Technical and Historical Notes

The ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos (3rd Form) represented a minor upgrade over the 2nd Form. The 2nd Form’s gauntlet was damaged in battle and replaced with a GR-Es02 wire claw seized from Gaelio Bauduin’s EB-05s Schwalbe Graze. The 3rd Form retained the mace and 300mm smoothbore gun used by the 2nd Form. After the upstart Tekkadan officially joined Teiwaz, the 3rd Form was overhauled and upgraded to the 4th Form, which restored the Gundam to its original appearance from the Calamity War.
