- List of Cosmic Era mobile units
This is a list of fictional mobile units from the
Cosmic Era(CE) timeline of the " Gundam" anime metaseries. Mobile units are mobile suits and mobile armors. Mobile suits and mobile armors are fictional mecha.
The codes after the name specify in which series or manga that mobile suit actually appeared in:
* [GS] - "
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED"
* [GSA] - "
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray"
* [GSD] - "
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny"
* [GSDA] - "
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Astray"
* [GS73] - "
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73 Stargazer"
* [GSΔA] - "
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73 Δ Astray"
* [GSFA] - "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Frame Astrays"
* [GSV] - "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED" Mobile Suit Variations
* [GSDV] - "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny" Mobile Suit Variations
"Gundam" is never used in the series to officially identify "any" mobile suit; it is an acronym for variations of the various Mobile Operating Systems used to run mobile suits and mobile armors.
Kira Yamatoand Cagalli Yula Athhause it as a nickname to refer to these mobile suits, and some of Kira's friends follow his example. The word "Gundam" is used in marketing copy and model kit/toy packaging to designate the "hero" mobile suits, as opposed to the normal "grunt" mobile suits.
The entries are listed under the faction that produced it.
Clyne Faction/Three Ships Alliance
*ZGMF-XX09T DOM Trooper [GSD] - ZAFT prototype series, never saw mass production. At least three ZGMF-XX09T DOM Trooper Original Spec Type's were built by ZAFT (possibly nine or more given the unit numbering on the shoulder), and three units are stolen by Clyne faction and taken to the asteroid factory where they were completed and modified with enhanced equipment and armament. Assigned to the Eternal and piloted by Hilda Harken (team leader, pilot of unit 003), Herbert Von Reinhardt (pilot of unit 004), and Mars Simeon (pilot of unit 009). Unit 003 is damaged at the end of the
Second Bloody Valentine War.
*ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice [GSD]
*ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom [GSD]
Earth Alliance mobile suits have the designation "GAT" ("G"ressorial "A"rmament "T"actical). Experimental units in the series include the modifier of "X" before the unit designation number (example: GAT-X105 Strike). The word "Gressorial" means "adapted for walking". Mobile armors have the designation "TS-MA" ("T"heater "S"uppression - "M"obile "A"rmor). The meaning of the designation "RGX" is not yet known, but it is used exclusively by Blue Cosmos/Logos-affiliated units to refer to mobile suits that were stolen from ZAFT. These units are:
* ZGMF-X12A Testament' (RGX-00)
* ZGMF-X24S Chaos (RGX-01)
* ZGMF-X31S Abyss (RGX-02)
* ZGMF-X88S Gaia (RGX-03)
* ZGMF-YX21R Proto-Saviour (RGX-04)
Earth Alliance's standard mobile suit operating system is designated "G"eneral "U"nilateral "N"euro-Link "D"ispersive "A"utonomic "M"aneuver" (or "GUNDAM"). The GFAS-X1 Destroy uses an OS designated "G"igantic "U"nilateral "N"umerous "D"ominating "Am"munition" Fortress.
The GAT-X131 Calamity, GAT-X252 Forbidden, and GAT-X370 Raider, along with their variants are equipped with a type of Phase Shift Armor called Trans-Phase Armor (TP). TP armor varies from PS armor in that it activates only at the point and time of impact, because of this it uses less energy than PS armor, that energy can be used for heavy energy weapons.
The Alliance's "Gundam" type mobile suits' model numbers have meaning to their designed purpose and are as follows:
* X100s - General Purpose. As the name suggests, these are intended for any purpose, from close combat to long range. The multi role X105 Strike is the only exception. Examples: GAT-X102 Duel, GAT-X105 Strike.
* X200s - Specific Purpose, Frame, or Special Equipment. These are intended for a specific purpose, and usually equipped with some form of special technology. Examples: GAT-X207 Blitz, GAT-X252 Forbidden.
* X300s - Transformable. These are designed to transformed from its MS mode to a Mobile Armor (MA) mode of any kind. Examples: GAT-X303 Aegis, GAT-X370 Raider.
*GAT-X102 Duel [GS] - General-purpose mobile suit, the first of the GAT-X series. Stolen by ZAFT. Gets upgraded with body armor, called the "Assault Shroud", after being cut down in its third battle with the Strike. The Assault Shroud was destroyed by the Forbidden, but the unharmed Duel went on to destroy the Forbidden. Soon after Duel also destroyed the Raider with Buster's Gun Launcher. Piloted by
** GAT-X1022 Blu Duel [GS73] - A new design by Aktaeon Industries, based on the design of the GAT-X102 Duel Assault Shroud. The unit is armed with the standard pair of head-mounted CIWS as well as a shield, a retractable beam rifle, a pair of beam sabres, three Anti-Armor Penetrators and a railgun. Unlike the original Duel, who's additional 'Assault Shroud' armor was not equipped with Phase Shift Armor, all of the Blu Duel's armor is equipped with Phase Shift. Assigned to the same squad as the GAT-X103AP Verde Buster and GAT-X105E Strike Noir. Destroyed in batle with several TMF/A-802W2 Kerberos BuCUE Hound. Piloted by Mudie Holcroft.
*GAT-X103 Buster [GS] - Long-range artillery MS, equipped with Gun Launcher and High-Energy Beam Rifle that can be combined together to form either Hyper Impulse Long-Range Beam Sniper Rifle or Anti-Armor Shotgun. Stolen by ZAFT, later recovered by the "Archangel" crew. Providence Gundam leaves Buster nearly destroyed. Piloted by
** GAT-X103AP Verde Buster [GS73] - A new design by Aktaeon Industries, based on the design of the GAT-X103 Buster. The unit has all the same armament as the original Buster (two shoulder-mounted 6-tube 220mm missile launchers, a 350mm gun-launcher, and a 94mm high-energy beam cannon), only the previously hip-mounted gun-launcher and high-energy beam cannon have been moved to the shoulders. The hips now each mount an M9009B composite bayonet-equipped beam rifle, which can combine side-by-side to form a single beam cannon. Assigned to the same squad as the GAT-X102 Blu Duel and GAT-X105E Strike Noir. It is destroyed after running out of power while fighting a group of DSSD Custom Civilian Astrays. Piloted by Shams Coza.

*GAT-X131 Calamity [GS] - Artillery prototype MS, carries a heavy weapon loadout, with 2 beam cannons on the shoulders, 2 on the shield, and a high energy beam cannon in the chest, as well as a powerful plasma sabot bazooka. Calamity is destroyed by Freedom equipped with its METEOR. Its "living CPU" pilot is
**GAT-X133 Sword Calamity [GSA] - Close combat version of Calamity, mounts two anti-ship swords instead of the backpack cannons, its shoulders have additional thrusters and mount two beam boomberangs, and it has two rocket anchors. It retains its chest mounted beam cannon, but it is 30% weaker than that of Calamity. Three units were built, piloted by famed aces Edward "Ed the Ripper" Harrelson and Rena "Sakura Burst" Imelia, and "Combat Coordinator"
*GAT-X207 Blitz [GS] - Uses the Mirage Colloid for stealth capabilities. Armed with a "Trikeros" shield, which mounts a beam rifle, beam saber, and three "lancer dart" kinetic energy penetrators. Stolen by ZAFT, later destroyed by the GAT-X105 Strike. Piloted by
** GAT-X207SR Nero Blitz [GSΔA] - A new design by Aktaeon Industries, based on the design of the GAT-X207 Blitz. The "SR" stands for "Stealth Reinforcement". Equipped with a large grappling arm on back which can smash even Phase Shift armor.
*GAT-X252 Forbidden [GS] - Close-combat prototype MS, carries a powerful scythe and two movable shields which utilize "Geshmedig Panzer" beam deflection system uses Mirage Colloid to deflect incoming beams. It is also heavily armed, with two

**GAT-X255 Forbidden Blue [GSA/GSV/GSD] - Underwater combat prototype derived from the Forbidden. Armed with a phonon maser cannon and supercativating torpedoes. At least three units were built, one piloted by "White Whale" Jane Houston. These units rely on Geshmedig Panzer beam deflection system to keep the Gundam intact; however it the power were cut off the unit would implode under the immense pressure. This problem is corrected in the official mass production units GAT-706S Deep Forbidden and GAT-707E Forbidden Vortex.
*GAT-X303 Aegis [GS] - A transformable MS-MA hybrid, can transform into mobile armor mode. It is equipped with a devastating "Scylla" beam cannon, along with a hand-carried beam rifle and four beam sabers built into its limbs. Stolen by ZAFT and later self-destructed to destroy the Strike. Piloted by
** GAT-X303AA Rosso Aegis [GSΔA] - A new design by Aktaeon Industries, based on the design of the GAT-X303 Aegis. The "AA" stands for "Advanced Acceleration". Unlike the Aegis, it can fire the "Scylla" cannon in mobile suit mode, and is capable of atmospheric flight in both MS and MA mode.
*GAT-X370 Raider [GS] - A transformable MS-MA hybrid, can transform into a high-speed fighter. It carries considerable weaponry, and can act as a subflight unit for the heavy, groundbound Calamity. Destroyed by Duel Gundam (later retconed to being destroyed by the Buster Gundam). Piloted by
*Mistral (MAW-01) [GS] - Several units are stored in the "Archangel"'s hangar.
GAT-01 Strike Dagger[GS]
**GAT-01A1 105 Dagger [GSV/GSA/GSD] - The "true" mass-production version of the Strike, capable of mounting the Striker Packs.
*GAT/A-01E2 Buster Dagger [GSV/GSA] - the mass-produced version of the X103 Buster, though very rare. The only known Buster Dagger was piloted by "Sakura Burst", aka
*GAT-01D Long Dagger and GAT-01D1 Duel Dagger [GSV/GSA] - both designs can be considered the Dagger form of the X102 Duel. Long Dagger is designed for Coordinators, such as
Jean Carryor "Combat Coordinators" Eleven Socius and Seven Socius. Duel Dagger is a Natural-use variant, and was piloted, among others by famed EA aces Edward Harrelsonand Rena Imelia.
*GAT-02L2 Dagger L [GSD] - produced following the First Bloody Valentine War, the successor to the GAT-01A1 105 Dagger.
*GAT-04 Windam [GSD] - mass-produced, enters service in late CE 73 and early CE 74 to replace the Dagger-L
*GAT-333 Raider Full Spec [GSV/GSA] - the original project of the Raider, mass-produced. One Raider Full Spec is known to have been piloted by EA ace
Edward Harrelson, aka Ed the Ripper.
*GAT-706S Deep Forbidden [GSV/GSA] - the mass-production version of the Forbidden Blue; some weapons have been removed, and has a strengthened pressure hull instead of relying on Trans-Phase armour and "Geshmedig Panzer" to resist water pressure
*GAT-707E Forbidden Vortex [GSD] - limited-production variant of the Forbidden Blue prototype, with the pressure-shielding of the Deep Forbidden. Otherwise, it is identical.
*GAT-SO2R N Dagger N [GSDV/GSDA] - a special-operations mobile suit derived from the GAT-X207 Blitz and built on the frame of the GAT-01A1 105 Dagger; equipped with the N-Jammer Canceler, nuclear engine, and a Mirage Colloid stealth system
*GAT-X399/Q Wild Dagger [GSDV] - a limited production version ground mobile suit that is derived from the captured ZGMF-X88S Gaia and the GAT-02L2 Dagger L; can transform into a similar quadruped mode like the Gaia; there were 72 Wild Daggers produced for counter-insurgency units
*GFAS-X1 Destroy [GSD] - (GFAS is short for "G"ressorial "F"ortress "A"rmament "S"trategic). A giant, heavily armed transformable mobile armor, armed with numerous beam cannons and missile launchers, and protected by postitron reflector shields. Destroy's power is such that it is considered a strategic, rather than tactical, weapon. A total of at least nine Destroy units are built. One is piloted by Extended pilot
Stella Loussier, and is destroyed by Kira Yamato's ZGMF-X10A Freedom in battle over Berlin. Another is piloted by Sting Oakley, and is destroyed by Shinn Asuka's ZGMF-X42S Destiny in the battle over Heaven's Base. The other Destroy units were also destroyed during the battles at Heaven's Base and the Daedalus moon base. Both its design and initial appearance in the anime are highly reminiscent of the Universal Century MRX-009 Psyco Gundam. Its mobile armor form, however is an obvious homage to the MA-08 Big Zam.
*TS-MB1B Euclid [GSD] - Mass-produced flight-capable mobile armor. Armed with two beam cannons and two Gatling guns. Fielded in defense of Heaven's Base. Capable of both Earth and Space combat.
*TS-MA4F Exus [GSD] -
Neo Roanoke's mobile armor, similar in concept and appearance to the TS-MA2mod.00 Moebius Zero. Armed with 2 railguns, a missile launcher, and 4 wire-guided gunbarrels, which each mount two beam guns and two beam sabers.
*YMAG-X7F Gells-Ghe [GSD] - Base-defense mobile armor with many similarities to the YMAF-X6BD Zamza-Zah mobile armor, but ground-based. It needs three pilots to operate it and also has a positron reflector. The lower body is spider-like, and the upper body is a heavily modified Dagger torso. One unit was defeated by ZGMF-X23S Saviour.
*TS-MA2 Moebius [GS] - Standard armament is a linear gun and four missiles, but these can be replaced by a single nuclear missile. It was used to destroy Junius 7 in the infamous "Bloody Valentine Incident". Obsolete early in the First Bloody Valentine War, but used until June CE 71, when it was replaced by the Strike Dagger.
*TS-MA2mod.00 Moebius Zero [GS] - The prototype of the Moebius mobile armors used by the Earth Alliance, featuring a linear gun and four gunbarrels which could be detached from the body of the unit and guided by cables. Although the additional gunbarrels allowed the pilot of the Moebius Zero to overwhelm opponents with a simultaneous multi-directional attack, they proved to be too difficult for most pilots to handle, and the design was pared down for the production model. Only a limited number of units using the prototype design saw action, piloted by an elite squadron of Earth Alliance lieutenants. Of these, the only one to survive combat was
Mu La Flaga, who brought the last Moebius Zero unit with him to what would become the Three Ships Alliance when he joined the crew of the "Archangel". It was retired after the "Archangel" landed on Earth, as Mu switched to a FX-550 Skygrasper, due to Moebius Zero's wire-guided gunbarrels being unable to operate in Earth's atmosphere. It would also spawn a Striker pack variant known as the AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel Striker a unit which also functioned as a Striker pack for the GAT-01A1 Dagger and GAT-X105 Strike.
*TSX-MA717/ZD Pergrande [GSA] - Prototype mobile armor, nuclear-powered and N-Jammer equipped. Features a multi-vector attack system called DRAGOON.
*YMAF-X6BD Zamza-Zah [GSD] - Flight-capable mobile armor, has a giant body of vaguely crab-like shape. Three pilots are needed to operate it (one for the main section, one for the claws, and one gunner). It is equipped with combat claws and cannons in the limbs, and a positron reflector in the head capable of deflecting positron beams. Destroyed by ZGMF-X56S Impulse.
While also in the Earth Alliance, the Eurasian Federation has their own mobile suits, the "C"omposition "A"rmament "T"actical mobile suits. They are based on Acteton Industry's Gel-Finito.
*CAT1-X Hyperion [GSA]
*CAT1-XG Hyperion G [GSFA] - Mass production land-use version of the Hyperion Gundam. There are 12 units in total. Unit 2 is customized for
Republic of East Asia
*GAT-FJ108 Raigo [GSFA]
**GAT-FJ108 Speculum Raigo [GSFA]
**GAT-FJ108 Caliburn Raigo [GSFA]
**GAT-FJ108 Sumbullet Raigo [GSFA]
ZAFT mobile suits have the following designations and meanings:Fact|date=December 2007
*ZGM ("Z"ero-"G"ravity "M"aneuver)
*ZGMF ("Z"ero-"G"ravity "M"aneuver "F"ighter)
*ZGMF-X ("Z"ero-"G"ravity "M"aneuver "F"ighter-E"x"perimental)

When ZAFT builds three new mobile suits based on the stolen MS units GAT-X102 Duel, GAT-X103 Buster, GAT-X207 Blitz and 'GAT-X303 Aegis, they develop the ZGMF-X_A series and re-designate the operating system for those suits as "G"eneration "U"nsubdued "N"uclear "D"rive "A"ssault "M"odule" Complex (or "GUNDAM" Complex).
Bloody Valentine War, the OS is updated to support the "Deuterion Beam Energy Supply System" that the newer ZAFT suits use, and the system the ZGMF-X_S series uses is re-designated as "G"eneration "U"nrestricted "N"etwork "D"rive "A"ssault "M"odule". Later in the war a third version of the OS, "G"unnery "U"nited "N"uclear-"D"eutrion "A"dvanced "M"aneuver" System, is used in the new ZGMF-X42S Destiny and ZGMF-X666S Legend.
ZAFT experimental units generally have their numerical designation prefaced with "X" followed by a two or three digit type code and a letter designating their stage of development: "A" for First Stage, "S" for Second Stage and "T" for Third stage suits.For Second Stage units, the two-digit series designators include a type number (first digit) and a series number (second digit), so the ZGMF-X56S Impulse is Type 5, Series 6. The only exceptions are the ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice and ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom due to the fact that they aren't constructed by ZAFT and are "resurrections" of the earlier prototypes. The Type numbers' significance for X_S-series Second Stage units is as follows:
*1: None; only first generations were given this number, but their model numbers are in sequence
*2: Transforming Air/space-use units
*3: Underwater-use units
*4: General all-purpose-use units
*5: Silhouette system units
*6: DRAGOON system units
*8: Ground-use units

Heine Westenfluss, is destroyed in its first battle on Earth by ZGMF-X88S Gaia.
*YFX-600R GuAIZ Experimental Firearms Type [GSV/GS] - Some ZGMF-600 GuAIZ units were refitted to test several weapons that were used by ZGMF-X10A Freedom (railguns and beam rifle), and ZGMF-X09A Justice (subflight lifter and beam rifle). At least one unit was used in combat by ZAFT at Second Battle of Jachin Due, but current fate is unknown.
*ZGMF-X56S Impulse [GSD] - Composed by the Core Splendor, the Chest Flyer and the Leg Flyer, can dock mid-air into a mobile suit form. It relies on battery power that can be remotely replenished by its mother ship. Its armament includes 2 chest-mounted
CIWS, 1 high-energy beam rifle, 1 mobile shield, and 2 "Folding Razor" knives. The Impulse is piloted by Shinn Asuka, and later by Lunamaria Hawkewhen Shinn obtained ZGMF-X42S Destiny. Three more units would later be fielded by ZAFT and equipped with the Destiny Silhouette. Unlike the unit aboard the "Minerva", these Impulse units did not feature Variable Phase Shift Armor. Like the earlier Strike, the Impulse can be equipped with additional packs called "Silhouettes."

Uzumi Nara Athhafor her before his death. It is the only Mobile Suit produced with the ORB designation. Similar to the MSN-00100 Hyaku Shikias it also sports a unique, bright gold color scheme which generally relates to the definition of Akatsuki in English, meaning "dawn." Also similar to the Hyaku Shiki is its profound ability to reflect or neutralize beam weapons on account of the "Yata-no-Kagami" which is coated on its armour. Given to Mu La Flagajust before the Battle of the Messiah. Mu uses it in an attempt to block a positron cannon blast from the "Minerva", similar to what he did in the previous war.
