List of minor Gundam Wing mobile suits


List of minor Gundam Wing mobile suits

The following is a list of fictional mobile suits that appear in the "Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" anime and associated works (the collective of which is known as the "After Colony Era").

The OZ-14MS Gundam Aquarius is a Gundam mobile suit appearing only in the "SD Gundam G Generation" video game "SD Gundam: G Generation F".cite web |url=http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/ggf/oz-14ms.htm |title=OZ-14MS Gundam Aquarius |accessdate=2007-03-07 |author= |authorlink= |coauthors= |date= |year= |month= |format= |work=Mecha Anime HQ |publisher= |pages= |language= |archiveurl= |archivedate= |quote= ] The design was created by Junya Ishigaki, and it is associated with the After Colony timeline.

In the background associated with the suit, the Aquarius was designed by Treize Kushrenada at the same time as the Gundam Epyon. The Aquarius was designed as an anti-mobile doll weapon, broadcasting a computer virus disrupting the friend-or-foe identification systems and rendering the dolls ineffective. Most of the mobile suit's power was given over to the generation and transmission of the virus, preventing the use of beam weaponry. The Aquarius is armed only with two heat rods, but can utilise the same guns carried by Leo mobile suits. The mobile suit did not appear in the "Gundam Wing" anime, or any After Colony works.

Most of the appearances in the video game depict the Aquarius as a suit on automatic pilot, ironically similar to a mobile doll. The only instance of the suit with a human pilot is when Lady Une pilots the mobile suit during a single mission in the expansion pack "SD Gundam: G Generation F.I.F".

In the series background, the Aries was described as a flight-capable mobile suit shortly after the Leo was completed, and is used to support United Earth Sphere Alliance ground forces. To fly, the suit's limbs must be folded into its body.

Lucrezia Noin is the pilot most commonly associated with the Aries, until she acquires a Taurus later in the anime. At various stages throughout the anime and in the "" prequel manga, Aries suits are piloted by Zechs Merquise, Treize Kushrenada, and Quatre Raberba Winner.

In the series background, the Cancer was first deployed in the early AC 190s (five years before the events of the anime), and was the first amphibious mobile suit. Cancers are the least humanoid suit design, resembling the crab, after which the star sign is named. Torpedo launchers are carried in the suit's "claws" and it is capable of folding into a more streamlined design for underwater travel.

Cancers appear in several early episodes of the anime, but do not appear in any other fictional work of the After Colony Era. When seen, Cancers are not piloted by any of the major characters.

The OZ-06MS Leo is named after the Zodiacal Constellation Leo, following the convention established for mass-produced suits in the anime. Leos are operated by both the United Earth Sphere Alliance military and the Organization of the Zodiac (OZ), and multiple variants are in use. Leo is a simplified and scaled down version of the first military mobile suit Tallgeese. [ [http://www.gundamofficial.com/www_ac/gw/mecha/mecha_oz_tallgeese.html Gundamofficial.com] Tallgeese entry] The Leo holds the role of the standard "enemy" suit in the anime [Super Robot Wars F, Unit encyclopedia, Leo Entry] , much as the MS-06 Zaku II did in the "Mobile Suit Gundam" anime and derivatives, of which "Gundam Wing" is an alternate reality. In materials displaying the technical data and statistics relating to the various fictional mecha in the timeline, the Leo is the standard of comparison.

For example, a Cannon type Leo having shoulder cannons and Space type Leo having external vernier thrusters for space maneouver. Leo's piloted by the United Earth Sphere Alliance were typically olive-green colored, while the space versions were colored violet. Both ground and space Leos used by OZ were colored pale blue. In the manga "G-Unit", an EWAC (Reconnaissance) Leo was seen spying nearby at the beginning of the story.

The Olifant design is based on the Maganac design, but lacks manipulator arms and standard legs, instead using a hovercraft propulsion system to skim across the desert. The suit is armed with a large beam cannon and a turret mounted gatling gun, while possessing heavy armor.

Olifants were primarily defensive in nature, and only appeared in a small number of episodes; first appearing in episode 11.

"Olifant" means "Elephant" in Dutch.

The Pisces is capable of transforming into a recognisably humanoid form, allowing it to walk on the ocean floor, perform labour tasks, and participate in amphibious assaults.

Character Sally Po uses the Pisces on several occasions, primarily to recover Wing Gundam in episodes 23 and 29. Lucrezia Noin also pilots a Pisces in episode 29. Other appearances of the Pisces show it as piloted by minor characters.

[Following convention of other OZ/Romefeller mobile suits in the anime]

In the manga, the Scorpio is a one-of-a-kind mobile suit developed to guard the Mobile Doll factory of Vulkanus. It is the largest mobile suit in the After Colony Era. [comparison of technical data at [http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/bfop/oz-16msx-d.htm OZ-16MSX-D Scorpio - Mecha Anime HQ] with that of other After Colony mobile suits] During AC 196 (between "Gundam Wing" and "Endless Waltz"), several groups began searching for Vulkanus, which had drifted out of its stable orbit. The Scorpio attacked those who found the site, until Perfect Peace People leader Victor Gaintz used the suit's codes to disable the Mobile Doll system and become its pilot. Gaintz was killed by Heero Yuy and Wing Zero.

The main weapon of the Scorpio is the beam bayonet, which combined the beam saber and beam rifle into a single unit. The A.S Planet Defensor is an enlarged countepart of the devices mounted on the Virgo mobile dolls, and functions as a beam shield. The transformation between modes is believed to be one-way, as the armor skirt, propellant tanks, and additional weapons were shed, and could not be reacquired in combat. The mobile suit was destroyed before a reverse transformation was depicted in the manga.

According to the background, the Serpent was designed by OZ as a general-purpose replacement for the Leo shortly before or during the events of the "Gundam Wing" anime. During the events of the anime, the production facilities at L3 colony of X18-999 were claimed by the Barton Foundation, who then began to produce mobile suits to use in an attack of the now-pacifistic Earth Sphere Unified Nation. The Serpent bears similarities to the Gundam Heavyarms, most noticably the missiles and Gatling guns, as both of which were constructed by the Barton Foundation.

Serpents are the main opponent in "Endless Waltz". The first example of a Serpent fighting was with Trowa Barton at the controls, although all later appearances were piloted by unnamed Mariemeia Army suit pilots. The three Gundams (Deathscythe Hell, Heavyarms, Sandrock) were put into a hard fight against 250 Serpents. Following the death of Dahkem Barton, the whole Serpent army dropped their weapons and surrendered.

The name Serpent is a reference to Ophiuchus, the 13th sign of the Zodiac which is recognized by astronomers but not used in astrology.

When used by factions other than OZ, the Tauruses are given slightly altered designations and colourschemes; SK-12SMS for the Sanc Kingdom and WF-12SMS for the White Fang organisation. The Tauruses used by the Mariemeia Army in "Endless Waltz" retain the default OZ colourscheme and designation.

The Taurus mobile suit is still in development at the start of the anime, although training prototypes are available for the events of episode 4, and the deployment of the first complete batch of Tauruses is central to the plot of episode 10. It can transform into a fighter spacecraft. The Taurus design was used as a basis for the Mercurius and Vayeate suits, significantly improving on the overall design. Although originally designed for human pilots, the Mobile Doll artificial intelligence system is installed in the mobile suits before episode 19, making them the first AI-controlled mobile suits. Although the Taurus would be replaced by the pilot-less Virgo suits over the course of the anime, Tauruses found use up until the end of the series, with the Sanc Kingdom and the White Fang both using acquired Taurus suits. Sanc Kingdom Tauruses were modified for atmospheric combat, as shown in episode 31. Mobile Doll Tauruses were also used in "Endless Waltz", first to protect the captured colony of L3 X18999, then to distract the Preventers for a time from the real events.

The pilot most associated with the Taurus is Lucrezia Noin, who pilots a white Taurus for the second half of the anime and in the OVA. Lady Une, Quatre Raberba Winner, Trowa Barton, and Hilde Schbeiker also pilot the Taurus on occasion, although in most appearances the mobile suits are either piloted by minor or unnamed characters, or controlled by the Mobile Doll AI.

The series background establishes that the Tragos was one of the early military mobile suit designs, based on the Leo. The key features of the Tragos design are its hovercraft system and shoulder mounted heavy cannons, similar to the RX-75 Guntank from the original "Gundam" anime series; however, bipedal suits were also used to attack the Maganacs in episode 11. The Tragos only appears in a handful of early episodes and the prequel manga ""; it is never piloted by a major character.

The Virgo series are mobile dolls requiring no pilots to control. It can function and combat on its own while it can also receive commands from a central terminal. The name "Virgo" is derived from the constellation, continuing OZ's trend of naming their mobile suits in such fashion. The Virgo model is a combined gestalt of the Mercurius and Vayeate, the result being a body design heavily reminiscent of both suits, with the Vayeate's beam cannon built into the right arm and the Mercurius' planet defensors built into the left shoulder.

The Virgo and it successor the Virgo II (with 8 planet defensers and lacking the beam cannon) is seen in the later part of the anime, although first appeared to be powerful automated units, it became grunt units very soon since their movements are very simple logic and cannot learn from combat experience. [Super Robot Wars series, unit encyclopedia, Virgo Entry] In the original TV series, this weakness could be covered by a tactician, Dorothy, from a central computer unit commanding the formation and tactics of massive groups of virgo thus changing their movement patterns to confuse enemy pilots.
