The Flash System (フラッシュシステム Furasshu Shisutemu?) is special system dedicated to Newtypes that appears in After War Gundam X.

Overview

This combat system was deployed by both the United Nations Earth and the Space Revolutionary Army during the 7th Space War, however each faction used it in different ways. The Gundam series deployed by the United Nations Earth uses this system to control "Bit Mobile Suits", with the GX-9900 Gundam X also using it to access the registration and authentication system at the lunar solar power station when activating the Satellite System. The effective connection range of the Flash System is uncommonly large, as the Gundam X is able to link up with the lunar facility even when on the ground, a distance of around 380,000 km. In addition, the GB-9700 Gundam Belphagor has this system built into its control system, and by using it to control the machine's body and armament instead of Bit MS, it achieved high performance that far surpasses that of conventional MS. The Space Revolutionary Army mainly used it for Newtype-use MS equipped with bit weapons, such as the RMSN-008 Bertigo and RMSN-002 Febral.

History

After the end of the 7th Space War and with the death or disappearance of most Newtypes, the Flash System became obsolete, as most Gundams surviving the war fell into the hands of Oldtypes. In AW 0015, the New United Nations Earth developed the prototype NRX-016 Rasveht, which again allowed a Newtype pilot to control Bit MS. The Rasveht was however destroyed in its debut battle and since then, no new Mobile Weapons using the system have appeared.
