Gundam Dawn- Arsenal by Tekka-Croe Gundam Dawn- Arsenal by Tekka-Croe
Designs for several of the weapons which can be equipped to my original mobile suit Gundam Dawn [link] . The twin GN Knives* are stored in holsters mounted beneath either side of the chest. The GN Beam Sabers are stored inside the forearms and the GN Beam Daggers are stored in the thighs. The GN Small Shield's front section slides forward to reveal a GN field projector. The GN Beam Carbine is a trimmed-down version of the weapon equipped to the GNS-002 Dawn's sister mobile suit, GNS-001 Spectrum.

These are designs for my original Gundam 00 side-story, Gundam Dawn.

*About those "GN Knives": I'm aware that they are two-edged blades, and as such are technically daggers, not knives. I chose to refer to them as GN Knives because I felt it may be too confusing to have Dawn equipped with both "GN Daggers" as well as "GN Beam Daggers." The name is inaccurate, but it helps avoid confusion.

adding a plasma charge to the knives would make for a great last stand

In my opinion the Beam Carbine might look a bit cooler if you make the Condensor on it the green type you'd see in the joints of the MS.

I'd considered that, but I didn't want to go too overboard on the glowy bits.

Neato. But ah, when does Dawn take place in 00's timeline again? If I recall correctly, doesn't the green Condenser material edge technology that appears on these knives make its debut late in Season 2? If I'm correct, it wasn't perfected until then.

It takes place around the middle of season 1, shortly before the introduction of the mass-produced Tau drive. And yeah, I've been using some design aesthetics from season 2, with weapons especially. For now, I'm saying that Sundial Group's Gundams were used as an early test-bed for condenser type weapons. I plan to have a few moments during a couple of fight scenes that show the condenser blades haven't been perfected at this stage (one of the large condenser-type blades actually shatters during the final battle).

Ah, okay. That puts things into better perspective then.

Will this thing be written or in comic format?

At the moment, written seems the most feasible, though I desperately want to do it as a manga-type comic.

Looking forward to either format myself. Would like to see how you do with a comic though.
