The MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame "Powered Red" is a Mobile Suit in the manga Gundam SEED Astray R and in the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Astray R photonovel.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

After the Power Loader was destroyed by ZAFT's ZGMF-X11A Regenerate Gundam, Lowe received a set of powerful new arms from Jean Carry. With them on, the Red Frame is called "Powered Red" and can wield the "150 Gerbera Straight" on its own, as well as deliver a devastating punch that Lowe named 'Red Flame'. These arms use new power cylinders created by Jean and are connected to the shoulder joints as well as to the Red Frame's external connector and backpack via a back joint, resulting in the removal of the beam sabers. When used at full power, various parts of the arms will open up for improved heat dissipation efficiency.

Eventually, Jean successfully miniaturize the power cylinders and they are integrated into the Red Frame's normal arms, enhancing the power of its katana slashes. Although the optional arms are now obsolete, they are still stored aboard the ReHOME and Lowe later upgraded them to be 3 times stronger in preparation for the "Festival of Red" event in South America. During the event, Powered Red is also equipped with two Caletvwlchs instead of the "Gerbera Straight" Katana.


  • "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS
Mounted in the Red Frame's head are two "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS guns. These light projectile weapons can be used to intercept missiles, stop enemy units from closing in, etc.
  • "Gerbera Straight"
A mobile suit-sized katana that is extremely sharp, and does not rely on the kinetic energy of a high-speed swing to cut. Unlike the normal Red Frame, Powered Red mounts the "Gerbera Straight" behind the left shoulder.
  • "150 Gerbera Straight"
Formally known as "Gerbera Straight" Vol.2, it is a huge, 150 meters long version of "Gerbera Straight" forged from a large piece of rare metal that Lowe's gang found on earth. Due to its sheer weight, the standard Red Frame cannot weld it effectively. However, the Powered Red has sufficient strength to wield it easily.
  • "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power]
During the story of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ASTRAY Princess of the Sky, the blade of the "150 Gerbera Straight" broke and Lowe modified the remaining hilt into a weapon known as "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power]. A "Lohengrin" Positron Blaster Cannon powered by its own nuclear engine is installed, and when in use, parts of the "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power] will open up, and the cannon muzzle in the pommel is revealed when the seeming ornamental piece covering it is removed. When required, the ornamental piece can separate and transform into three items for Powered Red's use - Gebera Shield, Gerbera Tool A and Gebera Tool B. The "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power] can also function as a large battery, greatly increasing Powered Red's operational time.
  • Gerbera Shield
Capable of generating an "Armure Lumiere" mono-phase lightwave shield, it is one of three items that made up the ornamental piece on the "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power]'s pommel. This shield is handheld when in use, and can also be stored on the Powered Red's back.
  • Gerbera Tool A
A pair of large knuckle duster-like equipment with a movable blade on each end for cutting objects caught in their grip. The two blades on each Gerbera Tool A can be retracted when not in use. One of three items that made up the ornamental piece on the "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power]'s pommel.
  • Gerbera Tool B
A pair of large pickaxe-like equipment, they are used for tasks like crushing bedrocks. The top half of each Gerbera Tool B is foldable. One of three items that made up the ornamental piece on the "150 Gerbera Straight" [Power]'s pommel.
  • Caletvwlch
A customizable multipurpose equipment created by Lowe and mass produced by Junk Guild. The Caletvwlch is meant for cutting and induction welding, but can be used for combat if the limiter is disabled via a voice command. However, doing so would contravene the "prohibition of armed civilian MS" provisions, except when it is used for self-defense. The equipment normally consists of two blades and a welding torch, and is powered by an internal battery. During combat, it can function as a gun (aka G mode, where the welding torch functions as a beam rifle) or can be reconfigured into a sword (aka S mode).
It also has a scattering device that releases Mirage Colloid particles to help maintain the suit's balance while it moves in mid-air and to allow it to remain stationary in the air with ease. The particles can also create an air current to propel the MS and be used to detect any movements in the surrounding area. An unintended side effect is that the scattered Mirage Colloid particles can disrupt the Mirage Colloid stealth system of other MS nearby.
There is also the full disable mode, whereby the safety limit of the Caletvwlch is disregarded allowing it to fire a dangerously high amount of energy at its target, destroying it in one hit. However, doing this damages the Caletvwlch and renders it unusable.

Special Attacks

  • Red Flame
A powerful punch executed by Power Red, it is typically aimed at the enemy machine's weak spot. The punch is capable of damaging a machine's internal components, even ones protected with phase shift armor, and can send the machine flying back.

Special Equipment

  • External connector
A connector for attaching additional equipment to the back of the suit. It is similar in function to the hardpoint on the back of the Strike Gundam. The connector is exposed when the backpack is lowered to the waist.


After the Power Loader was destroyed, the Red Frame was fitted with new arms powered by high-output power cylinders supplied by Jean Carry. The Powered Red played a key part in the battle to defeat Ash Gray and the ZGMF-X11A Regenerate Gundam. Specifically the Powered Red, alongside the MBF-P03secondL Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L, had the job of battling the Regenerate once its home base was discovered. Working together, the two Astrays were able to defeat the powerful Regenerate as their allies dealt with Genesis Alpha, the Regenerate's home base. After this battle, Lowe reverts the Red Frame back into its normal form and the arms are left in ReHOME's storage room as Jean developed smaller but just as powerful power cylinders that are integrated into Red Frame's normal arms.

Prior to the "Festival of Red", which is one of the events in the South America's "Civilian MS Exhibition", Lowe took out the obsolete arms and increased its power to 3 times the original before fitting it onto the Red Frame together with 2 Caletvwlchs. The event was later disrupted by MWF-JGP99G Gundam Astray Violence Geist and Lowe used the Powered Red to defeat it.

Notes & Trivia

  • The "Powered Red" is the ultimate/final form of Astray Red Frame in Super Robot Wars W. Unlike the original Astray Red Frame, the Astray Powered Red Frame was able to fly without any particular parts or swing the giant 150 meter 'Gerbera Straight' katana in the game. It is also able to perform a combination attack with its sister unit, the Astray Blue Frame Second L.
