Late in the Eve Wars of AC 195, the Romefeller Foundation began development on a new series of mass production Gundams to revive their failing fortunes. Inspired by the XXXG-01H2 Gundam Heavyarms Custom, they produced a heavy assault Gundam dubbed Derringer Arms, named for the pocket pistol invented in the 19th century. As its name implied, Derringer Arms was intended to function in a smaller area, specifically to act as a guard for bases or cities. As a result, it lacked the famous Gundam blade antenna, shortening its radar range. Its main arsenal consisted of a handheld double beam Gatling, chest-mounted Gatling guns, homing missiles and micromissiles, but much fewer than its inspiration. This was because it was always intended to operate near a location where it could be resupplied quickly. With the end of the Eve Wars, the produced Derringer Arms units were never used. However, the following month, one unit was stolen by Trinoi Levinski, a former member of OZ’s space force who was forced to retire after sustaining injuries to his left arm. Along with his friends Tiel and Krung, Trinoi went to the Graveyard of Soldiers in an attempt to locate Tiel’s missing brother.
