Technology & Combat Characteristics
The xvm-dgc Khronos is a next-generation Vagan X-Rounder mobile suit and is painted in Desil Galette's personal color. The sister machine of the xvm-zgc Zeydra, the Khronos has higher firepower and is specialized for bombardment. It also has heavier armor on its legs, forearms and shoulders than the Zeydra. To compensate for the added weight caused by the armor, its thrusters have been enhanced, therefore the Khronos is still a highly mobile machine. It is armed with two Khronos Cannons, two Beam Vulcans/Beam Sabers, the Beam Buster and a handheld Khronos Gun. The Khronos also has the ability to remote control other friendly mobile suits.
- Beam Buster
- Mounted in the chest, this powerful beam cannon's destructive power exceeds that of a standard beam rifle and can destroy a few mobile suits in one shot.
- Beam Vulcan/Beam Saber
- Mounted in both hands, the beam vulcans are the standard ranged weapon for most Vagan mobile suits. These beam weapons have a high rate of fire and are moderately powerful, capable of destroying small vehicles, buildings, and even mobile suits. The beam vulcans can also generate a beam saber each for close range combat, allowing Vagan mobile suits to switch quickly from ranged combat to close range combat. The beam sabers can easily cut through most mobile suits.
- Khronos Cannon
- A pair of beam cannons mounted on each side of the backpack. They can destroy an enemy mobile suit and a group of missiles in one shot.
- Khronos Gun
- A hand-carried, multi-barrel beam gun wielded by the Khronos. It has a high rate of fire, like the beam vulcans, and can generate a beam saber for close combat.
For the history of the Khronos, please see Desil Galette's page.
- It is speculated by fans that the "dgc" in the Khronos' designation stands for "Desil Galette Custom".
- The Khronos is the first Vagan mobile suit in the anime to not feature tail or tail-like fixture.
- The Khronos' name maybe a reference to Chronos, the personification of time.
