Technical and Historical Notes

 

Throughout the course of the Bloody Valentine War, ZAFT creates several reconnaissance versions of the ZGMF-1017 GINN, including the ZGMF-LRR704B GINN Long Range Reconnaissance Type and the ZGMF/TAR-X! GINN Tactical Air Reconnaissance Type. Unlike the Long Range Recon Type, the Tactical Air Recon Type is designed as close-range stealth infiltration unit. Stealth infiltration is possible through the use of Mirage Colloid technology, which ZAFT reverse engineers from the stolen Earth Alliance mobile suit GAT-X207 Blitz Gundam. However, unlike the Blitz Gundam, the Tactical Air Recon Type can only use Mirage Colloid when standing still. When in motion, brief glimpses of the suit can be seen by the naked eye. The Tactical Air Recon Type's sole armament includes an experimental close combat beam assault rifle, which is fitted with a long spike. At least one Tactical Air Recon Type participates in Operation Spit Break, the failed ZAFT attack on the Alliance's JOSH-A headquarters in Alaska. Another unit infiltrates the Junk Guild landship Lesseps to retrieve a rare metal ore, but it's destroyed by Lowe Guele's MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame.
