The GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X (aka Gundam DX, Double X, DX) is a mobile suit produced by the New United Nations Earth in After War Gundam X, piloted by Garrod Ran.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The GX-9901-DX Gundam DX was created by mobile suit engineers of the newly formed New United Nations Earth (NUNE). NUNE recovered the wreckage of GX-9900 Gundam X used by Jamil Neate during the 7th Space War and transplanted some of its system to the new mobile suit dubbed Double X. Furthermore, as creating a completely brand new design was extremely difficult, the mechanics used the Gundam X as the base unit when developing the Double X.

An improved version of the Satellite System, the Satellite System Mk-II, was developed by the NUNE engineers for Gundam Double X. It consisted of six larger reflector panels on the suit's back, and several energy radiator plates on the limbs as part of the new improved cooling system to increase Double X's microwave energy absorption. Accompanying this increase in energy storage capacity, the single-barrelled Satellite Cannon was upgraded into the two-barrelled Twin Satellite Cannon, allowing Double X to unleash destructive force several times that of the Gundam X. The power of the Twin Satellite Cannon was demonstrated by Garrod Ran when he used it to destroy the island of Zonder Epta in one shot, and shown again when used to destroy the Space Revolutionary Army's Colony Laser. As the old system transplanted over still contains the brain wave patterns of Jamil Neate during the 7th Space War, Double X can use the Twin Satellite Cannon without a Newtype as its pilot.

The Gundam Double X is also equipped with two hyper beam sabers stored on its side skirt armor, two vulcan guns on the head, and two breast launchers on the torso. It can also use custom-made weapons including a buster rifle and defense plate. Because of its similarities to the Gundam X, the Gundam Double X can dock with a support aircraft developed for the Gundam X called the GS-9900 G-Falcon. While docked with the G-Falcon, the Double X is unable to use some of its weapons, but has the ability to use the weapons equipped to the aft section of the G-Falcon. Also, while joined with the G-Falcon, the Gundam Double X is able to safely re-enter Earth's atmosphere.

Like the original Gundam X, the Double X had a security key in the form of a G-Controller that is needed to activate and control it. However, while the Double X has its own new G-Controller, its base system is still the same as the Gundam X. This means that even without the Double X's G-Controller, it can still be operated by anyone who has an older-model G-Con of the type used in the GX - as demonstrated by Garrod, who stole the Double X in this manner.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Guns
Head-mounted vulcans used for suppressive fire or intercepting missiles.
  • Breast Launcher
Chest-mounted three-barrel multi-purpose launchers.
  • Buster Rifle
A beam rifle made specifically for Double X's use, it has several times the power of standard beam rifles. Its internal structure is simplified for ease of maintenance.
  • Defense Plate
Carried on the left forearm, this shielding equipment is custom made for Double X.
  • Hyper Beam Sword
Has a higher output than the Gundam X's beam sword, one is stored on each side skirt armor.
  • Twin Satellite Cannon
An improvement over Satellite Cannon, when the Twin Satellite Cannon is deployed, the cannons will be locked in place on the shoulders of the Gundam Double X. With both hands free, Gundam Double X is now capable of defending itself whilst charging the Twin Satellite Cannon.
  • Twin Beam Sword
An alternative to the hyper beam sword, unlike the former it has an emitter at both ends of its hilt, allowing a single weapon to create two beam blades.
  • Beam Javelin
A pole weapon that emits a short beam blade with high penetrating power.
  • G-Hammer
A flail attached to a handle via wire, used for bludgeoning attacks.
  • Rocket Launcher Gun
A hand-carried device that launches a rocket-propelled projectile.

Special Equipment & Features

  • G-Controller

History

Developed by Colonel Aimzat Kartral after the 7th Space War and during the New United Nations Earth power consolidation, the GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X was constructed on the island of Zonder Epta using data on the GX-9900 Gundam X piloted by Jamil Neate.

The only known working Gundam Double X was captured by the Vulture crew of the Freeden and piloted by Garrod Ran. The Gundam Double X suffered massive damage when Garrod and the Frost Brothers fired on each other with their Satellite Cannons which resulted in a massive explosion, destroying the lunar station. The Gundams had great amounts of damage in the final battle of the 8th Space War. The damaged Gundam Double X was abandoned in space following the final battle.

Notes and Trivia

  • In Gundam vs Gundam NEXT PLUS, Gundam Double X will have a different victory pose for each weapon the player finishes the enemy off with. Mainly the Satellite Cannon, Satellite Cannon with G-Falcon (Assist), Beam Sword, Beam Rifle, Beam Javelin or fists (L attack).
  • There is an exclusive ability called the Moon System for Double X in Super Robot Wars Z. The moon system allows Double X to use the fully charged Twin Satellite Cannon when the moon shines. The Twin Satellite Cannon has the longest radius of MAP attack compared to the others in the game.
  • Despite it having the twin satellite cannon as its main weapon, in Gundam Memories: Tatakai no Kioku Gundam Double X is categorized as a "short" unit instead of "long" unit. In the game, the Double X is referred to as DX Gundam.
    • It should be noted however that the Twin Satellite Cannon can only be used as a charged attack in Awakening mode and as the last attack in its SP attack.
  • In some Super Robot Wars series (R for example), together with its predecessor the Gundam X, the Double X can launch a combination attack called Double Satellite Cannon, something never seen in the TV series. Moreover, the Double X can shoot the Twin Satellite Cannon together with the G-Bits in Super Robot Wars R as well. Also, the Double X, along with the Gundam X, does not use a "Moon" system for charging up the Satellite Cannon, instead using a counter system that adds a charge every turn.
