Technology & Combat Characteristics
The second mobile suit built by Paptimus Scirocco aboard the Jupitris during the Gryps Conflict, the Palace Athene was a mobile suit built for offense. Though normally armed with four beam cannons in its torso and claws on its feet, it could also be outfitted with a heavy 2-barrel beam rifle, eight battleship-grade long-range missiles, and a shield mounting several small missile launchers. Although equipping the extra equipment gave the Palace Athene the firepower equivalent of a large mobile armor or space battleship, its bulk and size did cause it to suffer a lack of good speed and maneuverability.

Just like many of Scirocco's mobile suits, only one Palace Athene was built, and it was assigned to former AEUG pilot-turned-Scirocco supporter Reccoa Londe, who piloted it from the Battle of the Gate of Zedan to the unit's destruction at the Battle of Gryps.
Notes & Trivia
- The "Palace Athene" is named for "Athena" (sometimes known as "Pallas Athena"), the Greek goddess of Warfare.
- In Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2, it is very powerful against numerous enemies, due to it's overwhelming firepower.
