Technical and Historical Notes

An upgraded version of the ZGMF-600 GuAIZ, the ZGMF-601R GuAIZ R served as ZAFT’s main mass production mobile suit in the postwar period and during the early days of the Second Bloody Valentine War. While the basic design was the same as the original, several improvements were made to its armaments. The head vulcans, composite shield and beam rifle of the original remained, although the extensional arrestor was removed. In addition, some of the backpack thrusters were removed. The GuAIZ R’s hips now featured a pair of “Pollux IX” railguns that functioned in a similar manner to the “Xiphias” rail cannons used by the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam. At the outbreak of war in October C.E. 73, ZAFT was in the process of replacing the GuAIZ R with its latest mass production design, the ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior.
