Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Gilla-Shiki is very similar to its base Gunpla, the MSN-001M Mega-Shiki, except for its new color scheme and the replacement of the Mega Ride Launcher backpack with one used by MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki. However, the backpack uses the Mega-Shiki's wing binders instead of the Hyaku Shiki's. In terms of armament, the Gilla-Shiki retains the Mega-Shiki's head vulcan guns and beam swords, but uses a new beam rifle.
As the modification is mostly for artistic build and study, it's unknown if the golden beam coating paint is functional in Gunpla Battle.
- Vulcan Gun
- Mounted in the head, the pair of vulcan guns have a high-rate of fire but little penetrating power. They can however damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors and are ideal for intercepting incoming missiles or enemy units at close range.
- Beam Sword
- The same beam swords as used by Mega-Shiki, they are stored on the wing binders at the back. Emitting yellow beam blades in the shape of a katana blade, the pair of beam swords are powerful enough to pierce/slice through AMX-104GG R-Gyagya's sturdy shields, and using particle transformation, can cut through other beam sabers.
- Beam Rifle
- A slightly longer version of the beam rifle used by Hyaku Shiki. Although this beam rifle is smaller than one used by Mega-Shiki, it has better focusing capability and higher accuracy.
Sometime after the conclusion of 13th Gunpla Battle Japanese U-19 Qualifiers Tournament, Sudou would once again work up his skills as a Gunpla Builder. Realizing that he already had a good study material with him, Sudou started to modify the MSN-001M Mega-Shiki into the form closer to the original MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki. Working on it allowed him to study some of Gunpla Shingyo School's building techniques used by Minato Sakai.
Notes & Trivia
- Since its backpack is based on MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki, it might be capable of equipping the Clay Bazooka.
