The RMS-141 Xeku Eins was a general purpose mass production mobile suit developed at Pezun, an asteroid base which once belonged to the Principality of Zeon. After the end of the One Year War, mobile suit research continued at Pezun under the supervision of the Earth Federation Forces. In UC 0085, the EFF established an instructor corps at Pezun to develop new mobile suit tactics and piloting techniques, providing an additional source of development data. The end result of this research was the RMS-141 Xeku Eins, the first machine in an experimental “X series.” The design of the Xeku Eins was based on reliable, proven technology, and despite its good overall performance the mobile suit itself had few distinguishing features. However, its sturdy frame and high generator output allowed it to carry a large weapons payload, and the multipurpose latch and mount system built into its shoulders allowed the Xeku Eins to carry a wide variety of optional equipment. As a result, this general purpose mobile suit could reproduce the abilities of many different specialized machines. The capabilities of the Xeku Eins were highly regarded by the pilots of the instructor corps, and with the outbreak of the Pezun Rebellion it became the main mobile suit of the New Desides. This Type 1 armament represented the most basic configuration of the Xeku Eins. Its main weapon was a beam rifle with an attached grenade launcher, and the movable frame mounted on its shoulders were used for landing devices and propellant tanks. This configuration was used by the pilots of the New Desides when they landed their mobile suits on the lunar surface on March 13, UC 0088.
