Introducted in C.E. 73, the GAT-04 Windam was the Earth Alliance’s newest mass production mobile suit and successor to the earlier GAT-02L2 Dagger L. The improved Windam shared some armaments with the Dagger L, including the vulcan guns, beam sabers and anti-armor penetrator. The Windam’s other armament was a new style beam rifle. Like the Dagger L, the Windam could also be equipped with multiple Striker packs. The Windam made its debut in October C.E. 73 following the Break the World incident, in which a group of extremist Coordinators dropped the remains of the PLANT Junius Seven onto Earth and caused serious damage. Following its debut, the Windam slowly replaced the Dagger L in space and at the Alliance’s terrestrial bases. A custom colored version was used by ace pilot Neo Roanoke (aka Mu La Flaga) during his pursuit of the ZAFT battleship Minerva on Earth.
