==Armaments==
 
;*Mace
 
;*Mace
:A physical destruction weapon made from a rare alloy with high hardness that is also used in mobile suit frames.<ref name="hg barbatos"/> As mobile suits use Nano Laminated Armor for protection, such striking weapons are considered to be effective. The centre spear-like tip of the mace can extend forward and impale enemy unit. <ref name="hg barbatos"/> The Mace can be stored on the back when not in use.
+
:Maruba Arkay (CGS president) had considered using the Barbatos in battle and so had kept some equipment for it.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos 6th form">1/100 Barbatos 6th Form Model Kit manual | Translation Link: [http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=16866&start=40#p381770]</ref> The Mace is one of them, it is a large physical weapon made from a high hardness, rare alloy that is also used in mobile suit frames.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos 6th form" /><ref name="hg barbatos" /> As mobile suits use Nanolaminate Armor for protection, such striking weapons are considered to be effective.<ref name="hg barbatos" /> The centre of the Mace features a pile driver mechanism that fires a 'Needle' (a large spike rod) from the tip when activated, and this is often used for piercing the enemy MS.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos 6th form" /> The Mace's handle is telescopic, and it can be stored on the backpack arm when not in use.<ref name="IBO M.Works">'Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Mechanical Works' Book</ref> Used by the 1st Form up to the 5th Form, it was lost during the atmospheric entry battle with Gundam Kimaris and was left floating in earth's orbit.
   
 
;*Long Sword
 
;*Long Sword
:A mobile suit-use sword created at Teiwaz's HQ ''Jupiter'' factory.<ref name="hg barbatos"/> It shows its superiority during localized attacks because it's easy to handle due to its lightweight.<ref name="hg barbatos"/>
+
:A mobile suit-use sword shaped like a katana, it was created in the factory within Teiwaz's base, Saisei.<ref name="hg barbatos" /> It is easy to handle due to its light weight, and shows its superiority during localized attacks.<ref name="hg barbatos" /> The sword's grip is later improved to fit Barbatos' hands better and to help minimize kinetic energy loss when using the weapon.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos">1/100 ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Model Kit manual | Translation Link: [http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=16636&start=320#p379492]</ref> Due to the high strength of the Nanolaminate Armor, the sword's slashes are ineffective, thus, Mikazuki is forced to aim for gaps within the enemy mobile suit's armor with the help of the Alaya-Vijnana System.<ref name="HR1-100BARBATOS">High Resolution Model 1/100 ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos manual | Translation Link: [http://mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?p=381877#p381877]</ref> The long sword primarily functions as a backup melee weapon when the mace or the large special mace is available as Mikazuki finds it hard to use. However, in the battle with Graze Ein, Mikazuki finally mastered the weapon and it is shown to be able to slice through both mobile suit armor and frame in a single attack. The long sword can be stored on the backpack arm when not in use. Used by the 4th Form onwards.
   
 
;*Gauntlet
 
;*Gauntlet
:Already equipped when Barbatos was discovered on Mars.<ref name="hg barbatos"/> It is thought to be one of Barbatos' original equipment but it is not a complete certainty.<ref name="hg barbatos"/>
+
:Already equipped when Barbatos was discovered on Mars.<ref name="hg barbatos" /> It is thought to be one of Barbatos' original equipment but it is not a complete certainty.<ref name="hg barbatos" /> Used only by the 1st Form and 2nd Form, the Gauntlet was lost when it was ejected alongside the rest of the left forearm armor during the battle with Gjallarhorn forces near the Mars' low orbital station.
   
;*Smooth-bore Gun
+
;*Smoothbore Gun
:Large caliber rifle produced for use mainly in zero gravity space, emphasis was placed on power rather than accuracy.<ref name="hgIBOoption1"/> It can be folded up and mounted to the back.<ref name="hgIBOoption1">High Grade Iron Blooded Orphans 1/144 Option Set 1 manual | Translation Link: [http://mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?p=378142#p378142]</ref>
+
:A 300mm caliber gun produced for use mainly in zero gravity environment and space, emphasis was placed on power rather than accuracy.<ref name="hgIBOoption1" /><ref name="1/100 Barbatos" /> The high-speed maneuvers of enemy mobile suit in space further made it difficult for the smoothbore gun to hit them with high accuracy, but this was overcome thanks to the Alaya-Vijnana System.<ref name="HR1-100BARBATOS" /> The high-speed bullet fired from the Smoothbore Gun have occasionally shot off the armor pieces of enemy mobile suits or even penetrate their Nanolaminate Armor. The weapon also has a 60mm machine-gun at the bottom.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos" /> It can be folded up and mounted to the suit's backpack arm when not in use. <ref name="hgIBOoption1">High-Grade Iron-Blooded Orphans 1/144 Option Set 1 Box Text | Translation Link: [http://mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?p=378142#p378142]</ref> The unfolded gun can be used while still mounted thanks to the design of the backpack arms. Its magazine holds 12 rounds.<ref name="IBO M&W">'Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Mechanics & World' Book</ref> Used by the 2nd Form to the 5th Form.
   
;*Wire Claw
+
;*GR-Es02 Wire Claw
:A shooting claw weapon mounted on the left forearm that is used for restraining enemy mobile suits as well as for clinging to enemy vessels.<ref name="hgSGrazeMcgillis">High Grade 1/144 EB-5s Schwalbe Graze model kit manual | Translation Link: [http://mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?p=378290#p378290]</ref> It was taken from Gaelio's Schwalbe Graze.

;*GR-H01 9.8m Battle Axe
 
;*GR-H01 9.8m Battle Axe
:Same close combat weapon as used by Graze. Because MS are protected by Nano Laminated Armor, direct blows are considered to be extremely effective during MS battle. The Battle Axe is an equipment developed for MS battle.
+
:A close combat weapon used by Graze that the Barbatos obtained temporarily during the battle with Gjallarhorn forces near the Mars' low orbital station.
  +
  +
;*Long Range Rifle
  +
:A weapon borrowed from the Gundam Gusion Rebake. A modified, long range version of Graze's 120mm rifle, it is created by Teiwaz engineers that are with the Turbines. Thanks to the longer barrel and the added scope, its long-range accuracy has been greatly improved.
  +
  +
;*Arm Mortar
  +
:A weapon originally designed for the [[JEE-M103 Kutan Type-III|Kutan Type-III]], it can also be used by mobile suits.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form">1/144 High Grace Barbatos 6th Form Model Kit manual</ref> Two mortars can be stored on each of the Barbatos' forearms. When in use, the mortar will flip forward for firing. Once the first mortar is launched, the second mortar slides up. The mortar launcher then flips back and the second mortar is loaded.<ref name="IBO M.Works"/> Although seen in use only by the 5th Form, the arm mortars can also be used by the 5th Form Ground Type or the 6th Form if required.
  +
  +
;*170mm Autocannon
  +
:Depending on the situation, the four arm mortars can be replaced by a pair of autocannons that uses helical magazines.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /><ref name="IBO M.Works"/> The autocannons' barrels extend when in use.<ref name="IBO M.Works"/> Due to their limited ammunition, they are unsuitable for long range shooting battle, but are highly effective when used in close combat.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos 6th form" /> Used by the 5th Form Ground Type onwards.
  +
  +
;*Large Special Mace
  +
:A replacement for the original mace after it was lost during the atmospheric entry battle, it has the nickname 'Wrench Mace'.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /> Besides functioning as an excellent striking weapon, the front portion of the wrench mace can open up and clamp onto an enemy unit tightly.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /> A special chainsaw hidden in the bulbous front portion of the mace can then slice apart the enemy unit.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /> Used by the 5th Form Ground Type onwards, and can be stored on the backpack arm when not in use. The mace was destroyed in combat by the Graze Ein during the battle in Edmonton.

  +
;*5th Form
  +
:A new form with added waist boosters, redesigned forearm armor with mortars and chest-mounted reactive armor. Some of the new parts were provided by the [[Montag Company]].<ref name="officialbarbatos" /> The waist boosters serve to increase the suit's mobility and were originally the hip-mounted flight units of [[EB-05s Schwalbe Graze|Ein's Schwalbe Graze]], Tekkadan recovered the parts when they were dislodged from the Schwalbe Graze during an earlier battle. The reactive armor serves as a countermeasure against the Kimaris' hit-and-run attacks with its Gungnir lance.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" />
  +
  +
;*5th Form Ground Type
  +
:A modified version of the 5th Form for ground combat<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" />, it was created with the help of Eco Turbine and again used parts provided by the Montag Company. The leg suspension was adjusted to adapt to the earth's gravity and new feet were used. As a result of this, the suit now has a higher center of gravity, leading to faster reaction and thus better mobility under gravity.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /> The added waist thrusters were removed as they were deemed useless for ground combat, and the forearm mortars can be exchanged with autocannons.
  +
  +
;*6th Form
  +
:A reinforced version of the 5th Form Ground-Type for the final battle.<ref name="officialbarbatos" /> The side skirt armor was replaced with a pair "Tail Boosters", the shoulder armor was replaced with those from the [[EB-06r Graze Ritter]], and additional armor is added to the chest.<ref name="1/100 Barbatos 6th form" /><ref name="IBO M.Works"/> The tail boosters improve the suit's ground mobility, and have reduced fuel consumption.<ref name="IBO M.Works"/> <ref name="1/100 Barbatos 6th form" /> The added chest armor provides the cockpit with better protection from concentrated attacks and can withstand prolonged battle.<ref name="GMGSPRING-P17">Great Mechanics G Spring 2016 - Page 17 | Link :[http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/4e1dcde1gw1f2dq8xgvcpj21kw2904qp.jpg]</ref> Although the new armor reduces the suit's mobility, they allow the Barbatos to battle for prolonged periods without any resupply.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /> When required, the shoulder armors can be ejected and used as a decoy.
  +
  +
==Special Equipment & Features==
  +
;*[[Post Disaster Technology#General|Alaya-Vijnana System]]
  +
:An organic device system, this old man-machine interface was developed during the Calamity War to maximize the abilities of the mobile suit. Hence, most mobile suits from that era, like the Gundams, are compatible with it. The system has two parts, one part is installed in the mobile suit, and the other part is implanted into the pilot’s spine. With this system, the pilot can connect to the mobile suit's computer and directly process mobile suit data. It also allows the pilot (even uneducated ones) to operate mobile suit for combat without reading the instruction manual, and can make difficult weapons like the Barbatos' Long Sword and the Smoothbore Gun much easier to use.<ref name="HR1-100BARBATOS" /> The implant in the pilot also enhances spatial awareness. The drop in technical capabilities after the Calamity War, coupled with the use of an incomplete version of the system in the Outer Sphere areas (such as Mars and Jupiter), lead to the implant surgery having a low success rate and can only be done at a young age to let the implant fuse as the pilot grow. As the Barbatos' original cockpit was missing, it was fitted with the Alaya-Vijnana System interface from a [[TK-53 CGS Mobile Worker|Mobile Worker]] to allow the system to function. The Barbatos' Alaya-Vijnana System can transmit higher than the usual amount of data to the pilot as its limiter was switched off for [[Mikazuki Augus|Mikazuki]]'s use, thus only he can pilot the Gundam without any problems.
  +
  +
;*Backpack Arm
  +
:There are two backpack arms on the Barbatos' backpack, one on each side of the back thruster. The backpack arms can mount weapons, and when their hidden jointed arms are deployed, some weapons, such as the Smoothbore Gun, can be used while still mounted. <ref name="1/100 Barbatos" />
  +
  +
;*[[JEE-M103 Kutan Type-III]]
  +
:A long distance transport craft/booster used for transporting containers and mobile suit. It can travel at extremely high speeds and thus traverse great distances in just a short amount of time. It was used by Mikazuki and Nadi to catch up to the Isaribi because they stayed behind at Saisei to help with the Barbatos' overhaul.{{ref|G-Tekketsu|11}}
  +
  +
;*Chest Reactive Armour
  +
:Additional armor mounted on the chest, it is used by Barbatos 5th form. The chest reactive armor was created by Tekkadan Mechanic, Nadi, as a countermeasure against the Kimaris' hit and run attacks with its Gungnir lance. It can endure a hit from the Gungnir and will be purged immediately after, thus repelling the attack.<ref name="Hg Barbatos 6th form" /> Barbatos can then use the chance to hold onto the lance and prevent further attacks.
   
 
==History==
 
==History==
Barbatos was one of the 72 Gundams utilized during the Calamity War 300 years prior. It was later discovered by [[Maruba Arkay]] in the Mars' desert and was recovered to serve as a power generator for [[Chryse Guard Security]]'s base. The machine was taken out of the base by [[Mikazuki Augus]] during Gjallarhorn's assault. CGS, now [[Tekkadan]], continues to improve the suit with parts and armor taken from Gjallarhorn's mobile suits.

The Gundam Barbatos is the 8th of the 72 Gundam Frames created by [[Gjallarhorn]] near the end of the Calamity War to counter the threat of the powerful mobile armors such as [[Hashmal]]. It was later discovered by [[Maruba Arkay]] in the Mars desert and was recovered to serve as a power reactor for [[Chryse Guard Security]]'s base. The machine was taken out of the base by [[Mikazuki Augus]] during Gjallarhorn's assault. CGS, now [[Tekkadan]], continued to improve the suit with parts and armor taken from defeated Gjallarhorn mobile suits. Teiwaz technicians later restored the Barbatos to its original appearance and close to its original performance.
  +
  +
Following the defeat of the [[Brewers]], Barbatos' spare parts were used to transform the [[ASW-G-11 Gundam Gusion]] that Tekkadan had obtained from the space pirates into the [[ASW-G-11 Gundam Gusion Rebake]]. After the [[Montag Company]] offered their alliance to Tekkadan, the group gives them spare parts for Gundam Barbatos as a gift. These parts were used in Barbatos' subsequent forms, proving to be handy during the atmospheric entry battle and subsequent battles on Earth.
  +
  +
On Earth, the battle at Millennium Island with [[Carta Issue]]'s forces resulted in Barbatos losing its shoulder armor, and they were replaced by those from a defeated Graze Ritter. It was also upgraded with new waist boosters. En route to Edmonton, Tekkadan met with Carta's forces again, but they were quickly dispatched by the Barbatos. At the outskirt of Edmonton, the Barbatos and Tekkadan's other mobile suits spent three days fighting with [[Corlis Stenja]]'s forces. The enemy was eventually reinforced by [[Gaelio Bauduin]]'s [[ASW-G-66 Gundam Kimaris Trooper]] and [[Ein Dalton]]'s [[EB-AX2 Graze Ein]], and the Barbatos was subsequently locked in a fight with the former. With help from [[McGillis Fareed]] and his [[V08-1228 Grimgerde]], Mikazuki and Barbatos escaped from the Kimaris Trooper and heads to the city where it stopped the Graze Ein from killing [[Kudelia Aina Bernstein]]. During the fight with Graze Ein, Mikazuki was pushed hard and in order to win, he sought more power from the Barbatos via his Alaya Vijnana system. The system responded and improved his reaction speed, leading to Barbatos having better movements. The Barbatos' shoulder armor and backpack were later ejected as decoys, and the suit managed to slice off Graze Ein's forearms after Mikazuki mastered the Long Sword - the Barbatos' only handheld weapon left at that time. The Barbatos then won the battle after piercing Graze Ein's cockpit, killing Ein.
  +
  +
After the battle of Edmonton, the Gundam Barbatos participated in numerous battles for Tekkadan. However, its accumulated damage soon proved too much for Tekkadan's mechanics to repair. Thus, it was sent alongside the Gundam Gusion Rebake to the MS Workshop in Saisei to receive an overhaul, becoming the [[ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus]].

Latest revision as of 23:30, June 26, 2020

Please note that this is the Gundam Wiki's article on the Post Disaster mobile suit; if you are looking for the article on the mobile suit from SD Gundam G Generation World then you should head to GGV-000 Barbatos.
The ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos is the main mobile suit of the Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS television series. The unit is primarily piloted by Mikazuki Augus.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The Gundam Barbatos is one of 72 "Gundam" frames that was produced and used in the Calamity War, roughly 300 years ago.[1][2] After it was recovered, Chryse Guard Security used it as a power reactor.[2] Aside from the fact that its Ahab Reactors were still functional, this was done mainly because Barbatos' cockpit was missing when it was found.[3] A new cockpit similar to the one used by the CGS mobile workers was installed prior to its redeployment by the 3rd Group.[4] Poor maintenance over the centuries since the Calamity War has degraded the Barbatos' armor and full combat potential[2]. This is later rectified by Teiwaz technicians, who not only restored the Barbatos to its original look but also returned it back to a performance close to its original. [5]

Gundam units like the Barbatos are able to achieve a high energy output because they possess two Ahab Reactors.[6][1] However because it is difficult to run them in parallel operation,[6][1] only a total of 72 Gundam frames were ever produced.[6][1] The burden experienced by the pilot is high as a result of the high output and maneuverability; however it's mitigated by the implementation of Inertial Control due to the use of Ahab Particles generated from the reactor when a phase transition occurs inside its vacuum device.[1] The cockpit structure is positioned in front of the reactor to take advantage of this.[1] Among the same frame machines, Barbatos has been adjusted for an emphasis on versatility, it has the potential to adapt to every circumstances by exchanging its equipment.[1] It can also use weapons and armor from defeated enemies to improve its fighting capabilities.

ArmamentsEdit

  • Mace
Maruba Arkay (CGS president) had considered using the Barbatos in battle and so had kept some equipment for it.[7] The Mace is one of them, it is a large physical weapon made from a high hardness, rare alloy that is also used in mobile suit frames.[7][1] As mobile suits use Nanolaminate Armor for protection, such striking weapons are considered to be effective.[1] The centre of the Mace features a pile driver mechanism that fires a 'Needle' (a large spike rod) from the tip when activated, and this is often used for piercing the enemy MS.[7] The Mace's handle is telescopic, and it can be stored on the backpack arm when not in use.[8] Used by the 1st Form up to the 5th Form, it was lost during the atmospheric entry battle with Gundam Kimaris and was left floating in earth's orbit.
  • Long Sword
A mobile suit-use sword shaped like a katana, it was created in the factory within Teiwaz's base, Saisei.[1] It is easy to handle due to its light weight, and shows its superiority during localized attacks.[1] The sword's grip is later improved to fit Barbatos' hands better and to help minimize kinetic energy loss when using the weapon.[5] Due to the high strength of the Nanolaminate Armor, the sword's slashes are ineffective, thus, Mikazuki is forced to aim for gaps within the enemy mobile suit's armor with the help of the Alaya-Vijnana System.[9] The long sword primarily functions as a backup melee weapon when the mace or the large special mace is available as Mikazuki finds it hard to use. However, in the battle with Graze Ein, Mikazuki finally mastered the weapon and it is shown to be able to slice through both mobile suit armor and frame in a single attack. The long sword can be stored on the backpack arm when not in use. Used by the 4th Form onwards.
  • Gauntlet
Already equipped when Barbatos was discovered on Mars.[1] It is thought to be one of Barbatos' original equipment but it is not a complete certainty.[1] Used only by the 1st Form and 2nd Form, the Gauntlet was lost when it was ejected alongside the rest of the left forearm armor during the battle with Gjallarhorn forces near the Mars' low orbital station.
  • Smoothbore Gun
A 300mm caliber gun produced for use mainly in zero gravity environment and space, emphasis was placed on power rather than accuracy.[10][5] The high-speed maneuvers of enemy mobile suit in space further made it difficult for the smoothbore gun to hit them with high accuracy, but this was overcome thanks to the Alaya-Vijnana System.[9] The high-speed bullet fired from the Smoothbore Gun have occasionally shot off the armor pieces of enemy mobile suits or even penetrate their Nanolaminate Armor. The weapon also has a 60mm machine-gun at the bottom.[5] It can be folded up and mounted to the suit's backpack arm when not in use. [10] The unfolded gun can be used while still mounted thanks to the design of the backpack arms. Its magazine holds 12 rounds.[11] Used by the 2nd Form to the 5th Form.
  • GR-Es02 Wire Claw
Used only by the 3rd Form, it is a shooting claw weapon mounted on the left forearm that is used for restraining enemy mobile suits as well as for clinging to enemy vessels.[12] It was taken from Gaelio's Schwalbe Graze and replaces the lost Gauntlet.
  • GR-H01 9.8m Battle Axe
A close combat weapon used by Graze that the Barbatos obtained temporarily during the battle with Gjallarhorn forces near the Mars' low orbital station.
  • Long Range Rifle
A weapon borrowed from the Gundam Gusion Rebake. A modified, long range version of Graze's 120mm rifle, it is created by Teiwaz engineers that are with the Turbines. Thanks to the longer barrel and the added scope, its long-range accuracy has been greatly improved.
  • Arm Mortar
A weapon originally designed for the Kutan Type-III, it can also be used by mobile suits.[13] Two mortars can be stored on each of the Barbatos' forearms. When in use, the mortar will flip forward for firing. Once the first mortar is launched, the second mortar slides up. The mortar launcher then flips back and the second mortar is loaded.[8] Although seen in use only by the 5th Form, the arm mortars can also be used by the 5th Form Ground Type or the 6th Form if required.
  • 170mm Autocannon
Depending on the situation, the four arm mortars can be replaced by a pair of autocannons that uses helical magazines.[13][8] The autocannons' barrels extend when in use.[8] Due to their limited ammunition, they are unsuitable for long range shooting battle, but are highly effective when used in close combat.[7] Used by the 5th Form Ground Type onwards.
  • Large Special Mace
A replacement for the original mace after it was lost during the atmospheric entry battle, it has the nickname 'Wrench Mace'.[13] Besides functioning as an excellent striking weapon, the front portion of the wrench mace can open up and clamp onto an enemy unit tightly.[13] A special chainsaw hidden in the bulbous front portion of the mace can then slice apart the enemy unit.[13] Used by the 5th Form Ground Type onwards, and can be stored on the backpack arm when not in use. The mace was destroyed in combat by the Graze Ein during the battle in Edmonton.

FormsEdit

  • 1st Form
Barbatos was in this form when Maruba Arkay (CGS president) discovered it in Mars' desert 300 years after the Calamity War.[1][3] Since its Ahab Reactors were still in an operational state it was used as the CGS HQ's power source until Mikazuki boarded it.[1] At the time it did not have any shoulder armor.
  • 2nd Form
CGS was later reformed into Tekkadan, and prior to Tekkadan's departure to Earth, the Barbatos' 1st Form is fitted with the shoulder armor from the captured EB-06 Graze.[14] These shoulder armors have the same white and blue color scheme as the main body as they are painted with the same Nanolaminate Armor.[14]
  • 3rd Form
After the battle with Gjallarhorn near the low orbital station, the Barbatos 2nd Form is equipped with the Wire Claw captured from Gaelio's Schwalbe Graze to fix the damaged left forearm armor.[14]
  • 4th Form
Barbatos' original form, it is reproduced by technicians at Teiwaz's base, Saisei, based on ancient materials from the time of the Calamity War that had been recorded in their database.[1] The machine's weight balance is stabilized, and the two reactors' output and operation rate are also improved after extensive maintenance and overhaul.[1][5] While Barbatos's performance is now closer to the original state, it is still not yet at 100%.[5][15]
  • 5th Form
A new form with added waist boosters, redesigned forearm armor with mortars and chest-mounted reactive armor. Some of the new parts were provided by the Montag Company.[14] The waist boosters serve to increase the suit's mobility and were originally the hip-mounted flight units of Ein's Schwalbe Graze, Tekkadan recovered the parts when they were dislodged from the Schwalbe Graze during an earlier battle. The reactive armor serves as a countermeasure against the Kimaris' hit-and-run attacks with its Gungnir lance.[13]
  • 5th Form Ground Type
A modified version of the 5th Form for ground combat[13], it was created with the help of Eco Turbine and again used parts provided by the Montag Company. The leg suspension was adjusted to adapt to the earth's gravity and new feet were used. As a result of this, the suit now has a higher center of gravity, leading to faster reaction and thus better mobility under gravity.[13] The added waist thrusters were removed as they were deemed useless for ground combat, and the forearm mortars can be exchanged with autocannons.
  • 6th Form
A reinforced version of the 5th Form Ground-Type for the final battle.[14] The side skirt armor was replaced with a pair "Tail Boosters", the shoulder armor was replaced with those from the EB-06r Graze Ritter, and additional armor is added to the chest.[7][8] The tail boosters improve the suit's ground mobility, and have reduced fuel consumption.[8] [7] The added chest armor provides the cockpit with better protection from concentrated attacks and can withstand prolonged battle.[15] Although the new armor reduces the suit's mobility, they allow the Barbatos to battle for prolonged periods without any resupply.[13] When required, the shoulder armors can be ejected and used as a decoy.

Special Equipment & FeaturesEdit

An organic device system, this old man-machine interface was developed during the Calamity War to maximize the abilities of the mobile suit. Hence, most mobile suits from that era, like the Gundams, are compatible with it. The system has two parts, one part is installed in the mobile suit, and the other part is implanted into the pilot’s spine. With this system, the pilot can connect to the mobile suit's computer and directly process mobile suit data. It also allows the pilot (even uneducated ones) to operate mobile suit for combat without reading the instruction manual, and can make difficult weapons like the Barbatos' Long Sword and the Smoothbore Gun much easier to use.[9] The implant in the pilot also enhances spatial awareness. The drop in technical capabilities after the Calamity War, coupled with the use of an incomplete version of the system in the Outer Sphere areas (such as Mars and Jupiter), lead to the implant surgery having a low success rate and can only be done at a young age to let the implant fuse as the pilot grow. As the Barbatos' original cockpit was missing, it was fitted with the Alaya-Vijnana System interface from a Mobile Worker to allow the system to function. The Barbatos' Alaya-Vijnana System can transmit higher than the usual amount of data to the pilot as its limiter was switched off for Mikazuki's use, thus only he can pilot the Gundam without any problems.

There are two backpack arms on the Barbatos' backpack, one on each side of the back thruster. The backpack arms can mount weapons, and when their hidden jointed arms are deployed, some weapons, such as the Smoothbore Gun, can be used while still mounted. [5]
A long distance transport craft/booster used for transporting containers and mobile suit. It can travel at extremely high speeds and thus traverse great distances in just a short amount of time. It was used by Mikazuki and Nadi to catch up to the Isaribi because they stayed behind at Saisei to help with the Barbatos' overhaul.[16]
  • Chest Reactive Armour
Additional armor mounted on the chest, it is used by Barbatos 5th form. The chest reactive armor was created by Tekkadan Mechanic, Nadi, as a countermeasure against the Kimaris' hit and run attacks with its Gungnir lance. It can endure a hit from the Gungnir and will be purged immediately after, thus repelling the attack.[13] Barbatos can then use the chance to hold onto the lance and prevent further attacks.

HistoryEdit

The Gundam Barbatos is the 8th of the 72 Gundam Frames created by Gjallarhorn near the end of the Calamity War to counter the threat of the powerful mobile armors such as Hashmal. It was later discovered by Maruba Arkay in the Mars desert and was recovered to serve as a power reactor for Chryse Guard Security's base. The machine was taken out of the base by Mikazuki Augus during Gjallarhorn's assault. CGS, now Tekkadan, continued to improve the suit with parts and armor taken from defeated Gjallarhorn mobile suits. Teiwaz technicians later restored the Barbatos to its original appearance and close to its original performance.

Following the defeat of the Brewers, Barbatos' spare parts were used to transform the ASW-G-11 Gundam Gusion that Tekkadan had obtained from the space pirates into the ASW-G-11 Gundam Gusion Rebake. After the Montag Company offered their alliance to Tekkadan, the group gives them spare parts for Gundam Barbatos as a gift. These parts were used in Barbatos' subsequent forms, proving to be handy during the atmospheric entry battle and subsequent battles on Earth.

On Earth, the battle at Millennium Island with Carta Issue's forces resulted in Barbatos losing its shoulder armor, and they were replaced by those from a defeated Graze Ritter. It was also upgraded with new waist boosters. En route to Edmonton, Tekkadan met with Carta's forces again, but they were quickly dispatched by the Barbatos. At the outskirt of Edmonton, the Barbatos and Tekkadan's other mobile suits spent three days fighting with Corlis Stenja's forces. The enemy was eventually reinforced by Gaelio Bauduin's ASW-G-66 Gundam Kimaris Trooper and Ein Dalton's EB-AX2 Graze Ein, and the Barbatos was subsequently locked in a fight with the former. With help from McGillis Fareed and his V08-1228 Grimgerde, Mikazuki and Barbatos escaped from the Kimaris Trooper and heads to the city where it stopped the Graze Ein from killing Kudelia Aina Bernstein. During the fight with Graze Ein, Mikazuki was pushed hard and in order to win, he sought more power from the Barbatos via his Alaya Vijnana system. The system responded and improved his reaction speed, leading to Barbatos having better movements. The Barbatos' shoulder armor and backpack were later ejected as decoys, and the suit managed to slice off Graze Ein's forearms after Mikazuki mastered the Long Sword - the Barbatos' only handheld weapon left at that time. The Barbatos then won the battle after piercing Graze Ein's cockpit, killing Ein.

After the battle of Edmonton, the Gundam Barbatos participated in numerous battles for Tekkadan. However, its accumulated damage soon proved too much for Tekkadan's mechanics to repair. Thus, it was sent alongside the Gundam Gusion Rebake to the MS Workshop in Saisei to receive an overhaul, becoming the ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus.

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • Barbatos is the 8th demon of the Ars Goetia. He is an earl and duke of Hell, ruling thirty legions of demons and has four kings as his companions to command his legions. He can speak to animals, can tell the future, conciliates friends and rulers, and can lead men to treasure hidden by the enchantment of magicians.
    • Barbatos' demon motif could be a nod to the infamous "White Devil" nickname, which is given to various Gundam-type mobile suits in other Gundam series.
  • Of all the Gundam Frames shown in the anime, Barbatos is the only one with the traditional two-vented mouthpiece.
    • In the Post Disaster timeline, Barbatos, Astaroth and Marchosias possess the two-vented mouthpiece.
  • The Master Grade model of the Barbatos has an original gimmick where parts of the mace's head can be separated from the shaft and used as short swords.
