The AGX-04A1 Gerbera Tetra Kai ("Kai" is the Japanese Kanji character "改", In English translates into "Modified") is a variant of AGX-04 Gerbera Tetra designed by Mika Akitaka. It first appeared in Bandai Visual's Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory laser disc and later appeared in Hobby Japan's GUNDAM WEAPONS 3 as well as Gihren's Greed video game. Katoki Hajime later re-design it as part of Gundam Fix Figuration in 9/2002.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The AGX-04A1 Gerbera Tetra Kai is a unit with less modified parts from the RX-78GP04G Gundam "Gerbera" and would be able to maintain more of the specifications of the RX-78GP04G.
- 110mm Machine Cannon
- The Gerbera Tetra Kai is equipped with four 110mm machine cannons, two mounted on each forearm, with the magazines attached to the elbows. They are much stronger than the 60mm vulcan guns mounted in the head of the Gundam and GM-type mobile suits, and combined with their excellent rate of fire, they are extremely effective in mid-close range mobile suit combat.
- Beam Saber
- The beam saber is a small device held in the mobile suit's hands when deployed and is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor. It emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The Gerbera Tetra Kai has two beam sabers stored in unknown location.
- X-04 Beam Machine Gun
- A prototype beam weapon that continuously fires pulse shaped beams and excels in sweeping fire and assault use, causing widespread destruction by multiple shots. As the technology for intermittently firing mega particles is under development, a cooling jacket and a coolant tank is connected to the barrel and the lower part of the barrel respectively. A forced cooling nozzle is also located at the back of the generator section. When the gun has reached its operating limit, the top part of the generator section slides out for forced cooling and a limiter is also activated, disabling the rapid-fire mode. Reactivation of the mode requires a new coolant tank.
