After capturing four prototype Gundam mobile suits from the Earth Alliance in early C.E. 71, ZAFT reverse engineered the technology and created their own Gundam type mobile suits. One such suit was the transformable ZGMF-X11A Regenerate Gundam, which was based on the Alliance’s captured GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam. With a height of more than 35 meters, the Regenerate Gundam was unmatched in size until the introduction of the GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam years later during the Second Bloody Valentine War. Unlike previous Gundam designs, these new units featured a dangerous new technology: the N-Jammer Canceler. ZAFT originally developed the N-Jammer to prevent the Alliance from using nuclear weapons, but this also meant that mobile suits had to be powered by short life energy batteries. By creating the N-Jammer Canceler, a mobile suit could use a nuclear fission reactor and function for a nearly unlimited amount of time even with Phase Shift armor activated. Unfortunately, the N-Jammer Canceler technology proved to be a Pandora’s Box that fell into the wrong hands. In addition, the Regenerate Gundam was equipped with lightwave pulse thrusters. In its mobile armor mode, the Regenerate Gundam could absorb the energy from the GENESIS Alpha gamma-ray laser cannon to travel at extremely high speeds. Because of the Regenerate Gundam’s enormous size, it was often confused for a ship when it traveled in mobile armor mode.

The Regenerate Gundam’s name also related to its design. Using modular parts, the Regenerate Gundam could eject damaged parts and replace them with spare parts from its support ship. In addition, the cockpit could detach from the unit and connect to other mobile suits. If the mobile suit had external connectors, the Regenerate Gundam’s cockpit could seize control of that mobile suit. The Regenerate Gundam’s armaments included four beam swords similar to the Aegis Gundam, along with a large hyper impulse cannon. The formidable Regenerate Gundam was assigned to ZAFT special forces pilot Ash Gray, a homicidal maniac who killed for pleasure and maintained a collection of “dolls” to represent his victims. While testing the Regenerate Gundam, Ash damaged Rondo Mina Sahaku’s MBF-P01-Re2<AMATU> Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu, destroyed the ZAFT space station Erudou and damaged Lowe Guele’s MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame with Power Loader. In a subsequent battle, Ash faced off against Lowe’s Gundam Astray Red Frame “Powered Red” and Serpent Tail mercenary Gai Murakumo’s MBF-P03secondL Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L. During the battle, Lowe damaged the Regenerate Gundam, sending it drifting out of control through space into Alliance territory, where it and Ash were later captured.
