Technology & Combat Characteristics
The MS-08TX/N Efreet Nacht is equipped with a jamming system which causes any detectors, radar, thermal sensing devices within an area of five square kilometers around it to malfunction. The Zeon Earth Attack Force increased the armor of the Efreet Nacht to make sure there is no interference with the signal and equipped it with a high power signal generator. Purple coloring is also used as a night camouflage.
- Cold Kunai
- These kunai are used, like the MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom's heat wire, to short an enemy unit's electrical systems. They have to be returned to their storage rack to recharge after each use. The suit has four cold kunai, two stored on the legs and two on the side skirt armor.
- 3-barrel Gatling Gun
- Built into the Efreet Nacht's left arm armor.
- Cold Blade
- Shaped like a katana, the Cold Blade is designed to short out an enemy unit's electrical systems like the Cold Kunai, but it has better endurance. The weapon is stored on the suit's back when not in use.
- MMP-80/90mm Ver.8 Machine Gun
- An alternative to the 120mm Machine Gun. It used 90mm bullets instead of 120mm type, allowing for a greater firing speed and better penetration capabilities. The machine gun is magazine-fed with 32 rounds per mag with extra magazines stored on the waist armor.
Much like the Gouf, the Efreet was a high-performance close combat ground mobile suit created by the Zeon Earth Attack Force. However, the Efreet had an incredibly short production run. In the end only eight Efreets would be built during the One Year War before production would be halted in favor of newer and more revolutionary designs like the Dom. All eight Efreets was sent to Odessa where they would be tested for further development. One of the Efreets was developed into the MS-08TX/N Efreet Nacht, but any further development on the mobile suit was halted when the Earth Federation Forces launched a battle on Odessa. After the battle, the Earth Federation Forces captured the Efreet Nacht. In 0081 U.C., the Principality of Zeon's Invisible Knight squad member Erik Blanke re-captured the Efreet Nacht and immediately engaged in battle against the Earth Federation's Phantom Sweep team.
