Technology & Combat Characteristics
This mobile fighter represents the space colony of Neo Holland. While its chest and shoulders house several beam cannons, the Nether Gundam's main weapon is the powerful Nether Typhoon, generated by the spinning windmill blades on its chest. The mobile fighter can also transform into an airborne flight mode, in which its legs retract and the windmill blades slide underneath the torso to serve as propellers.
- Mega Beam Cannon
- Several mega beam cannons are mounted on the chest and shoulders.
- Nether Typhoon
- A mighty wind attack is generated by spinning the windmill blades mounted on the Nether Gundam's chest.
For the 13th Gundam Fight, Neo Holland took an interesting strategic approach to get to the Finals by not participating in the Gundam Fight at all. To accomplish this, the Nether Gundam was designed as a transforming mobile suit that could disguise itself as a windmill, which it accomplished for the first eleven months of the Gundam Fight.
By hiding in a field and not fighting other Gundam Fighters, pilot Paul Bauhoben technically qualified for the Finals. However, this tactic could not make up for his poor skills as a fighter. Though the Nether Gundam was armed with mega beam cannons and possessed a powerful Nether Typhoon attack, it was inferior in both fighter and MF to every other combatant; in every match he fought, Paul was quickly defeated by his opponents. His first known opponent was George de Sand, piloting the GF13-009NF Gundam Rose, early in the Finals. Nonetheless, Neo Holland's objective was achieved; their colony had already gained significant political standing by simply making it to the finals.
After the 13th Gundam Fight ended, Neo Holland deployed 39 mass-produced versions of the Nether Gundam as part of the World Gundam Federation that fought to defend Earth from the JDG-00X Devil Gundam.
