A next generation mobile suit development of the Principality of Zeon’s MAN-08 Elmeth mobile armor, the AMX-004 Qubeley was designed and built by Axis Zeon military leader Haman Karn for her personal use. In addition to featuring a large set of wing binders on its shoulders to assist in AMBAC (Active Mass Balance AutoControl), it carried a pair of dual purpose beam guns/sabers for close combat and a tail binder containing a set of funnels (a smaller and cheaper version of the Elmeth’s bits). These small remote weapons, while still armed with a beam gun and thrusters for movement, were powered by an energy cap system which required recharging aboard the Qubeley after a certain amount of time. Controlled by a Newtype pilot’s thoughts via the psycommu system, the funnels turned the Qubeley into a truly deadly unit, capable of attacking enemies from beyond visual range. The Qubeley remained Haman’s personal mobile suit throughout the Gryps War and the First Neo Zeon War, with its design serving as the basis for the later AMX-004G Qubeley Mass Production Type. At the conclusion of the First Neo Zeon War in early UC 0089, Haman was defeated in battle by AEUG pilot Judau Ashta’s MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam. However, rather than accept defeat, she instead opted to kill herself, bringing an end to the first of several Neo Zeon movements.

Beam Gun/Saber

Stored in the Qubeley’s forearms is a set of dual purpose beam gun/beam sabers. When used as a beam gun, the weapons remain mounted in the forearms. When used as a beam saber, the weapons are hand-carried.


The Qubeley stores 10 funnels in a funnel container located in its movable rear armor. These funnels are technological descendants of the Elmeth’s remote-controlled bits. The funnels are smaller than the bits as they lack their own power generators, instead they are powered using energy capacitors. This allows the funnels to be small enough so that a large number of them can be stored on a mobile suit, but they have to return to the mobile suit for recharging after operating for a certain amount of time.
