The MRX-002 Newtype Use Prototype Gundam was a mobile suit based on the RX-78NT-1 Gundam NT-1 Alex. The prototype suit was equipped with a total of 10 wire-guided bits. To counterbalance the resulting super-heavy weight, it mounted several vernier thrusters all over its body. The large vernier on the backpack was capable of separating and functioning as a fighter. Although never built, the MRX-002 was considered the base model for the MRX-009 Psycho Gundam.
