Technical and Historical Notes

During the Bloody Valentine War, the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam proved its versatility thanks to the use of its interchangeable Striker packs. After the war, Actaeon Industries upgraded a Strike Gundam to the GAT-X105E Strike Gundam E (E meaning enhanced). The new Strike Gundam E featured several changes from the original design. Unlike the original, the Strike Gundam E was equipped with color-changing Variable Phase Shift (VPS) armor, as well as an enhanced power unit. The original’s armaments were also replaced, as the Strike Gundam E featured new CIWS guns, as well as four rocket anchors mounted in the hands and feet. The hip-mounted “Armor Schneider” combat knives were replaced with a pair of “Shorty” beam rifles. Like the original Strike Gundam, the Strike Gundam E could mount Striker packs. A Strike Gundam E was assigned to Phantom Pain pilot Sven Cal Bayang and served as his personal unit during the Second Bloody Valentine War.
