Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the tumultuous events of the Gryps Conflict, the Earth Federation has become dominated by the anti-spacenoid Titans, who rule through fear and intimidation. At a major turning point, AEUG leader Quattro Bajeena (aka Char Aznable) breaks into the Federation's national assembly at Dakar and denounces the Titans before the world. Learning the truth, the Federation quickly moves to support the AEUG and oppose the Titans. During this shift in alliances, the Federation begins supplying the AEUG and its terrestrial branch, Karaba, with new weapons to fight the Titans and Axis Zeon. One such weapon is the MAK-005S Gaplant Custom developed at the Augusta Newtype Lab. Based on the ORX-005 Gaplant, the Gaplant Custom is a high-performance mobile armor capable of both space and atmospheric combat. Instead of a transforming mobile suit, the Gaplant Custom is developed as a rapid-strike mobile armor that retains the basic shape of its predecessor's mobile armor mode. The wing-mounted beam cannons of the original Gaplant are replaced with diffuse beam cannons, which are supplemented with the addition of vulcan guns and missile launchers. Since it's not intended for melee combat, the Gaplant Custom focuses on making rapid, powerful strikes against enemies. Because Karaba already has the Z plus series of mobile suits, the Gaplant Custom's production is limited to 20 units and used primarily to attack enemy units as they enter the atmosphere.
