Technical and Historical Notes

With the outbreak of war, the Earth Alliance's Atlantic Federation begins a secret project to develop mobile suits to counter ZAFT's mass-produced ZGMF-1017 GINN as well as operate free of interference from the N-Jammers. The GAT-X103 Buster Gundam is one of five initial prototype mobile suits that the Alliance develops secretly with the Orb Union. As an artillery mobile suit, the Buster Gundam's main armament consists of a 350mm gun launcher and a 94mm high-energy rifle. These two weapons can be used independently or both interchangeably combined to form two powerful long-range weapons. The Buster Gundam is also equipped with two 6-barrel missile pod launchers on its shoulders. Like the other prototype Gundams, the Buster Gundam is equipped with the new Phase Shift (PS) armor technology. When in Phase Shift mode, the Buster Gundam is nearly impervious to attacks from shell-firing artillery or melee weapons. However, use of Phase Shift for extended periods of time is a massive drain on the battery-powered reactor. Later on, the Alliance introduces the GAT/A-01E2 Buster Dagger, a simplified mass production version of the Buster Gundam.

On January 25, C.E. 71, the Buster Gundam is stolen by ZAFT pilot Dearka Elsman during ZAFT's assault on the neutral colony Heliopolis. Following the escape of the Earth Alliance battleship Archangel, Dearka and his Buster Gundam continue to harass the Archangel's crew during the later period of the war. In one battle near the Orb Union, the Buster Gundam is seriously damaged, forcing Dearka to surrender. He is captured by the Archangel and is held captive until the Archangel defects from the Earth Alliance to the Orb forces. When the Earth Alliance attacks Orb, Dearka reclaims the Buster Gundam and fights alongside the Archangel to defend Miriallia Haw. In the last battle of the war on September 26, C.E. 71, the Buster Gundam is heavily damaged while fighting Rau Le Creuset's ZGMF-X13A Providence Gundam.

Is there any way that you could make it a little less pin-headed? I know mobil suits can be a little pin-headed at times, but the buster seems to be the opposite compaired to the body. Since the buster rules so much, I'll raise my last 2 raitings. P.S. You should try to make a duel gundam to go with it.

Hi again! My views on this mech haven't changed or anything but this is just to redirect you people to the correct page. I had to make a new account because I couldn't log in (even the scarred crow makes mistakes) long storry short, I have a new page and you should not be expecting any thing on "The Scarred Crow anonymus's Page". Please, I ask you, NEVER go there again.

The torso is rather large, and despite it being a little short, I too am satisfied. Say, can it's weapons attach together?

If u want my honnest opinion, this MOC is okay... Iwould try to keep the scheme to maybe 2 colors, and try to make it less bloky, but still its okay. rating is a 3/5.

Much better than your other one but still pretty bad. Keep trying though you seem to on to something just NOT yet. petty shame!
