The LM111E03 Gunblaster (or Gun Blastor) is a mass production mobile suit that appeared in Mobile Suit Victory Gundam.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

To meet the need for space-use mobile suits, the League Militaire modified their ground-use LM111E02 Gun-EZ into the space combat LM111E03 Gunblaster by adding a pair of "twin tail" booster binders. The technology behind the binders has existed since the Gryps conflict of U.C. 0087, and involves increasing the number of movable limbs on a mobile suit thus increasing the effectiveness of the AMBAC system. The binders serve to increase the mobile suit's overall maneuverability, rocket thrust, and fuel capacity which in turn increased the overall operational range of the mobile suit.

Aside from the addition of the "twin tail" booster binders and the increase in performance and a slight change to the color scheme there is little difference between the Gunblaster and its predecessor. The Gunblaster retains all the armaments of the Gun-EZ, however there is a slight addition to its optional armaments in the form of a spider net, a weapon probably designed to disable a mobile suit for missions involving the capture of a target. The suit also has leg-mounted hardpoints to carry additional weapons and equipment.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Gun
A standard armament of the mobile suits descended from the Earth Federation Forces's RX series is a pair of head mounted 60mm vulcan guns. These shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire but little power and can't damage the thick armor of a mobile suit, though they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. They are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • Beam Saber
The beam saber is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor, it emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The Gunblaster is equipped with a beam saber stored in the right shoulder storage rack.
  • 2-tube Multi-Launcher
The left shoulder of the Gunblaster is equipped with a 2-tube multi-launcher. The multi-launcher can be loaded with multiple types of missiles to adapt to mission requirements.
  • Beam Shield
Unlike an I-field generator, which is effective only against beam attacks, the beam shield blocks both beam and projectile weapons. The beam shield generates a plane of energy similar to the blade of a beam saber. This plane is divided into multiple sections, which can be turned on or off as needed to conserve energy. Individual sections are also automatically deactivated whenever they're in danger of coming into contact with the mobile suit itself. The beam shields used by the Gunblaster are optional equipment that can be mounted on either arm.
  • Spider Net
  • Beam Rifle
A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle. Capable of firing concentrated mega particles, attacks from a beam rifle can damage any ordinary armor that has not been specially treated to resist it.
  • Beam Bazooka
A beam bazooka utilizes the same technology as a beam rifle, just on a larger scale. Because it produces a larger beam beam bazooka's deal more damage overall than a beam rifle.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Hardpoints
An attachment point for weapons, shields, spare ammunition, or optional mission-specific equipment. Hardpoints can also be used to store carried weapons when a mobile suit needs its manipulators free for other purposes.

History

As the war with the Zanscare Empire and BESPA built units continued to rage on in space it became apparent to the League Militaire that their units had to be upgraded in order to deal with the enemy effectively. Because the League Militaire was limited in its resources its engineers decided to upgrade the existing LM111E02 Gun-EZ into the unit known as the LM111E03 Gunblaster which easily performed on par with many of the Zanscare's Empire's units. After evaluating the effectiveness of the new machine the League Militaire upgraded all of their Gun-EZ mobile suits to Gunblasters to continue service as the main front line units as the front lines moved to space.
