Technical and Historical Notes

The SVMS-01O Over Flag was essentially a copy of the SVMS-01E Graham’s Union Flag Custom, designed for the pilots in Graham Aker’s anti-Gundam task force. However, the Over Flag lacked some of the dangerous elements in the SVMS-01E, such as the removal of the anti-G limiter. The AI-controlled light display on the cheek was for visual communication as well as for intimidation purposes, and could appear on both cheeks. The Over Flag’s new type linear rifle (aka Trident Striker) was developed from the trial type linear rifle and had three muzzles. The center 200mm muzzle fired large caliber, high speed bullets which required long charging time and hence had a low rate of fire. To overcome this weakness, the rifle had two other 60mm muzzles at the sides for firing rapid but weaker shots. When using the secondary grip on the left or right of the rifle as the main grip, the rifle would only fire from the topmost 60mm muzzle. Although the Over Flag was able to mount missiles in its legs, this option was never utilized in order to reduce the unit’s weight when fighting Gundams. Initially, only 14 Over Flag units were produced as part of the task force. However, by 2314, the space use SVMS-01OA Over Flag Astro Package was in use with the Earth Sphere Federation.
