Technical and Historical Notes

The NRX-044 Prototype Asshimar TR-3 [Kehaar] was remodeled for atmospheric use after the completion of its space testing, and new tests were conducted to evaluate the durability of its transformation mechanisms under gravity and to establish tactical and operational methods for the new weapons category of “flight-capable transformable mobile armor.” Based on development data from the previously tested Earth Federation Forces version of the NRX-044 Asshimar, improvements and enhancement parts were added to each part of the machine. New prototype thermonuclear engines were installed in the leg sections which served as the Kehaar’s main propulsion devices, giving it far greater thrust than a standard Asshimar. As an enhancement part, the Kehaar was equipped with a skirt unit containing supplemental thrusters for vertical takeoff. Since this unit included fixed wings for stabilizing the machine’s flight attitude, its silhouette in mobile armor form was very different from that of the standard version. The skirt unit was also useful for attitude control during aerial combat in mobile suit form. A spread beam gun similar to that of the old Principality of Zeon’s MS-09 Dom was installed in the left side of the Kehaar’s chest, and each knee housed the same type of supplemental generator installed in the RX-121 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel] movable booster pod. A beam emitter was built into the stock of the beam rifle, enabling it to double as a beam axe or beam scythe. The beam rifle and one energy pack holder could be attached to a latch behind the Kehaar’s waist.
