Technical and Historical Notes

 

The AGE-1R Gundam AGE-1 Razor is developed by the AGE System as an evolution of the AGE-1S Gundam AGE-1 Spallow. The Razor wear resolves the low resistance of the Spallow's Shiguru in two ways: by enlarging the blade to accommodate a multilayer structure, and equipping multiple blades so that Flit can keep fighting even if one of them wears out. Although the blades can combine to form a boomerang-like weapon, they don't return when thrown. The Razor is a typical AGE System design as it doesn't take into account the pilot’s skill. Unlike the Spallow, Razor has the same amount of thrusters and balancers as the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal. After some reevaluation, the AGE System concludes that increasing the numbers of thrusters and/or other such devices isn't the best method to push the Gundam’s output performance to the physical limit. Instead, it's better to use the latest engineering data to improve the suit's mobility. In other words, it wants the pilot to use the inertia generated by the heavy equipment on the suit's body to balance it.

 

As a result, there's a huge difference in the method of operation between the Spallow and the Razor. Whereas the Spallow achieves its sharp cutting ability from its lightweight body and added thrusters, the Razor, which handles a razor blade with huge mass, achieves such profound slashing force or striking force by using inertial force of the blade itself. Due to that, extremely advanced control skills are required of the pilot. For example, it may be impossible for the Razor to fly straight if one doesn't have data processing abilities like that of an X-Rounder. Flit uses the Razor in battle against Dole Frost's xvm-dfc Wiegel.
