}}The '''GX-9900 Gundam X''' (aka '''Gundam X''', '''GX''') is a limited production [[mobile suit]] built by the [[United Nations Earth]], and the titular mobile suit of ''[[After War Gundam X]]''. In this anime series, its pilot include [[Jamil Neate]] and [[Garrod Ran]]. Another slightly different unit appeared in the manga sequel, [[After War Gundam X: Under the Moonlight]], and is piloted by [[Rick Aller]].

The '''GX-9900 Gundam X''' (aka '''Gundam X''', '''GX''', '''X''') is a mass-produced [[mobile suit]] built by the former [[United Nations Earth]] in ''[[After War Gundam X]]''. There are two feature versions of Gundam X. The primary featured one was piloted by [[Garrod Ran]] and later to [[Jamil Neate]]. It was later badly damaged in combat and was repaired and rebuilt as [[GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider]].
 
 
The second one was featured in the manga sequel, [[After War Gundam X: Under the Moonlight]]. The story featured a different Gundam X (adorned with teal colors) and its pilot was [[Rick Aller]].

==Technology & Combat Characteristics==
Built at the height of MS advancement by the [[United Nations Earth|UNE]], the GX-9900 series is one of the most advanced MS of its time. The series was mass-produced and pressed into service near the end of the [[7th Space War]]. After the environmental devastation at the end of the [[7th Space War]], MS development on Earth became stagnant as humanity recovered; Gundam X and its brethren Gundam series remains top-of-the-line after 15 years. Because the UNE no longer existed, there was no regulation over the Gundams and they found new life in the hands of the [[Vulture]]s. It's because of Vulture-use that no two Gundam X are exactly alike.

Built at the height of MS advancement by the [[United Nations Earth|UNE]], the GX-9900 Gundam X is one of the most advanced MS of its time. It was produced in limited numbers and deployed near the end of the [[7th Space War]]. After the environmental devastation at the end of the war, MS development on Earth became stagnant as humanity recovered; Gundam X and its brethren Gundam series thus remains top-of-the-line after 15 years. Because the UNE no longer existed, there was no regulation over the Gundams and they found new life in the hands of the [[Vulture]]s.
   
The unit is purposed as an assault MS. It carries a powerful beam cannon known as the ''Satellite Cannon''. The cannon requires power beyond what Gundam X is capable of on its own, so UNE engineers created the D.O.M.E. (DOME) lunar microwave facility to power it. When the Satellite Cannon is to be used, solar power collected at the facility is sent to the Gundam X via a microwave beam and stored in the large reflector panels mounted on the suit's back in preparation for a particle beam blast powerful enough to wipe out a MS squad with a single shot.

The Gundam X carries a powerful beam cannon known as the ''Satellite Cannon''. The cannon requires power beyond what Gundam X is capable of on its own, so UNE engineers created the D.O.M.E. lunar microwave facility to power it. When the Satellite Cannon is to be used, solar power collected at the facility is sent to the Gundam X via a microwave beam and stored in the large reflector panels mounted on the suit's back for a particle beam blast powerful enough to wipe out a MS squad with a single shot. While the Satellite Cannon is indeed powerful, it requires a lengthy time to charge and fire. Enemy units can take this opportunity to attack Gundam X and disrupt its ability to absorb the microwave beam. During the war, several relay satellites were positioned in Earth's orbit that allowed the microwave beam from D.O.M.E. to be transmitted to any location. However, they were all destroyed or damaged in the war, so this resulted in the Satellite Cannon being usable only when there is a clear line-of-sight to the lunar facility.
   
While the Satellite Cannon is indeed powerful, it also requires a lengthy time to charge-up and fire. Any enemy target with enough speed and combat capability can take such an opportunity to attack Gundam X and disrupt its ability to absorb the microwave beam. Furthermore, the system can only be used when there is a clear line-of-sight to the lunar power facility. Because of this, the cannon tends to be used only as a last resort or for long-ranged assault. UNE engineers equipped Gundam X with a standardized set of weapons: a large beam sword, four torso mounted vulcan guns, and a shield buster rifle (doubling as a shield as well as a beam rifle). This allows Gundam X to be adaptable and versatile in most combat situations. The [[Vulture]]s (who have salvaged Gundam X units) also added optional equipment to the suit, including a holster shield of a buster sheath rifle and a torpedo launcher.
+
Other weapons on the Gundam X include a large beam sword, four chest mounted vulcan guns, and a shield buster rifle. This allows Gundam X to be adaptable and versatile in most combat situations. Both the large beam sword and the shield buster rifle can utilized the stored microwave energy. The [[Vulture]]s (who have salvaged Gundam X units) also added optional equipment to the suit, including a holster shield of a buster sheath rifle and a torpedo launcher. The Gundam X was also designed to exploit the capabilities of its Newtype pilot, but was usable by regular humans as well. A Newtype pilot at the helm can use the [[Flash System]] to mentally command remote controlled drone versions of Gundam X, the [[FX-9900 GX-Bit]]s. These GX-Bits are very similar in design to the Gundam X, and in combat, they are used for coordinated attacks. For regular human pilot, the bits are useless as UNE engineers never created an alternative control system for them to exploit the full potential of Gundam X.
   
The unit was specifically designed to exploit the capabilities of its New-Type pilot, but also usable for regular humans as well. At the helm of a New-Type pilot and using the [[Flash System]], the pilot can mentally communicate and access its remote controlled drone versions of itself, the [[FX-9900 GX-Bit]]s. They're physically exactly the same as Gundam X, but has been refitted to be automated drones for the New-Type pilot to command. The amount of bits the pilot can use is relative to their natural mental powers; the greater their New-Type abilities the greater amount of bits it can use for combat. In combat, the bits are used for coordinated attacks to protect its master and can utilize the [[Flash System]] sequentially to fire its ''Satellite Cannon''. Naturally, for its regular human pilot, the bits are useless as UNE engineers never created an alternative control system for normal pilots to exploit the full potential of Gundam X.
+
The UNE's Gundam series, including Gundam X, has a simple security measure: a ''G-Controller'', a detachable control stick that also serves as the activation key for the mobile suits. However, this is not a strong security measure, as any G-Controller can be used to activate the Gundam. A skilled MS engineer can also hot-wire the system, bypassing the need for a G-Controller to activate the Gundam, and install a new control stick to control the machine.
   
The series has no special abilities to secure itself from being stolen from enemy hands. The only thing required to activate the Gundam is its ''G-Controller''. The ''G-Controller'' is actually part of the series's cockpit control system, but it doubles as a physical key to activate Gundam X. The key system itself isn't a strong security measure, more like a key to a car. Just like a car, it can be hot-wired. A skilled MS engineer can bypass the G-Controller's access key, allowing anyone with access to the cockpit to wield Gundam X, such as Garrod's Gundam. When NUNE (New United Nations Earth) engineers created [[GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X]], they never changed the design of the access controls to the G-Controller. Anyone with a G-Controller from Gundam X can also use it to activate and control ''Gundam Double X''.
+
Garrod's unit, was defeated by [[Carris Nautilus|a Newtype pilot]] utilizing [[RMSN-008 Bertigo]] and then upgraded into the [[GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider]]. The New UNE later created the [[GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X]] as Gundam X's successor.
 
For Garrod's unit, it was unfortunately defeated by a New-Type pilot utilizing [[RMSN-008 Bertigo]]. Its Satellite Cannon was damaged beyond repair and had no components to replace it. To compensate its most powerful weapon, it's equipment was upgraded with salvaged MS technology and redubbed as [[GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider]]. The series would later be succeed by NUNE's [[GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X]].

;*Satellite Cannon
 
;*Satellite Cannon
:The Gundam X's main armament, the satellite cannon is the single most powerful weapon mounted on a mobile suit in the After War universe. The cannon is powered by a microwave beam emitted from the satellite system on the moon, which the GX absorbs through its chest, and stores it in the backpack mounted reflector panels until the cannon is ready to fire. A newtype pilot is required in order to contact the satellite system for firing. After the first use, a newtype is no longer required as the newtype's brainwaves are registered in the system. When in use, the satellite cannon deploys over the GX's right shoulder.

Developed by the [[United Nations Earth]] close to the end of the [[7th Space War]], the GX-9900 Gundam X, along with the other Gundam-type units were used in an attempt to prevent the mass colony drop of the [[Space Revolutionary Army]]. One of the Gundam X units in this battle was piloted by 15-year-old Newtype pilot [[Jamil Neate]], who used his suit and [[FX-9900 GX-Bit]]s to destroy one of the colonies moving towards Earth. This however only triggers the colony drop. At the end of the battle Jamil fights his rival [[Lancerow Dawell]] in his [[MAN-002 Febral]] mobile armor. During this battle Jamil's GX-9900 Gundam X lost its left arm and head,taking [[Jamil Neate]]'s [[Newtype]] abilities with it. This Gundam X is later salvaged by the [[United Nations Earth|New United Nations Earth]] and parts and data of it are used in the construction of the new [[GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X]].

In A.W. 0015, an intact Gundam X was discovered by [[Garrod Ran]] in an abandoned UNE facility, while fleeing with Newtype girl [[Tiffa Adill]] from a mysterious man named [[Reich Anto]] in his [[DT-6800C Daughtress Command]] and two accomplices in a [[DT-6800A Daughtress]] and [[DT-6800W Daughtress Weapon]]. However, Garrod was unable to activate the Gundam due to the G-Controller being missing G-Controller. Remembering that he stole a control stick from [[Jamil Neate]]s cabin safe, Garrod was able to activate the Gundam X and defeat Reich, along with his men.

The Gundam X would remain [[Garrod Ran]]'s private machine, until his first combat encounter with artificial Newtype, [[Cyber Newtype]], [[Carris Nautilus]]'s [[RMSN-008 Bertigo]] resulted in the critical damage of the Gundam. With the MS's Satellite Cannon destroyed beyond repair, [[Kid Salsamille]], Chief Mechanic on board the ''Freeden'', repaired and upgraded the Gundam X into the [[GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider]].

In A.W. 0024, another intact black Gundam X unit was discovered in the Sea of Lorelei, inside a sunken [[Trieste-class]] that has been resting on the ocean floor since the end of the [[7th Space War]], by Vulture pilot [[Rick Aller]] and [[Rosa the Second]]. Much to their surprise, he and Rosa II discover that the original pilot has been kept in a state of suspended animation inside the cockpit of the black Gundam X unit.
+
After the [[8th Space War]], the Gundam X Divider was restored to its original form using parts gathered from various research facilities as well as some newly created parts. The restored Gundam X, dubbed "Unit 3", has its operating efficiency increased by 30% due to a more efficient generator.
   
Due to circumstances the pilot, [[Kai]] had to abandon the Gundam X, during which time Rick Aller took it for his own.

After being damaged by Kai's [[GB-9700 Gundam Belphagor]], this Gundam X was repainted closer to the standard Gundam color scheme by [[Mana]]. The satellite cannon, which Rick was unable to activate, became an optional weapon. Its shield buster rifle got modified into a holster shield, which can separate the buster sheath rifle from shield part. The buster sheath rifle also mounts a beam sword.

*Despite being made around a decade later from the original [[Mobile Suit Gundam]], the GX-9900 sports the ambient (APU?) hum that is identical to those of the [[RX-78-2 Gundam]] when starting up. This makes it one of the few Gundams that have noise when not in motion.

The GX-9900 Gundam X (aka Gundam X, GX) is a limited production mobile suit built by the United Nations Earth, and the titular mobile suit of After War Gundam X. In this anime series, its pilot include Jamil Neate and Garrod Ran. Another slightly different unit appeared in the manga sequel, After War Gundam X: Under the Moonlight, and is piloted by Rick Aller.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Built at the height of MS advancement by the UNE, the GX-9900 Gundam X is one of the most advanced MS of its time. It was produced in limited numbers and deployed near the end of the 7th Space War. After the environmental devastation at the end of the war, MS development on Earth became stagnant as humanity recovered; Gundam X and its brethren Gundam series thus remains top-of-the-line after 15 years. Because the UNE no longer existed, there was no regulation over the Gundams and they found new life in the hands of the Vultures.

The Gundam X carries a powerful beam cannon known as the Satellite Cannon. The cannon requires power beyond what Gundam X is capable of on its own, so UNE engineers created the D.O.M.E. lunar microwave facility to power it. When the Satellite Cannon is to be used, solar power collected at the facility is sent to the Gundam X via a microwave beam and stored in the large reflector panels mounted on the suit's back for a particle beam blast powerful enough to wipe out a MS squad with a single shot. While the Satellite Cannon is indeed powerful, it requires a lengthy time to charge and fire. Enemy units can take this opportunity to attack Gundam X and disrupt its ability to absorb the microwave beam. During the war, several relay satellites were positioned in Earth's orbit that allowed the microwave beam from D.O.M.E. to be transmitted to any location. However, they were all destroyed or damaged in the war, so this resulted in the Satellite Cannon being usable only when there is a clear line-of-sight to the lunar facility.

Other weapons on the Gundam X include a large beam sword, four chest mounted vulcan guns, and a shield buster rifle. This allows Gundam X to be adaptable and versatile in most combat situations. Both the large beam sword and the shield buster rifle can utilized the stored microwave energy. The Vultures (who have salvaged Gundam X units) also added optional equipment to the suit, including a holster shield of a buster sheath rifle and a torpedo launcher. The Gundam X was also designed to exploit the capabilities of its Newtype pilot, but was usable by regular humans as well. A Newtype pilot at the helm can use the Flash System to mentally command remote controlled drone versions of Gundam X, the FX-9900 GX-Bits. These GX-Bits are very similar in design to the Gundam X, and in combat, they are used for coordinated attacks. For regular human pilot, the bits are useless as UNE engineers never created an alternative control system for them to exploit the full potential of Gundam X.

The UNE's Gundam series, including Gundam X, has a simple security measure: a G-Controller, a detachable control stick that also serves as the activation key for the mobile suits. However, this is not a strong security measure, as any G-Controller can be used to activate the Gundam. A skilled MS engineer can also hot-wire the system, bypassing the need for a G-Controller to activate the Gundam, and install a new control stick to control the machine.

Garrod's unit, was defeated by a Newtype pilot utilizing RMSN-008 Bertigo and then upgraded into the GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider. The New UNE later created the GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X as Gundam X's successor.

ArmamentsEdit

  • Satellite Cannon
The satellite cannon is the most powerful weapon mounted on a mobile suit in the After War timeline. It is powered by a microwave beam emitted from the lunar microwave facility, which the GX absorbs through its chest, and stores the energy in the backpack mounted reflector panels until the cannon is ready to fire. A newtype pilot is required to contact the satellite system for the microwave beam. After the first use, a newtype is no longer required as the newtype's brainwaves are registered in the system. When in use, the satellite cannon deploys over the GX's right shoulder.
  • Shield Buster Rifle
The GX's main armament. The Shield Buster Rifle is a unique weapon that can switch between rifle mode and shield mode. To function as a shield, this weapon's toughness is three times that of other mobile suit's firearms and as a result, the shield mode can withstand most projectiles and prolonged exposure to a beam saber. Its rifle mode fires beams strong enough to damage enemy suit. The Shield Buster Rifle can utilize the stored microwave energy and is recharged by plugging into the bottom of the backpack.
  • Large Beam Sword
Stored on the end of the satellite cannon, the Beam Sword is the GX's main close-range weapon. It is more powerful than a standard beam saber as it utilized the stored microwave energy.
  • Breast Vulcan
Four Vulcan Guns built into the chest below the intakes. Used for direct assault in close quarters and is effective for restraining and intimidating enemies at medium range.
  • Shoulder Vulcan
An optional gatling gun type weapon for ground combat, it is mounted on a hardpoint located on the upper left corner of the backpack, and has a wide angle of fire due to the rotatable mount.
  • Holster Shield
Based on the Shield Buster Rifle, it is essentially the shield separated and semi-fixed on the left arm. It is possible to store the Buster Sheath Rifle within the shield. It is equipped on Rick Aller's unit.
  • Geneion Shield
A modified form of the Holster Shield that features a claw arm.
  • Buster Sheath Rifle
Based on the Shield Buster Rifle, it is essentially the rifle portion separated to function solely as a gun. It is equipped on Rick Aller's unit.
  • Buster Sheath Rifle Kai
An improvement of the Buster Sheath Rifle that features two barrels. It can fire two beams with different speeds simultaneously.
  • Hyper Bazooka
A weapon capable of firing torpedoes and a wide variety of other ammunition.

Special Equipment & FeaturesEdit

HistoryEdit

Developed by the United Nations Earth close to the end of the 7th Space War, the GX-9900 Gundam X, along with the other Gundam-type units were used in an attempt to prevent the mass colony drop of the Space Revolutionary Army. One of the Gundam X in this battle was piloted by 15-year-old Newtype pilot Jamil Neate, who used his suit and the FX-9900 GX-Bits to destroy one of the colonies moving towards Earth. This however only triggers the colony drop. At the end of the battle, Jamil fights his rival Lancerow Dawell in his MAN-002 Febral mobile armor. During this battle, Jamil's Gundam X lost its left arm and head, taking Jamil Neate's Newtype abilities with it. This Gundam X is later salvaged by the New United Nations Earth and parts and data of it are used in the construction of the new GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X.

In A.W. 0015, an intact Gundam X was discovered by Garrod Ran in an abandoned UNE facility, while fleeing with Newtype girl Tiffa Adill from a mysterious man named Reich Anto in his DT-6800C Daughtress Command and two accomplices in a DT-6800A Daughtress and DT-6800W Daughtress Weapon. However, Garrod was unable to activate the Gundam due to the G-Controller being missing. Remembering that he stole a control stick from Jamil Neates cabin safe, Garrod was able to activate the Gundam X and defeat Reich, along with his men.

The Gundam X would remain Garrod Ran's private machine, until his first combat encounter with Cyber Newtype, Carris Nautilus's RMSN-008 Bertigo resulted in the critical damage of the Gundam. With the MS's Satellite Cannon destroyed beyond repair, Kid Salsamille, Chief Mechanic on board the Freeden, repaired and upgraded the Gundam X into the GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider.

After the 8th Space War, the Gundam X Divider was restored to its original form using parts gathered from various research facilities as well as some newly created parts. The restored Gundam X, dubbed "Unit 3", has its operating efficiency increased by 30% due to a more efficient generator.

In A.W. 0024, another intact black Gundam X unit was discovered in the Sea of Lorelei, inside a sunken Trieste-class that was resting on the ocean floor since the end of the 7th Space War, by Vulture pilot Rick Aller and Rosa the Second. Much to their surprise, he and Rosa II discovered that the original pilot had been kept in a state of suspended animation inside the cockpit of the black Gundam X unit. Due to circumstances the pilot, Kai had to abandon the Gundam X, during which time Rick Aller took it for his own.

After being damaged by Kai's GB-9700 Gundam Belphagor, this Gundam X was repainted closer to the standard Gundam color scheme by Mana. The satellite cannon, which Rick was unable to activate, became an optional weapon. Its shield buster rifle got modified into a holster shield, which could separate the buster sheath rifle from shield part. The buster sheath rifle also mounted a beam sword.
