The RGE-G2100 Clanche is a limited production mobile suit featured in the third generation of the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam AGE. Its known pilots include Jonathan Gistab, Derek Jackrow and Shanalua Mullen.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RGE-G2100 Clanche is a next generation limited production mobile suit developed from the RGE-G2000X Prototype Clanche. It uses a simplified version of the AGE-2 Gundam AGE-2 Normal's transformation mechanism that is fully automated and supported by a dedicated OS.[1] Just like the Gundam AGE-2, the Clanche is designed as a high speed combat unit, able to transform into Flight Mode which has a greater flight speed than its MS mode.

It has higher mobility compared to the RGE-G1500 Adele Mk-II which was developed around the same time, but is less versatile as its Flight Mode restricted the weapons it could carry.[1] Furthermore, many pilots are reluctant to pilot the Clanche as it requires a certain degree of training for proper use of each form.[1] Thus, it was produced in limited numbers compared to the Adele Mk-II.[1] It is armed with a DODS rifle, three beam sabers, two beam vulcans, and a shield.

Armaments

  • Beam Saber
The standard close range armament for most Federation mobile suits. The beam saber is a sword-like beam weapon that can easily cut through most mobile suits. A beam saber can be emitted directly from each of Clanche's wrists, while another handheld beam saber is stored in the shield.
  • Beam Vulcan
A pair of head-mounted beam weapons, they have a high rate of fire but little power and are generally ineffective against advanced Vagan mobile suits. However, they are ideal for shooting down lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • DODS Rifle
The DODS Rifle is the standard ranged combat weapon for most Federation mobile suits. The Clanche's DODS Rifle is a mass produced version of the AGE-2 Gundam AGE-2 Normal's Hyper DODS Rifle.
  • Shield
The Clanche's basic defensive armament, it is usually mounted on the left forearm. It can defend against both beam and physical attacks.

History

The Clanche is a production version of the AGE-2 Gundam AGE-2 Normal and one of the Earth Federation's most advanced frontline mobile suits in A.G.164. During Vagan's full-scale invasion of Earth, the Abis Team that consisted of four Clanche units piloted by Jonathan, Shanalua, David, and Odeck, and led by Seric Abis in the RGE-G2100C Clanche Custom are one of several MS squads deployed during the attack on Olivernotes. During the battle, David was killed when his unit was destroyed by Vagan forces. The Clanche also appeared in many major battles such as at Rostroulan and Luna Base. There also exists a variant developed for the reconnaissance role.[2]
