Technical and Historical Notes

 

One of the biggest factors in the Seventh Space War is the existence of Newtypes. In addition to their increased senses and natural combat prowess, the defeat of a Newtype results in a major blow to one side's morale. As the United Nations Earth develops its new Gundam mobile suits, a new concept comes to them: a Newtype mobile suit specifically designed to battle other Newtypes. To that end, they construct the GB-9700 Gundam Belphagor. The UNE focuses entirely on making the Belphagor a high performance machine regardless of the cost, resulting in a devastating (if expensive) machine. The Belphagor's armament consists of a pair of shoulder-mounted claws, which can be used as short-range striking and grappling weapons, as well as mounting large beam swords. The knees mount atomic scissors as a "surprise" weapon, as well as installing beam guns in them. The Belphagor's chest panels hide a set of sonic smasher cannons for powerful long-range attacks. For the purpose of its anti-Newtype role, the Belphagor is given a multitude of heat wires in its wrists, intended to shoot down enemy bits.

 

Like its brethren, the Belphagor uses a Flash system; however, its system is redesigned to give the pilot improved performance at the cost of the ability to control bit MS. However, the Belphagor still has its flaws. The extreme G-forces put on the pilot are not adequately compensated for, making it very dangerous for the pilot to fly at high speeds. To this end, the potential Newtype pilots for the Belphagor are seen as little more than expendable parts. Though the Belphagor's service records are unknown, it's said that their participation in the ground battle prevents the Space Revolutionary Army from launching a full-scale invasion of Earth. After the war, the Belphagor is used as the basis for the NRX-0013 Gundam Virsago and NRX-0015 Gundam Ashtaron, the personal mobile suits of the Frost brothers. In AW 0024, one Belphagor is found and activated by a mysterious Newtype named Kai, who turns on the Vultures who rescued him for reasons unknown.
