MSX-08H Hurricane Gundam KAI
Hey there people! At last, I had the time to make the shots for this bad boy, tough it was very painful... Anyways, here it is! The Hurricane Gundam Kai!
About this creation
You can read more about this unit's background here!

Again, opposed to the original, I had to make several changes to the unit to make it feel more powerful and intimidating. I used the ZZ Gundam as my main inspiration to achieve that, at least as far as the overall design goes.

Armaments:
-2x Beam Saber
-2x Beam Cannon(mounted on shoulders)
-2x Knee Beam Saber
-2x Twin Heavy Beam Minigun
-!!!MISSILES!!! (62x)
-1x Mega Beam Cannon (Chest)
-1x "Longbow" Twin Barrel Beam Rifle














Head unit with mounted external vulcan. (Note: the idea came from the Gundam MKII that has a similiar weapon)


Chest and backpack, powering the Mega Beam Cannon


The arms, with the shoulder mounted Beam Cannons and enhanced armor


Skirt armor


The legs, enhanced with extra armor, Knee Beam Sabers and missile racks on the sides


If an enemy gets too close, and the suits hands are full of guns, what can you do? Use the knee!




Twin Heavy Beam Gatling with shielding


The Beam Cannons give an ample amount of firepower for the Hurricane


The "Longbow", a powerful long ranged Beam Rifle


The Booster pack with Beam Sabers


And now...ready the fireworks!!!








That's a lot of missiles...and he only fired half of it...








Hurricane, fireing the Mega Beam Cannon...you doN't want to be on the recieving end of that...






I've warned you!








And now that we're out of missiles and energy...


...it's time to change gears and lose some weight!




The Hurricane blasts off it's damaged extra armor and depleted weapons to reveal it's true form! (Note: this idea came from the Nadleeh/Virtue Gundam from Gundam 00, casting off the armor and changing the suits "role" and performance)




As some might remember the original version, I've mentioned that this unit was a "variant" of the Werewolf Gundam. This means that the base of the unit is the same in terms of performance and mobility. It is tough, faster then the Werewolf, being only second to the Icarus.


Every armor piece is optional, so it's the pilot's choice what to throw away to gain speed and power for the thrusters.


In this form, the Hurricane's role is "Interceptor". It means the unit will hunt down anti-ship threats or fleeing enemy suits.










Wielding Beam Saber

Oh, and let's not forget about our usual Zaku abusing! This time, with MISSILES!!!

Quoting Christian Bish Nice, It looks like It can Rip and entire platoon of MS units apart with ease and I do agree with M<0><0>DSWIM ! about it having the GN-005 Virtue theme with all the armor popping off. XD
Thanks! Well, pretty much all of the 5 Gundams from this team are capable of such feats.

Quoting Dr. Monster So cool. Great looking Gundam, and the effects of the active weapon systems are fantastic.
Thanks.

Quoting Antonio Nicassio Superb! Can I ask you how you change the LDD background?
Thank you! I didn't change the background. When I take shots in my LDD I get a transparent background. I simply used Gimp2 to edit things and the background(the green one) was made by a fellow MOCer friend a while back, exclusively for me and for these units.

Quoting TF Twitch WOW, this is amazing! I never would have thought to make a mech with ejectable armor. How you were able to hide the nimble form underneath is truly phenomenal. I had no clue that it had that ability when I first looked at it. To be able to switch from heavy support to nimble interceptor like that is ingenious. Great work!
Thanks! You don't even have the slightest idea! It took me a while just to figure out a way to beef up the legs with additional armor tha can be strapped off later. And at the same time, not giving away too much about the gimmick in the presentation.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Wow, this guy looks tough! Love the skirt and leg design and the fact that it can cast off its outter armor like 00 Virtue.
Thank you Moodie! I'm starting to think you got a leg/feet fetish, at least you always like my leg designs! :D

Quoting Marcus J. Awesome, and good colors as well. Reminds me of the buster gundam.
Thanks. Originally I intended this to have orange as the secondary color instead of red, but I didn't want it to look too much like the Buster.

That would be terrifying to walk up to in a smaller mech.
