Technical and Historical Notes

Following the apocalyptic end of the 7th Space War, the Space Revolutionary Army found itself lacking in military strength. It took several years before they returned to their previous fighting levels. The RMS-019 Crouda was the first mobile suit the S.R.A. mass produced after the war. This next generation mobile suit replaced aging models like the RMS-006 Jenice. Aside from being highly maneuverable, the Crouda’s armor was powerful enough to withstand a direct shot from a beam weapon. The Crouda carried fairly standard armament consisting of vulcan guns and beam rifles, but its main innovation was its beam cutter. Mounted on the back, this knife-like cutting weapon could cut mobile suits in half or slice into the hull of a battleship. The Crouda did, however, have one fatal design flaw: it could be destroyed by a direct shot to its front exhaust port. When hostilities began anew between the S.R.A. and New U.N.E., the Crouda proved highly effective against its New U.N.E. counterpart, the NRX-018-2 Daughtress Neo. A commander type variant of the Crouda was also produced, the RMS-019R Lancerow Dawell’s Crouda. Some standard type Croudas remained in service as late as A.W. 0024.
