In mid CE 71, ZAFT creates a series of advanced mobile suits based on technology reverse-engineered from the captured Earth Alliance G Project suits. Like their EA predecessors, the ZAFT Gundams are armed with advanced beam weaponry and protected by Phase Shift armor. However, an additional technology is incorporated as well: the Neutron Jammer Canceller, which counters the effects of the ubiquitous N-Jammers and allows these suits to be powered by nuclear reactors. This gives them almost limitless combat endurance, even with Phase Shift armor activated.
One of these suits is the ZGMF-X11A Regenerate. The Regenerate was the third of the series, and unlike the previous two units, the ZGMF-X09A Justice and ZGMF-X10A Freedom, it is incompatible with the METEOR support system. Instead, the enormous Regenerate is derived primarily from the GAT-X303 Aegis, and can transform into a mobile armor attack mode. The Regenerate is armed with an extremely powerful hyper impulse beam cannon, capable of destroying a space fortress with a single shot, and four long beam swords. However, its most unique feature is the ability to "regenerate" damaged parts in mid-battle by ejecting them and receiving replacements from its mothership. In addition, the cockpit is located in its backpack, which mounts a pair of lightwave pulse thrusters similar to those on the METEORs. The backpack can detach from Regenerate and dock with other mobile suits, seizing control of them in the process. This "regeneration" process is later put into spirit on ZGMF-X56S Impulse.
This mobile suit is piloted by deformed ZAFT Special Forces pilot Ash Gray, and is badly damaged in a battle against the MBF-P02 Astray Red Frame and the MBF-P03 Astray Blue Frame Second L . The battle ended with critical damage to Regenerate's control and thruster system, causing it to drift endlessly into Alliance space, where both it and its pilot, Ash Gray, is persumably captured shortly after.
