Technical and Historical Notes

 

The GAT-01A1+AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel Dagger is a unit designed for ace pilots who have a special spatial awareness. The AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel Striker that docks with the GAT-01A1 Dagger features wire-guided Gunbarrels similar to those used by the mobile armor TS-MA2Mod.00 Moebius Zero. Because the spatial awareness required to control the Gunbarrels is a rare ability, only pilots such as Morgan Chevalier and Mu La Flaga are capable of using them. One unit is used by Morgan during and after the Bloody Valentine War. Late in the war, Morgan duels with Canard Pars' CAT1-X1/3 Hyperion Gundam in lunar orbit. At the end of that battle, Morgan's Gunbarrel Striker is destroyed. After the war, Morgan fights a former comrade, Edward Harrelson, who defects from the Earth Alliance.
