Technical and Historical Notes

During the Bloody Valentine War, the Earth Alliance created the GAT-01A1 Dagger, a mass production version of the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam. Unlike the Alliance’s first mass production suit, the GAT-01 Strike Dagger, the Dagger series was compatible with Striker packs. The GAT-01A1+AQM/E-X02 Sword Dagger was armed with a “Schwert Gewehr” anti-ship sword, “Panzer Eisen” rocket launcher and “Midas Messer” beam boomerang.
