The AMA-953 BABI is a Mobile Suit in the series Gundam SEED Destiny.

Techology & Combat Characteristics

The BABI is the successor of the AMF-101 DINN and is designated as an "Aerial Maneuver Attacker", thus the "AMA" in its code number. The suit was developed to maintain ZAFT's air superiority in the face of new flight capable MS deployed by the Earth Alliance and Orb Union, and can transform into a MA mode for high-speed flying by unfolding its wings and folding its legs on its back. The suit has better flight, aerial combat capabilities and firepower than the DINN, and is equipped with a variety of beam and shell based weaponry. Some of the BABI's internal parts are compatible with those of the ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited.

Armaments

  • MGX-2237 "Ardor" Multi-Phase Beam Cannon
Mounted in the chest, the "Ardor" Multi-Phase Beam Cannon is the suit's strongest weapon and can be used in MS mode to destroy enemy units in front, or in MA mode to attack facilities on the ground.
  • QFJ91 12-barrel Missile Launcher
Mounted on the wings, the missile launchers are mainly used in MA mode to attack enemy units or for bombarding enemy facilities.
  • MMI-GAU2436 22.5mm 4-barrel Machine Gun
The BABI has four such machine guns, two on each wing. These machine guns are mainly used in MA mode for intercepting enemy's attacks.
  • MA-M343 Beam Rifle
A handheld beam rifle, it is usually held by the right hand and serves as a mid-range combat weapon.
  • MMI-M182 Aerial Gun-launcher
The suit's second handheld weaponry, it is usually held by the left hand and fires large caliber shells.

History

The AMA-953 BABI is ZAFT's latest aerial mobile suit, designed to replace the older AMF-101 DINN. The BABI is first seen at ZAFT's Carpentaria base, and their first recorded use is in the pursuit of a shuttle stolen by Lacus Clyne and Andrew Waltfeld in C.E. 73. They are later used in such important battles like the one in Berlin, where they try to stop the massive GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam, with no success however. Other units are used in the LOGOS capture operation during the attack on Heaven's Base as well as Operation Fury, during which ZAFT attacks the Orb Union.

Notes & Trivia

  • The BABI has many similarities to the RX-139 Hambrabi from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. Other than similar names, they are both transforming units, and also share some shape similarities, such as their heads.
