Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Elegolea was armed with a single beam cannon, which was mounted in the tail stabilizer of the unit. This stabilizer could also be used for melee attacks. Another set of three mega particle cannons were mounted inside the front nose-like part of the mobile armor. As with the tail stabilizer, the nose could be used for close combat. Lastly, the Elegolea was capable of using one of the giant heat naginatas carried by the Dionas.
However, the Elegolea's most distinctive feature was it's Organic Computer Control System, which allows to mobile armor to be remotely controlled without having an actual pilot inside it.

Special Equipment & Features
- Organic Computer Control System
- Despite having a cockpit, the real control system for the Elegolea was the Organic Computer Control System. With this system, Crux Dogatie can control the Elegolea remotely.
One of several prototype mobile armors created by the Jupiter Empire, the Elegolea was used only once by the Empire during the large battle between the Earth Federation Forces, the Jupiter Empire and the Crossbone Vanguard. In a publicity stunt, the armor was piloted by Crux Dogatie's daughter Bernadette Briett, although in truth one of Dogatie's clone pods controlled the MA. This was possible thanks to an organic computer control system, for which the Elegolea served as a test unit. The system would later be used in the limited mass-produced mobile armor EMA-10 Divinidad.
Accompanied by a squadron of Dionas, the Elegolea went into battle only to be faced by Tobia Arronax in his newly acquired XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X-3. Despite not being used to his new machine, Tobia was able to destroy several Dionas until Dogatie attacked him with the Elegolea. This put Tobia into a bad situation, as he was in danger of killing Bernadette if he would attack the MA. This forced him to fight defensly, allowing Dogatie to gain the upper hand and nearly stunning Tobia with a ramming attack of the Elegolea's nose. He afterwards took the Muramasa blaster of the X-3 to kill Tobia, but the youth was able to stop the attack with the I-field of the X-3. He then rammed the Muramasa blaster into the MA, critically damaging it and allowing Tobia to rip out the cockpit capsule containing Bernadette. Dogatie tried to attack the X-3 one last time but Tobia finally destroyed the Elegolea with the Muramasa blaster.
