The GN-006/SA Cherudim Gundam SAGA (aka Cherudim Gundam SAGA, Cherudim SAGA, Seven Guns) is a variant of the GN-006 Cherudim Gundam that first appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam 00V. It later appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam 00I 2314 and "Gundam EX A", and is piloted by Leo Sieg and Lockon Stratos (Lyle Dylandy) respectively. It also appeared as a Gunpla in Gundam Build Fighters: Battlogue.

Technology & Combat Characteristic

Cherudim Gundam SAGA (Special Assault Gundam Arms) is a special equipment version of the Cherudim Gundam designed for infiltrating enemy facilities.[1][2] For this reason, it is armed with heavy weapons, and has a total of seven short-barrel guns.[1][2] Ian Vashti, designer of the machine, equipped it with seven guns as he was inspired by the "Seven Swords" of the GN-001 Gundam Exia, and in fact, the Cherudim SAGA's development code is "Seven Guns".[1] A specialized crystal sensor is located in the forehead for mid-close range combat, and in sniper mode, it slides down diagonally to around the eye level.[1][2]

The Cherudim's GN Shield Bits are removed in favor of a convenient GN Small Shield as they are not suitable for use in tight spaces.[1] With the lost of the GN Shield Bits, the suit's rear waist-mounted GN Drive is now protected by additional armor pieces and a GN Missile Container.[1] The suit's weight is also reduced with the removal of these bits.[1] Overall, the new parts for the SAGA equipment is kept to a minimum, with the majority being guns.[1] Although the Cherudim SAGA is developed for a different purpose, it still retains the long range capabilities of the original Cherudim, so the suit's strategy of shooting enemies from a distance is unchanged.[2]

Armaments

  • GN Beam Pistol
Same weapon as used by the GN-002 Gundam Dynames, a pair of them are stored in waist-mounted holsters.[1] Small and easy to handle[2], they have less power than standard GN Beam Rifles, but have a higher rate of fire.
  • GN Beam Pistol II
A pair of GN Beam Pistol II are stored on the Cherudim SAGA's back.[2] They have low firepower due to their small size, but are easy to handle and capable of rapid fire. Furthermore, the part below the pistol's barrel has anti-beam coating to block beam saber attacks, and can also parry other melee weapons.[2]
  • GN Missile Pod
Similar to the Cherudim, missile pods are located in the front skirt of the Cheridim SAGA.[1] The four pods will fold outwards to reveal a pair of GN Missiles in each pod, for a total of 8 missiles. The missiles are meant for short to mid-range use.
  • GN Assault Carbine
Cherudim SAGA's main weapon, it is a GN Sniper Rifle II modified with a shorter barrel for mid-range sniping missions.[1][2] Maintains a high accuracy rate[2] , and stored on the right shoulder when not in use.
  • GN Missile Container
Mounted on the rear waist GN Drive to protect it.[1] Stores GN Missiles in the main compartment, and has GN Mines on the back of the container's hatch, which opens in a top-down manner.[1][2] The GN Missiles in the container are different from those in the front skirt's GN Missile Pods, they are stubbier and thicker, and have no propulsion systems.[1] Instead, they are launched via particles released from an explosion, and are meant for attacking enemies in extreme close range. [1]
  • GN Small Shield
A small convenient shield mounted on the left shoulder, it can be removed and held in hand.[1] Capable of generating a GN Field for a short period of time, and the middle crystal structure contains sensors for enemy detection.[1]
  • GN Submachine Gun
A machine gun with the same level of ability as the vulcan mode of the Cherudim Gundam's GN Sniper Rifle II, it is for spraying a hail of beams over a wide area.[1][2] Two of these weapons are stored on the legs.[1]

Special Equipment & Features

When activated, the GN Drive maximizes its GN particle output which grants Cherudim Gundam SAGA three times the strength, speed, and firepower. Condensed GN particles saturate the MS frame, giving it a pink-reddish hue.

Variants

  • GN-006/SA Cherudim Gundam SAGA Type.GBF
Appearing in episode four of Gundam Build Fighters: Battlogue, it is a custom Gunpla of the Cherudim SAGA built by Meijin Kawaguchi III.[2] The only difference is the change from a blackish color scheme to an urban camouflage greyish color.[2]

History

Gundam 00V

Amy Zimbalist faced Cherudim Gundam SAGA with his GNX-604T Advanced GN-X when his base was attacked by the former. As the narrow passageways in the base didn't allow Amy to use his MS to its maximum potential, he decided to intercept the enemy outside. Amy attacked Cherudim SAGA as it left the base, and as expected, it fired a few shots before its rifle ran out of energy. Amy thought that it was his chance, but before he could attack, a new gun had appeared in the enemy's hands. This repeated several times, causing Amy to shout in frustration, "That's cheating! How much darn equipment does it have!" Amy's MS soon reached its pseudo-solar furnace operating time limit, and Cherudim SAGA then quietly left.
