CB-001 1 Gundam (aka 1 Gundam, pronounced "Ai/Eye" Gundam) is the half-prototype design of the CB-0000G/C Reborns Gundam, piloted by Beside Pain in Mobile Suit Gundam 00P and later his counterpart Leif Recitativo in Mobile Suit Gundam 00I. It was mentioned in Mobile Suit Gundam 00V: Battlefield Record that Ribbons Almark possessed a unit for himself as well.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
Unlike Celestial Being's mobile suits, which was built to develop technology, 1 Gundam was built as a successor to GN-000 0 Gundam, but specifically created as a general purpose machine for an Innovade pilot. It came with the standard equipment such as a beam rifle, beam saber and shield, until it was later upgraded to the CB-001.5 1.5 Gundam. 1 Gundam was built in secret and only to be used on special assignments in conjunction with the GN Cannon. Just as the CBY-077 GN Cannon is the forerunner to the Reborns Cannon, the 1 Gundam is the antecedent of CB-0000G/C/T Reborns Gundam Origin's Gundam mode.
- GN Feathers
- In chapter eight of 00I, the 1 Gundam displays the ability to use GN feathers similar to the GN-000 0 Gundam. Since 1 Gundam has a similar GN propulsion system as the GN-001 Gundam Exia it is unknown if it's GN Feather System possesses the same qualities as that of the 0 Gundam. However since 1 Gundam is the successor to the 0 Gundam it would be likely that the systems are the same. In chapter 8 of 00I, 1 Gundam's GN Feathers amplified the defensive ability of 1 Gundam's shield in order to protect it from Momento Mori's blast.
- Initially, 1 Gundam's model number was "CBY-001", however, some recent sources such as the Reborns Origin profile and the new development chart have named it to "CB-001" for unknown reasons. Some recent sources such as HG 1.5 Gundam, HG Raphael Gundam and the 00I website still state it as CBY-001 however so it remains an alternate.
- It has been stated that the beam sabers on the 1 Gundam are either replicas or the very same beam sabers on Gundam Rasiel.
