The MKV-9052 ASO Gundam is a Close-Quarters Combat Mobile Suit manufactured by Celestial Being, it is piloted by Ash Kennedy and later by Saji Crossroad, as Ash switches to the titular Emerald Gundam. The unit was heavily damaged in Chapter 24, but later destroyed in Chapter 3 of Emerald Chronicles E2. A repaired version of it appears in Chapter 25 of the anime.
The ASO Gundam was succeeded by the MKV-9152 ASO Gundam Mk-II in the second season of Emerald Chronicles E2.
The ASO Gundam previously used the Psycommu System, a device that is able to directly interpret the user's thoughts by picking up their brainwaves. He added it to fit with his Newtype/Innovator hybrid abilities. It was removed from it after Saji became its pilot, and replaced with the Trident System.
It can also use the Trans-Am System, an inherent feature of both the GN Drive and GN Drive Tau that temporarily increases their GN Particle output beyond normal parameters for greatly enhanced combat performance.
