Neo Mexico’s GF13-049NM Tequila Gundam was designed to take advantage of the skills of its powerful pilot, Chico Rodriguez. The Tequila Gundam was equipped with ten head vulcans in its sombrero, as well as two beam tridents. All Gundam Fighters had reasons for entering the 13th Gundam Fight, and for Chico, his reason was to escape to Earth with his sister Gina. After Gina contracted a terminal disease on the Neo Mexico colony, Chico became a Gundam Fighter so that they could go down to Neo Mexico on Earth and spend what time she had left on the ocean. However, the Neo Mexico government didn’t like the idea of its Gundam Fighter escaping and killing off his opponents outside the Gundam Fight. This changed after an encounter with Domon Kasshu and his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam. After convincing Chico to join him in a Gundam Fight, Domon partially destroyed the Tequila Gundam so that Chico could escape and live with his sister. To the eyes of the Neo Mexican authorities, Chico “died” valiantly fighting for his country.
