The ovm-pp Golden Gurdolin Perfect was a refined version of the earlier xvx-ooo Gurdolin. The Gurdolin was the creation of the Simplification & Streaming program, an initiative that aimed to simplify mobile suit components and increase the efficiency of the assembly and maintenance process. Commonly known as GGP, the unit replaced the arms on the original design with wing attachments that changed the unit’s center of gravity and increased its turning performance. The wings also contained multi-directional missile launchers that allowed it to capture and destroy enemy units in close combat. Using a newly developed technique, GGP was coated with multiple layers of special anti-beam gold coating, increasing its anti-beam defense. Production lines were established for GGP and if it had been widely deployed, it might’ve made a huge difference in the war’s outcome. However, until the end of the war, only 30 units were produced and none were deployed in battle.
After the war, these units were used in civil engineering, weather surveillance patrols of the Mars atmosphere and other related activities. Flexible use of this machine was due to its excellent performance and its ability to use different option parts; all these indirectly proved its combat potential. As most of the developers in the post war civilian mobile suit program were from the Gurdolin and the Golden Gurdolin Perfect development team, it seemed that the final result of the Simplification & Streaming program was in fulfilling the needs of civilians.
