1/100 MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type English Color Guide

Bandai 1/100 MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type English Translation of Color Guide
Update: English translated construction manual of the 1/100 Tieren can be found here.

The Human Reform League's MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type from the Gundam 00 Season 1. The Zeon Mobile Suit definitely has such as strong influence on this one, with the color, the mono eye and the shape of the head. There is also a space version of the Tieren with large propellant canisters on its legs and is usually colored blue. Another Tieren type is the Taozi which was specifically designed to take advantage of the Quantum brainwaves of Soma Peries. Bandai however did not make any 1/100 kits of this, only some High Grade versions.

There are other Tieren types that you can see at the Gundam 00 official site. The Tieren looks more like a brute mobile suit with defense and offense more in mind rather than maneuverability. Some versions give it limited flight capability but I don't think it can match the maneuverability of a Gundam or even an Enact or Flag fighter.

Color Guide was translated from the manual posted over at Dalong. This posts seems to be the last of the translated color guides by me of the 1/100 Non Grade model kits in the Gundam 00 line of Bandai.
