The MSW-004 Gundam [Kestrel] Maneuver Exterior is a variant of the MSW-004 Gundam [Kestrel]. It appears in the Advance of Zeta: The Traitor to Destiny series of light novels. It is piloted by Van Asiliaino.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

After the MSW-004 Gundam [Kestrel]'s laser rocket units were damaged in battle with the RX-136-1 Rakshasa, it was equipped with four shoulder-mounted "Break Binders" equipped with external thrusters and beam guns to compensate for the loss of maneuverability. Although the AMBAC effect produced by the binders improves mobility, the increased weight reduces stability during combat maneuvers. The backpack is equipped with a standard thermonuclear rocket engine rather than laser rockets.

Armament

  • Vulcan Gun
  • Beam Saber
Two beam sabers are stored on the Kestrel's backpack. The beam saber rack replaces the wing binders of the [Gullinbursti].
  • Beam Rifle
A specialized high-power beam rifle designed for the MSW-004 Gundam, it is the most powerful beam-type weapon of the suit. Four E-pack cartridges can be stored on the side of the Kestrel's waist.
  • Beam Emitter
A beam blade emitter is mounted on each of the Kestrel's shoulders, forearms, knees, and toes, for a total of eight. The beam emitters on the shoulders are mounted on articulated arms and can also function as beam guns. Due to the high generator output of the Kestrel, all of the beam blades are able to be deployed simultaneously. The beam emitters on the forearms also supply power to the Beam Madu
  • Beam Madu
A a small shield attached to the forearm of the Kestrel and connected to the beam emitter. It is equipped with three beam sabers mounted on the front. While the beam sabers are primarily intended to intercept the beam blades of enemy mobile suit's they can also be used to attack.
  • Break Binder
Two Break Binders are mounted on each shoulder, and each binder is armed with a beam gun. The Break Binder was originally developed as a wired psycommu weapon but was modified for use by a normal pilot so that it could ejected and guided manually via controls in the cockpit. As a result, only one can be operated at a time.
