- [GS] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
- [GSA] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray
- [GSD] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny
- [GSDA] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Astray
- [GS73] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73: Stargazer
- [GSΔA] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73 Δ Astray

- [GSVSA] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED VS Astray
- [GS-MSV] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED MSV
- [GSD-MSV] - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny MSV
"Gundam" is never used in the series to officially identify any mobile suit; it is an acronym for variations of the various Mobile Operating Systems used to run mobile suits and mobile armors, and Kira Yamato uses it as a nickname to refer to his mobile suit(s). The word "Gundam" is used in marketing copy and model kit/toy packaging to designate the "hero" mobile suits, as opposed to the normal "grunt" mobile suits.
See the units' individual pages, where available, for detailed information.
Clyne Faction/Three Ship Alliance
The Clyne Faction stole the ZAFT support ship Eternal, and on meeting up with the remnants of the Orb Union formed the Three Ship Alliance - comprising the Earth Alliance assault ship Archangel, the ZAFT support ship Eternal, the Orb Union battleship Kusanagi, and several mobile suits. The Clyne Faction/Three Ship Alliance being a unit comprised mostly of ZAFT and Earth Alliance defectors, plus surviving Orb Union personnel, it does not have any MS research nor production capability.
They deploy the following units (see the original constructors' sections for additional information):
- GAT-X103 Buster Gundam [GS] - Earth Alliance prototype stolen by ZAFT, then captured by the Archangel along with its pilot, Dearka Elsman. Dearka later defects to the Three Ships Alliance.
- GAT-X105 Strike Gundam [GS] - Earth Alliance prototype piloted by Kira Yamato, until it is heavily damaged by the Aegis' self-destruct. Repaired by Orb, it is then piloted by Mu La Flaga.
- MBF-02 Strike Rouge [GS/GSD] - Three Ships Alliance copy of the GAT-X105 Strike, built on the Kusanagi using spare parts from Strike - piloted by Cagalli Yula Athha. Later piloted by Kira Yamato in episode 39 of GSD to rescue Lacus Clyne.
- MBF-M1 Astray [GS] - Orb Union production Mobile Suit. Eleven units aboard the Kusanagi, pilots included Asagi Caldwell, Juri Wu Nien, Mayura Labatt, and Jean Carry.
- MBF-M1A M1A Astray [GSA/GS-MSV] - Orb Union production space combat Mobile Suit. One unit aboard the Kusanagi, piloted by Barry Ho.
- ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam [GS] - ZAFT prototype unit, assigned to Athrun Zala - who defects with it to the Clyne Faction/Three Ships Alliance. Self-destructed to destroy the GENESIS Superweapon.
- ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam [GS/GSD] - ZAFT prototype unit, stolen by Lacus Clyne and Kira Yamato and severely damaged in Kira's battle with Rau Le Creuset at the end of the Battle of Jachin Due.
After the end of the first Bloody Valentine War, the Clyne Faction evolved into a covert moderate military and political organization dedicated to preventing war, and by C.E. 73 had infiltrated (and/or had allies in) the governments and militaries of most of the major powers. Possessed the former Earth Alliance assault ship Archangel, the former ZAFT support ship Eternal, the secret factory Terminal (hidden with the Eternal in an asteroid), and a number of mobile suits. The asteroid factory had the facilities to build and upgrade mobile suits. Terminal's allies included ZAFT, Orb and Earth Alliance military battleships and units.
- MVF-M11C Murasame [GSD] - Orb Union production transformable mobile suit. Seven units aboard the Archangel, one piloted by Andrew Waltfeld with his in a custom golden color scheme (this unit later piloted by Ledonir Kisaka) and the rest by defectors from Orb.
- ORB-01 Akatsuki [GSD] - Orb Union prototype unit, commissioned by Cagalli's father, Uzumi Nara Athha for her before his death. Given to Cagalli Yula Athha by Kisaka. It was later passed on to Neo Roanoke.
- ZGMF-1001 ZAKU Phantom [GSD] - ZAFT production mobile suit, piloted by Dearka Elsman; who is revealed to be a member of Terminal and assists in the destruction of the Requiem's first relay point.
- ZGMF-2000 GOUF Ignited [GSD] - ZAFT production mobile suit, piloted by Yzak Joule; who is revealed to be a member of Terminal and assists in the destruction of the Requiem's first relay point.
- ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam [GS/GSD] - Former ZAFT prototype mobile suit, piloted by Kira Yamato. Rebuilt in secret in Orb after the first Bloody Valentine War, and destroyed in battle with Shinn Asuka's ZGMF-X56S Impulse during the Second Bloody Valentine War.
- ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice Gundam [GSD] - Terminal custom mobile suit, built in Terminal's asteroid factory and based on the original prototype ZGMF-X09A Justice. Piloted by Athrun Zala.
- ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam [GSD] - Terminal custom mobile suit, built in Terminal's asteroid factory and based on the original prototype ZGMF-X10A Freedom. Piloted by Kira Yamato.
- ZGMF-X88S Gaia Gundam [GSD] - ZAFT unit stolen by Phantom Pain, but recovered by ZAFT. Later stolen by Terminal and assigned to the Eternal, it is piloted by Andrew Waltfeld (with the Phase Shift armor modified to produce Andy's custom orange and gold color scheme).
- ZGMF-XX09T DOM Trooper [GSD] - ZAFT prototype series, never saw mass production. At least three ZGMF-XX09T DOM Trooper Original Spec Types were built by ZAFT (possibly nine or more given the unit numbering on the shoulder), and three units are stolen by Terminal and taken to Terminal's asteroid factory where they are completed, and modified with enhanced equipment and armament. Assigned to the Eternal, and piloted by Hilda Harken (team leader, pilot of unit 003), Herbert Von Reinhardt (pilot of unit 004), and Mars Simeon (pilot of unit 009). Unit 003 is damaged at the end of the Second Bloody Valentine War.
- GAT-02L2 Dagger L [GSD] - Earth Alliance mass-production mobile unit. Terminal's allied Earth Alliance vessels carried several Dagger L units.
OMNI mobile suits have the designation GAT (Gressorial Armament Tactical). Experimental units in the series include the modifier of "X" before the unit designation number (example: GAT-X105 Strike). The word "Gressorial" means "adapted for walking". Mobile armors have the designation TS-MA (Theater Suppression - Mobile Armor). The meaning of the designation RGX is not yet known, but it could refer to either captured ZAFT units or those of Blue Cosmos/LOGOS affiliated squadrons.
OMNI's standard mobile suit operating system is designated "General Unilateral Neuro-Link Dispersive Autonomic Maneuver" (or "GUNDAM"). The GFAS-X1 Destroy uses an OS designated "Gigantic Unilateral Numerous Dominating Ammunition" Fortress.
The Calamity, Forbidden, and Raider, along with their variants are equipped with a type of Phase Shift Armor called Trans-Phase Armor. TP armor varies from PS armor in that it activates only at the point and time of impact, because of this it uses less energy than PS armor, that energy can be used for heavy energy weapons.
- GAT-X102 Duel [GS] - General-purpose combat mobile suit, the first of the series. Stolen by ZAFT.
- GAT-X1022 Blu Duel [GS73] - An upgraded GAT-X102 Duel Assault Shroud build by Actaeon Industries. The unit is armed with the standard pair of head-mounted CIWS as well as a shield, retractable beam rifles, a pair of beam sabres, Anti-Armor Penetrators and a railgun. Unlike the original Duel, who's additional 'Assault Shroud' armor was not equipped with Phase Shift armor, all of the GAT-X1022's armor is equipped with Phase Shift. Assigned to the same squad as the GAT-X103AP Verde Buster and GAT-X105E Strike Noir. Piloted by Mudie Holcroft.
- GAT-X103 Buster [GS] - Artillery MS, equipped with two powerful cannons that can be combined together to form either a long range beam sniper rifle or a highly damaging beam shotgun. Stolen by ZAFT, later recovered.

The unit has all the same armament as the original Buster (two shoulder-mounted 6-tube 220mm missile launchers, a 350mm gun-launcher, and a 94mm high-energy beam cannon), only the previously hip-mounted gun-launcher and high-energy beam cannon have been moved to the shoulders. The hips now each mount an M9009B composite bayonet-equipped beam rifle, which can combine side-by-side to form a single beam cannon. Assigned to the same squad as the GAT-X102 Blu Duel and GAT-X105E Strike Noir. Piloted by Shams Coza.
- GAT-X105 Strike [GS] - Multi-mode MS, it uses power-up parts called Striker Packs to change configuration:

- YMAF-X6BD Zamza-Zah [GSD] - Flight-capable mobile armor, has a giant body of vaguely crab-like shape. Three pilots are needed to operate it (one for the main section, one for the claws, and one gunner). It is equipped with combat claws and cannons in the limbs, and a positron reflector in the head capable of deflecting positron beams. Destroyed by ZGMF-X56S Impulse.
- YMAG-X7F Gells-Ghe [GSD] - Base-defense mobile armor with many similarities to the YMAF-X6BD Zamza-Zah mobile armor, but ground-based. It needs three pilots to operate it and also has a positron reflector. The lower body is spider-like, and the upper body is a heavily modified Dagger torso. One unit was defeated by ZGMF-X23S Saviour.
While also in the Earth Alliance, the Eurasian Federation has their own mobile suits, the Composition Armament Tactical mobile suits. They are based on Acteton Industries' Gel-Finito.
- CAT1-X Hyperion [GSA] - Unlike the OMNI's other prototype mobile suits, they do not have PS armor, but instead utilize the "Armure Lumiere" light wave shield generator, which can either simply create a lightwave shield on the forearm (which protects against all attacks), or at the risk of running out of power, activate the "barrier" mode, which provide 360 degrees protection. It is armed with beam knives, a beam submachinegun, and beam cannons. The 360 degree barrier can only be activated for 5 minutes.
ZAFT mobile suits have the following designations and meanings:
- ZGM (Zero-Gravity Maneuver)
- ZGMF (Zero-Gravity Maneuver Fighter)
- ZGMT (Zero-Gravity Maneuver Trainer)
- AMF (Aerial Maneuver Fighter)
- AMA (Aerial Maneuver Attack)
- TFA (Terrestrial Fighter Artillery)
- TMF/A (Terrestrial Maneuver Fighter/Attacker)
- UWMF/S (UnderWater Maneuver Fighter/Striker(?))
- UMF (Underwater Maneuver Fighter)
- YMF (PrototYpe Maneuver Fighter)
- XMF (EXperiment Maneuver Fighter)
When ZAFT builds five new mobile suits based on the stolen MS units GAT-X102 Duel, GAT-X103 Buster, GAT-X207 Blitz and GAT-X303 Aegis, they develop the ZGMF-X_A series and re-designate the operating system for those suits as "Generation Unsubdued Nuclear Drive Assault Module" Complex (or "GUNDAM" Complex).
After the First Bloody Valentine War, the OS is updated to support the "Deuterion Beam Energy Supply System" that the newer ZAFT suits use, and the system the ZGMF-X_S series uses is re-designated as "Generation Unrestricted Network Drive Assault Module" . Later in the war a third version of the OS, "Gunnery United Nuclear-Deutrion Advanced Maneuver" System, is used in the new ZGMF-X42S Destiny and ZGMF-X666S Legend.
ZAFT experimental units generally have their numerical designation prefaced with "X" followed by a two or three digit type code and a letter designating their stage of development: "A" for First Stage, "S" for Second Stage and "T" for Third stage suits. For Second Stage units, the two-digit series designators include a type number (first digit) and a series number (second digit), so the ZGMF-X56S Impulse is Type 5, Series 6. The only exceptions are the ZGMF-X19A Infinite Justice and ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom due to the fact that they aren't constructed by ZAFT and are "resurrections" of the earlier prototypes. The Type numbers' significance for X_S-series Secon Stage units is as follows:
- 1: None; only first generations were given this number, but their model numbers are in sequence
- 2: Transforming Air/space-use units
- 3: Underwater-use units
- 4: General all-purpose-use units
- 5: Silhouette system units
- 6: DRAGOON system units
- 7: Unknown
- 8: Ground-use units
These prototype units are developed by the Earth Alliance, see that section for more details. They appear here because they were reverse engineered and become the basis for all future ZAFT mobile suit development.
