Developed by the Earth Federation Forces’ elite Titans branch, the ORX-012 Gundam Mk-IV was created mainly to battle the anti-Federation group Karaba, which was operating on Earth at the time. Developed at the Augusta Research Institute, the Gundam Mk-IV was based on the MSF-007 Gundam Mk-III built by Anaheim Electronics. Though this large machine cleaved closely to the classic Gundam design, it also installed a quasi-psycommu system. This special system allowed a non-Newtype pilot to execute an all-range attack through the use of a wire-guided incom. The success of the Mk-IV led to the creation of the ORX-013 Gundam Mk-V, which borrowed much of the Mk-IV’s design ethics.
