Technical and Historical Notes

The OZ-15AGX Hydra Gundam was a high performance mobile suit assigned to ruthless OZ pilot Valder Farkill. While serving under Zechs Merquise in the OZ Specials, Valder racked up more individual kills against the United Earth Sphere Alliance than his entire unit combined. This bloody record earned him the nickname “Dark General of Destruction.” One of the main features of the Hydra Gundam was its ability to fold back its legs and use the thrusters housed underneath the skirt armor for high speed maneuvers. The Hydra Gundam was equipped with an EMF shield that could block many attacks, and its main armaments included a buster gun, beam saber and two foldable shoulder claws. When Valder assumed leadership of OZ Prize in late AC 195, he proved a formidable nemesis for the defenders of the remote colony MO-V. At the conclusion of the Eve Wars on December 24, AC 195, Valder was killed in battle by OZ-19MASX Gundam Griepe pilot Odin Bernett.
