Gundam Wing starts in the year After Colony 195 with the beginning of Operation Meteor, five resentful researchers devise a plot of vengeance against the Organization of the Zodiac (aka OZ) who abuses and spreads tyranny over the space colonies. The project includes creating mobile suits called Gundams, which came from a rare material called Gundanium Alloy. Also includes five young men who have each been picked and prepared, then, at that point, shipped off to Earth freely with each of their own Gundam Suits.

In addition, because of the material used in creating the Gundam- this has become a huge asset in the success of Operation Meteor. Imagine a mechanized robot made up of metal that has features with incredible strength, heat resistance of titanium, is non-conductive (ideal for use with Beam-type weapons and armors), and best of all, cannot be detected by any types of radar. If I were the enemy, it’s either I will surrender or snatch one of those Gundams which is nearly impossible to do especially if you are up against highly combat trained pilots.



Here are the five Gundams that are introduced in the Gundam Wing:

1. Wing Gundam

    • This strategy is the last option if the pilot is unable to ensure that the Gundam won’t fall into the enemy’s hands.

The significant contributor to Wing’s mobility is the pair of wing units on the backpack. These units create lift, however, can likewise change the aerodynamic qualities of the Mobile Suit through the developments of their independent panels, supporting the scale of speed from slow to hypersonic. Indeed, even in space, the wing units display high mentality control ability utilizing both AMBAC and inherent vernier engines. By changing into Bird Mode, Wing’s mobility and maneuver range are expanded further.
