Technology & Combat Characteristics
- Beam Launcher/Saber
- The standard weapons of the Qubeley is a set of duel purpose beam launchers/sabers that are stored in the forearms. When used as beam launchers the weapons remain mounted in the forearms, but when used as beam sabers they are hand carried.
- The Qubeley keeps 10 funnels stored in a tail binder. These funnels are technological descendants of the Elmeth's remote bit weapons. The funnels are smaller than the bits as they lack their own power generators, instead using energy capacitors. This allows the funnels to be small enough so that a large number of them can be stored on a mobile suit but requires that the funnels return to the tail binder for recharging after a certain amount of time.
- MAN stands for Mobile Armor Newtype (despite this, the unit is classified as mobile suit)
- Qubeley's name is derived from the Greek goddess "Cybele". Cybele embodies the fertile Earth, a goddess of caverns and mountains, walls and fortresses, nature, wild animals (especially lions and bees). Phrygian Cybele is often identified with the Hittite-Hurrian goddess Hebat, though this latter deity might have been the origin of only Anatolian Kubaba. The Greeks frequently conflated the two names, the Anatolian "Kubaba" and the Phrygian "Kybele", to refer to the Phrygian deity.
