Technology & Combat Characteristics
This Mobile Fighter, which represents the space colony of Neo Mexico, is an amphibious type specially designed for underwater combat. The hat-like structure atop its head houses a rotating fan, which allows the Tequila Gundam to create a powerful whirlpool and pull enemy mobile fighters into the water. While its defensive capabilities are relatively poor, the Tequila Gundam can block attacks with the reinforced armor on its shoulders and forearms, and its ten head vulcans provide 180-degree protection.

Neo Mexico's GF13-049NM Tequila Gundam was designed to take advantage of the skills of its powerful pilot, Chico Rodriguez. All Gundam Fighters had reasons for entering the 13th Gundam Fight, and for Chico, his reason was to escape to Earth with his sister Gina. After Gina contracted a terminal disease on the Neo Mexico space colony, Chico became a Gundam Fighter so that they could go down to Neo Mexico on Earth and spend what time they had left on the ocean. However, Neo Mexico did not like the idea of its Gundam Fighter escaping and killing off his opponents outside the Gundam Fight. This changed after an encounter with Domon Kasshu and his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam. After convincing Chico to join him in a Gundam Fight, Domon partially destroyed the Tequila Gundam so that Chico could escape and live with his sister. To the eyes of the Neo Mexican authorities, Chico died valiantly fighting for his country.
