The PMX-003 The O II (aka "Hauer" or "Neo Geo") is a variant of the PMX-003 The O and appears in Mobile Suit Gundam: The Revival of Zeon manga. It was designed and illustrated by Kazuhisa Kondo and Makoto Kobayashi.
Technology & Characteristics
During the development of the original PMX-003, a group of former Zeon engineers taking part in the project saw the potential of the design and secretly drew up plans of a siege mobile suit based on the The O by equipping it with more heavy weaponry. It was planned as a type of armed land-fortress, with a single unit capable of handling an entire assault on enemy territory thanks to its heavy weapons and armor. The O II was fitted with an array of offensive weaponry, including a pair of beam guns in the chest turret, a pair of machine cannons in the clavicle area, a pair of beam saber-wielding sub-arm units in the front skirts, missile launchers on the backpack and a large 120mm machine gun. It's main mode of transport were twelve high-powered hover units positioned on its legs and underskirt, giving The O II considerable mobility on land, and because of these modifications, The O II was significantly larger than the original The O. However, it was extremely costly and difficult to manufacture, so production was halted with only a small number of units and variants. This marked change in appearance being identified by a change of name to "Hauer".

The "Hauer" was known to have been deployed in U.C. 0092 on Earth, where it was piloted by Zeon captain Frederick F. Brown in an attempt to fend off an Earth Federation attack on a Zeon base in Scandinavia, where he faced off against the SSMS-010ZZ Double Zeta "Siegfried".
