Technical and Historical Notes


The GNX-704T Ahead is a mobile suit developed by A-LAWS and based on the original GNX-603T GN-X. Its performance is believed to surpass that of Celestial Being's third generation Gundams. Because of the desire for higher performance, the basic structure of the Ahead resembles the Gundams more than the GN-X. The Ahead's GN Drive parts are similar to the Gundams, but they are covered by armor due to the negative feelings citizens have about the Gundams. The Ahead is designed by engineers from the former Human Reform League to be the new standard for mobile suits equipped with GN Drive Taus. Thus it is designed to be versatile for all combat situations, and variants like the GNX-704T/AC Ahead Sakigake and GNX-704T/SP Ahead Smultron are created to develop future mass production variants. The Ahead's GN Drive Tau is supplemented by a sub-battery in providing electrical energy. As the output increases on future GN Drive Taus, this feature is omitted from later suits.


The Ahead's main armament is a GN Beam Rifle that has firepower and range superior to the GN-X's. The rifle is fitted with GN Condensers to conserve the suit's GN particles. The GN Submachine Gun serves as the base of the GN Beam Rifle and has lower power but a higher rate of fire, making it sufficient for battles with non-GN Drive equipped suits. The Ahead also has a container storing antipersonnel automatons that are powered by GN Condensers. Other armaments include GN Vulcan Guns, GN Beam Sabers, a GN Shield, an NGN Bazooka and a GN Missile Container. The Ahead's hip blocks can function as weapon racks to store additional weapons. The Ahead is regularly used in 2312 during A-LAWS' battles against the reconstituted Celestial Being.
