The AMEMBO is an unmanned mobile support craft featured in Mobile Suit Gundam AGE.
Technological & Combat Characteristics
The AMEMBO is designed as a support craft, used to deliver the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal and AGE-2 Gundam AGE-2 Normal's wear packs in battle. Because it's simply designed as a carrier for armament packs, it has no internal weapons equipped. The switching process varies slightly between the AGE-1 and AGE-2, the AGE-1 first docks into the AMEMBO and then discards it's current wear for it to swap its arms and limbs with its supporting wear. Another possible method is by jettisoning the current wear first and then docking to take on the new wear. The process for the AGE-2 is identical to the AGE-1's second method; the Gundam discards its current limbs and then docks to the AMEMBO to connect to the new wear pack. As the Gundam is left defensless while changing wears, allied suits must defend it.
