Design & Development
As Gundam Barbatos fought many battles with its pilot Mikazuki Augus, it became too damaged to be repaired. Barbatos was temporarily left with the MS Workshop in Saisei, the home base of Teiwaz, and received an overhaul. Frame parts in the arm and leg joints were changed to those reproduced by Teiwaz, this helps to resolve the accumulated damages and also improved their movability.
Using Mikazuki's combat data, the mobile suit's reaction speed and mobility were increased, and adjustments are made through the Alaya-Vijnana System to deepen the link between the machine's movement and the pilot's own senses. As a result, the Gundam Frame's response rate was adjusted to match with the speed that Mikazuki senses. The suit's armaments were also rebuilt to fit Mikazuki's fighting style, and while its body armor is light, it is designed to most effectively fend off the impacts of being shot by a greater use of curved surfaces. Since Mikazuki prefers close combat, reducing damage sustained until he gets close to the opponent is a major issue. The name "Lupus" was given by the Saisei's Chief Mechanic, who was also responsible for the mobile suit's maintenance.
- A heavy, close combat weapon developed by Teiwaz's technicians for Barbatos Lupus, its shape is designed to avoid hampering the MS' mobility.
- 200mm Gun
- Mounted on forearms, the gun barrel faces backward when not in use and rotates forward when in use. The recoil when fired is absorbed by the weapon's rail slide, minimizing the effect on the control of the MS. Close combat weapon can be held in hand while the 200mm Gun is equipped.
- Arm Rocket Launcher
- Close to mid-range shooting weapons. Mounted on the forearms.
- Twin Mace
- The main weapon for Barbatos used in a melee.
- Backpack Arm
- Like the original Barbatos, Barbatos Lupus has a pair of Backpack Arms on its back to mount weapons. They also contain a hidden claw each that can used for attacks.
- Alaya-Vijnana System
- The cable connecting the pilot to the machine's Alaya-Vijnana system is lengthen and can be extended out of the cockpit. This is to assist Mikazuki who has lost sensation in his right arm.
