The GNY-003FB Black Gundam Abulhool Type F (aka Black Gundam Abulhool Type F, Black Abulhool) is the Innovators replicated variant of GNY-003F Gundam Abulhool Type F in Mobile Suit Gundam 00F.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Fighter Mode

Gundam Abulhool's fighter mode resembles to a F-22 Raptor, fast and highly maneuverable. Abulhool alone has only GN Vulcans for dog-fighting, but it can carry missile pods (seen in the manga). The nose of its fighter form has head for visual sensors. One feature that the Abulhool possesses that makes it unique among the Gundam units is that it has a secondary propulsion system that utilizes plasma jets instead of the standard GN vernier. This is likely a feature installed to help hide the fact that Abulhool is a Gundam when in fighter jet mode.

MS Mode

Abulhool's melee combat capabilities are limited to only kicks and relying on its weapon(s) packages for defense/offense. Abulhool is the only mobile unit with two heads. The chest area of Abulhool is also the nose in its fighter jet form, there the extra head can provide additional sensory data for the pilot to use.

Armaments

  • GN Vulcan
These weapons are smaller cousins to the GN Beam weapon. Typically locations include head and wrist mounted system, both ensuring a wide field of fire. Purely secondary weapons, they are used to engage soft targets, and in a defensive capacity.
  • 3-tube GN Missile Launcher
The Abulhool is capable of being equipped with the same three-tube GN missile launcher that the Kyrios uses. The missile launchers are mounted to the underside of the wings.

Special Equipment & Features

History

The Black Gundam Abulhool first appeared in chapter 19, accompanying the rest of the Innovators' GNY series to destroy Fon Spaak in the Gundam Astraea Type F2 and Hixar Fermi in the Gundam Sadalsuud Type F. While Black Sefer Rasiel battled Gundam Sadalsuud Type F. The rest battled Gundam Astraea Type F2. Fon takes down the Black Gundam Abulhool and of the rest of Black Gundams single handledly by himself using Trans-Am.

Some time afterwards, Black Abulhool was salvaged and repaired by Fon for his own uses and was given the Fereshte's paint scheme.

Notes & Trivia

  • Abulhool is Arabic in origin from abu elhool literally meaning "father of fear" used to refer to the Great Sphinx. And it is associated with the Tarot Card: The Chariot.
  • The mobile suit mode of the GNY-003 Gundam Abulhool bears some similarity to the GERWALK mode of the variable fighters of the Macross franchise.
  • Gundam Abulhool Flight Mode looks similar to real-life 5th generation jet fighter, such as the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.
