Technical and Historical Notes

The RX-9/C Narrative Gundam C-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 C-Packs parts. Psychoframe pieces were hastily mounted as armor across the Narrative Gundam’s body, giving it an appearance similar to the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam’s Destroy Mode and earning it the nickname “Psycho Package.” The C-Packs armaments included a pair of beam sabers, a modified beam rifle from the RGM-89 Jegan and a psychoframe-equipped shield that mounted a beam cannon and four missiles. The Narrative Gundam was deployed with the C-Packs equipment to stop Zoltan Akkanen’s NZ-999 II Neo Zeong from destroying a helium-3 storage base and causing massive devastation. Psycho waves emitted by the Phenex caused the Narrative Gundam’s psychoframe pieces to briefly change color from red to blue. The Narrative Gundam was destroyed piece-by-piece during the battle, but pilot Jona Basta ejected the Core Fighter and then transferred from it to the Phenex to stop Zoltan.
