MS-08TX/S Efreet Schneid 1/144 HG
The MS-08TX/S Efreet Schneid is a variant of the MS-08TX Efreet. It first appeared in OVA series Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. It also appeared in the Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link video game and the unit is piloted by Fred Reber.
The Efreet Schneid is a close-combat MS that forgoes the original Efreet's Heat Sword for a total of 14 kunai-like weapons called Heat Darts, stored throughout the whole body. These weapons can be thrown or hand held, and their blades are heated to cause more damage to enemy units. It also features a redesigned head with a more elongated profile and omits the original Efreet's head vulcans.
Over the long years after the One Year War in the care of the Zeon remnants, its has been repeatedly upgraded resulting in higher overall performance that matches or exceeds relatively newer suits like the RMS-179 GM II Semi-Striker. The Efreet Schneid has also been seen using a standard MS-09B Dom's 360mm Giant Bazooka among other weapons.
