AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel Striker is a Support fighter/Striker Pack for use with GAT-X105 Strike/GAT-01A1 Dagger. The unit is featured in the original design series SEED-MSV.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Gunbarrel Striker is a special unit based upon the TS-MA2mod.00 Moebius Zero, it can be automated or operated by its own pilot like a fighter/mobile armor and can also change into a Striker Pack to be mounted on GAT-X105 Strike or GAT-01A1 Dagger. When it is piloted, the front section can detach after the Striker Pack docks to the MS's back, which make sense as the unit's pilot is useless after the pack docks with the MS. In some way, the Gunbarrel Striker resembles the FX-550 Skygrasper as the front section can serve as a delivery unit for the back section, which is the main part of the Striker.

The armament of the unit includes a single M58E4 Gatling gun, which is mounted underneath the front section, and four wire-guided gunbarrel pods, which are similar to the ones on Moebius Zero. However, the Gunbarrel Striker's pods feature upgraded weaponry, consisting of one railgun and two missiles per pod. Like the Moebius Zero, the gunbarrel pods can only used by one with high spatial awareness. So far, the unit is only used by Morgan Chevalier's Dagger, it is unknown if it is used by other mobile suits.

In the game for Gameboy Advance, "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Tomo to kimi to Koko de", Mu La Flaga's Moebius Zero was modified into the Gunbarrel Striker by Morgenroete Inc.

Armaments

  • M58E4 Gatling Gun
Mounted on the bottom of the Striker's front section, it ensures that the unit is not weapon-less if the gunbarrel pods are all destroyed.
  • Wire-guided Gunbarrel Pod
This weapon is develop from the TS-MA2mod.00 Moebius Zero. It differs from those employed on the Zero by exchanging the autocannons for a railgun and a pair of missiles. These pods are usually mounted on the back section of the Striker but can be detached and controlled through wires to attack an enemy from multiple directions. Also, the gunbarrels can function as additional boosters when attached to the Striker, increasing its speed or the speed of the MS to which it is docked to.

History

Based upon the Moebius Zero, the Gunbarrel Striker was created by the Earth Alliance as a Striker pack for the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam. As with the Moebius Zero, the Gunbarrel Striker can only be operated effectively by pilots with highly spatial awareness. The plan then was that after the Strike was recovered from Archangel, it would be equipped with the Gunbarrel Striker and assigned to Mu La Flaga as his personal unit. However, as the plan did not materialize, the Gunbarrel Striker was passed on to Morgan Chevalier, who also has high spatial awareness, for use with his 105 Dagger. At least two of the units were used by 105 Dagger ace pilot Morgan Chevalier. One of these units was destroyed by Canard Pars when he attacked a Eurasian supply base. Another unit was sacrificed to entangle GAT-333 Raider Full Spec in its gunbarrel wires as a means of throwing the Raider's pilot, Edward Harrelson, down into Earth's gravity well where it would burn in the atmosphere.
