The MF-ED-52U El-Darr was the personal unit of Bohn, a member of Le Cain’s elite (and bloodthirsty) Demon Squad. The El-Darr’s armaments included a lasered gun and a pair of snake drills mounted inside the hands. The snake drills could penetrate an SPT’s armor and course through its body, inflicting substantial damage. When the Demon Squad was tasked with destroying Eiji Asuka’s SPT-LZ-00X Layzner, the El-Darr received a new weapon in the form of a flamethrower. In a subsequent battle with Layzner, the El-Darr was accidentally destroyed in an act of friendly fire by Mangello’s MF-GL-73U Gashlan.
