Technology & Combat Characteristics
A special Gaplant design for supersonic penetration via a ballistic trajectory tactic, similar to Intercontinental ballistic missile. A ballistic trajectory involves launching from the surface and temporarily escaping the atmosphere. After re-entering the atmosphere, the machine follows a parabolic course to its target point while maintaining the vast acceleration obtained from the effects of gravity. The base machine of Fiver is Gaplant in mobile armor mode with new sensor installed and beam cannon removed, the base Gaplant would be combined with addition parts. The backpack unit contains three generators of various sizes, and connects directly to the Gaplant's own back thrusters. A nose unit is attached to the front of the machine, and a heat-resistant field unit with coolant gas emitters is attached to its underside. Two defensive binders are attached to the backpack unit and the Gaplant's arms. Each defensive binder contains one I-field generator and ten beam cannons, whose protective covers are blown off prior to use. Since the I-field generators consume virtually all of the machine's energy output, the beam cannons are powered by energy packs. The lower section of each binder houses a rack of twelve energy packs for this purpose, and this section terminates in a thruster and propellant tank. Each binder can also carry one escort mobile suit, and the upper section of each binder has a manipulator arm to hold these mobile suits in place. The upper and lower sections can be opened up so that the diffuse beam cannons all face forward.
