Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Apsalus II is a refitted version of the Apsalus I with a Mega Particle Cannon installed within it. Like the Apsalus I, it was operated by Aina Sahalin. The Mega Particle Cannon mounted on the Apsalus II was powerful enough to vitrify rock and sand and carve massive cylinders through stone.
- Mega Particle Cannon
- The Apsalus II has a particle cannon installed, giving it offensive capabilities unlike the previous Apsalus. It is capable of superheating earth and causing an explosion on impact.
- Minovsky Craft System Energy Pulse
- The output of the Minovsky craft system can be raised momentarily, and the shockwave generated at that time is used as an means of attack.
The Apsalus II engaged the members of the 08th Mobile Suit Team in a canyon in Southeast Asia. The Federation squad had been awaiting the weapon and set a trap. While the Apsalus II was able to escape the trap, Ensign Shiro Amada leapt aboard the Apsalus II in his RX-79(G) Gundam Ground Type and hung on. The Apsalus was forced to flee into the upper atmosphere once Aina realized it was Shiro who was clinging to the Apsalus.
The Apsalus soon descended somewhere in the mountains. However, equilibrium problems caused due to the use of a single generator as well as the weight of Shiro's Gundam caused the Mobile Armor to begin to roll to the side and descend at a dangerous rate. However, by removing the limiters to his RX-79(G) Gundam Ground Type, Shiro Amada was able to prevent the Apsalus from falling off of the side of the mountain.
Aina set the detonation device for the Apsalus and left to look for Shiro. When the Federation forces arrived and investigated the Apsalus, Aina activated the self-destruct from a safe distance, destroying the Apsalus II.
Aina and Shiro were later recovered by their respective forces.
