Technical and Historical Notes

The New United Nations Earth’s NRX-0015 Gundam Ashtaron was a fairly heavy mobile suit capable of transforming into a flight-capable mobile armor form. Despite its size and bulk, the Ashtaron was equipped with sufficient thrust to allow it to not only fly and maneuver at high speeds, but also to carry Shagia Frost’s NRX-0013 Gundam Virsago on its back in mobile armor mode. The Ashtaron’s primary armaments were a pair of atomic scissors claws, which not only served as large and powerful grappling/striking melee weapons in both modes, but were also armed with beam cannons for equally flexible ranged attacks. Piloted by Shagia’s younger brother, Olba Frost, the Gundam Ashtaron proved to be an extremely difficult menace to the Vulture crew of the land battleship Freeden in A.W. 0015. The Ashtaron was later upgraded to the more powerful NRX-0015-HC Gundam Ashtaron Hermit Crab.
