As theýýOne Year Warýýraged on, theýýEarth Federation Forcesýýrealized that its greatest weapon, theýýRX-78-2 Gundam, had a major flaw with how it was working: its pilot. As Gundam pilotýýAmuro Ray'sýýNewtypeýýpowers quickly emerged, the Gundam was overworked by its pilot's great reflexes. To improve Gundam's performance, the Federation set out to develop a brand new prototype, the RX-78NT-1 Gundam "Alex", to make the most of Amuro's Newtype abilities.

Unlike the Newtype Mobile Armors fielded by Zeon, the NT-1 didn't utilize wired pods or bits. Due to the fact that the Federation did not have the same Newtype research that Zeon did and wouldn't have it until the end of the One Year War. Instead was developed to be much more responsive to its pilot, utilizing the Magnetic Coating pioneered by theýýRX-78-3 "G-3" Gundamýýand the brand new Panoramic monitor. Test pilotýýChristina MacKenzieýýnoted that the machine was incredibly powerful, almost to the point that it was out of control.

Additionally, the Gundam Alex can be outfitted with a brand new set of optional armor known as the Chobam Armor, transforming it into the Full Armor Alex. However, the use of the armor increase the Gundam's total weight to a shocking 95 tons, effectively killing the speed the Alex was meant to have.
