Technology & Combat Characteristics
Neo Iraq's entry for the 13th Gundam Fight, the Scud Gundam is an artillery type Mobile Fighter which focuses on long ranged combat. It normally fights in long distances, using two of its Beam Cannons on its shoulders and a huge amount of missiles equipped all over its body. However it has several flaws on the Mobile Fighter's fighting style as it can't engage in close combat due to its lack of melee weaponry.
- Vulcan Gun
- Shoulder Beam Cannon
- Missile Launcher
The Scud Gundam makes a brief appearance in the second episode, being destroyed in only one blow from the GF13-006NA Gundam Maxter during the introduction.
In the Super-Class! Mobile Fighter G Gundam manga, this battle is lengthened and expanded the confrontation between the Scud Gundam and the Gundam Maxter. It demonstrated that, despite the machine's incredible ordinance, it was of no match against the Maxter, who easily closed in and punched the Gundam's head off, emerging unscathed.
- The name is derived from the Scud missiles, which the Soviet Union prominently provided to it's ally Iraq and were used in the Iran-Iraq War and the Gulf War.
- Scud Gundam losing badly to Gundam Maxter referenced the Gulf War which occurred two years before G-Gundam aired.
