Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the 7th Space War, the United Nations Earth develops and deploys three advanced new mobile suit designs to counter the Space Revolutionary Army. One of these new units is the GT-9600 Gundam Leopard, and like its brethren GW-9800 Gundam Airmaster and GX-9900 Gundam X, it's equipped with a "flash system," enabling a Newtype pilot to mentally remote-control a large number of bit mobile suits (or "mobile bits") - in the Leopard's case, the FT-9600-GB GT-Bit. Although incapable of atmospheric flight, the Leopard is equipped with a set of gliding wheels in its feet, allowing it to "drive" on the ground at high speeds. The Leopard is also massively armored and armed, with its primary weapon being a large-caliber "inner arm Gatling" which is fitted over the left arm when in use. A multitude of additional armaments, including various missiles, grenade launchers, and shell-firing weapons, make the Gundam Leopard a literal walking fortress. Although an unknown number of Leopards are manufactured, only one unit is known to have survived the war. This last remaining Leopard finds its way into the hands of Vulture mercenary pilot Roybea Loy, who operates this heavily-armed Gundam during the military chaos occurring in A.W. 0015. Later that same year, Kid Salsamille, the ingenious young mobile suit mechanic aboard the Vulture land battleship Freeden, develops an optional "S-1" booster, allowing the Leopard to operate underwater like an amphibious mobile suit. The Leopard is later upgraded to the GT-9600-D Gundam Leopard Destroy after being heavily damaged in a battle with Milra Draido's NRX-010 Gable.
