Technical and Historical Notes

 

The GN-006/SA Cherudim Gundam SAGA (Special Assault Gundam Arms) is a special equipment version of the GN-006 Cherudim Gundam. Designed by Ian Vashti, it is inspired by the Seven Swords concept of the GN-001 Gundam Exia and is codenamed “Seven Guns” during development. Ian keeps the SAGA conversion parts to a minimum by making them mostly guns. To adapt to close-mid range combat, the suit is equipped with a crystal sensor in its head. The GN Shield Bits are removed due to being unsuited for combat in small areas and are replaced by a GN Small Shield. The GN Small Shield can be detached from the shoulder armor and held in hand. It can produce a GN Field for a short period of time. A sensor is located within the central crystal of the shield and can be used for searching for enemy units. With the GN Shield Bits no longer protecting the GN Drive, Ian adds new armor to the sides of the drive and a GN Missile Container to protect its top section. Overall, the removal of parts makes the SAGA configuration lighter than the standard Cherudim Gundam. The SAGA’s main armament is a GN Assault Carbine, capable of mid-range sniping. It is also armed with four front GN Missile Pods, a pair of GN Submachine Guns, a pair of GN Beam Pistol IIs and the same GN Beam Pistols type from the GN-002 Gundam Dynames.

 

After the final battle with the Innovators in 2312, Sherilyn Hyde repairs the heavily damaged Cherudim Gundam and converts it to the SAGA configuration for use by the recreated Fereshte. Due to the damage to the Cherudim Gundam being so severe, it is not possible to restore the suit to its original performance levels. With no GN Drives available to Fereshte, the SAGA is converted to run on a GN Condenser. Because of the Earth Sphere Federation’s surveillance network and control of the orbital elevators, the SAGA is stationed only in space and assigned to Leo Sieg.
