A melee combat Gundam mobile suit meant for psyops and covert warfare.
About this creation
The Gundam Deathscythe was the "masterpiece" of Professor G. It was developed to be a master of infiltration, relying on shock and awe tactics to quickly and effectively accomplish its missions. To this end, one of its primary features was a pair of Hyper Jammer ECM suites mounted on its backpack. When in use, they prevented the Gundam from showing up on radar or visual sensors, rendering it invisible to most electronics. This allowed it to sneak into facilities and even right up to enemy mobile suits without being detected.
Once in combat, the Deathscythe's primary weapon was its namesake beam scythe. The power and overall reach of the scythe enabled it to destroy most single (and sometimes multiple) targets in one sweep, while its high thruster count let it move rapidly from target to target. The Deathscythe also typically carried a Buster Shield on its left arm, which doubled as launchable scissor katar. Rounding out its arsenal was a set of standard head-mounted vulcan guns and collar-mounted machine cannons.
As effective in combat as these features made it, perhaps the greatest weapon the Deathscythe bore was simply the fear it generated. The suddenness with which it arrive, its invisibility on sensors, and the speed and ferocity of its attacks were all designed with psychological warfare in mind. So too was its sinister appearance, incorporating elements such as a bat-like silhouette and hooded, grim reaper visage. All of these factors would make the Deathscythe a singularly fearsome and formidable machine - especially in the hands of the self-styled "God of Death", Duo Maxwell.
