The ovm-pp Golden Gurdolin Perfect is a refined version of the earlier xvx-ooo Gurdolin. The Gurdolin is the creation of the Simplification & Streaming program, an initiative that aims to simplify mobile suit components and increase the efficiency of the assembly and maintenance process. Commonly known as GGP, the unit replaces the arms on the original design with wing attachments that change the unit’s center of gravity and increases its turning performance. The wings also contain multi-directional missile launchers that allow it to capture and destroy enemy units in close combat. Using a newly developed technique, GGP is coated with multiple layers of special anti-beam gold coating, increasing its anti-beam defense. Production lines are established for GGP and if it had been widely deployed, it might've made a huge difference in the war's outcome. However, until the end of the war, only 30 units have been produced and none are deployed in battle.
After the war, these units are used in civil engineering, weather surveillance patrols of the Mars atmosphere and other related activities. Flexible use of this machine is due to its excellent performance and its ability to use different option parts; all these indirectly prove its combat potential. As most of the developers in the post war civilian mobile suit program are from the Gurdolin and the Golden Gurdolin Perfect development team, it seems that the final result of the Simplification & Streaming program is in fulfilling the needs of civilians.
