The Ballistic Zaku was used against Allan Adams' Reversible Gundam to test the battle system's newly implemented automatic control mode, which used quasi-personality AIs based on pilots from various Gundam works to pilot instead of a Gunpla Fighter. It was piloted by a Char Aznable AI, who nearly defeated the Reversible Gundam, until the latter's controlling AI was replaced with an Amuro Ray AI, and the match subsequently ended in a draw.
