Technical and Historical Notes

The RX-105 Ξ Gundam was a fifth generation mobile suit developed in UC 0105 by Anaheim Electronics for the anti-Federation military group Mafty. The Ξ Gundam was the sister unit to the Earth Federation Forces’ RX-104FF Penelope, but it included more advanced technology like built-in Minovsky Flight Units. These units, mounted on the shoulders, allowed the Ξ Gundam to utilize a Flight Form. Beam barriers generated in Flight Form allowed the Ξ Gundam to achieve supersonic flight with speeds of Mach 2. The Ξ Gundam’s armaments included a beam rifle, beam saber, a shield (with beam cannon) and 10 psycommu-guided funnel missiles. In April UC 0105, Hathaway Noa (aka Mafty Navue Erin) traveled to low Earth orbit to retrieve the Ξ Gundam from the Cargo Pisa. As the Ξ Gundam descended into Earth’s atmosphere, it engaged in a midair battle with Lane Aim’s Penelope. Hathaway used the Ξ Gundam’s funnel missiles to defeat the Penelope and escape the area.
