Technical and Historical Notes

The Orb Union’s MVF-M11C Murasame was a transformable mobile suit designed to replace the older MBF-M1 M1 Astray. Unlike the M1 Astray, the Murasame could transform into a fighter plane-like mobile armor. The Murasame was armed with six CIWS guns, as well as a beam cannon and missile launcher. It was also armed with a beam rifle and beam saber for melee combat. As Orb’s new main mass production mobile suit, the Murasame defended Orb’s territorial waters and was deployed abroad when the Orb Union allied itself with the Earth Alliance, following the Break the World incident in October C.E. 73. A gold colored unit used by former ZAFT ace pilot Andrew Waltfeld was stored aboard the battleship Archangel. In addition to the standard Murasame, Orb also produced two variants: the Murasame Reconnaissance Type and the MVF-M12A Ootsukigata.
