As the war on Earth continued in CC 2345, several factions of the Moonrace on the Moon were displeased by Queen Dianna Soriel’s actions. To stir up discord among her soldiers, cryogenically-frozen criminal Corin Nander was released and sent to Earth in the TAF-M9 Eagail along with his wingmen Bruno and Jacop with their NRS-P701 Gozzo suits. In an encounter with Loran Cehack’s System-∀99 ∀ Gundam, Corin was the first to identify it as a Gundam. The Eagail possessed the ability to transform into a dinosaur-like running mode for high speed movement. The flexible spine it employed allowed the Eagail to extend its head for pouncing attacks. Its main armament consisted of an electrically powered Minchi drill, and Corin used it effectively in combat. Other armaments included an optional beam rifle. The Eagail was destroyed in a volcano during an underground duel between Corin and the Turn A. Only the Minchi drill survived the battle and was used briefly by the Turn A and presumably later by Corin’s custom AMX-109 Kapool.
