Technical and Historical Notes

 

While the crew of the Vulture ship Freeden are aiding in the defense of the People's Republic of Estard against an invasion by the New United Nations Earth, Witz Sou's GW-9800 Gundam Airmaster is heavily damaged during an intense dogfight against the New UNE's superior NRMA-006 Gadeel mobile armors. After the battle, the Estard government offers to assist the Freeden crew with their repairs and supplies, and Witz accepts the offer. Kidd Salsamille, the Freeden's young mobile suit mechanic, works side-by-side with engineers in the Estard military to rebuild Witz's trashed mobile suit. The result is the GW-9800-B Gundam Airmaster Burst, sporting not only a snazzy new blue-on-white paint job, but an increase in armor and firepower. The original Airmaster's nose vulcan guns are replaced with beam guns, and a pair of additional beam cannons are mounted on each wing. Although the Airmaster Burst is heavier than its original form, speed and maneuverability aren't sacrificed, as additional jets are also installed in the wings to compensate for the extra bulk as well as improve performance. With these improvements, Witz's reborn Airmaster Burst is more than capable of holding its own against the New UNE's Gadeels and other aerial combat units.
