The SPT-LZ-00X Layzner was an experimental super powered tracer that changed the fate of both Grados and Earth. Layzner’s armaments were standard fare for a Gradosian SPT: a lasered rifle, knuckle shots and a pair of calf missiles. However, Layzner’s unassuming exterior hid multiple secrets. Layzner was equipped with an advanced AI nicknamed Rei, but it also featured a hidden AI named Folon. Tasked with holding the secret of Grados’ origin, Folon took control when Layzner was threatened with destruction. When faced with overwhelming enemy numbers, Folon could activate the high performance V-MAX system. When V-MAX was engaged, all of Layzner’s energy was released to create a blue magnetic barrier. This barrier allowed Layzner to move at high speeds and made it invulnerable to weapons fire. Once the threat was removed, Layzner was temporarily immobilized while excess heat was vented through outer ports.

On October 3, 1996, Earth/Grados half-breed Albatro Nal Eiji Asuka stole Layzner to warn Earth of the impending Gradosian invasion. When a battle broke out on Mars, Eiji rescued a group of Earth students visiting a United Nations base. Together, the group made the long journey back to Earth to warn the world powers. However, Layzner and Earth’s forces both proved unable to prevent the devastation of the ozone layer and the occupation of the planet. After disappearing for three years, Eiji emerged in New York City in 1999 to reunite with his friends. Layzner was later heavily damaged in a battle with Le Cain’s SPT-ZK-53U Zakaal, which also used V-MAX. As a result, Rei and Folon were transferred to a new Earth-built SPT, the E-SPT-LZ-00X-B New Layzner.
