Gundam UC: AMA-X7 Shamblo

The focus of the image below is not the ANA X Gundam USB Memory, but the image of the AMA-X7 Shamblo (on computer screen) that the staff at Sunrise is working on.
The AMA-X7 Shamblo will probably be the highlight in the upcoming episodes of Gundam UC.  I am really looking forward to seeing this monster mobile armor in action.  It was briefly mentioned in the recent "Inside Sunrise Video from ANN-TV) that the Shamblo will make it's debut in Gundam UC Episode 5, but I remain hopeful that we will see it (or see some parts of it) in the upcoming Episode 4.
The AMA-X7 Shamblo is an amphibious mobile armor developed by Garvey Enterprise (a company that deals with solar energy) with the technical support of the supporters of Neo Zeon. The machine combined use of three different propulsion systems (jet propulsion electromagnetic induction or MHD, and Minovsky thermonuclear jet hover craft) to ensure low noise and high mobility, both in water and on land. The Minovsky type generator(s) on its leg(s), hence by using the combination of submersible/hover system, it can archive low noise condition and high mobility. On ground, it can use together its Minovsky type generator and hover jet propulsion to demonstrate surprising agility that do not match its look. Shamblo can use the defensive properties created by its 10 reflective bits and scattering mega particle gun, which can render both solid ammo and beam attacks ineffective. Shamblo has a underwater cruiser mode. Due to its stealth, the Federation Navy called it the "Sea Ghost" or "Phantom of the Sea." In can be clearly seen that, when Zeon throw in the high propulsion, high firepower mobile weapon into the battlefield, their battle strategy is to use them to create a breakthrough in the front-line battle.
The AMA-X7 Shamblo is probably one of the anticipated Mobile Armor for the upcoming episodes of Gundam UC OVA.  Here is a brief history about this massive Mobile Armor:
"In May 1, 0096 U.C, the president of Garvey Enterprise Mahdi Garvey commanded his three children, Lonnie Garvey on the defense systems, Walid Garvey in communications, and Abbas Garvey as the pilot to attack the port of Dakar in Senegal assisted by a squadron of AMS-129M Zee Zulu mobile suits as escorts and begins its unstoppable rampage. The MSN-001A1 Delta Plus and RX-0 Unicorn Gundam were deployed to stop the Shamblo, however its defense systems prove impossible to penetrate. Lonnie Garvey, unable to deal with the carnage, climbs onto the Shamblo's bridge and puts an end to her fathers madness by shooting him to death. The Shamblo brought death and destruction for over two hours with the estimated death toll being around 40,000. "
