Technology & Combat Characteristics
The EMS-TC02 Phantom was the second Thousand Custom unit to be developed by the Jupiter Foundation. It has incorporated the Minovsky Drive technology and was originally meant for the sole purpose of travelling between Earth and Jupiter. But in the case of combat, it has been given combat capabilities. As a Thousand Custom, the suit is supposed to be on par to an army of a thousand Mobile Suits. It is ultimately inferior to the LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam.
It was developed from the Minovsky Drive technology from the F99 Record Breaker stolen by Callisto's Shadow. The technology was then incorporated into an Amakusa. Because Jupiter did not have the resources to create a perfected Minovsky Drive, this resulted in an incomplete Mobile Suit with the lack of balance between the two technologies and was abandoned as a failure. Under the cover in the head is the mono-eye camera commonly used in Jovian Mobile Suits.
- Flame Sword
- A powerful high output beam saber which can generate a flame-like beam blade. Like other beam sabers, it is used as a close combat weapon, and is capable of destroying I-Fields.
- Butterfly Buster
- Similar to the Ghost, the Phantom is equipped with two Butterfly Busters.
- Minovsky Drive
- With the Minovsky Drive, the Phantom could generate the Wings of Light similar to the Record Breaker and Victory 2 Gundam. Its Wings of Light however are emitted in a ghostly fashion as its integration to the Mobile Suit is imperfect, fitting for its name with about 50% the strength of the Victory 2's. There is a time-limit of 15 minutes in using the Wings of Light due to the imperfect reverse-engineering, but a cooling system has been installed to remedy the limitation though it extends another 15 minutes. It can also generate an I-Field barrier that was barely able to weaken a VSBR shot.
