The G-838 Mahiroo was a mobile suit that was at least 1,000 years old. It was unknown who built the Mahiroo, but it was a possibility that it was built before the System-∀99 ∀ Gundam used the Moonlight Butterfly on the world. Many Mahiroos were discovered in mountain cycles on the Moon and were used exclusively by Gym Ghingnham’s forces. The Mahrioo’s main weapon was a beam gun on the shield on its right arm. It also had two blades on each arm that were used for close-range combat situations. The Mahiroos could also be used on the Earth despite some air pressure problems. One of the most interesting features about the Mahiroo was the cockpit system. The Mahiroo was equipped with both a Mobile Trace System and a standard cockpit layout, which a pilot could easily switch between. Many Mahiroos were used in the last days of the war, most famously by Sweatson Stero.
