A Shrunken Gear of Metal

When I first cast my eyes upon this magnificent piece of machinery back in Culture Japan Con in 2013, ThreeA’s Metal Gear REX’s sheer size amazed me, even to this day.

The Possibility of the Unicorn

Unicorn Gundam is fitted with an operating system called the NT-D, which will automatically triggered when the presence of a NewType is detected on its immediate battlefield.

Masked as NewType-Drive, its true name is actually NewType-Destroyer, an anti-NewType operating system (Obviously).

Upon detection, the Beast of Possibility will convert into its Destroy Mode, greatly increased in performance and mobility in order to deal with the threat that is a NewType.

The only flaw of the system is its inability to distinguish between true NewTypes or the artificial Cyber NewTypes.

Due to the massive stress faced by the pilot during its operation, the system limited itself a 5 minutes time frame (In order not to kill its pilot by accident) before the fail-safe kicks in, reverting it back to its Unicorn Mode. 

As such the system is more suitable to be used by a (Cyber) NewType. Oh, the irony!

In the story, the Shield holds within itself an I-Field generator, able to deflect incoming beam attacks, except solid projectiles or point-blank attacks.
