GT-9600 Gundam Leopard
The GT-9600 Gundam Leopard is one of three Gundam-type mobile suits which were used by the Old Earth Federation during the 7th Space War in the anime series Gundam X. Like the other two units the Gundam Leopard also features a flash system, which allows a Newtype pilot to remote-control mobile bits, in the Leopard’s case the FT-9600 GT-Bit. Although it is incapable of atmospheric flight the Gundam features a set of gliding wheel in its feet. With this wheel it can drive on the ground at high speed.
The Gundam Leopard is truly a walking fortress. Its main weapon is a inner arm Gatling (which is also used by the GT-Bit) but it also features a large amount of other projectile weapons like grenade launchers and misiles, it armed with only beam knife for close combat though.
Like other Gundams, Gundam Leopard can be docked with G-Falcon fighter. G-Falcon is powerful enough to lift Gundam Leopard, make it capable for atmospheric flight.
Although the Old Earth Federation constructed a high number of this mobile suits, only one unit surived the mass colony drop and in AW 0015 this unit is used by Roybea Loy. During this time it was upgraded with a S-1 booster so that the unit could be used under water. Roybea’s Gundam was heavily damaged by the NRX-010 Gable but later it was repaired and upgraded to the the GT-9600-D Gundam Leopard Destroy.
