Technical and Historical Notes

 

Neo England's GF13-003NEL John Bull Gundam is a suit built for a champion. Gentle Chapman consecutively wins the 9th through 11th Gundam Fights, which gives Neo England control over the United Colonies Federation from FC 40 through FC 56. Chapman's three time winning streak ends when he's defeated in FC 56 during the 12th Gundam Fight by Master Asia. While the John Bull Gundam is equipped with the standard complement of head vulcans and machine cannons, it's designed to take full advantage of Chapman's sharpshooting skills to bring him back on the path to victory. Its main weapon is a powerful long beam rifle that Chapman can use to accurately snipe his enemy from a distance. Despite his skills and his previous victories, Chapman's body takes a beating from his many battles, and as a result he becomes addicted to stimulants to keep him in focus. His wife Manon decides to secretly help him by cheating during the Gundam Fights. She sets up an elaborate system of fog machines and uses remote-controlled NET6-MS Cushing mobile suits to wear down enemies so that Chapman can finish them off. Neo France's George de Sand is defeated in such a manner, and he warns Neo Japan's Domon Kasshu of the danger. During a battle with Chapman, Domon's GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam nearly falls victim to the same tactics, but Domon is assisted by George and able to defeat Chapman. Despite being disqualified by losing his Gundam's head, Chapman is later allowed to enter the Gundam Fight Finals with another disqualified Fighter, Neo Italy's Michelo Chariot. By this time Chapman has become a mindless minion of the JDG-00X (JDG-009X) Devil Gundam, and his John Bull Gundam can transform into the enormous Grand Gundam, which becomes a menace to both Domon and George.
