GNT-0000/FS 00 Qan[T] Full Saber (aka 00 Qan[T] Full Saber, pronounced "Double-Oh Quanta Full Saber") is a variant of the GNT-0000 00 Qan[T]​ that appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam 00V: Battlefield Record.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The 00 Qan[T] Full Saber is the 00 Qan[T] equipped with the GN Sword IV Full Saber equipment, which is supposed to function like the GNR-010 0 Raiser, to adjust the synchronization of GNT-0000 00 Qan[T]​'s twin drive system. However, since tests showed that the Qan[T]'s GN drives can be be fully synchronized without the need of adjustments, the GN Sword IV Full Saber became unnecessary and is not equipped on the suit even though it has been manufactured. [1] Unlike the backpack-like structure used in the normal 00 Qan[T]​, a more traditional cone GN Drive chassis is used on the Full Saber. Both the GN Sword IV Full Saber and the GN Shield are physically connected to this alternate backpack in a style more reminiscent of its predecessor 00 Raiser. As a result, the GN Sword IV Full Saber on the right side can help to balance out the GN Shield on the left and thus maintain the suit's balance during combat. The 00 Qan[T] Full Saber setup is also equipped with two new weapons. First is the GN Sword IV, which can transform into 5 different modes for carrying different kinds of attacks. Second is the GN Gunblades, three dagger-like blades attached to the GN Sword IV which can be used in three different forms.[1]


  • GN Gunblade
These are three dagger like weapons mounted on the GN Sword IV.[2] Similar to most weapons of the GN Sword series, they possess both a Gun Mode and a Blade Mode.[2] Two of these can combine together to form the "GN Gunblade Twin Edge".[2] The GN Gunblades can be combined with the GN Sword IV in a number of different forms and can be used as the handles in some of these forms.[2]
  • Blade Mode: The basic form of the Gunblade, which is used as a dagger.
  • Gun Mode: The Gunblade can be used as a handgun after swinging its blade down to reveal a handle, with the Blade Mode's hilt serving as the muzzle.
  • Twin Edge: A mode where the two Gunblades are combined at their hilts in Blade mode, forming a dual-bladed weapon.[3] Its dual blades make it possible to perform tricky attacks, and it is also suitable for throwing.[3]
  • GN Sword IV
Developed before GN Sword V as indicated by its name, it is a GN Sword with a similar appearance to the GN Buster Sword II but with the green blade used in GN Sword III. The sword consists of two parts: the top part contains the sword blade and is about 2/3 of the total sword's length, while the bottom part is the sword base and contains the sword handle. The handle is retracted while the sword is stored, with one Gunblade attached to the flat side of the sword while the other two are attachedalong the edges. In addition to the regular "Saber" and "Full Saber Modes" (with 0-2 GN Gunblades/with all GN Gunblades mounted receptively), it also possess four other modes: "GN Katar Mode", "Rifle Mode (High Output & Rapid Fire)", "Rifle Mode (Wide Cutter Particle Beam)", and "GN Launcher Mode".[2]
  • Saber Mode: The basic form of the GN Sword IV, it can have up to two GN Gunblades attached to the bottom part.
  • Full Saber Mode: The form of the GN Sword IV with all three GN Gunblades attached to it. It is similar to the form the GN Sword IV is stored in except that the third GN Gunblade attached to the bottom of the blade part is rotated, with the GN Gunblade's blade pointing down towards the hilt of the sword.
  • GN Katar Mode: The form of the GN Sword IV when its blade section is used alone.
  • Rifle Mode (High Output & Rapid Fire): The combination of the GN Sword IV's sword blade part with one of the GN Gunblades serving as its handle. The sword blade points backward, with the base serving as the muzzle.
  • Rifle Mode (Wide Cutter Particle Beam): Identical to the other Rifle Mode but the sword blade is rotated so that it points forward.
  • GN Launcher Mode: An alternate form of the GN Sword IV with all it's parts combined. It appears as the Full Saber Mode but with the sword handle retracted and the two GN Gunblades along the edges rotated with their blades facing outward. In this form, the GN Sword IV is held using the two GN Gunblades on the sides as handles.
  • GN Sword V
The 00 Qan[T]'s primary weapon. It is fully made from the green material used to make GN Condensers. The beam output of it's rifle mode is variable. It possesses two modes: Sword Mode and Rifle Mode. In conjunction to an ordinary rifle mode, it can also combine with the GN Sword Bits to either form a buster rifle or a buster sword depending on the formation.[​1]​[​11]​​ With all six GN Sword Bits attached to the sword in its buster rifle mode, 00 Qan[T] possesses the ability to create a large beam saber similar to the Raiser Sword while in Trans-Am.[​3]​​ When not in use, it is then stored on Qan[T]'s left waist.[​7]​​ Before entering the portal to the ELS' home world, Setsuna willingly threw the weapon aside.[​3]​
  • GN Sword Bit
Stored on the GN Shield are six GN Sword Bits,[​12]​​ of which there are 3 different types: A, B and C.[​7]​​ A Bits are the longest, B Bits are medium in length and C Bits are the shortest. All the Bits are usable as remote controlled weaponry, or as hand-held swords as they contain hidden handles.[​7]​​ They also possess many attacking roles in Qan[T]'s arsenal such as attacking individually or forming up as a whole set with the GN Sword V to become either a buster rifle or a buster sword.[​1]​
In addition to offense, the bits can also create a GN Field when positioned together in a circle[​1]​​ and their defensive capabilities are higher than Gadelaza's GN Large Fangs and Zabanya's GN Holster Bits.[​13]​​ The Bits also aid the Quantum System when the system is activated, and in quantum teleportation by grouping into a circular, portal-like formation, using a thick saturation of GN Particles as a gateway.[​3]​​ Overall, the Sword Bits are very versatile and their stats are higher than any other remote weapons.
  • GN Shield
A shield binder on the left side of 00 Qan[T] that is connected to its backpack via the same mechanism as 00 Gundam's "Drive Arm". Other than possessing 00 Qan[T]'s other GN Drive underneath, it also acts as the storage and quick-recharge unit for the GN Sword Bits when they are not actively used. There is also a beam gun with variable output mounted on top of the shield for missile interception purposes.[​1]​​ The shield possesses a panel that reveals the GN Drive unit when opened, large amounts of GN Particles can be released from this point.[​3]​​ Because GN Particle emissions are known to have defensive properties, it is theoretically possible for the shield to use these emissions as defensive measure similar to 00 Gundam, although it is never seen as itself is already a very robust solid shield, capable of blocking shots from ELS Baikal and Volga-Class battle cruisers, if not more powerful shots during the ELS conflict.   
The shield can also swing to the rear of 00 Qan[T] and make the two GN Drives physically connect with each other.[​1]​​ It is in this configuration that the Quantum System is used in order to amplify the power of the machine's Quantum field of communications.[​3]​​ When the Sword Bits are deployed, they are expanded toward both sides of the GN Shield, and simultaneously fly towards the locked-on target.[​7]​

Special Equipment & Features


If the Qan[T] Full Saber had been used, Veda's simulation showed that it have the potential to repel the invasion of Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shape-shifter by itself.[1] However, since this simulation is based on incomplete data about the ELS (missing crucial information such as self-regeneration and ability to learn and adapt in battle), it's unknown how effective the Qan[T] Full Saber would have been in actual combat against the ELS.[1]
