The MSA-005S Methuss Kai was a trial production transformable mobile suit based on the AEUG’s MSA-005 Methuss. The body was slightly altered from the standard Methuss and was made specifically for bombardment. The nose portion was equipped with a high mega cannon for main use in mobile armor mode, though it could also be used in mobile suit mode. The joints were also strengthened from the standard Methuss, which solved the problem of the original’s weak body. Compared to the Methuss, the mobile armor mode was greatly improved with the high mega cannon and increased thrust. Several experimental units were built and sent to Karaba on Earth, where they played an active role in the war against the Titans.
