Synopsis

This book was intended as an overview and general guide to the Gundam Wing series events and characters and it includes detailed specifications on the mecha used in the television series. The 96 page book was published by Kodansha Press in 1996. Unique to this guide is a series of mobile suit design variations loosely based on the original Gundams introduced in the series.

Mecha

Aqua Shenlong (Tornado Gundam)
XXXG-01ST

Bom Bom Comics Variations
An underwater-use version of the Shenlong Gundam, equipped with powerful hydrojet thrusters in its backpack and shoulders.  Its main weapon is a hydrojet-powered dragon fang mounted on the right arm that can crush a battleship easily.  Additionally, its left arm can split into two normal dragon fangs that can function equally well on dry land or underwater.

Classification: Aquatic combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Hydrojet-powered dragon fang (x1), twin dragon fang (x1)

Blizzard Gundam
XXXG-01SB

Bom Bom Comics Variations
A cold districts variation of the Shenlong Gundam, Blizzard Gundam adds a small generator to the body to prevent any loss in mobility.  Its main weapons are beam javelins, whose wide blades allow them to be used to melt through snow and ice.  Additionally, the feet mount skis that can be used for higher-speed travel, when the javelins are used as ski poles.  Unfortunately, a system to replenish the energy in the dragon fire generators was never developed, so the flamethrowers were omitted.

Classification: Cold district use mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Beam javelin (x2), dragon fang (x1)

Catastrophe D (Gundam Catastrophe)
Bom Bom Comics Variations
A variation of Shenlong developed for space combat, this MS was primarily intended to be used to destroy colonies and asteroids.  For increased space mobility, it was given a set of four vernier-laden wings that allow it to fly at incredible speeds.  It also features propellant tanks attached to the backpack and nuclear missile launchers on the hips.  Since legs weren't needed for a space combat machine, they were replaced with fuel storage tanks and claws for melee combat.

Classification: Space combat demolition mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Leg claw (x2), nuclear missile launcher (x2)

Earthquake Naga Gundam
Bom Bom Comics Variations
A variation of the Gundam Sandrock modeled after the snake god Naga. This version replaces the lower half of the body with a serpentine tail, giving it increased mobility over desert sands. It can also transform into a winged snake form by expanding the flight wings on its back and mounting the magnum cross crusher over its head. Its other weapons include a heat axe with power output comparable to a beam scythe and six tail-like lightning shock antennae.

Classification: Desert combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Heat axe, lightning shock antenna (x6), magnum cross crusher

Gundam Crazy Beast (Gundam Death Beast)
XXXG-01DB

Bom Bom Comics Variations
A space combat variation of Deathscythe, Gundam Crazy Beast equips a ZERO System and features an all-around boost to its abilities.  For increased ranged combat, it employs a set of bat-shaped funnels stored in the shoulder armor.  Its melee weapons consist of a pair of heat swords that generate enough thermal energy to cut through most MS armor materials.  Furthermore, its stealth abilities have been so enhanced that it can send "ghost images" to enemy radar using the sensors in its chest and shoulders.  As a consequence of its vernier and thruster modifications, it features much greater speed and mobility.

Classification: Space combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Zero System, heat sword (x2), leg claw (x2), bat funnel (x2)

Gundam Dark Angel (Gundam Dark Fighter)
XXXG-01DF

Bom Bom Comics Variations
A variation of the Gundam Deathscythe.  Gundam Dark Angel focuses on upping its predecessor's mobility and stealth abilities to the utmost, making it perfect for pinpoint attacks and and covert operations.  Its suite of four hyper jammers gives it the ability to completely shut down enemy radar systems.  It can even disable enemy cameras when it gets within visual range.  It also features smoke emitters and holographic projectors that allow it to put up false images.  Its only weapon is a double-ended beam scythe that spins like a propeller blade when in use.  Making its strikes with speed and precision, it leaves behind the image of "the Soldier of Death".

Classification: High mobility ground combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Double beam scythe (x1), hyper jammer (x4)

Gundam Mad Tarantula (Gundam Death Spider)
XXXG-01DS

Bom Bom Comics Variations
A jungle combat variation of the Gundam Deathscythe, Mad Tarantula is composed of a torso like Deathscythe Hell's mounted on a spider-like body. It cuts through thick foliage using the right-hand beam scythe and the left-hand beam spear while its six legs allow it to keep its balance in any situation. Thanks to a multi-sensor camera mounted on its chest and the main torso's ability to rotate 360 degrees, Mad Tarantula has virtually no blind spot. When in combat, it can also use the two front legs as striking weapons.

Classification: Jungle combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Beam scythe (x1), beam spear (x1), leg blade (x6)

Gundam Nightmare Centaur (Gundam Death Centaur)
XXXG-01DC

Bom Bom Comics Variations
A variation of the Gundam Deathscythe, Nightmare Kentaros was mainly intended for improved ground combat. Its main weapon was a heat lance that could expand or contract as the situation warranted. It also mounted a shield on the left arm that could generate a beam pick. Its primary strength was the ability to leap into a crowd of enemy MS and take each of them down with a single blow. As a result, the arm and shoulder joints are reinforced for stronger attacks. It was originally planned to use four legs for increased speed, power output and better travel ability, but this concept had to be scrapped.

Classification: Close combat ground mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Double heat lance (x1), shield beam pick (x1)

Gundam Sky-High Arms
Bom Bom Comics Variations
A variation of the Gundam Heavyarms, Sky-High Arms was intended to take the concept of the original and turn it into an areial bombardment unit. As such, it mounts a large generator engine and powerful boosters that allow it to sustain flight. It can direct itself without much effort thanks to the thrusters mounted on its waist. The plan was for Sky-High Arms to attack from the sky using the beam Gatlings on each arm and the missile pods on the legs, then land and take the enemy position.

Classification: Aerial assault mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Beam Gatling gun (x2), 5-tube missile pod (x2), wing missiles (x12)

Gundam Super-Armed Tank
Bom Bom Comics Variations
A ground combat variation of Heavyarms, Gundam Super Armed Tank was intended to take the original's heavy weapons concept to the extreme. Each shoulder mounted a combination small missile and micromissile launcher, as well as three cannons equipped on the right pod. Each arm mounts a machinecannon and the right gets a beam claw while the left gets a crusher arm. To withstand all the extra weight these weapons put on the frame, the Gundam had to be given caterpillar treads in lieu of legs. Unfortunately, production took so long that this Gundam never had the chance to be rolled out.

Classification: Ground combat assault mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Small missile/micromissile pod (x2), cannon (x3), machine cannon (x4), beam claw, crusher arm (x1)

Shooting Star Shenlong (Storm Gundam)
XXXG-01SS

Bom Bom Comics Variations
An aerial combat variation of the Gundam Shenlong, this machine mounts a pair of enormous boosters on its back that allow it to fly. To keep its main strength of melee combat, Shooting Star Shenlong retains the original's dragon fang. However, it also uses a modified shield that mounts verniers of its own and can be used as a throwing weapon.

Classification: Aerial combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Dragon fang (x1), shield (x1)

Thunder Griffon Gundam
Bom Bom Comics Variations
A support Mobile Armor based off of Gundam Sandrock. Its basic form resembles a griffon, a mythological beast with the head of an eagle and the body of a lion. In order to respond to ground, air and ocean-based threats, it was given superior mobility and sports an energy recharge system for Sandrock.

Classification: Support mobile armor for XXXG-01SR Gundam Sandrock
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: None
Special equipment:
E
nergy recharge system

Twin-Headed Lizard Gundam (Dinosaur Gundam)
XXXG-01SD

Bom Bom Comics Variations
A jungle combat variation of the Shenlong Gundam, it was given a more camoflage-friendly green paint scheme. Although the flamethrowers were removed, both arms mount dragon fangs and the MS carries two beam glaives with higher output than the original. Additionally, the head sensors were extended to behind the head, granting it greater search abilities.

Classification: Jungle combat mobile suit
Material: Gundanium alloy
Armament: Beam glaive (x2), dragon fang (x2)
