The RX-160 Byarlant is a prototype high-mobility mobile suit from the anime series Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. The unit is piloted by Jerid Messa.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RX-160 Byarlant is a mobile suit designed to possess speed, agility, and self-sustained atmospheric flight without the use of a complicated and costly external support system or a mobile armor transformation system. The Byarlant's capabilities were achieved through the incorporation of powerful thrusters in its shoulders and waist, with a large-capacity fuel tank in its torso to keep the thrusters fueled.

However while its mobility was clearly well thought out, its offensive systems were lacking. Because of the design of the Byarlant's hands the Byarlant could not wield the mass-produced weapons employed by other mobile suits, limiting it to its own pair of beam sabers and the mega particle guns in its hands.

Armaments

  • Beam Saber
For close-combat, the Byarlant has a pair of beam sabers that are stored in the recharge racks of the arms, it wields then during battle.
  • Mega Particle Gun
A fixed armament mounted on Byarlant's forearms, it works as the only range weapons the mobile suit has, the power is rated at 4.7MW.

History

The RX-160 Byarlant was designed by the Titans during the Gryps Conflict of UC 0087. As with most of the Titans' new designs the Byarlant was an experimental mobile suit with only a single unit being constructed. The one unit built was piloted by Jerid Messa, a rising star in the Titans organization who was called upon to pilot many new mobile suit models, and seized the incomplete Byarlant as his new personal mobile suit during the skirmish at Mount Kilimanjaro. Jerid would use the Byarlant to battle members of the AEUG, specifically his rival, the AEUG's Gundam pilot Kamille Bidan. Despite its impressive performance, the Byarlant would be defeated and Jerid would move on to other more powerful machines.

In the year UC 0096, nine years after the Gryps Conflict, the Earth Federation Forces would modify the remaining Byarlant units into the RX-160S Byalant Custom, which possessed superior mobility.
