, but foolhardy attempt to help repel the Crossbone Vanguard forces invading his home colony in March UC 0123.
