Technical and Historical Notes

 

The GNR-001 GN Arms was created as a support mecha to power up the Gundams. The GN Arms was stored in the rear section of the assault container that replaced the normal container of the Ptolemaios. Although the GN Arms was capable of independent operation, it needed to combine with the Gundam to form the GN Armor for sustained use as it lacked a GN Drive and was powered by a GN Condenser. When in GN Armor form, part of the wings could act as clavicle antenna, improving the GN particle control ability. The equipment of the GN Arms could be changed according to what Gundam it was docking with, and only two GN Arms were produced, the Type-E and Type-D configuration.

 

The GN Arms Type-E was designed with mobility in mind and was capable of high speed combat. Like the GN-001 Gundam Exia's GN Sword, the GN Arms' large-size GN Sword's blade was coated with GN particles. Its destructive power was increased in accordance to its large size. The GN Beam Guns were mainly used for restricting enemy movements, and thus were not very powerful. However, they had a wider attack radius than the large-size GN Cannons as they were mounted on moveable parts. The large-size GN Cannons were as powerful as the GN-005 Gundam Virtue's GN Bazooka. Due to their high particle consumption, these cannons could only display their true power if the GN Arms was docked with the Gundam. When the GN Arms was stored in the Ptolemaios' assault container, the cannons served as the ship's cannons. Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei made use of the GN Arms Type-E in a battle against Alejandro Corner's massive GNMA-XCVII Alvatore, during which time the unit was destroyed.
