Technical and Historical Notes

 

The MSA-0011 S Gundam is designed from the very beginning to support optional equipment such as boosters, heavy weapons, and extra armor. The Ex-S Gundam is a heavy equipment type created according to this plan. Where previous full armor systems were designed mainly for defense, the extra equipment of the Ex-S Gundam simultaneously protects the pilot, increases the mobile suit's firepower, and enhances its mobility. These new parts also enable the mobile suit to transform into a G-Cruiser form with extended cruising range. This form of the S Gundam is designated as the [Ext] version, which is short for "Extraordinary." The Ex-S Gundam is equipped with eight new or replacement parts. The extra armor on its chest covers the main cockpit, reinforces the mobile suit's transformation mechanisms, and includes an I-field generator that can be activated for brief intervals to protect the pilot from enemy beam weapons. The extra front armor on its waist provides a new connection point for the beam smartgun so that it can be used without removing the thigh beam cannons. Its knee units contain wire-guided devices known as reflector incoms, which use an I-field to deflect the shots fired from the Ex-S Gundam's own beam weapons and strike enemy machines from unexpected angles. The extra parts on its legs contain propellant tanks and thrust enhancement systems that increase the output of the mobile suit's leg engines. Finally, the backpack of the original S Gundam is replaced by two booster units whose nuclear thermal rocket engines have more than ten times as much thrust, more than compensating for the added weight of its other equipment. These booster units also include large propellant tanks and movable frame mounts to which beam cannons can be attached.

The G-Cruiser is the mobile armor form of the Ex-S Gundam. This form is equipped with large propellant tanks to further extend its cruising range and operating time. These tanks are connected to the side jackets of the mobile suit's shoulder armor, and although they can be retained after transformation, they are often discarded once empty in order to reduce the mobile suit's dead weight. With these propellant tanks the G-Cruiser is theoretically capable of escaping Earth's atmosphere and reaching satellite orbit, and it can also descend to the lunar surface and then launch back into space under its own power. The Ex-S Gundam makes its combat debut during the middle stage of the Pezun Rebellion. On March 13, UC 0088, Ryo Roots uses this form during the initial attempt to capture Ayers City. Although this operation ends in failure, the Federation Forces make a second attempt with the launch of Operation Eagle Fall on March 17, and Ryo continues to use the Ex-S Gundam throughout the ensuing battle on the lunar surface. The fighting ends on March 28 when Roots defeats New Desides leader Brave Cod and his ORX-013 Gundam Mark V in close combat. This battle appears to be the final appearance of the Ex-S Gundam on the battlefield.
