Technical and Historical Notes

The second handmade mobile suit built by Paptimus Scirocco aboard the Jupitris during the Gryps War, the PMX-001 Palace-Athene was purely a heavy mobile suit designed for offense. Though normally armed with four beam cannons in its torso and claws on its feet, it could also be outfitted with a heavy 2-barrel beam rifle, eight battleship-grade long-range missiles, and a shield mounting several small missile launchers. Although this full equipment loadout gave the Palace-Athene the firepower equivalent of a large mobile armor or battleship, its bulk and size does caused it to suffer a lack of good speed and maneuverability. Only one Palace-Athene was built, and it was assigned to former AEUG pilot-turned-Scirocco supporter Reccoa Londe. During the final battle of the Gryps War in UC 0088, the Palace-Athene was destroyed in a battle against the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II, which was ironically piloted by Titans defector Emma Sheen.
