GN-0000/XN XN 00 Gundam (aka XN 00 Gundam, pronounced Sun Double-Oh Gundam), is the 00 Gundam combined with the GN021XN XN unit.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The unit is the combination of 00 Gundam with the GN021XN XN unit installed on its back, the 0 Raiser isn't present in this configuration. The peripheral components that define the XN unit remains with 00 Gundam, and grants it the use of the pair of GN Buster Sword IIIs and another two manipulator arms for a four handed combat style.
- GN Buster Sword III
- Two large swords that are stored on the back of the XN 00 Gundam. They can be combined to form a double-sided buster sword which rivals the GN Buster Sword II of the GN-0000/7S 00 Gundam Seven Sword in size. It is a melee weapon with top-class destructive power, but its large size made it unwieldy and hence limited its use.
- The utilization of synchronized GN Drives can create awesome power, but was never successfully developed until now. 00's synchronized Twin Drive System allows for high speed combat and immediate GN Field generation, as well as increased particle output. The power output is so high that it can bend GN energy at a focal direction and push back or block beam shots.
- The 00 Gundam is capable of generating its own GN Field, created directly from the twin GN drives. The shoulder mounted GN Drives can make a 180 degree face-forward-turn that can create a barrier-like wall of GN particles. The field wall is generated by the swirling GN particles directly from the GN Drives. The 00 can generate a traditional full sphere particle GN Field, depending on the combat situation.
- Trans Am works conjunction with the 00's Twin Drive System, allowing the 00 to utilize GN energy at unstable levels. 00 Gundam's Trans-Am system is capable of generating GN particle output to 2nd power. Due to the experimental design of the Twin Drive System, Trans Am can destabilize the synchronizing process of the GN Drives and/or overwhelm the MS frame and cause an overload, the worse case scenario being the self-destruction of the GN Drives. It was because of such mechanical concerns that Trans-Am was highly recommended not to be used until the system complications are corrected. Ultimately 00 Gundam's technical complications couldn't be corrected without the addition of new equipment. The solution(s) to 00 Gundam's Trans-Am system came in the form of energy stabilizer equipment, built onto 0 Raiser.
