Technical and Historical Notes

The RGM-96Xs Jesta (Shezarr Type) was a special operations variant of the Earth Federation Forces’ RGM-96X Jesta. The six units of the Shezarr Type came in three versions, with all types working together on the mission of capturing the runaway RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex. Common to all three versions was a head-mounted scope sensor unit. The Team A version featured a high mobility backpack and could mount external propellant tanks. The Team B version was equipped with a mega beam launcher and tripod and rode on a Type 89 Base Jabber, while the Team C version was armed with a net-firing capture gun. In UC 0097, the Shezarr team, commanded by Iago Haakana, made contact with the Phenex in Side 4’s shoal zone. Their attack was interrupted by the arrival of Jona Basta’s RX-9 Narrative Gundam, which subsequently joined the Shezarr team in the secret Phoenix Hunt. The team later fought Republic of Zeon mobile suits in Side 6’s Metis Colony and attempted to stop the NZ-999 II Neo Zeong from destroying a large helium-3 supply base.
