Technical and Historical Notes

The GN-008GNHW/3G Seravee Gundam GNHW/3G was a heavy weapon configuration of the GN-008 Seravee Gundam. The GNHW/3G used the GN-009 Seraphim Gundam and two unmanned versions, the GN-00902 SEM, to increase the range of the Trial System to a large area. The Seraphim Gundam could control the Seravee Gundam and the two SEMs via quantum communication, allowing a theoretically infinite remote control range. The range of the Trial System was limited, but it could still cover hundreds of kilometers. The GNHW/3G’s armaments included two GN Bazooka IIs, eight GN Cannons, 10 GN Beam Sabers, two GN Beam Machine Guns and two GN Shields. The GN Beam Machine Gun was developed for the Seraphim Gundam, which had no firearms. The GN Shield was a modified GN Shield Bit from the GN-006 Cherudim Gundam. The GN Shield retained the beam gun function of the shield bit, but could not be deployed as a remote weapon. Ultimately, Tieria Erde decided not to use the GNHW/3G and the SEMs in the final battle against the Innovators in 2312 because he had not reconnected to Veda. Theorizing that this would occur near the end of the battle, he concluded that the GNHW/3G and SEMs would be a burden to the other Gundam Meisters. Instead, the Seravee Gundam was equipped with the alternate GNHW/B parts.
