The ZGMF-515AS CGUE Assault is a Mobile Suit in the Cosmic Era timeline. It is featured in the manga series Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Frame Astrays and piloted by Xist Elwes.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Like the ZGMF-1017AS GINN Assault Type, the CGUE Assault mounts additional armor on its arms, legs, torso and backpack to increase overall performance. This set of 'Assault Shroud' armor is designed to allow ZGMF-515 CGUE's performance to be on par with specially developed ace MS. However, the design soon falls out of favor as the MS development trend tilts towards the latter and only a limited set of armor were produced. CGUE's 'Assault Shroud' also give the MS a certain degree of atmospheric flight capabilities and unlike the GINN's, it does not mount much in the way of additional weapons. One such machine is captured by EA and assigned to Xist Elwes. Besides some modifications to the internal components, EA also developed a set of shoulder shield for Xist's CGUE Assault to increase its combat capabilities.

Armaments

  • MA-M4A Heavy Sword
An improved version of GINN's heavy sword and the standard close range armament of the GGUE.
  • M7070 28mm Vulcan System Shield
A shield with a built-in vulcan cannon to improve the CGUE's close combat capability and to allow it to switch between offense and defense quickly. CGUE Assault can be equipped with two of them, one on each forearm for additional firepower.
  • MMI-M7S 76mm Heavy Assault Machine Gun
An improved version of GINN's machine Gun. It fires a type of armor piercing round designated "APSV," this round is extraordinarily powerful, but is incapable of dealing significant damage to enemies protected by Phase Shift armor. This machine gun is also used by AMF-101 DINN and its variants.
  • Shoulder Shield
An optional set of shield developed specifically for Xist's Assault CGUE. It features dual Gatling gun for heavy firepower and can increase the MS's aerial mobility as well as AMBAC capabilities.

History

A custom colored CGUE is used by Xist Elwes. Xist's CGUE is a captured unit and modified for his custom use. Xist dislikes the Assault Shroud as he turns into a robotic-like killing machine when using it. As a result, the equipment is sealed away and only used by Xist when he is desperate. In the manga, Frame Astrays, the CGUE Assault was first seen between a battle with Xist and Suu piloting TMF/A-802W2 Kerberos BuCUE Hound.
