The FXet-565 Cosmograsper is a space support fighter in the Cosmic Era timeline.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
Like its Earthbound counterpart, the FX-550 Skygrasper, the Cosmograsper is well armed for combat. Its weaponry is almost identical to the Skygrasper's except it carries two gatling guns instead of having weapon bays. The Cosmograsper also retains the ability to mount Striker Packs for additional weaponry and features. While most of the Striker Packs used by the Cosmograsper are the same as the one used on the Skygrasper, the space fighter can use an improved model of the Aile Striker pack, which lacks beam sabers to increase its endurance. Besides these features, the Cosmograsper also uses rocket thrusters instead of the jet engines of the Skygrasper.
- Beam Cannon
- Medium Caliber Cannon
- 20mm Machine Gun

Special Equipment & Features
- The Cosmograsper is designed with multiple Hardpoints for mounting Striker Packs. In doing so, it allows the Cosmograsper to use these armaments to increase its overall firepower and combat potential, while still fulfilling its role as both a support fighter and a Striker Pack delivery system for Striker Pack compatible MS.
In CE 71, the Earth Alliance successfully built five mobile suits as part of their G Project. One such unit was the GAT-X105 Strike, which had the ability to mount Striker Packs to adapt to different combat situations. Additionally, the EA also developed the Skygrasper, an atmospheric support fighter for the Strike, which also had the ability to mount these packs. Afterwards, the space-use Cosmograsper variant is created for use in support of the mass-produced GAT-01A1 Dagger.
So far, no information about the Cosmograsper and its missions are known.
