Technical and Historical Notes

 

Celestial Being's Gundam Meisters are scattered following a devastating attack by United Nations forces in 2308. Only Tieria Erde remains with the group afterward, and he assists with the development of new mobile suits. The first new Gundam to roll out in 2312 is the GN-008 Seravee Gundam, the successor to his GN-005 Gundam Virtue. Whereas the Gundam Virtue consisted of heavy armor for a lighter mobile suit, the Seravee Gundam turns this concept around by having a lighter mobile suit docking with a heavy one. This lighter suit, the GN-009 Seraphim Gundam, can separate while the Seravee Gundam acts as unmanned attack unit powered by GN Condensers. One of the Seravee Gundam's new features is Face Burst mode, which when activated uses its antennae to improve GN particle flow. Because of the Seravee Gundam's heavy use of GN particles for its weapons, it receives a dramatic performance boost when using Trans-Am as more GN particles are available for its use. However, the Seraphim Gundam is unable to initiate Trans-Am on its own after separating from the Seravee Gundam.

 

The Seravee Gundam inherits the Gundam Virtue's role as an anti-ship/fortress unit and can take out multiple enemies at once with its overwhelming firepower. For close-range self-defense it carries two GN Beam Sabers in its forearms, with an additional four hidden inside its GN Cannons. In addition to the four GN Cannons, the Seravee Gundam is armed with a pair of combining GN Bazookas that can be used in multiple configurations. The two bazookas can combine with each other to create the Double Bazooka, which can open to fire in Burst Mode. The Double Bazooka can connect to a shoulder cannon to form the the Double Bazooka Cannon, or in Burst Mode the Double Bazooka Burst Cannon. The individual bazookas can combine with the shoulder cannons into Buster Cannons. The bazookas can also combine with the shoulder cannons as the Twin Buster Cannon. At the end of the conflict with the Innovators, the Seravee Gundam is heavily damaged while the Seraphim Gundam is destroyed. After merging with the quantum computer Veda, Tieria remodels the Seravee Gundam into the GN-008RE Seravee Gundam II to support the new CB-002 Raphael Gundam.
