The RX-121-2A Gundam TR-1 [Advanced Hazel] was the remodeled RX-121-2 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel II], with leg enhancement parts and a multi weapon latch installed to match its specifications to those of the RX-121-1 Gundam TR-1 Hazel Custom. A high performance optical sensor unit like that of the RGM-79SR GM Sniper III was added to its head, and supplemental thruster units to the soles of its feet. The movable booster pod on its enhancement backpack was also replaced with a new type, tested on the RMS-117 Galbaldy β, which could be fitted with two shield boosters to increase its performance still further. The enhanced shield booster had 10 diffuse beam guns installed on its surface, which increased the mobile suit’s defensive capabilities by shooting down missiles and other projectile weapons. However, the shield booster’s propellant capacity was reduced accordingly, giving it lower performance as a booster. All the test results of previous option parts were used in the creation of the Advanced Hazel, which could be considered the current “completed form” of the Hazel. Testing of the new booster pod with two shield boosters was originally meant to be conducted with the RMS-117 Galbaldy β with High Mobility Unit. However, this Galbaldy β was lost when Maxim Gunar defected to the AEUG. The tests were thus performed with the Hazel II, and their results were reflected in the Advanced Hazel. The new booster pod lacked the generator and thruster equipment of the previous version, and consisted of little more than latches for the shield boosters and an optional propellant tank, acting as a multi-connector pod. Meanwhile, the sub-arm unit was also adopted due to the good results of its testing with the Hazel Custom.
