Technology & Combat Characteristics
An improved development over the original MRX-010 Psyco Gundam Mk-II, the Psyco Gundam Mk-III was very similar to its predecessor, equipped with a psycommu and psyco-control chair to allow its Newtype or genetically-engineered "Cyber Newtype" pilot to control this massive mobile weapon system with mere thoughts. Though as the MRX-010's descendant, the MRX-012 has considerably more advanced technology, specifically in the area of energy efficiency as the MRX-010 mounts a greater number of weapons that have greater power ratings, despite having a fusion reactor that only produces little over half of what the Mobile Armor was capable of.
Instead of mounting detachable remote controlled beam weaponry, the Psyco Gundam Mk-III focuses more on size and long ranged combat. The Psyco Gundam Mk-III is outfitted with multiple mega beam guns mounted on various parts of its body that draw energy from the mobile weapon's fusion reactor and have a power rating of 6.3 MW each. This is capable of taking down an enemy ship with one blow. The unit is also equipped with a Beam Sword for close combat. The unit bears features of both original machines (e.g. the original's traditional-looking head and face with signature V-fin antenna, and the Mk-II's limb- and leg-mounted weaponry) along with wholly unique ones.
