The GNZ-004/BW Gaga Cannon is a variant of the GNZ-004 Gaga introduced in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie: A wakening of the Trailblazer.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Following the defeat of the Innovators, the Earth Sphere Federation recovered the remaining 100+ Gaga units that were still functional and stored them in the factory within the captured Celestial Being.[1] In 2314, these machines were modified into the GNZ-004/BW Gaga Cannons by the Earth Sphere Federation Forces (ESF Forces) for combat against the alien lifeform known as "Extraterrestial Living-metal Shape-shifter (ELS)", and were piloted by Innovades managed by Veda.[1] As the ELS have the ability to assimilate its enemy upon contact, the original Gaga's suicide attack became pointless, so the Gaga Cannon was equipped with an additional pair of GN Cannons on its back.[1]

In addition, the nanomachines on the surface of the mobile suit were reprogrammed, resulting in the Gaga Cannon's color scheme changing to that of the ESF Forces colors.[1] When fighting in a battlefield saturated with GN Particles, the ability to visually identify allied units from the enemies are important.[1] If the Gaga Cannon retained the color scheme of the original Gaga, the ESF Forces' mobile suit pilots that had participated in the previous battle against the Innovators might mistook them as enemies.[1] While the ELS managed to assimilate some of the Gaga Cannons and also created mimics of the mobile suit, these machines were in a silvery, metallic color, and thus they can be easily differentiated from the ESF Forces' Gaga Cannons.[1]

Armaments

  • GN Vulcan
A pair of rapid-fire, low-powered beam guns mounted in the chest. The GN Vulcans are used for restricting the movements of enemy units, and to assist in the assault of enemy ships and bases.
  • GN Cannon
Converted from the rear end of the GN-XIII's GN Beam Rifle, a pair of GN Cannons are mounted on the back of the Gaga Cannon.

Special Equipment & Features

History

In the final battle against the ELS, more than 100 of these machines were deployed, but it is said that less than 10% of them returned.
