Technical and Historical Notes

Like the RX-78NT-1 Gundam NT-1 Alex developed during the One Year War, the RX-121 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel] was designed to use a Full Armor system. The Hazel was based on the RGM-79Q GM Quel, with enhancement parts added to each section to give it the high performance of a Gundam-type mobile suit. Of these enhancement parts, the “white parts” of the backpack, rear skirt armor, and leg sections were fixed in place, and only the armor on the front of its torso constituted a detachable Full Armor system. When this detachable bulletproof armor was installed on the front of its torso, the armor damaged in battle could be easily replaced, which was an advantage in terms of maintenance. However, since the extra armor also increased the machine’s weight, it had the drawback of impairing the Hazel’s maneuverability.
