Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Casshing is an unmanned mobile suit privately manufactured to support Neo England's GF Gentle Chapman, who by the time of the thirteenth Gundam Tournament had begun to physically break down due to a combination of combat fatigue and stimulant abuse. The units are designed to look similar (from a distance) to the GF13-003NEL John Bull Gundam. Chapman's wife, Manon Chapman, remotely controls it with a control system in the basement of her home. The unit is armed with nothing other than a high-output beam rifle, and only superficially resembles a Gundam.

Unlike other mobile suits, such as Neo Japan's JMS71 Nobusshi used outside the Gundam fight, the Casshing is illegally used during the Gundam Fight to wear down opponents so that Gentle Chapman could finish them off with one blow. Acting in secret, Manon Chapman used these units to support her husband, in conjunction with using artificially-produced fog to give him an unfair advantage against opponents. However, this trick was discovered by George de Sand, who revealed the deception to Neo-Japan's Domon Kasshu during his duel with Chapman. Following Chapman's defeat, as well as the revelation he had been aware of the Casshings the entire time, all the units were subsequently destroyed.
