The RX-160S Byarlant Custom is a variant of the RX-160 Byarlant. It first appeared in the Novel/OVA series Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. It is piloted by Robin Diez.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

After the Gryps Conflict of UC 0087, the Earth Federation reclaimed the data of the RX-160 Byarlant as it was the only non-transformable mobile suit with sustained atmospheric flight ability. However this never happened until UC 0096, where the mobile suit researchers refurbished said mobile suit into the RX-160S Byarlant Custom. The Byarlant Custom possesses enhanced speed, agility, and self-sustained atmospheric flight over the original. All these were achieved through the use of enhanced thruster units all over its body and two new back-mounted thrusters, which also contain large-capacity fuel tanks.

Other changes to the suit include arm parts taken from RX-110 Gabthley, a new foot design derived from the NRX-055 Baund Doc and the replacement of the mono-eye sensor with EFF standard compound type sensors. Two Byarlant Custom units were produced at Torrington Base, with Unit 1 being a validation unit for the enhanced thrusters and various modifications; as such it does not fix the Byarlant's flaw of limited armaments. Development staff have referred to the project as a composite "creature" (Chimera) of Titans mobile suits.


  • Mega Particle Cannon
A fixed armament mounted on each forearm, they are the suit's only range weapon and their power are rated at 4.7 MW. By adjusting the relevant parameters/settings of the particle cannons (such as its output), the weapon can have a variety of firing modes, including a beam machine gun-like mode that have a high rate of fire at the expense of penetrating power.
  • Beam Saber
Unlike the original Byarlant, the Byarlant Custom's beam sabers are not stored in arm recharge racks. Instead the beam sabers are generated from the Mega Particle Cannons.
  • Claw Arm
While the original Byarlant has small claws for manipulators, the Byarlant Custom is equipped with two claw arms from Gabthley for improved melee combat capability. However, they are even more unsuitable for wielding weapons.

Special Equipment and Features

  • Propellant Tank/Thruster Units
As the name suggests, the propellant tank/thruster unit is a combination of large MS-use fuel tank with rocket-propelled thruster units attached at the end. It provides additional fuel for longer deployment times and greatly enhances Byalant Custom's acceleration and agility during aerial combats. A pair of propellant tank/thruster units are equipped on both sides of Byalant Custom's original built-in back thrusters.


The Assault of Torrington Base

The Byarlant Custom was first deployed against the Zeon remnants during the assault of Torrington Base. Although Unit 1 was launched during the attack, Unit 2 was grounded due to a start-up error. During its first deployment the Byarlant Custom Unit 1 destroyed multiple Zeon remnant mobile suits, including two AMS-129M Zee Zulu. The Byarlant Custom pushed back the Zeon remnant forces with the help of Londo Bell's Tri-Stars mobile suit team and other Earth Federation forces.
