Technical and Historical Notes

 

The AEU-05 AEU Hellion Capture Equipment Type is a special Hellion variant designed to capture Celestial Being's Gundams. To accomplish this, it is equipped with a pair of electromagnetic shields. The shields are attached to the suit's hips via movable joints and during flight, the shields are also attached to the attachment points on the shoulder. The suit's main thrusters are enlarged due to the large shields. As the size of the shields reduces the suit's mobility, its flight capability has become simply a means of movement. In 2308, the three superpowers set a trap for the Gundams in the Taklimakan Desert. Four of these variants are deployed together to surround and "capture" the GN-005 Gundam Virtue in the force field produced by the shields. Although initially successful, the tide turns on the superpowers after the unexpected arrival of Celestial Being's Gundam Throne mobile suits.
