Technical and Historical Notes

As the conflict between the people of Earth and the Moonrace continued, the political situation on the Moon changed. An alliance between Agrippa Maintainer and Gym Ghingnham sought to usurp power from Queen Dianna Soriel. During this time, Gym began research on the Dark History, and his excavations on the Moon yielded several mobile suits: the Concept-X 6-1-2 Turn X for his personal use, and several G-M1F Bandit units for his oddly-dressed young pilot Merrybell Gadget. The Bandit’s only fixed armaments were a beam saber and a 3-tube missile launcher. However, the Bandit could also be equipped with optional missile launchers on the back. An unusual feature of the Bandit was that only one unit requires a pilot, while the others were remotely operated through other means. When Gym’s forces moved to Earth they brought along the Bandits, but due to the air pressure they were given a flight booster with a missile launcher on it. The missiles mounted on the back were of a large variety: wire-guided, wire missiles, standard missiles and even missiles that broke into other missiles.
