Technical and Historical Notes

The MSAM-YM03 Montero was a prototype mobile suit developed by the Amerian Forces and piloted by Klim Nick. The Montero was designed for solo long-range operations, and the combination of its high power thrusters and wings (which doubled as shields) allowed it to perform sustained atmospheric flight without having to rely on a sub-flight system. The cockpit’s spherical shape resembled the GH-001 Grimoire. The Montero’s armaments included vulcan guns, a wire hook, missiles, a beam rifle and a beam javelin that mounted beam wires and could separate into two pieces. Klim’s prototype unit served as the basis for the later Mass Production Montero.
