Technical and Historical Notes

Like the original GAT-X105 Strike Gundam, the upgraded GAT-X105E Strike Gundam E was designed to use multiple interchangeable Striker packs. It most commonly used the AQM/E-X09S Noir Striker, which combined various armaments. The Noir Striker’s wings housed a pair of linked linear guns, as well as a pair of beam blades and a rocket anchor. The Strike Noir was assigned to Phantom Pain pilot Sven Cal Bayang and served as his personal unit during the Second Bloody Valentine War that began in late C.E. 73 with the Break the World incident. Separated from the regular Earth Alliance command structure, Sven’s Phantom Pain unit included Mudie Holcroft’s GAT-X1022 Blu Duel Gundam and Shams Couza’s GAT-X103AP Verde Buster Gundam.

During the course of the war, Sven was assigned to lead a group of Orb pilots using GAT-01A2R Slaughter Daggers in the hunt for the Martian ship Acidalium and Ergnes Brahe’s GSF-YAM01 Δ Astray. Sven’s unit was later assigned to protect Phantom Pain’s land carrier Bonaparte, as well as the massive GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam. The Bonaparte came under attack from ZAFT forces, resulting in Mudie’s death. Soon after, Sven and Shams were sent to space as part of an attack on the Deep Space Survey and Development Organization (DSSD) to seize control of the AI-equipped GSX-401FW Stargazer Gundam. During that battle, the Strike Noir was damaged by the Stargazer Gundam. In a last ditch effort to defeat Sven, Selene McGriff used the Stargazer Gundam’s “Voiture Lumiere” interplanetary propulsion system to send both suits out to near Venus. Afterward, Selene rescued Sven and used the Strike Noir’s remaining energy to recharge the Stargazer Gundam for its long journey back to Earth, leaving the crippled Strike Noir behind.
