Technical and Historical Notes

 

The GN-001/hs-A01 Gundam Avalanche Exia was a high mobility equipment variation designed by Ian Vashti. Its model number stood for High Speed Avalanche type Unit 1. The Avalanche parts contained GN Condensers that were larger than the normal size, allowing them to store more GN particles. Simultaneous release of these particles gave the suit vastly improved maneuverability. However, the particles had to be charged an hour prior to launch, meaning that the Avalanche equipment could not be used on short notice. In addition, the particles' operational time was 10 minutes. The speed of the SVMS-01 Union Flag normally exceeded the GN-001 Gundam Exia, but the Avalanche equipment gave it the edge over the Flag. In high speed mode, the GN verniers in the Avalanche parts were deployed, and the arm-mounted parts connected to the shoulder-mounted parts, which helped reduce wind resistance. The suit was also covered by a thin layer of GN particles that could control the airflow on the suit's surface. The Avalanche equipment was only meant to improve speed and did not feature any new weapons, but the higher speed allowed the Gundam Exia's weapons to inflict greater damage. If necessary, the Avalanche parts could be ejected before combat. Later, a new Dash unit was developed to improve space mobility and was dubbed the GN-001/hs-A01D Gundam Avalanche Exia'.
