- Machine Cannon
Built at an unknown time by the People's Republic of Estard, the Estardoth was considered an old and weak mobile suit in AW 0015. In that year, when the New United Nations Earth started to conquer Earth, Estard was faced with not only a war with the superpower but also with their old enemy the Democratic Republic of Gastar. Being hopelessly outnumbered and outgunned, the government decided to surrender but General Lee Jackson refused to follow this. Together with nine ENG-002 Pyron units and with the Estardoth as his personal suit, Jackson decided to attack the overwhelming forces of the New UNE on his own. The battle lasted only a short time until only the damaged Estardoth was still standing. Having already decided that he would fight till the end, Jackson was able to destroy two DT-6800A Daughtress units, until his suit was destroyed by a barrage of machine gun fire coming from several other Daughtress units.
