Gustav Karl Type-00

From The Free Gundam Wiki

The FD-03-00 Gustav Karl Type-00 is a mobile suit that appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway.

Design & Development[edit | edit source]

A fifth generation mobile suit manufactured by Anaheim Electronics for Mafty's raid on the Adelaide Conference[1]. Although it is a sister machine to the Penelope, more epoch-making technology has been introduced since it is equipped with a built-in Minovsky Flight Unit[1]. Its overall height exceeds 26 meters and its arms are considerably larger than the standard mobile suit's size[1]. While it bears the name "Gundam", it has a shape that stands out as a monstrous silhouette[1].

Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The original novel design was done by Yasuhiro Moriki. The redesign that first appeared in SD Gundam G Generation F was done by Kazumi Fujita.
  • The G Generation design was then slightly redesigned for Gundam Unicorn: the Flexible Shield was now mounted on the backpack via a support arm, 2 head vulcan ports instead of 1 and finally giving details on the weapons like where the beam sabers where stored and how many grenades were stored on the forearm launcher.
  • The Type-00 is based on the Unicorn redesign except it has the G Generation color scheme, uses the rod antenna from the Dora Karl, has a single head vulcan port and has a new weapon rack on the backpack.
  • The Gustav Karl's name and model number are based on the Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter aircrafts' variants used by Nazi Germany.
