HG Ahead English Manual and Color Guide

1/144 HG GNX-704T Ahead Construction Manual and Color Guide

The GNX-704T Ahead that came out in the first scene of Gundam 00 Season 2. It was the most advance mobile suit of A-Laws at that time and was reserved for flight leaders and other top pilots. Variants of these that came out were the Smultron of Soma Peries and the unit of Mr. Bushido. Based from the literature found on the manual, it seems that the Ahead was based from the Human Reform League's Tieren space type.

Maybe one of the more despicable side of this Ahead unit is that it plays host to the Automaton's of A Laws that the Ahead mobile suit carries as a container on its back. The Automaton are programmed killing robots that once dropped into an enemy base do the dirty deed of cleaning up the enemy by means of their machine guns. Gun fire is not enough to drop these robots as it usually takes a small amount of explosives to disable one.

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the GNX-704T Ahead was translated to English from the original construction manual posted at Dalong
