The OZ-07AMS Aries (エアリーズ Earīzu?) is a mass-produced aerial mobile suit introduced in the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing series.

Technology & Combat Characteristics[]

The OZ-07AMS Aries was developed for aerial combat and is capable of high-speed flight thanks to jet engines in its large, back-mounted flight unit. It adopts a simplified transformation system where it changes into flight mode by folding its legs into the thighs. Its wings have a number of hardpoints for mounting weapons, which can also be manually fired by hand. While the OZ-06MS Leo can be fitted with an optional flight unit, this is only suitable for a short distance and has inferior flight capabilities compared to the Aries'. Outside of its high-speed flight capabilities, the Aries also has more powerful weapons than the standard equipped Leo. However, it has inferior power and armor capabilities. The Aries is unopposed in aerial combat until the appearance of the Gundams in A.C.195. Later in the same year, OZ began phasing out Aries and replacing it with the more powerful mobile doll OZ-02MD Virgo.

Armament[]

  • Chain Rifle
A rapid-firing projectile weapon that can be mounted on the wings of the Aries or hand carried.
  • Missile Pod
An optional weapon that fires missiles from four launch tubes at the front, it can be mounted on the wings of the Aries and fired directly or used as a handheld ranged weapon.
  • Beam Cannon
A large, long range weapon originally used by the OZ-12SMS Taurus. It fires a powerful beam that can destroy even Gundanium armor, though two Aries are needed to carry the cannon.
  • Buster Rifle
The main weapon of the XXXG-01W Wing Gundam. Its energy cartridges allow it to fire three powerful beam shots, each comparable in power to a battleship's main guns and capable of destroying a small group of mobile suits and ships. While piloting an Aries, Quatre Raberba Winner was given the Buster Rifle to use against OZ's OZ-02MD Virgos, enabling him to eliminate them in a single shot.

Special Equipment & Features[]

  • Wing Hardpoints
The wings of the Aries have hardpoints to mount weapons such as missile pods, chain rifle, etc.

History[]

Developed around the same time as the OZ-06MS Leo, the Aries entered mass production in A.C. 177 and served as the primary aerial force of the world's armies for nearly twenty years. In A.C. 195, the Gundams arrived on Earth and proved to be much superior to most of the mobile suits used by the United Earth Sphere Alliance and OZ, including the Aries. Later in the same year, OZ began to replace the Aries and other mobile suits with the new and more powerful mobile doll, OZ-02MD Virgo. Despite this, the Aries remained in use and was operated by various parties, including the splinter Treize Faction within OZ.
