The Sri Lankan government had fallen apart because of 300 years of civil war between the Tamil Tigers and the Sinhalese majority. Celestial Being deployed several Mobile Suits to stop the 300 year long war.
Gundams Exia, Dynames, Kyrios, and Virtue are sent to the old Sri Lanka to intervene between the three-century-old dispute between the Sinhalese and the Tamils (the Tamils being supported by the Human Reform League).
- Exia and Dynames directly attacked the mobile suits of both factions engaged in battle.
- Kyrios bombarded the Human Reform League's base camp.
- Virtue sunk a large cruiser.
The three major powers learned of the Gundam's ability for atmospheric re-entry. Graham Aker of the Union's MSWAD engaged Exia in a Flag and obtained some rudimentary benchmark data on Exia's performance, which leads to his transfer to the Union's "Gundam Investigation Team". The Human Reform League confirmed that Celestial Being developed their weaponry independently.
