Technical and Historical Notes

 

Neo Turkey's GF13-052NT Minaret Gundam takes its name from the tall spires found in many Islamic mosques. It's designed as a close combat mobile fighter that lacks ranged weapons such as the standard head vulcans. Its main armament is a powerful energized minaret scimitar. Like Neo Mexico's GF13-049NM Tequila Gundam, the Minaret Gundam is targeted by its own government, but for different reasons. While Chico Rodriguez is hunted for avoiding the Gundam Fight, Saette Gyuzelle is wanted for attacking his own country and destroying parts of the historic city of Istanbul. However, Saette's actions aren't through his own free will, because at one point in the tournament, Saette is attacked by the JDG-00X Devil Gundam and infected with the its DG cells. Afterwards, Saette loses control of the Minaret Gundam and regains consciousness after it completes its destructive rampage. As Neo Turkey hunts him, Saette encounters his former lover, Rain Mikamura. After discovering his infection, Rain pleads with her partner Domon Kasshu to spare Saette. Their encounter ultimately leads to a Gundam Fight, but the DG cells overwhelm Saette and take control. After Domon defeats the Minaret Gundam with his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam, Saette is cured of the DG cell infection and pardoned by Neo Turkey's government.
