The New United Nations Earth’s NRX-0013 Gundam Virsago was presumably the first Gundam-type suit built after the devastating 7th Space War. The Gundam Virsago’s main armament was its extremely powerful mega sonic cannon, giving this suit a destructive firepower second only to the GX-9900 Gundam X – and not requiring the use of a Newtype pilot or a flash system/satellite system. Other armaments included a pair of arm-mounted strike claws and claw beam cannons. Piloted by telepathic Newtype-wannabe Shagia Frost, this rather spooky-looking Gundam’s visage fit his dark and conniving personality, and the Virsago was often referred to as the “Ghost Gundam.” During the military and political chaos of A.W. 0015, Shagia and his brother Olga proved to be constant threats to the Vulture ship Freeden and its trio of Gundam pilots. The Virsago was later upgraded to the more powerful NRX-0013-CB Gundam Virsago Chest Break.
