The GN-XXXB Gundam Rasiel Black (aka Black Rasiel), is the Innovators' replicated variant of GN-XXX Gundam Rasiel. The unit was piloted by a clone of Hixar Fermi loyal to Innovators. This version's remains were captured by Fereshte.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
Gundam Rasiel's main armament consists of basic MS compliments of a beam saber, beam rifle and shield. For additional firepower, up to five GN Sefers can sortie and deliver their GN Proto Bits to form five different combinations of the Gundam Sefer Rasiel form. The GN Proto Bits are remotely controlled weapons which are each equipped with a beam gun. Each Sefer unit carries a pair of proto-bits and Sefer Rasiel can control up to eight additional bits (either mounted on Sefer Rasiel itself or delivered by additional GN Sefers).
- GN Beam Saber
- The beam saber concentrates GN particles to form a heated beam for laser-like cutting. The weapon is capable of cutting most enemy targets and similar (if not exactly) to the beam swords used by the other Gundams.
- GN Beam Rifle
- The beam rifle is a mid-to-long range weapon. Unlike Dynames, this Rifle may fire powerful pulse shots, but Rasiel wasn't configured for sniping. Under a logical tactical presumption, the weapon is meant to anticipate incoming enemy MS units with long range beam firing.
- GN Shield
- The GN Shield for Rasiel is particularly small and light. The shield is designed to resist light firearms. Precision blocking is used as the shield is too small for fending off more powerful GN-powered weaponry.
Special Equipment & Features
A black version of Gundam Rasiel has been seen piloted by an Innovator clone of Hixar, accompanied by a clone Grave piloting a black version of GN Sefer. Both pilots battled Hixar with GNY-002F Gundam Sadalsuud Type F however they were no match for the original Hixar and were defeated.
Notes & Trivia
- The black color scheme is reminiscent of the Titans' color scheme for the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.
