Synopsis

A side story to the events in the Gundam Wing Television Series (also known as "Gundam Wing: G-Unit") that begins at about the same time that Lady Une is acting as a diplomat to the space colonies and concludes with the Eve War, this three-volume comic series introduces new characters and mecha not shared with the Gundam Wing universe. The story takes place on a mining asteroid, resource satellite MO-V, where a revolutionary Gundam project is underway. Unlike previous Mobile Suits, the G-Unit is an experimental Gundam designed to operate in multiple environments, like space and water. Though the residents initially welcome OZ's presence, once the inhabitants recognize OZ's true itinerary, brothers Odin and Odel Bernett join forces with Roche Natanno of the Stardust Knights to protect the asteroid colony MO-V from OZ, unaware that both sides are being manipulated by the creator of the G-Units for his own purposes. The comic was released in Japan in 1997-1998, along with a new line of model kits of the mobile suits, and released in English in 2002-2003.

Characters

Aretha Walker
Officer aboard Grand Shario, Aretha delivered the Griepe to Odin, defecting to MO-V shortly thereafter. (Also Arelha in some sources.)
Broom Brooks
Tall and imposing member of the Stardust Knights, totally loyal to Roche's knightly approach. His refusal to accept Farkill's tactics results in his death.
Captain Cage
A Barge officer who ordered Sernan on a top secret reconnaissance mission. After the war, he joined the Preventers.

Dick Hidasaki
Chief mechanic and engineer on MO-V and expert at repairing the Gundams, Dick can usually be found in the hangar, wearing his baseball cap and working on the G-Units with Lucille Aisley.
Doctor Berg
The inventor of the G-Units, Dr. Berg is a brilliant scientist. He seems more interested in protecting his work than the people of MO-V. Originally one of Duke Dermail's top agents, Dr. Berg was an accomplished mobile suit designer who was placed at the asteroid colony MO-V. However, the colony's chairman Roga Herman chose to develop space travel instead of mobile suits. Enraged, Berg sabotaged the shuttle, killing Mark Barnett and his wife and convincing Herman to allow him to build his mobile suits. The fruits of his labors were the G-Units, mobile suits with the ability to rapidly change their equipment and the powerful but dangerous PX System.

Dornille A White Fang officer, Dornille was sent to MO-V in an attempt to capture the G-Units for White Fang.
Kratz Silvy
One of the Stardust Knights and a leader of OZ Prize, Kratz betrayed Roche before an extended MS battle with Odel using the PX System destroyed both him and his Gundam.
Lon Sernan
An OZ Special Lieutenant and mechanic who was present at Lake Victoria base when it was attacked by the Shenlong Gundam and was later assigned to Barge, Sernan was under Lady Une's orders when he received word that the colony MO-V was under Prize jurisdiction. Lieutenant Nichol, hiding this from Une, ordered Sernan to investigate MO-V and find out what was so important about it. As he neared the colony, he was attacked by Broom Brooks, but was fortunately saved by the Bernett brothers. After explaining his situation, Sernan joined MO-V's staff as a mobile suit mechanic. Sernan joined Preventers after the conflict. (Name translated as Lowe in some sources.)

Lucille Aisley

Lucille is a mechanic and the lead programmer at MO-V; her computer skills are invaluable in the development of the new G-Units. She's also Odin's girlfriend, although it's hard to tell sometimes, as they are always bickering.

Luna Armonia
A war orphan, younger sister to Soris, and mobile suit pilot, eventually serving with her sister under Valder Farkill.
Mark Bernett
Odin and Odell's late father. He developed a new type of engine that would go on to be used in the Gundam Griepe. He and his wife were killed in a shuttle explosion that was thought to be an accident, but had actually been planned by Doctor Berg. (Name translated as Barnett in some sources.)

Odel Bernett

The older of the Bernett brothers, Odel is the top MS pilot at MO-V. He is distrustful of the OZ delegates who come to his home. Odel had to help raise his younger brother after the loss of their parents. With Berg's help, he adopted the identity of Silver Crown and secretly aided MO-V from within OZ. Unfortunately, Prize's new leader Valder Farkill realized what was happening and attacked Odel as he attempted to send the Gundam Griepe to Odin. After getting away from OZ, Odell returned to MO-V. He participated in the final battle, helping to defeat Kratz and personally finishing Berg. (Name translated as Odell or Barnett in some sources.)

Odin Bernett

The younger Bernett brother and main character of the series, Odin is frustrated at living in the shadow of his brother. Impulsive and brash, Odin hasn't been able to master the self-control needed to take full advantage of the new G-Unit and its PX system. At first Odin has difficulty using the PX System, but following Odel's apparent death he begins training, and uses it to drive back Roche Natono when he appears with the new Gundam Aesculapius. Later on, Odin receives the Gundam Griepe and learns of his brother's true fate, using the Griepe to drive Farkill off. When Doctor Berg's doomsday plan sends Grand Shario on a rampage to destroy the colonies and Earth, Odin is the one to pilot the combined G-Unit and destroy the battleship, bringing an end to the conflict for good. (Name translated as Adin in many sources.)

Roche Nattono

Former leader of OZ Prize's Stardust Knights, Roche was rescued by MO-V after his own people betrayed him. Now he fights alongside his former enemies. His assistant, Aretha, left OZ to join him. (Name translated as Rosshe in some sources.)

Roga Herman

The elected official of MO-V, Roga is a humble leader who relies stongly on the advice of his communications officer, Tricia Farrell.

Soris Armonia
War orphan, older sister of Luna, and Valder's bodyguard. Dedicated mobile suit pilot.

Tricia Farrell
Communications officer for MO-V. Her chief duties are operating the colony's communications and tracking equipment. She is Odel's fiancée.

Valder Farkill
A member of the Specials and a member of Zechs Merquise's unit. During the rebellion against the Alliance, he scored more kills than the rest of his team combined, earning him the nickname "Dark General of Destruction." He believed that the only person worthy of his skill was Treize Khushrenada, whom he hoped to defeat in combat before taking over leadership of OZ. During the final battle at MO-V, Valder was stunned by the news of Treize's death and was easily killed by Odin Barnett.

Mecha

 

D-Unit
(OZ)
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
MO-V

Pilot(s):
None (Mobile Doll)

A defense mobile doll created by MO-V's Dick Higasaki using a copy of the Mobile Doll System stolen by Odell Bernett.  Built from leftover Leo parts and armed with a pair of beam cannons, the D-Unit was simple and low-cost, allowing MO-V to build several units quickly.

Gundam Asklepios (Aesculapius)
OZ-10VMSX
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Roche Nattono,
Odel Bernett (Silver Crown)

Built from the remains of the destroyed Geminass 02, the Asklepios is a transformable close combat Gundam employed by OZ Prize.  In its normal mode, it's a high-speed attacker armed only with beam swords, but it can transform into a close combat machine, the forearms replaced by giant claws mounting rapid-fire beam guns.  Originally given to Roche Nattono, it was reassigned to the mysterious Silver Crown, a man capable of using the PX System.  After Silver's deception is revealed, Asklepios is repaired by MO-V with Geminass 02's head and given its weapons to strengthen its combat ability.  (As a note, the Asklepios' close combat mode is modeled after the MSM-07 Z'Gok, a mobile suit from the original 1979 Gundam series.)

Classification: Transformable Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium Alloy
Dimensions: Overall height: 18.2 meters, Dry weight: 12.8 tons
Armament: Beam Sword (x2), Python Claw (x2), Rapid Shot (x4), Micro Missiles (x30), G-UNIT Shield, Active Jammer, PX System

Gundam Geminass 01
OZX-GU01A
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
MO-V

Pilot(s):
Odin Bernett

The first of MO-V's G-Units, the Geminass is a general purpose MS intended to show off the basic traits of the G-Unit series. In its basic configuration, it is a capable ground combat mobile suit armed with beam swords and an accelerate rifle, which can fire regular shots or charge up a "Hyper Shot" thanks to the particle accelerator lining its barrel. Though many environmental adaptation modules were planned, the only one produced in time was the B-Unit, which gave the Geminass space mobility thrusters on its shoulders, legs, and backpack. Geminass 01 was painted white and blue with red details and piloted by MO-V's Odin Bernett, who declared his machine a Gundam after hearing that the five rebels on Earth were fighting for the sake of their home colonies.

Classification: Multi-Mode Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium Alloy
Dimensions: Overall height: 17.3 meters, Dry weight: 7.9 tons
Armament: Beam Sword (x2), G-UNIT Shield, PX System, Accelerate Rifle (optional)

Gundam Geminass 02
OZX-GU02A
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
MO-V

Pilot(s):
Odel Bernett

The first of MO-V's G-Units, the Geminass is a general purpose MS intended to show off the basic traits of the G-Unit series. In its basic configuration, it is a capable ground combat mobile suit armed with beam swords and an accelerate rifle, which can fire regular shots or charge up a "Hyper Shot" thanks to the particle accelerator lining its barrel. Though many environmental adaptation modules were planned, the only one produced in time was the B-Unit, which gave the Geminass space mobility thrusters on its shoulders, legs, and backpack. Geminass 02 was painted navy blue and black with orange details and piloted by Odell Bernett, MO-V's ace pilot, who apparently sacrificed his life to save his brother from the Stardust Knights. The remains of his machine would be collected by OZ and remodeled into the Gundam Asklepios.

Classification: Multi-Mode Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium Alloy
Dimensions: Overall height: 17.3 meters, Dry weight: 7.9 tons
Armament:
Beam Sword (x2), G-UNIT Shield, PX System, Accelerate Rifle (optional)

Gundam Griepe
OZ-19MASX
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
MO-V

Pilot(s):
Odin Bernett

Dr. Berg's ultimate G-Unit, the Griepe was developed in secret while on Grandshario and secretly sent to Odin Bernett for the purposes of testing it against OZ Prize and the Hydra Gundam. Like the L.O. Booster, the Griepe can transform into a high-speed flight mode, bolstered by a space propulsion engine developed by Mark Bernett, the late father of the G-Units' pilots. In MS Battle Mode, the Griepe's only weapon is a long beam lancer, while its Mobile Armor Mode mounts a powerful buster mega particle cannon under its nose. The Griepe can also transform into Assault Mode, halfway between MS and MA, to make use of the cannon without fully transforming.

Classification: Multi-Mode Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium Alloy
Dimensions: Overall height: 25.2 meters, Dry weight: 18.2 tons
Armament: Buster Mega Particle Cannon (x1), Beam Lancer (x1), Reflect Shield (x2), PX system, Hyper Mega Particle Launcher (optional)

Gundam L.O. Booster
OZX-GU01LOB
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
MO-V

Pilot(s):
Odin Bernett,
Roche Nattono

The Gundam L.O. Booster is an upgraded version of the Gundam Geminass 01. Based on plans left behind by the traitorous Dr. Berg, the L.O. Booster upgrades the Gundam Geminass to a high speed transformable unit. Aside from the increased mobility, the L.O. Booster features a powerful thrust beam cannon and reactive shield.

Classification: Multi-Mode Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium Alloy
Dimensions: Overall height: 22.3 meters, Dry weight: 23.8 tons
Armament: Beam Sword (x2), Thrust Beam Cannon (x2), Reactive Shield (x1), PX System, Lightweight Accelerate Submachine Gun (optional)

Gundam Prometheus (Burnlapius)
OZ-10VMSX-2

Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Kratz Silvy

Developed by Dr. Berg near the end of the siege at MO-V, the Gundam Prometheus was designed as a superior version of the Asklepios. Noteworthy changes include the addition of a metal sword and shield, the latter mounting a pair of rapid shots, giving Prometheus better weaponry in its regular mode. In Close Combat Mode, its only weapons were a pair of extending python claws, but this flaw was mitigated by the fact that unlike Asklepios, Prometheus suffered no great reduction in mobility because of its transformation. (Like Asklepios, Prometheus' Close Combat Mode is a tribute to classic Gundam; in this case, the MSM-03C Hy-Gogg from Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket.)

Hydra Gundam
OZ-15AGX
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Valder Farkill

Developed by Romefeller for the purpose of hunting down the five rebel Gundams, the Hydra Gundam found its way into the hands of ace pilot Valder Farkill, who redesigned it to battle the Gundam Epyon before heading to MO-V to take over OZ Prize. The Hydra was designed as a high-speed attacker, using a powerful buster gun and beam sabers. Its shoulders mount a set of beam cannons which can operate either on mounting arms, or detach and act as wire-guided all-range attack units. It could also transform into a high speed mode by retracting its legs into its skirt armor, revealing additional thrusters. (NOTE: The Hydra's high speed mode is a tribute to the MSN-02 Zeong, the "final boss" mobile suit from the original Gundam series. Further carrying the reference is the fact that the back of the Hydra's head greatly resembles the Zeong's, and may even mount a monoeye camera, as depicted in SD Gundam G Generation F.)

Classification: Multi-Mode Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium Alloy
Dimensions: Overall height: 24.6 meters, Dry weight: 21.7 tons
Armament: Beam Saber (x1), Buster Rifle (x1), Shoulder Claw (x2), EMF Shield

Leo EWAC (Unofficial Designation)
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ Prize

Pilot(s):
Unknown

A mobile suit introduced in the Last Outpost manga. The OZ-06MS EWAC Leo is a variant of the standard Leo Space Type. It is used for reconnaissance and information-gathering (EWAC stands for Early Warning and Caution). The most notable change to the basic Leo design is the modification of the head unit into a high-power dish radome.

Leo-N
OZ-06MS-SN3
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Broom Brooks

The personal machine of OZ Prize's Broom Brooks, the Leo-N features armor heavy enough to shrug off the Leo's standard 105mm machinegun with no visible damage. Its range is somewhat limited, employing only shoulder-mounted machinecannons and carrying standard beam sabers, which put it at a disadvantage when facing first the G-Units and later Valder Farkill's Hydra Gundam.

Classification: Custom Full Armor Mobile Suit
Material: Titanium alloy (assumed)
Armament: Machinecannon (x2), Beam Saber (x2)

Leo-R
OZ-06MS-SR2
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Kratz Silvy

Kratz Silvy's personal machine, the Leo-R sacrifices armor and defense for incredible speed. Normally its only weapon is a beam lance, used to make high-speed, all-or-nothing charge attacks, but during its second engagement with the G-Units, Kratz used a Taurus' beam cannon to help destroy the Geminass 02.

Classification: Custom High Mobility Mobile Suit
Material: Titanium alloy (assumed)
Armament: Beam Lance (x1), Hyper Launcher (x1, option)

Leo-S
OZ-06MS-SS1
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Roche Nattono

The custom unit of OZ Prize leader Roche Nattono, the Leo-S is an all-around improvement on the basic Leo, rather than focusing on one specific area as its brethren do. Notable customizations include gold etchings, epaulette-style shoulder armor, and a long cape attached to the back. Though the Leo-S's only weapons are a standard beam rifle and beam saber, they are modified to resemble an old matchlock rifle and a fencing saber, respectively, adding to the overall appearance of the machine.

Classification: Custom General Purpose Mobile Suit
Material: Titanium alloy (assumed)
Armament: Beam Rifle (x1), Beam Saber (x1)

Mercurius Shuivan
OZ-13MSX2B-S
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Luna Armonia

A customized version of the experimental Mercurius, piloted by Valder Farkill's right-hand woman Luna Armonia. Externally, Mercurius Shuivan (derived from the French word suivant, meaning "next") is highly similar to the original, except for its white coloration and a completely new head. Mercurius Shuivan also carries twice the number of planet defensors as its predecessor, as well as an A.S. planet defensor like the Scorpio's and a pair of standard beam sabers. The Mercurius Shuivan had the option of operating as a mobile doll if Luna were unable to pilot, its commands being routed through its sister unit, Vayeate Shuivan.

Classification: Custom Close Combat Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium alloy (assumed)
Armament: Beam Gun, Beam Saber (x2), A.S. Planet Defensor (x1), Planet Defensor (x20)

Vayeate Shuivan
OZ-13MSX1B-S
Last Outpost (G-Unit)

Affiliation:
OZ

Pilot(s):
Solis Armonia

A customized version of the Vayeate developed by the Gundam engineers, piloted by Valder Farkill's trusted lieutenant Soris Armonia. Like its sister unit, the Vayeate Shuivan features mostly cosmetic changes, including mostly black coloration and slight changes to its armor. The biggest change is the addition of a second beam cannon, with its own energy collector unit mounted on the back, allowing it to wield one cannon in each hand and deal even greater damage.

Classification: Custom Assault Mobile Suit
Material: Gundanium alloy (assumed)
Armament: Beam Cannon (x2)

Grand Shario
Last Outpost (G-Unit)
Battleship introduced in the Last Outpost manga.  

MO-V
Last Outpost (G-Unit)
Residing on the far side of the asteroid belt, MO-V is farther from Earth than any other colony. It has a population of 100,000, mostly miners, engineers and their families.

Unit System
Last Outpost (G-Unit)
One of the unique technologies behind the G-Unit Gundams produced at MO-V. Its intent is to do away with the old system of mobile suit manufacture, in which machines were designed for only one specific terrain or mission role. All the mobile suits using the Unit System are completely modular, with a system of locking bolts holding them together. Thus, every part of a G-Unit except its cockpit can be quickly and easily changed, allowing one machine to fulfill multiple mission roles all by itself.
PX System
Last Outpost (G-Unit)
The centerpiece of the G-Unit Gundams, the PX System is a powerful but highly unstable combat system, usable only by the best pilots. When activated, the PX System temporarily pushes a mobile suit beyond its normal operational limits, while stimulating an adrenaline surge in the pilot to allow him to cope with both the increased speed and the physical exertion of this brief "super mode". The PX System is typically programmed with an automatic cut-off for safety; if used beyond this time limit, it can cause damage to both the mobile suit and the pilot's brain. While using the PX System, the mobile suit appears to glow, and can move so fast that the human eye can't follow it. During the events of G-Unit/The Last Outpost, the Barnett brothers use "PX Overdrive" in which the system is pushed even further than normal, but with even greater risk of death from its operation.
