Technical and Historical Notes

Throughout the course of the Bloody Valentine War, ZAFT created several variants of its main mass production mobile suit, the ZGMF-1017 GINN. One such variant was the ZGMF-1017M GINN High Maneuver Type, which was equipped with a new engine in its wings similar to the ones used in the METEOR combat support unit. It was also equipped with additional thrusters across its body for high maneuverability. The GINN HM Type was armed with an experimental armor assault rifle, which mounted a heavy sword on its end to serve as a bayonet. Several GINN HM Types were assigned to noted ZAFT aces, including Rau Le Creuset and Mikhail Coast. After the war, ZAFT produced an improved model, the ZGMF-1017M2 GINN High Maneuver Type II.
