The (read as "Turn Delta") is a Mobile Suit featured in the manga series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73 Δ ASTRAY. The unit is mainly piloted by Ergnes Brahe.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Based on the MWF-JG73 Civilian Astray JG Custom, the is developed by Lowe Guele (hence the 'L' in the model code) using both earth sphere and martin technologies. It serves as Ergnes's personal unit after his Δ Astray is heavily damaged. Like the Δ Astray, has independent atmospheric flight capabilities and is also equipped with "Voiture Lumiere" light propulsion system, but the suit runs on conventional battery pack as removing the former's nuclear reactor might trigger its self-destruct system. The suit's armaments consists of a beam rifle, 2 beam sabers fixed on the arms and the lumiere shield, a beam shield system, built into the two multi-functional movable arms at the back of the suit. These golden arms also contains the suit's thrusters as well as the emitters of the "Voiture Lumiere" system. The ∇'s "Voiture Lumiere" system is a unique variant, it can make use of the suit's power to provide a speed boost or propel the suit by capturing solar winds. The system can also receive the energy transmitted from Δ Astray, which is mainly used to recharge ∇'s battery, allowing it to use the "Voiture Lumiere" at full power to boost its speed. The suit's name is seemingly derived from the shape that the golden movable arms normally adopt.


  • Beam Saber
Close combat beam weapon of the MS, mounts 2 beam sabers fixed to the underside of the forearms.
  • Beam Rifle
A custom beam rifle created for , it fires an energy beam that is highly effective against most targets, but is less effective against targets designed to take beam attacks, such as laminated armor or shields treated with an anti-beam coating. It seems to be a 'KMS71/J Beam Pistol' with new parts added to the front and back.
  • Lumiere Shield
Installed in the movable golden arms on the suit's back, one emitter per arm, it is capable of generating a beam shield to protect the suit. The lumiere shield is functionally similar to the "Armure Lumiere" mono-phase lightwave shield system, as the beam emitted can also take on other shapes and be used as an offensive weapon. The system is usable while the "Voiture Lumiere" system is activated, allowing to charge at high speed while protected from the enemy's range attack.

Special Equipment & Features

The ∇ is equipped with a variant of the "Voiture Lumiere" light propulsion system which seems to be a combination of the system used in the GSX-401FW Stargazer Gundam and GSF-YAM01 Δ Astray. It has 2 different modes of operations. In the first mode, the system seems to give the suit a speed boost when activated through using the suit's power. In the second mode, the system generates a curtain of light via the back mounted movable arms that then captures solar winds to propel the suit forward. The curtain of light can also be used to receive the energy transmitted from Δ Astray, which can recharge ∇'s battery and allows the suit to use the "Voiture Lumiere" system at full power to boost its speed.


The was first used by Ergnes Brahe's older sister Setona Winters but was then given to Ergnes who used it after the loss of the Δ Astray. Ergnes would use the in several additional encounters with the Phantom Pain forces that continued to pursue them while they were on earth, until he ultimately defeated both Emilio Bloderick, Dana Snip and their respective MS with some help from some Junk Guild Pilots. Some time later, Ergnes was attacked by Librarian Works which ultimately resulted in some damage being caused to the and as a result he visited Lowe in order for some repairs to be carried out. However upon hearing the gravity of the situation, he offered ∇'s Voiture Lumiere Engine to Lowe in order to upgrade the MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame. With the Voiture Lumiere salvaged and installed into the Tactical Arms IIL and alongside "Tiger Pierce" katana left behind by Un'no after their previous battle, the MBF-P02Kai Gundam Astray Red Frame Kai was born.
