A Newtype-use transformable mobile armor developed at the Titans’ Augusta Newtype Laboratory, the NRX-055 Baund-Doc was perhaps one of the strangest mobile weapons fielded during the Gryps War. Despite its apparent size and bulk, the Baund-Doc’s half-egg-shaped mobile armor mode was fast and maneuverable, equally capable of offensive and defensive operations, and it transformed into a non-symmetrical mobile suit form armed with a beam rifle and beam saber for standard one-on-one combat, as well as a powerful diffuse mega particle cannon mounted in its large left arm for attacking several targets at once. It is equipped with a psycommu system which allowed its pilot to more directly interface with the Baund-Doc’s operation. Although normal human pilots could operate this transformable mobile weapon, its true potential only came out in the hands of a genetically engineered Cyber Newtype or a natural Newtype. Only three units were constructed, designated NRX-055-1 through NRX-055-3. Unit 1 was the prototype, and its cockpit was set up with two seats – one for the pilot, and another for an instructor/operator. All three units proved to be deadly foes for the AEUG, although none of the Baund-Docs survived the war.
