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 GX-9900 Gundam X (or "GX"), and like its brethren GW-9800 Gundam Airmaster and GT-9600 Gundam Leopard, 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 GX's case, the FX-9900 GX-Bit. The GX is also the most powerful of the Gundams, being armed with a satellite cannon capable of destroying a space colony with a single shot. The satellite cannon is powered by a super-microwave energy beam transmitted from a solar power station on the Moon; however, the GX requires a Newtype pilot to use its flash system to contact the lunar station and power the weapon. As an added safety feature to prevent wanton use of the satellite cannon, the GX required the use of a removable G-controller, which not only serves as the pilot's main control stick in the cockpit, but also acts as a "key" to activate the Gundam X and is used to arm and fire the satellite cannon. The GX is also armed with more standard weapons for conventional combat, such as a beam sword, vulcan guns in the chest, and a "buster" beam rifle that can double as a shield.

Although an unknown number of GXs are manufactured, one unit in particular is well-known, having been operated by Newtype pilot Jamil Neate in the 7th Space War during a failed attempt to stop the Space Revolutionary Army's mass colony drop operation. This GX is later critically damaged in battle, and its remains are later recovered in A.W. 0015 by the New United Nations Earth to aid in the development of its new GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X. Around the same time, a second, intact GX unit is found stored in an abandoned military base on Earth, and it falls into the hands of young Vulture mercenary pilot Garrod Ran in April A.W. 0015. However, Garrod is a non-Newtype, and he needs the help of Newtypes like Tiffa Adill and Jamil Neate on several occasions to fire the GX's devastating satellite cannon. Heavily damaged in a battle with Carris Nautilus' RMSN-008 Bertigo, the GX is upgraded to the GX-9900-DV Gundam X Divider. In A.W. 0024, an intact black GX unit is discovered by Vulture pilot Rick Aller.
