Technical and Historical Notes

Introduced shortly after the appearance of the dreaded Gundams in AC 195, OZ’s newest mobile suit, the OZ-12SMS Taurus (named after the second Zodiac sign meaning “bull”) was a truly advanced unit, being designed primarily for space combat but also serving well as a transformable fighter in atmosphere. Its mobility and high speed made the Taurus one of the most respected and feared mobile suits to be developed by OZ. However, the Taurus was also designed with the new mobile doll system, turning the normally manned Taurus into an unmanned, highly reactive and accurate machine controlled by an AI system. Although it was eventually supplanted by the first dedicated mobile doll unit, the OZ-02MD Virgo, the Taurus found its way into the service of many factions, including the White Fang revolutionary army, the defense forces of the pacifist Sanc Kingdom, and even the secret Mariemaia Army the following year.
