Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the Bloody Valentine War, the Earth Alliance produces the GAT-X255 Forbidden Blue as an underwater combat variant of the GAT-X252 Forbidden Gundam. In adapting the design for amphibious combat, the Alliance uses the "Geschmeidig Panzer" energy deflection armor for both propulsion and pressurization. Unfortunately, the design comes with a critical flaw: if the "Geschmeidig Panzer" loses power, the suit is crushed by water pressure, earning it the nickname "Forbidden Coffin." This flaw is later corrected in the GAT-706S Deep Forbidden through the use of a reinforced titanium shell that protects the cockpit. This fix is also applied the original Forbidden Blue design in the form of the GAT-707E Forbidden Vortex. Aside from the titanium cockpit shell, the Forbidden Vortex is identical to the Forbidden Blue. During the Second Bloody Valentine War, several Forbidden Vortex units participate in the defense of the Alliance's headquarters Heavens Base in Iceland.
