Technical and Historical Notes

The RMS-014 Octape was the last mobile suit that the Space Revolutionary Army mass produced during the 7th Space War. This high performance mobile suit came with a bevy of armaments that outclassed previous S.R.A. models, as well as the United Nations Earth’s mass produced DT-6800A Daughtress. The Octape mounted two 50mm Gatling cannons in its torso, and other standard armaments included a beam saber. The Octape had several options for handheld weaponry, including a giant bazooka, a 100mm machine gun and a beam rifle. As was the case with other models, many Octape units survived the war and fell into the hands of civilians and Vultures. Also, the S.R.A. continued to use the Octape as late as A.W. 0015 because it was so dependable. The S.R.A. used many Octapes in the defense of a spaceport captured from the New United Nations Earth. In battle, the Octapes even held up well against the New U.N.E.’s new mass produced NR-001 Balient mobile suits.
