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 original specifications of the RX-78GP04G.
- 110mm Machine Cannon
- The Gerbera Tetra Kai is equipped with four 110mm machine cannons, two mounted on each forearm. They are much stronger than the 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 cylindrical 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 beam saber is capable of cutting through any metal that has not been treated with anti-beam coating.
- X-04 Beam Machine Gun
- A prototype weapon that was originally considered for the GP04, its rapid-fire capabilities make it particularly effective in melee fighting at close range. It features a powerful cooling system, the cooling tank is mounted on the bottom of the barrel. When the weapon is overworked, the cooler on the rear surface slides to force cooling and the weapon then becomes unusable.
