Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Barbatos Mirage incorporates nearly all of the technology and characteristics of the GGV-000 Barbatos. However, despite being created afterward the Barbatos Mirage is overall inferior to the original GGV-000 Barbatos when it comes to sheer combat specs. Despite this the Barbartos Mirage is still a formidable machine and can, like the GGV-000 Barbatos, transform into Peacock Mode and it utilizes the same standard equipment as the GGV-000 Barbatos. The Barbatos Mirage also uses the same Hyper Nano-Skin System as the GGV-000 Barbatos making it an extremely durable due its ability to regenerate through vast amounts of damage inflicted upon it.
- Beam Saber
- The Barbatos Mirage is equipped with a beam saber, mainly used for throwing as part of its powerful attack.
- Feather Mega Beam Cannon
- The unit is armed with twelve Feather Mega Beam Cannon on it's shoulders which unfolds and fires with a high power output. It also serves as boosters when the unit is in flight and as part of its powerful attack.
- Head Beam Cannon
- Like the GGV-000 Barbatos, the Barbatos Mirage is also equipped with a powerful beam cannon on its head though it is still only usable in Peacock Mode.
- Hyper Nano-Skin System
- The same version used by the GGV-000 Barbatos, this also allows the Barbatos Mirage to enjoy rabid repairs as well.
The Barbatos Mirage is an imperfect version of the original Barbatos, created by the old Generation System on the Moon to act as a last resort defense proxy. The Barbatos Neuro inside manages system operations, much like its predecessor.
As with the rest of the defenses in the old Generation System as well as the System itself, the existence of the Barbatos Mirage was not revealed until Code Phoenix and Aplodia Neuro were led to it by Code Amelias. Upon Amelias's defeat, the loss of her powers changed her into a helpless child and sought out the core of the old Generation System to link with it and prevent Earth's destruction.
With Phoenix chasing Amelias down due to the danger of such an endeavor, the old Generation System triggered many of its traps, the Barbatos Mirage being the last. At the same time the System deployed the Barbatos Mirage, AI-operated Gundams began swarming its would-be destructors (the player, so to speak), but it was ultimately defeated with a barrage of overwhelming power.
The resulting destruction of the Barbatos Neuro inhabiting the machine immediately caused the old Generation System to begin breaking down as Phoenix, Amelias, and the player's team fled the area.
