Technical and Historical Notes

During a battle against the New U.N.E.’s massive (and beam weapon-proof) NRX-010 Gable mobile suit, Roabea Loy’s GT-9600 Gundam Leopard was heavily damaged, as his was the only unit among the Freeden‘s mobile suit complement armed with a significant number of conventional, non-beam weapons. Following the battle, the Freeden‘s ever-resourceful mobile suit mechanic, young Kid Salsamille, set to work to rebuild Roabea’s suit. The refurbished unit was renamed GT-9600-D Gundam Leopard Destroy, and its weaponry loadout was overhauled, replacing many of its old conventional arms with a greater number of beam weapons. As a result, the Leopard Destroy’s armament was now considered more “well-balanced,” thus helping Roabea to better use his Gundam against the increasingly powerful New U.N.E. military.
