Technical and Historical Notes

 

When the XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam is captured and destroyed by OZ's forces in AC 195, the extremely durable gundanium-made remains of that mobile suit are taken to OZ's lunar base and mobile suit factory for storage. The five scientists who built the Gundams plaguing OZ are also at the lunar base, captured and forced to develop new mobile suit technology to secure OZ's rule over Earth and the space colonies. Despite their apparent "cooperation," however, the scientists also begin rebuilding the Shenlong in secret, preparing for the day when captured Gundam pilot Wufei Chang can return to the battlefield. That opportunity comes when the Romefeller Foundation - the political force behind OZ - becomes split over a number of issues, and the "Treize Faction" of OZ attacks the lunar base, which at the time is still under the control of Romefeller loyalists. During the chaos, Wufei manages to escape, taking his rebuilt XXXG-01S2 Altron Gundam to continue fighting on his own. At that time, the Altron is only 70 percent complete; later repairs and field upgrades allow Wufei to complete the resurrected mobile suit, bringing it up to its full combat potential. The improvements given to the new XXXG-01S2 Altron Gundam are very dramatic. The old beam glaive is replaced with a double-ended twin beam trident, and both arms are outfitted with the highly effective dragon fang extending arms and claws (hence the Altron name, taken from the Chinese "ertou long" or "two-headed dragon"). Along with increased mobility, the Altron also mounts a pair of beam cannons on a stinger tail, giving it effective ranged firepower for space combat (as well as being able to cover its rear). These upgrades turn the resurrected "Nataku" into an incredible force, allowing Wufei to continue his fight for justice against oppression.
