The last custom handmade mobile suit built by Paptimus Scirocco aboard the Jupitris during the Gryps War, the PMX-003 The-O was Scirocco’s personal mobile suit, employed in the last days of the war. Although highly bulky and heavily armored, it was equipped with 50 attitude control verniers, easily overcoming its own awkward mass and making it one of the most agile and maneuverable mobile suits of its time. Although only armed with a beam rifle and a set of beam swords, The-O sported several unique features, such as multi-jointed limbs and a set of sub-arms mounted under its front skirt armor, each of which could wield a beam sword. The-O was also equipped with a bio-sensor similar to that of the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam, essentially acting as a substitute psycommu system and allowing Scirocco, who was a powerful Newtype, to more easily interface with his mobile suit and more quickly carry out or dodge attacks. Scirocco was defeated by Kamille Bidan’s Zeta Gundam during the final battle of the Gryps War in early UC 0088, but in his last moments he took advantage of the bio-sensors present in both suits to launch a crippling mental attack on Kamille.
