Technical and Historical Notes

 

When the five scientists who designed the XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero in AC 180 go their separate ways, each of them takes copies of the plans for their original Gundam design. Master O, who goes into hiding in the L5 colonies, designs and build his own Gundam based on their original plans. With the support and blessing of the powerful Long clan, Master O builds the XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam in anticipation of Operation Meteor. However, the Shenlong's intended pilot, Mei Lan Long, is killed during an encounter with UESA and OZ forces in AC 194. Her betrothed, Chang Wufei, takes her place as the Shenlong's pilot. Not wanting to use the Gundam as a tool for genocide, Wufei refuses to take part in Operation Meteor's planned colony drop, instead taking his Gundam (named "Nataku" after Mei Lan's nickname in her memory) to Earth to fight OZ's forces directly in a bid for revenge. Constructed with nearly-indestructible gundanium alloy, "Gundam 05" (as it's codenamed by OZ's forces) is armed with the standard head vulcan guns, but being a mobile suit for close combat, it carries a beam glaive as a primary weapon. "Shen long" is Chinese for "god dragon," and the Shenlong Gundam lives up to its name, as its other main weapon is its dragon fang, composed of the flexibly long right arm and a dragon head claw. The dragon fang arm works effectively both as a grappling and a striking weapon, and it also mounts a pair of flamethrowers, giving the dragon a little more "bite." The Shenlong also carries a shenlong shield that doubles as a good throwing weapon. With the same deadly ferocity as his own martial arts skills, Wufei uses his Nataku as his sword of justice against OZ.
