Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the 13th Gundam Fight begins, Neo Cuba dispatches fighter Frank Gastro and the GF13-083NCB Arachno Gundam to increase its low ranking from the previous Gundam Fight. The Arachno Gundam takes a visual cue from Cuba's famous 20th century dictator Fidel Castro. The Arachno Gundam's armament consists of six retractable tarantula claws (stored in the back), two head vulcans and one tomahawk. However, the Arachno Gundam never makes it far in the Gundam Fight. Early on, Gastro is challenged by Neo France's George de Sand and his GF13-009NF Gundam Rose. As soon as their fight begins, it's interrupted by Neo Japan's Domon Kasshu and his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam. Against the rules, Domon proposes that George and Gastro both attack him. Gastro accepts the offer, and his Arachno Gundam's head is destroyed by Domon's beam saber. As dictated by the Gundam Fight regulations, Gastro is disqualified and not allowed to continue in the tournament. After the 13th Gundam Fight ends, Gastro returns as part of the World Gundam Federation to defend Earth from the JDG-00X Devil Gundam.
