The GM Space Type "Deep Striker" is a space combat mobile suit with an upgraded armor package.
About this creation
The GM Space Type MkIII was a successful mobile suit, but to counter the threat of the highly mobile suits, ships and mobile suits alike begin equipping bigger guns and faster engines.
In order to counter these upgrades, ZODIAC Corp developed a space-only upgrade package known as the Crusader Armor. When combined with the Space Type, it was known as the Deep Striker package.
Equipped with nearly twice the armor of the base model, the Crusader Armor also adds an enhanced communication and scan suite, massively upgraded thrusters with extended operation fuel pods, and the coup de etat, the UltraLance beam bazooka.
Due to the extreme mass addition, the Deep Striker can only operate in Zero-G, whether open space or Near-Earth.
