Technology & Combat Characteristics
As the Earth Federation Forces' Titans force continues to build up its military and political power in its crusade to rule the Earth Sphere with an iron fist, one area of research actively pursued by the Titans is "cyber Newtypes" - artificially-engineered Newtypes who can operate revolutionary new Newtype-controlled weapons. At their Murasame Research Institute in Japan, the Titans built the Federation's first prototype Newtype-use unit, the MRX-007 Prototype Psyco Gundam. Equipped with a psycommu ("psychic communicator") system similar to that developed by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War (hence the name "Psyco," which is short for "psycommu"), the Prototype Psyco Gundam's tremendous beam weapon firepower can be controlled by the pilot's mere thoughts. Based on the frame of the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II, the Murasame lab's goal is to create "the strongest Gundam." However, because of technological limitations the enormous psycommu system is installed in the unit's backpack. The Murasame lab refines the prototype, resulting in the creation of the MRX-008 Prototype Psyco Gundam, MRX-009 Psyco Gundam, MRX-010 Psyco Gundam Mk-II and MRX-011 Mass Production Type Psyco Gundam.
