XMS-00S Thielva The Thielva is an MS developed by the Madorna Workshop for the Earth Federation Forces’ X-Rounders. While the unit shares the same frame as the G-Bouncer, it has a distinctly different design than the former, which reflects its pilot. The back thrusters used by the G-Bouncers were replaced with newer weaponry called the T Bits, which are controlled remotely to take down enemies. #mecha – https://www.pinterest.com/pin/274930752235176581/
“In the old days an armada with so many cosmo fighters would have
been more than adequate for the task at hand, but cosmo fighters had
been designed for the radar age. Widespread use of Minovsky particles
had made radar ineffective, and rendered former former tactic obsolete.
Instead of hit–and-run attacks, true close-quarter combat had become
the norm. Even homing missiles were nearly useless.
As a result,
when the Principality of Zeon had first developed it’s Zaku model mobile
suit, it had gained an overwhelming advantage. The Earth Federation
Forces continued to manufacture and deploy cosmo fighters only because
they had no choice; they development and production of mobile suits had
lagged too far behind that of Zeon.”

“Floating in an area referred to as the Shoal Zone, LunaII
was heavily fortified by the Earth Federation Space Force since the
beginning of the war. Zeon cruiser-class warships rarely attempted to
enter the area, but that did not stop regular skirmishes between patrols
sent out by both sides.”

“Born somewhere in space in the decade UC 0060. There are numerous unknown factors regarding Astonaige Medoz’s birth, childhood, and family. Furthermore, there is no proof that his full name is authentic.
In January of UC 0079, the Principality of Zeon declared war on the Earth Federation, resulting in the outbreak of the One Year War. Astonaige studied under Dr. Mosk Han of the Earth Federation Force.
In order to gain an even greater number of skills, he was assigned to a space battleship for information analysis and Mobile Suit maintenance during the war.”
