Technical and Historical Notes

Celestial Being’s GN-002 Gundam Dynames was a third generation long-range combat suit based on the second generation GNY-002 Gundam Sadalsuud. The Gundam Dynames could be equipped with various guns and rifles depending on the mission’s needs. When sniping, the head’s v-fin lowered to reveal a hidden camera. During this time, the suit’s defensive systems were managed by robotic assistant Haro to allow Gundam Meister Lockon Stratos to focus on sniping. The Gundam Dynames’ main weapon was its GN Sniper Rifle, which had a low rate of fire, but with the help of powerful sensors had an extremely long firing range. The weapon was operated through a rifle-shaped controller in the cockpit to take advantage of Lockon’s marksmanship skills. The optional GN Beam Pistols could be used in missions where the large GN sniper rifle was unsuitable. Because of their small size, the pistols had smaller GN Condensers and consequently lower power and range than the rifle.

Although the Gundam Dynames was intended to stay away from close combat, it carried a pair of GN Beam Sabers to defend itself if the need arose. The suit also carried a stock of GN Missiles for attacking large groups of enemies. After hitting the target, the missiles released stored GN particles to destroy the target from inside out. A GN Shield made of E-Carbon was mounted on the left shoulder since both hands were needed for the sniper rifle. The Haro-controlled GN Full Shield offered additional protection but was not initially equipped due to development issues. Like other Gundams, the Gundam Dynames was capable of using the Trans-Am System, which released highly compressed GN particles to increase speed and combat capabilities. In this case, the system also improved the suit’s sensor system, granting increased targeting accuracy. Lockon (real name Neil Dylandy) provided fire support for his fellow Meisters in many interventions, but he was consumed by a desire for revenge over the death of his family at the hands of terrorist Ali al-Saachez. In 2308, Lockon died while fighting Ali’s GNW-002 Gundam Throne Drei, but before that he directed Haro to return the heavily damaged Gundam Dynames to the Ptolemaios to safeguard its GN Drive. Later on, the suit was repaired and kept in reserve service as the GN-002RE Gundam Dynames Repair. The Gundam Dynames’ long-range combat role was continued by its successor, the GN-006 Cherudim Gundam, piloted in 2312 by Neil’s twin brother, Lyle.
