Derived from the basic XM-01 Den’an-Zon, the XM-03 Ebirhu-S was the smallest mobile suit built by the Crossbone Vanguard. Designed specifically for reconnaissance missions, the Ebirhu-S was equipped with an extra bank of advanced sensor and camera systems in its left shoulder. Unlike most other Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits, the Ebirhu-S was not equipped with a beam shield, as its operation interfered with the reception of the sensitive sensor systems. The Ebirhu-S was also quite heavily armed for a recon unit, mounting a shot lancer, four machine guns, a grenade rack, a hand-carried beam spray gun, and a 4-fingered shot claw, which could be launched like a projectile at a target. To aid in its reconnaissance role, the Ebirhu-S also carried a remote reconnaissance pod equipped with additional sensors. This pod could either be directly remote-controlled or, in the case of Minovsky particle interference, be pre-programmed to operate on its own. In case the recon pod encountered resistance, it was also armed with weapons for automated self-defense.
