The Astray Green Frame is a Mobile Suit in the manga series Gundam SEED Frame Astrays.

Techology & Combat Characteristics

One of five identical prototype combat mobile suits developed by Orb using stolen data from the Earth Alliance's G Project. Gundam Astray Green Frame features the same weaponry as the other prototype Astray units, including the two head mounted "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS, two beam sabers, a Type 71 beam rifle and a physical shield. Besides these weapons, the Green Frame is also equipped with a Twin sword rifle, a weapon that can function as a beam rifle, an axe or as a twin beam sword. Another feature that Green Frame share with the other prototype Astray units is the movable backpack that can be lowered to the back skirt armor, allowing the mounting of additional equipment on its back.

The Green Frame uses a different model of sensor units that makes its eyes yellow instead of green like the other Gundam Astrays. It also has an advanced combat support AI, which is an improved version of the A.I. system featured on the MBF-02 Strike Rouge. Green Frame's A.I. system is advanced enough to predict Gai Murakumo's movements in the MBF-P03third Gundam Astray Blue Frame Third when he was on the offensive, allowing Trojan Noiret to evade all of Gai's attacks. Despite this, when Trojan switched to the offensive, Gai swiftly defeated him. Due to this, Green Frame is considered to be a defensive mobile suit, to be used for protecting others and not for offensive purpose.

Armaments

  • "Igelstellung" 75mm Multi-Barrel CIWS
Mounted in the Green Frame's head are two "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS guns. These light projectile weapons are used to intercept missiles and to destroy lightly armored vehicles, although it is classified as Anti Air.
  • Beam Saber
Green Frame is equipped with two back-mounted beam sabers for close combat.
  • Shield
The Green Frame can hold a single physical shield for defense on its left arm.
  • Type 71 Beam Rifle
The standard beam rifle used by all the prototype Astray units. It fires an energy beam that is highly effective against most targets, such as mobile suits, but is less effective against targets designed to take beam attacks, such as laminated armor or shields treated with an anti-beam coating.
  • Twin Sword Rifle
A 3-in-1 weapon used by Green Frame, it can function as a beam rifle, an axe or as a twin beam sword. When used as a twin beam sword, the beam sword emitters will slide forward and the weapon can be held using the rifle's mode handle or by the back of rifle. In axe mode, the barrel of the rifle becomes the handle.

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 back skirt armor.
  • Combat support A.I.
An artificial intelligence system developed by Lowe based on a similar system installed on the MBF-02 Strike Rouge. It can predict an opponent's offensive move and helps the pilot avoid it. It is however useless when the pilot goes on the offensive. Due to this system, Green Frame becomes a defensive MS.

History

In CE 71, the Orb Union's Morgenroete corporation built five Gundam Astray prototype mobile suits at Heliopolis, the MBF-P01 Astray Gold Frame, MBF-P02 Astray Red Frame, MBF-P03 Astray Blue Frame, MBF-P04 Astray Green Frame and MBF-P05 Gundam Astray Unit 5 (which was later modified into MBF-P05LM Gundam Astray Mirage Frame), which were based on the five G Project Gundams that they assisted the Earth Alliance's Atlantic Federation in creating. They successfully copied the EA's beam rifle and saber technology, but Morgenroete did not have access to the Phase Shift armor design, and compensated by making the Gundam Astray units lighter and more agile than their EA counterparts.

On January 25, CE 71, ZAFT's attack on Heliopolis to steal the Alliance Gundams also unknowingly interrupted the Astray project. In order to hide their progress, Orb's officials decided to destroy the Astray lab. However all Astray prototypes survived and fell into the hands of different factions. In CE 73, Rondo Mina Sahaku handed over the Astray Green Frame in her possession to God Hand Barry Ho as part of her new policy to protect those who follow their own beliefs that she had stated earlier in her "Declaration of the Heavens" speech. The suit was originally in unassembled form, but was assembled with help from Lowe Guele. Barry later gives the Green Frame to Trojan Noiret, a member of a guerilla force, for use against the ZAFT and EA forces in the Republic of East Asia. Trojan used his suit against Gai Murakumo of the Serpent Tail mercenary group twice.
