Technical and Historical Notes

 

Based on the Gundam Thrones series, the GNX-509T Throne Varanus serves as the prototype for the GNX-603T GN-X. Despite having similar silhouette as the GN-X, the Throne Varanus is built using many Gundam Thrones parts. The suit is designed to be easier to operate, and one of its major differences with the Gundam Thrones is the presence of four protruding GN Particle Generators on the shoulders and hips that are designed to simplify the control of the suit. Thanks to these devices, pilots unfamiliar with the control of GN Drive-equipped suits, which use GN particles to help control the suit, can get used to the suit in a very short time. Like the Gundam Thrones, the Throne Varanus is powered by a GN Drive Tau. However, as the suit is not installed with the starter mechanism for the Drive, it requires external activation before use like the GN-X. Like the GN-X, the Throne Varanus' cockpit is in the waist. The Throne Varanus' head is fitted with a prototype sensor on the forehead that is based on the GNW-002 Gundam Throne Zwei's head. The suit's head is large compared to the GN-X's, as it has not been optimized yet. The hip-mounted GN particle generators are of a different design from those on the shoulder and are similar in design to those used by the Team Trinities' mothership and the Turbulenz equipment. This design is not used by the GN-X due to their complexity.

 

The suit's weapons also use many Gundam Thrones parts. The GN Long Barrel Beam Rifle is a prototype of the GN-X's GN Long Barrel Beam Rifle. The rifle's sensor, GN particle supply system, etc, all use the same parts as the GNW-001 Gundam Throne Eins. The GN Chain Gun is an improvement of the Gundam Thrones' GN Handgun. The weapon has low firepower but can be used in a wide variety of situations, like restricting the opponent's movement. The GN-X uses similar weaponry in the form of GN Vulcans. The GN Defense Rod is a combination of the GN Field with a defense rod. The defense rod is used widely by the AEU and Union, so many pilots are skilled at using them. The GN-X's shield is an improvement of this defensive equipment, and can be used like a standard shield. The suit's GN Shield is identical as the one used by the Throne Eins. Besides functioning as a shield, it also serve as a GN Condenser, supplying the GN Long Barrel Beam Rifle with the required GN particles. In order to mass produce the Throne Varanus, Alejandro Corner invites Deborah Galiena to be the suit's test pilot. Galiena is well versed in the control system of various factions' suits, as her job involves inspecting each faction's military equipment. It is thanks to her operational data and feedback that the GN-X can be used easily by pilots from various nations.
