Technical and Historical Notes

 

Another in a long line of mobile suit prototypes developed by the Earth Federation Forces and the Titans during the Gryps Conflict, the RX-160 Byarlant was one of the few new designs which was fast and agile, yet did not require external support systems or mobile armor transformations to achieve this. Capable of self-sustained atmospheric flight, the Byarlant mounted powerful thrusters in its shoulders and on its waist, with a large-capacity fuel tank in its torso to keep them running. However, it was only armed with beam sabers and pair of mega particle guns in its hands, limiting its flexibility due to a lack of versatile weapons. This factor kept the Byarlant from being mass produced, although one test unit was used in combat by Titans pilot Jerid Messa during the later parts of the Gryps Conflict. Years later, tthe EFF deployed an enhanced variant, the RX-160S Byarlant Custom, when Zeon remnants attacked Australia's Torrington Base in UC 0096.
