Technical and Historical Notes

 

ZAFT's TMF/TR-2 BuCUE Tactical Reconnaissance Type is a variant of the standard TMF/A-802 BuCUE ground combat mobile suit. Designed for reconnaissance missions, the BuCUE Recon Type replaces the railgun and missile launcher of the standard BuCUE with a sensor radome. The BuCUE Recon Type's head features a special optical sensor array, and the main body is also equipped with a multiband sensor cluster. The unit also features a stealth system, but unlike Mirage Colloid-equipped mobile suits, the BuCUE's stealth system is only effective against radar. Its main armament is a pair of laser guns, but it is also armed with leg spikes and can optionally be equipped with missiles and machine guns on the wing hardpoints. After ZAFT acquires beam weaponry technology, the BuCUE Recon Type is refitted to include a double-sided beam saber on the mouth. Junk Guild member Lowe Guele purchases the head of a destroyed BuCUE Recon Type and refits it to serve as a beam saber glove for his MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame.
