Technical and Historical Notes

In the military chaos of A.W. 0015, the Frost brothers were charged with the task of eliminating the stolen GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X, as well as testing potential Newtypes for the Newtype Labs. As part of their secret plan to eliminate all Newtypes, they sent three potential pilots to their deaths in failed attempts to destroy the Double X. On their fourth attempt, they sent out the NRX-016 Rasveht, piloted by Abel Bauer. Unlike the previous units, the Rasveht was equipped with the Flash System used by the old United Nations Earth’s Gundam-type suits. The Rasveht’s armament consisted of a simple beam rifle and beam saber, but combined with the five Rasveht bits it proved to be a powerful foe. Unlike the Gundam types, all of the Rasveht units looked alike, making it difficult to determine which one had an actual human pilot. With the help of Tiffa Adill, Garrod Ran was able to cripple Bauer’s unit and forced him to escape. As the last of the New U.N.E.’s potential Newtypes, Bauer was murdered by Shagia Frost.
