The ZGMF-601R GuAIZ R ("R" stands for "Reinforce") is a Mobile Suit which appears in the series Gundam SEED Destiny.

Technology and Combat Characteristics

The successor of the old ZGMF-600 GuAIZ, the GuAIZ R's armament consists of a pair of two hip-mounted folding MMI-M20S "Pollux IX" railguns, which are based on the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam's "Xiphas" rail cannons; and also replace the original extensional arrestors. Also an advanced version of the composite shield is mounted on the suit's left arm, which replaces the original dual beam claw with a single beam saber. Besides these changes, the GuAIZ R, like its successor, mounts two head-mounted CIWS and carries a single beam rifle.

Beside the change in armament, the additional thrusters on the original unit were removed, allowing less experienced pilots to use them. Though more heavily armed than the original GuAIZ, the removal of the additional thrusters on its shoulders made it lightweight, improving its mobility.

History

After the end of the Bloody Valentine War, a new variant of the original GuAIZ was designed, with the result being the GuAIZ R. Although its introduction date is unknown, in the second half of CE 73 they are slowly replaced by the more powerful and versatile ZGMF-1000 ZAKU series (especially ZAKUs equipped with the high-performance Blaze or Slash packs). Since this replacement took some time, many GuAIZ R units were used in the Second Bloody Valentine War. During the prelude of the war, several GuAIZ R models were used against renegade ZGMF-1017M2 GINN High Maneuver Type IIs in the Battle of Junius Seven, in which against they fared poorly. It is however unclear whether this was a sign of inferiority on the part of the GuAIZ R, or merely on the part of the ZAFT pilots.
