Technical and Historical Notes

The AEUG’s Earth-based Karaba allies faced a crisis with appearance of the Titans’ new transformable mobile armors, as the main Karaba mobile suits, the RMS-179 GM II and MSA-003 Nemo, were unable to efficiently fight them. Using data from the AEUG, Karaba devised several solutions to address the problem. One such idea was the MSK-100S Hyaku-Shiki Kai Ground Type,  a re-design of Char Aznable’s MSN-00100 Hyaku-Shiki. In order to prevent moisture and dust exposure, underwater seals were implemented. The performance made it excel in any combat situations including underwater, marsh lands, forests, deserts, etc. The wing binders from the the Hyaku-Shiki were removed; maximum power was situated for hovering combat. Though the armaments were already exceptionally high, a missile pod and a beam cannon were also included as optional equipment. A small number of units were produced to face off against the Titans’ transformable mobile armors.
