Technical and Historical Notes

After the Bloody Valentine War, the Earth Alliance rolled out the GAT-02L2 Dagger L to replace its first mass production suits, the GAT-01 Strike Dagger and GAT-01A1 Dagger. Like the Dagger, the Dagger L was capable of mounting Striker packs. The GAT-02L2+AQM/E-X03 Launcher Dagger L was armed with a hyper impulse cannon and combo weapon pod that included an anti-ship vulcan gun and a pair of gun launchers.
