GAT-X133 Sword Calamity is a prototype close-quarters combat mobile suit, it was first featured in the original design series SEED-MSV. The unit is piloted by Rena Imelia, Edward Harrelson and Four Socius.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

While the original GAT-X131 Calamity is an artillery mobile suit, the Sword Calamity is primarily designed for close combat with armament derived from that of the GAT-X105+AQM/E-X02 Sword Strike. Its main weapon is a pair of large anti-ship swords similar to that used by Sword Strike, but they now also function as laser guns. Other close combat weaponry includes pairs of beam boomerangs, rocket anchors and combat knives. Sword Calamity retains the energy cannon of the original Calamity, but its power is reduced in exchange for longer operational time. In addition, the mobile suit's fire control system and vetronics has been modified to fit its new role as a close combat unit. Three Sword Calamity units are produced in total.

Armaments

  • "Armor Schneider" Combat Knife
A close combat weapon stored on the suit's legs, they are simply enlarged knives and mainly serve as back-up weapons.
  • "Midas Messer" Beam Boomerang
A set of two "Midas Messer" beam boomerangs derived from Sword Strike's is mounted on the Sword Calamity, with each shoulder holding one. It is a throwing weapon with a small beam blade that can return to the owner, often catching enemy units by surprise.
  • "Panzer Eisen" Rocket Anchor
Sword Calamity is also equipped with two forearm mounted "Panzer Eisen" rocket anchors, which are of the same type as the one used on the Sword Strike Gundam. They are grappling claws that can be fired to hit or grab an enemy unit and then retrieved on a line.
  • "Schwert Gewehr" Anti-ship Sword
The main weapon of the Sword Calamity is its two "Schwert Gewehr" anti-ship swords, which are very similar to the one used by the Sword Strike Gundam. The only difference lies in the fact that these swords also double as laser guns. The laser gun's emitter is at the bottom of the handle and it can be fired when handheld or while mounted on the backpack.
  • "Scylla" 580mm Multi-phase Energy Cannon
The other ranged energy weapon installed on the Sword Calamity (besides the laser guns on the anti-ship swords) is the chest mounted "Scylla" 580mm multi-phase energy cannon. It is the same weapon as the one used by the original Calamity, but its maximum output is only 30% of the original. This allows more energy to be used for powering the suit, extending its operational time.

System Features

History

Built as a close-combat variant of the GAT-X131 Calamity, the Sword Calamity is piloted by Naturals and Combat Coordinator instead of "Biological CPUs". Sword Calamity is completed at around the same time period as the original Calamity and 3 units are produced in total. The first unit is created mainly to gather data and is put into storage after that. The other 2 units are deployed in combat after numerous tests and are piloted Earth Alliance ace Edward Harrelson and Four Socius. During the Third Battle of Victoria, these 2 units are placed under the command of Rondo Gina Sahaku and play an important role in the EA victory over ZAFT. Four Socius and his Sword Calamity is eventually given to Orb's Rondo Sahaku faction by Muruta Azrael, and later attacks the Kusanagi to kill Cagalli Yula Athha on Gina's order, but the plan is thwarted by Gai Murakumo. Edward's unit takes part in the Second Battle of Jachin Due and during the battle, Ed is convinced that he should rebel against the Alliance. After the war, Ed defects to the United States of South America, and the first Sword Calamity is taken out of storage and assigned to Earth Alliance ace, Rena Imelia, who is sent after him. Ed defeats Rena in combat, but both pilots are injured. The damaged Sword Calamitys are salvaged by Kaite Madigan and added to his MS collection, however he promises Jess Rabble that he will give Ed's unit back to him if he ever needs it again.
