Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Butler's cockpit was located in its head, and it was controlled with a steering wheel like a standard automobile. The Butler could be equipped with a fencing saber, which Raymond used in practice matches to train his master, George de Sand. It's fairly old fashioned, but it's athletic, and it's possible to grab a flying missile despite the steering wheel, and Raymond's season-old maneuvers have shown the mobility comparable to the Gundam Rose.
The Butler Bensouman is one of the few mobile suits in the Future Century that is not a Gundam Fighter, piloted by Raymond Bishop, butler to Neo France's de Sand family. The Butler was damaged from a missile attack by Jean-Pierre Mirabeau's Mirage Gundam in the Guyana Highlands, but it was eventually repaired. It is then used to recover Dr. Raizo Kasshu's capsule, which was released outside the Neo-Japan colony by Dr. Mikamura.
- In Super Robot Wars J, Butler Bensouman is the name of George De Sand's initial ultimate attack. In it he summons Raymond in the Butler Bensouman, who clumsily performs an attack together with him, but while George ellegantly thrusts Raymond largely flails his mech's arms in wide arcs while flanking the opponent in order to more thoroughly damage them.
