Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following the loss of its Core Fighter, the XM-X2 (F97) Crossbone Gundam X2 is upgraded on the Jupitris 9 using the technology of the Jupiter Empire. Because the theft of the Core Fighter also results in the loss of its combat computer, all work has to be done using combat data the Empire has collected in its battles against the Crossbone Vanguard. Though the X-thrusters are enlarged and given extra thrusters, their performance is no better and thus the X2 Kai can be seen as equivalent to the original version. This can be attributed to the differences in the Jupiter Empire's technology as well as their efforts to reproduce a machine with which they weren't familiar. The loss of the Core Fighter has another more obvious disadvantage; in a final showdown with Kincaid Nau's XM-X1 (F97) Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai, the X2 Kai is critically damaged and pilot Zabine Chareux is unable to escape its destruction.
