Hobby Japan July 2008
Alejandro invited Ms. Deborah to a secret establishment, requesting her to be the test pilot of the Throne Varanus. As a matter of fact, Alejandro himself was a member of CB, but for the purpose of his own righteousness in betraying the organization, he acknowledged the preparation of opposing machines like the Throne Varanus.
One day when Ms. Deborah was testing, she heard his private secretary Ribbons say, "Alejandro is aiming for the world. Do you plan to be used like this?" And soon enough...

When the work Ms. Deborah, Robert and others were completely finished, there was the worst possibility that Alejandro would dispose of them. In fear, Robert and Deborah escaped, making use of the Union Flag Orbit Package Colony Guard from the Orbital Elevator. The two people, trying to go to the Lagrange 1's Union Space Colony, didn't know neither that CB is hiding in Lagrange 1's Asteroid Area, nor that a large battle will occur.

The data by Amy was used as part of 00's development data.
Incidentally, Amy heard about Colasour's second name "The Immortal Colasour", and thought that he surely is a great pilot. He acknowledged his superiority (in a rival kind of way).

This month is about Tieren Zhizhu.
This is an MS that was used for the defense of the Orbital Elevator after the inauguration of the Earth Federation. It kept being used, while the Federal Army shifted to an MS that is equipped with the solar furnace. The machine is stabilized by moving in the Orbital Elevator's Carbon Rail, and in addition, because it continues to receive infinite power, it is equipped with high-power linear canons.
Details about Amy Zimbalist was also written. Those who view him as a great man call him "The Steel Cowboy", but those who hate him call him the "The Devil of the United World". What is the result in being raised as a girl in childhood? He is flirty towards girls, and leaves many scandalous stories about them.

Amy Zimbalist boards the Advanced Jinx and arrived at the base where the asteroid was destroyed, and intercepts the Cherudim that trespassed the base.
Because Amy can't control his machine that has a special characteristic of changing its appearance in narrow passageways, Amy waited for the Cherudim outside the base. Amy attacks Cherudim that is in front of him. Then only after a few shots from its rifle, it immediately silenced. He thought that it was his chance, but after trying to attack, before he knew it, Cherudim's hand grasped a new gun. And then it did so many times. "That's cheating! How much darn equipment does that have!" Amy then soon had reached his pseudo-solar furnace action time limit, and Cherudim then quietly left.

Amy did not think that his fellow passenger might not be a female. It was said that he would not return until he finds the secret CB base, but gradually, the limit of his machine started to be reached. At that time, his sensors detected the weak heat source of an asteroid. After Amy saw the warning, he used all of his remaining particles to move and bombard the asteroid with his GN Beam Canon.

He came to this absolutely secret establishment with the pretext of assisting in development. He personally tampered with the data for simulation of Ascalon, and removed almost all of the armaments except for the container.

Hobby Japan September 2009
Seravee is a GN heavy weapons type. It comes with Seraphim, and 2 unmanned Seraphims called “Sem” for the expansion of the Trial System to a wider area, and from which Veda-linked machines with solar furnaces are rendered useless. Along with Seravee, the 2 Sems are communicated to using quantum signals from Seraphim, and this remote control interaction range is theoretically infinite. On the other hand, there is a limit to the area that the Trial System can expand to. Nevertheless, an area of a hundred kilometers can be covered, and the whole battlefield can be covered completely.
Though the development was sped up as a trump card to the enemy Innovators, manufacturing the 2 Sems was difficult, and as the current status is that its meister, Tieria, has not regained the link to Veda, the Sems are only a luggage to Seravee, and there was anxiety of being shot down before Veda was recaptured.
Because of this, Seravee sortied in the final battle with GNHW/B, which was the second plan.
Drama Part: GNX-612T/AA Superbia Jinx
Hiling Care’s Story
Hiling, who sortied in the Superbia Jinx for the CN’s base destruction mission reminisces about Amy Zimbalist, who reported as a substitute for duty. Amy said that Hiling is “cute”. She is a battle type who has no sexual distinction, but because there is an inconvenience in the human society, each of them pretends to be either male or female. Hiling pretended to be a female. She had no bad feelings when called “cute”.
Furthermore, Deborah’s Advanced Jinx story is also published.
The new and old models were conducted to a similar mission, and they did comparison tests between them. Deborah refused the test manager’s suggestion that she should board the Jinx III and goes on the Advanced Jinx. Amy, who for some reason disliked Deborah, also boarded an Advanced Jinx. After the two people clear their cooperation mission, the scientists who were shown the good record which was better the new model were put in a state of confusion.
