Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the Bloody Valentine War dragged on, ZAFT continuously fielded new mobile suit models. In the later part of the war, the Earth Alliance caught up to ZAFT with its first mass production design, the GAT-01 Strike Dagger. Soon after, ZAFT introduced the ZGMF-600 GuAIZ as its final mass production model to replace the aging ZGMF-1017 GINN. Though the GuAIZ was similar in appearance to earlier ZAFT units, it featured newer technologies that ZAFT acquired after stealing four Alliance Gundams earlier in the year. These technologies included a now standard beam rifle, head-mounted vulcan guns and a pair of beam claws located on the shield. Additionally, the GuAIZ was equipped with an extensional arrestor similar to the "Panzer Eisen" rocket anchor used by the GAT-X105+AQM/E-X02 Sword Strike Gundam. ZAFT incorporated other test weapons in the YFX-600R GuAIZ Experimental Firearms Type. The GuAIZ came in a standard olive green color scheme, but it was also available in gray commander's colors for use by ace pilots such as Rau Le Creuset. Although the GuAIZ generally outperformed the Strike Dagger and Orb's MBF-M1 M1 Astray, the biggest problem facing ZAFT was getting enough units onto the battlefield. Unfortunately for ZAFT, the GuAIZ was introduced too late in the war to be able to make a difference in its outcome. In the years after the war, ZAFT rolled out an upgraded version of the GuAIZ, the ZGMF-601R GuAIZ R.
