Swordmaster is the early design of the GW-9800 Gundam Airmaster's upgrade plan. It appears in After War Gundam X Hyper Guide.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Designed for melee combat, Swordmaster is named after its new primary weapon, a large electromagnetic saber mounted on each arm, which also come equipped with small round shields. This equipment greatly improved the close combat ability of the Airmaster.

However, the Swordmaster lost much of its prowess in ranged combat, with only head vulcans remaining. The Swordmaster does have its nose-mounted vulcan guns replaced by beam cannons, but despite packing great firepower, they can't be use in MS mode.

One of many early upgrade designs for the GW-9800 Gundam Airmaster by Kid Salsamille, the Swordmaster was design to allow Airmaster to engage in melee combat. Kid later abandoned the design in favor of GW-9800-B Gundam Airmaster Burst.
