Following the debut of Celestial Being and its advanced Gundams in 2307, Union pilot Graham Aker requests upgrades to his SVMS-01 Union Flag to put it on more equal footing with the Gundams. Professor Ralph Eifman, developer of the Flag, complies by creating the SVMS-01E in just one week. Upgrades include a new high output flight unit which is difficult to control, lower hydrogen fuel payload and lighter armor, all of which allow Graham's custom unit to achieve twice the speed of a normal Flag. The anti-G limiter is removed to allow high speed flight, but as a result Graham experiences up to 12Gs of acceleration during high speed turns. The suit's black color is due to the anti-beam coating, and its joints have also been strengthened. As the commander's unit for the anti-Gundam task force, the suit is also equipped with enhanced communication capabilities. Because Graham is left-handed, besides having the linear rifle and defense rod in opposite arms from that of the standard unit, the suit's fire control system software has also been rewritten.
The suit's armaments include a trial type linear rifle equipped with a large battery and two different firing modes that can use different bullets. The first mode is for rapid fire, but it has low power. The second uses more electricity to increases the speed and power of the shot. In turn, the charging time before firing has also increased. As demonstrated in the unit's first fight with the GN-001 Gundam Exia, the rapid fire mode is for distraction and allows the key bullet from the second firing mode to hit. This rifle is later exchanged for the trident striker. Due to its effectiveness in combat, Graham's custom unit serves as the blueprint for the SVMS-01O Over Flags assigned to the pilots of his anti-Gundam task force.
