Technical and Historical Notes

During the Battle of Palau, Marida Cruz’s NZ-666 Kshatriya was heavily damaged by Banagher Links’ RX-0 Unicorn Gundam and captured by the Londo Bell ship Nahel Argama. As part of an alliance with Suberoa Zinnerman’s Neo Zeon faction, the Nahel Argama‘s engineers conducted partial field repairs and renamed the suit Kshatriya Besserung (the name Besserung meaning “improvement” in German). The suit’s partially severed right leg was replaced with a makeshift leg. Only one of the four binder wings remained intact, and all funnels were destroyed in combat. Once repairs were completed, the suit was again renamed as the Kshatriya Repaired.
