When Jupiter Energy Fleet captain Paptimus Scirocco returned to the Earth Sphere aboard his resource carrier ship Jupitris during the Gryps War, he brought along his personal handmade transformable mobile armor, the PMX-000 Messala. A large unit equipped with powerful thrusters to operate under Jupiter’s high gravitational pull, the Messala was extremely fast and agile when he operated it in the normal gravitational forces of the Earth Sphere. Armed with a pair of heavy mega particle cannons and a pair of missile launchers, it packed almost as much firepower as a battleship. When transformed into its mobile suit mode, it also mounted grenade launchers, beam sabers, vulcan guns, and grappling vice claws, also making it highly effective in close-range combat. After initially piloting it in several battles, Scirocco handed the Messala down to two devoted loyalists: Sarah Zabiarov, and later on, AEUG traitor Reccoa Londe.
