Technical and Historical Notes

The AEU-05 AEU Hellion Capture Equipment Type was a special Hellion variant designed to capture Celestial Being’s Gundams. To accomplish this, it was equipped with a pair of electromagnetic shields. The shields were attached to the suit’s hips via movable joints and during flight, the shields were also attached to the attachment points on the shoulder. The suit’s main thrusters were enlarged due to the large shields. As the size of the shields reduced the suit’s mobility, its flight capability had become simply a means of movement. In 2308, the three superpowers set a trap for the Gundams in the Taklimakan Desert. Four of these variants were deployed together to surround and capture the GN-005 Gundam Virtue in the force field produced by the shields. Although initially successful, the tide turned on the superpowers after the unexpected arrival of Celestial Being’s Gundam Throne mobile suits.
