The NRX-0015 Gundam Ashtaron is a transformable Mobile Suit which appears in the series After War Gundam X.

Technological and Combat Characteristics

Developed by Government Reconstruction Committee, the NRX-0015 Gundam Ashtaron is capable of transforming into a high speed Mobile Armor mode via the Trans System and can operate in any environment. Despite its bulky form, the Ashtaron is fast and agile. In its MA mode, the Ashtaron was capable of acting as a flight platform for the NRX-0013 Gundam Virsago, which stand atop the suit. Also, when in MA mode, the Astharon could be equipped with an ejectable booster for extended flight range.

The main armament of the Gundam Ashtaron were its two backpack-mounted atomic scissors, which were powerful enough to grapple a mobile suit and crush it, but also gentle enough to grip a human without harming it. Each scissor also mounted a beam cannon. For close combat, the Ashtaron was equipped with a single beam saber, a pair of machine cannons, and four nose beam cannons usable only in MA mode. Optionally, the suit could also carry a beam spear.

Despite being based on the GB-9700 Gundam Belphagor, the Ashtaron is not equipped with a Flash system. It could be an indication that the Ashtaron was never intended for any Newtype based technologies, nor did it require the improved levels of control.

Armaments

  • Atomic Scissor
Mounted in the sides of the backpack, the pair of atomic scissors can be deployed in MS or MA mode, and served as the suit's primary weapon. With its extendable and flexible joints, the atomic scissors can grab an enemy MS and slice it in half with its powerful pincers. However, they were not strong enough to shear advanced MS with tough armor such as GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X. The atomic scissors can also be used to penetrate enemy unit with their sharp tips. Each atomic scissor is equipped with a beam cannon for ranged attack.
  • Scissor Beam Cannon
A beam cannon is mounted in each Atomic Scissor, in the middle of the base of the pincers. This is the suit's main ranged weapon.
  • Beam Saber
A sword-like beam weapon that is used for close combat, stored on the rear waist armor when not in use.
  • Nose Beam Cannon
Four beam cannons are mounted at the front of the Gundam Ashtaron's MA mode, two on either sides of the nose. Primarily used in MA mode, these rapid-fire beam cannons can also be used in MS mode, where they are downward facing, to attack rear enemies that are below the Gundam Ashtaron.
  • Machine Cannon
A pair of machine cannons are mounted on the shoulder. They are useful for damaging enemy's weapons and shooting down incoming projectiles such as missiles.
  • Beam Spear
An optional handheld weapon for Gundam Ashtaron, it functions as a firearm as well as a throwing weapon. With its two metallic blades fold back, the beam spear adopts a crossbow form, exposing a muzzle for firing beam shots like a beam rifle. When the two metallic blades are joined, they can be superheated and the weapon can be thrown like a spear to damage enemy unit.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Booster
An optional booster can be attached to the back of the Gundam Ashtaron in MA mode to boost its flight range. It can be ejected when it rans out of fuel.

History

Created by the New United Nations Earth at an unknown point of time, the Gundam Ashtaron was piloted by Olba Frost. Olba often worked together with his older brother Shagia Frost, who piloted the Gundam Virsago.

Their first known appearance was in AW 0015, when Olba was able to infiltrate the Vulture ship Freeden with the Ashtaron after battling with a small number of RMS-009 Septem units, getting "rescued" by the Freeden's mobile suits. After staying at the ship for several days, he escaped in the Ashtaron, kidnapping Newtype girl Tiffa Adill in the process. After delivering her to the Alternative Company, Olba headed off to help his brother in the fight against a group of Vultures, especially Garrod Ran in his GX-9900 Gundam X. The two of them were however forced to retreat when Gundam pilots Roybea Loy and Witz Sou joined the battle in their respective Gundam.

In the following months, Olba and his Gundam Ashtaron faced off against the Gundams of the Freeden many more times. When a new war was about to start between the New UNE and the Space Revolutionary Army the Gundam Ashtaron was upgraded into the NRX-0015-HC Gundam Ashtaron Hermit Crab.
