GNW-003 Gundam Throne Drei pilot Nena Trinity sought revenge upon Ali al-Saachez for the murder of her two brothers, and through limited access to Veda she met the Innovade Regene Regetta and discovered that Ali was an employee of Ribbons Almark. Knowing that the Throne Drei was not powerful enough to take on Ali’s GNW-20000 Arche Gundam, Nena asked Regene for help since Regene wanted to eliminate Ribbons. Regene agreed and developed the GNW-20003 Arche Gundam Drei, which he positioned as a support machine for the Arche Gundam to mask its true purpose. However, the suit’s design was also a jab at Nena, who must use the same suit type as her hated enemy. The Arche Drei inherited the Throne Drei’s combat support functions and could use a GN Stealth Field. Although it was a support unit, it had sufficient combat capability and its overall performance was superior to the Throne Drei’s.

The suit’s side skirt armors inherited the shape of Throne Drei’s GN Shield, and each unit stored one GN Fang on the underside for defensive purposes. The suit’s GN Stealth Field backpack/emitter’s design was inherited from the Throne Drei. When the GN Handgun was used, it would flip forward, and a beam saber could be generated from the emitter that is between the two blade-like protrusions. In terms of overall combat capability, Ali had the upper hand. To solve this problem, Nena planned to use the GN Stealth Field, which could release high density GN particles that not only disrupted radar and communication systems, but could also disperse/disrupt the integrity of beam shots and render the GN Fangs useless. As a result, Ali could only engage in close combat and rely on his sight during the battle. Nena would then take advantage of the situation and attack from Ali’s blindspot. Through controlling the particle density, the sensor systems of Arche Drei remained unaffected and could also use its beam weapons freely. As such, Nena thought that she would have the overwhelming advantage during the battle. Although the suit was developed specifically for Nena, there was no record of her ever using it – particularly since she was killed in 2312 by Louise Halevy, who herself sought vengeance against Nena for the murder of her parents.
