The RX-9/B Narrative Gundam B-Packs was a special equipment version of the RX-9 Narrative Gundam designed to capture the runaway RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex in UC 0097. Due to the Narrative Gundam lacking any armaments beyond basic vulcan guns, the rest of its weapons in that configuration were part of the B-Packs parts. The B-Packs added a new backpack that mounted a pair of incom-like wire-guided attack terminals that could transform into psycho capture units to neutralize the Phenex. Other B-Packs armaments included two beam sabers and two forearm-mounted small shields that each featured a 4-tube missile launcher. The Shezarr Unit tracked the Phenex to the interior of Side 6’s Metis Colony, where they unexpectedly came under attack from Republic of Zeon forces. To pilot Jona Basta’s surprise, the Narrative Gundam’s secret NT-D (Newtype Destroyer) System activated and took control of the suit. Feeding off Jona’s anger, the NT-D System summoned the nearby NZ-999 II Neo Zeong and docked the Narrative Gundam with the massive mobile armor. Jona’s rage subsided, but the amount of damage caused to the colony became a public relations nightmare for the Earth Federation Forces, which decided against further deployments for the Narrative Gundam. However, the combat situation later required it to be deployed as the RX-9/C Narrative Gundam C-Packs.
