The RAS-96 Anksha was the successor to the NRX-044 Asshimar used by the Earth Federation Forces and the Titans during the Gryps War in UC 0087. To streamline production and maintenance, the Anksha was designed to be compatible with the standards of the EFF’s current mass production mobile suit, the RGM-89 Jegan. The Anksha specialized in high altitude unassisted flight in Earth’s atmosphere. The Anksha featured improved armaments over the original Asshimar, which only carried a large rifle. The Anksha was equipped with vulcan guns, beam sabers and two beam rifles mounted on movable shield binders. In UC 0096, several Ankshas were stationed aboard the air transport Garuda. Most were either damaged or destroyed in a battle with the Neo Zeon ship Garencieres. In UC 0097, two Ankshas served escort duty transporting Martha Vist Carbine through Colorado and came under surprise attack from four MSK-008 Dijehs belonging to Luio & Co.
