Technical and Historical Notes

 

After the conflict with the Innovades ends in 2312, the Earth Sphere Federation discovers hundreds of usable suicide attack GNZ-004 Gaga units about the ship Celestial Being. The units are hastily modified into the GNZ-004/BW Gaga Cannon and put into service with the ESF military during the ELS invasion in 2314. The Gaga Cannons are piloted by Innovades managed by Veda and feature a pair of GN Cannons to the shoulders. The cannons are derived from the rear portion of the GNX-609T GN-XIII's beam rifle. These new weapons are necessary as the assimilation abilities of the ELS through direct contact renders the suicide attack function useless. Before launching, the programming of the nanomachines on the surface of the Gaga Cannon are altered, and as a result, the suit's main color is now blue. This change of color prevents those pilots that were involved in the final battle with the Innovades from seeing it as an enemy unit. Of the hundred plus Gaga Cannon units that are deployed against the ELS, less than 10 percent survive the conflict. Some GNX-803T GN-XIV pilots later report that help from the Gaga Cannons saved them from being destroyed by the ELS.
