The GAT-02L2 Dagger L is an improvement of the GAT-01 Strike Dagger. It shares a similar body frame to that of the GAT-01A1 Dagger but with updated weaponry, including four 12.5mm CIWS on the head and shoulders, 2 "Stiletto" armor penetrators stored in the hips, two beam sabers mounted just above the hips, and a small but powerful beam carbine, along with an arm-mounted shield. The Dagger L can also use a large bazooka for anti-ship combat. Like the 105 Dagger this unit can also use Striker Packs such as the AQM/E-M11 Doppelhorn Striker pack for artillery bombardment, and the AQM/E-A4ME Jet Striker pack, which gives the Dagger L the ability to fly in an atmosphere and four hardpoints for missiles or rockets. The Dagger L is also compatible with the original Striker Packs. These enhancements make the GAT-02L2's performance equal to that of ZAFT's ZGMF-601R GuAIZ R, but they fall short of the ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior.

A black special forces model, known as the Dark Dagger L, also exists; it seems this variant is identical in performance to the basic model, however.

As of late CE 73, the GAT-02L2 is still widely used but has been succeeded in production by the new GAT-04 Windam.

In November 73, an Earth Alliance special forces team operating from the assault ship Girty Lue uses Dagger Ls to assault Armory 1, namely 2 black units intended for stealth operations, which succeeded in disabling the port, while another two attack the ZAFT vessels before being shot down by ZAFT forces. Later, another 2 Dagger Ls attempt to destroy ZAFT's new vessel, the Minerva, but are easily defeated. After the fall of Junius Seven on Earth, the Alliance sends a fleet to take down PLANT with a large Dagger L force into battle against ZAFT's GuAIZ R, ZAKUs, GINNs, and CGUEs.

Simliar to the apperance of the ZAKU Warrior/Phantom on ZAFTs side the Dagger L is another nostalgic design copied from the UC universe. While the previus Dagger models already had the role of UCs GMs the DaggerL has a strongly GM inspired face design. However while the original GM had a big visor plate because of its Mono-eyes the Daggers and with that the DaggerL have the same duel eye design the Gundams have just hidden behind its visor plate which leads to the question why the Dagger L has such a big plate.
