Technical and Historical Notes

The GNMA-0001V Regnant was a transforming mobile armor based on the prototype GNMA-Y0001 Empruss. Whereas the Empruss was a pure mobile armor, the Regnant could transform into a massive mobile suit. Because of its mobile suit mode, the Regnant was capable of fighting land battles, which the Empruss was not. The Regnant’s extensive armaments allowed it to fight multiple Gundams on its own. Its weapons included a pair of GN Particle Cannons similar to its predecessors, plus GN Micro Missiles and GN Vulcans. In mobile armor mode, the wings doubled as anti-ship GN Swords. The Regnant’s “fingers” served as GN Fangs, with each mounting a beam cannon. The GN Vulcan Guns were usable in both mobile armor/suit modes, although in mobile suit form they shifted to the thighs. The Egner Whips mounted in the palms could also double as 4-barrel GN Beam Vulcans. The Regnant’s arms also housed a pair of GN Missile Launchers.

The Innovators/Innovades intended to put the Regnant into mass production, but this plan never came into fruition. The Innovators/Innovades also worked on a slightly improved variant, the GNMA-0001V2 Regnant 2. The original unit was piloted by Louise Halevy, an artificially enhanced human and financial backer of A-LAWS who held a grudge against Celestial Being for the deaths of her parents in 2308. Louise got her revenge in 2312 when she destroyed Nena Trinity’s GNW-003 Gundam Throne Drei. During a battle with the GN-0000+GNR-010 00 Raiser, ex-boyfriend Saji Crossroad was able to get through to Louise and break her free of Ribbons Almark’s control. After the battle, the Earth Sphere Federation recovered the Regnant near the Celestial Being and attempted to study it, but the cockpit block containing the combat data was missing.
