Technology and Combat Characteristics
The MSA-004 Nemo II is a prototype mobile suit that is based off the Anti Earth Union Group's successful MSA-003 Nemo. The new Nemo II internal frame and external armor is based off the MSA-003 Nemo but incorporates minor modifications to improve performance. Technologically the Nemo II features a superior sensor range, an improved thruster assembly allowing it to hold more fuel and achieve greater thrust, and incorporates a more powerful Minovsky ultracompact fusion reactor.
Though technologically powerful the purpose of the MSA-004 Nemo II is to serve as a testbed for the even more powerful MSA-004K Nemo III.

In the year UC 0087 the Gryps Conflict initiated between the Anti Earth Union Group and the Earth Federation's Titans special forces. During the Conflict military contractor Anaheim Electronics supplied the AEUG with the MSA-003 Nemo mobile suit to replace the aging RMS-179/RGM-79R GM II mobile suits that had served as their mainstay mobile suit force. The MSA-003 Nemo would prove to be a powerful mobile suit that surpassed the Earth Federation's GM II, RMS-106 Hizack, and RMS-117 Galbaldy Beta mobile suits. While the Nemo managed to compete on equal footing with the RMS-108 Marasai, the Titans however would continually field more advanced prototype machines that far surpassed and devastated the AEUG's mobile suit forces.
There was a need for the AEUG to be supplied with more powerful mobile suits, so Anaheim Electronics took their MSA-003 Nemo design back to the drawing board and sought to improve it. The first new design was the MSA-004 Nemo II, a general purpose mobile suit much like the original Nemo but possessing superior performance. However despite its excellent performance it was decided that the Nemo II was not powerful enough, and was instead used to develop the even more powerful MSA-004K Nemo III.
