A mobile suit support base, the Noselle was inspired by designs such as the YS-11 Dodai YS and Gettar used in the previous century. Though it could function both in space and on Earth, it lacked the ability to perform atmospheric reentry unassisted. The Noselle could carry a single mobile suit and, thanks to its design, could be “driven” by said suit in a fashion similar to a personal watercraft. However, its main purpose was to function as a base of operations, much like the AEUG’s FXA-08R Mega Rider. The main cockpit had seating for four, and further inside were living quarters for an extended deployment. During the battle to stop the Jupiter Empire’s new colony laser, SNRI loaned the Noselle to Tobia Arronax, who used it to find and recruit the best pilots he could for the mission. When the newly formed “Steel 7” headed off to Jupiter, they stayed in the relative comfort of the Noselle while en route, and afterwards the craft is used to help the Arana Abejo make up for its unbalanced performance.
