Technology & Combat Characteristics
The OZ-19MASX Gundam Griepe is the ultimate G-UNIT created by Dr. Berg. The Griepe was developed in secret while on Grand Chariot and smuggled out to Odin Bernett for the purposes of using it against OZ Prize and the OZ-15AGX Hydra Gundam. Like the L.O. Booster, the Griepe can transform into a high-speed flight mode, bolstered by a space propulsion engine developed by Mark Bernett, the late father of the G-UNITs' pilots. The suit incorporates the same modular design as the G-UNITs before it and also possesses the innovative feature known as the PX System which takes advantage of the increased adrenaline a pilot feels during combat and also increases the performance of the mobile suit. However, the system has a time limit which if passed has serious consequences for both the pilot and the suit. In MS Battle Mode, the Griepe's only weapons are a long beam lancer and a powerful beam weapon known as a hyper mega particle launcher, while its Mobile Armor Mode mounts a powerful buster mega particle cannon under its nose. The Griepe can also transform into Assault Mode, halfway between MS and MA, to make use of the cannon without fully transforming.
- Beam Lancer
- Buster Mega Particle Cannon
- Hyper Mega Particle Launcher
- The PX system takes advantage of the increased adrenaline a pilot feels during combat and also increases the performance of the mobile suit, but does have a time limit which, if exceeded, has serious consequences for both the pilot and the suit.
- Reflect Shield
- Two powerful reflective shields that can block beam attacks.
Working under the secret identity of Silver Clown, MO-V pilot Odel Bernett secretly smuggles the Griepe out of the Grand Chariot and delivers it to his younger brother Odin in an abandoned resource asteroid. Odin uses this powerful new mobile suit for the remainder of the conflict. Although Gundam Griepe is damaged in the final battle against OZ Prize leader Valder Farkill's Hydra Gundam, Odin utilizes the mobile suit's modular design to his advantage and uses parts from the other two G-UNITs to repair the Griepe, allowing him to destroy the Grand Chariot before it can attack MO-V.
Notes & Trivia
- The Griepe's Assault Mode is a homage to the MA-08 Big Zam.
