OMS-001GX Gundam Serentiy . A Gundam-type Mobile Suit that is the star of my own Mobile Suit storyline/universe. . This Gundam-type Mobile Suit was orignally designed to be the replacement semi-mass-produced Mobile Suit for Project SCION. Like the other weapon platforms used by the SCIONs, they are able to directly interface with the unit. Due to certain events that occurred during the uprising, only one was ever build, which was kept in a hidden storage facility for years. The Serenity.
Serenity is powered by a compact Dual-Core Nuclear Fission-Fusion Reactor. This type of reactor produces a near-limitless supply of energy, which enables the Gundam to use high-powered beam weaponry. The entire weapon system draws its energy directly from the Mobile Suit, instead of from energy packs (E-Packs, which are similar to standard magazines).
Beam Carbine with under-mounted Beam Shotgun
2x Hyper Beam Sabers
4x Vulcan Cannons
2x Beam Anti-Missile Defense Systems
A storage container launches into the air. Onlookers stare in awe and curiosity as to what this object may contain.
The container separates into two pieces, revealing a Mobile Suit.
Free from storage, Serenity hovers in the air for a moment.
The wings spread, and the Hyper Beam Sabers are armed. Note: I did not want to do the classic "Wing Gundam Zero Custom" pose for two reasons. 1) It is overdone, and 2) I wanted to show off the flexibility of the wings. I reverse-engineered the wings from ccy 8086's Wing Gundam Zero Custom. However, I found that the main wings were too small for Serenity, and therefor made them much larger. And more flexible since they can flex in both directions.
Serenity as viewed from the front. The basic design came from Mithryl Altaire. I used Strike Freedom Gundam as a base for this Gundam. The legs and lower arms are redesigned and modified from Strike Freedom. The torso and shoulders are modified from Strike Gundam.
A rear view of Serenity. Notice that there are not only main thrusters on each wing assembly, but lots of smaller vernier thrusters as well. This attributes to Serenity not only being able of unassisted atmospheric flight, but also being the most maneuverable Mobile Suit in existence.
Serenity's head was inspired by Apocalypse Sin by Thomas Z. I chose to base my head on that design due to it looking very "knightly". Plus, the four-finned V-Fin design is always used by the most awesomsauceness Gundams EVAR!
The Beam Anti-Missle Defense System mounts on the shoulders. Although they do not possess adequate power output to be used offensively, they are very affective at eliminating incoming missiles and other equivalent munitions. Also seen are more vernier thrusters that are mounted on the shoulders.
A Beam Shield generator is mounted on each forearm.
The Beam Shield activated.
Leg vernier thrusters. As if Serenity did not have enough already.
Unlike most Mobile Suits, the Hyper Beam Sabers are mounted on the torso instead of the side skirts or a backpack unit.
The Hyper Beam Sabers drawn and armed. They are designated as "Hyper" for a reason.
Serenity's Beam Rifle is normally semi-automatic firing. It has a dual-folding "barrel extension" which concentrates the beam shot. The barrel extension can be used for either a highly-concentrated beam for long-range sniping, or to create a massive blast of mass destruction. Options, options...
The Beam Rifle mounts to the right side skirt armor.
The selective-fire Beam Carbine is the weapon of choice for mid- to close-range combat. It is small and compact enough (for a Mobile Suit, anyways) to be used in smaller confined spaces. The under-mounted Beam Shotgun is useful in CQC (Close-Quarters Combat) when drawing a Beam Saber is not feasible nor quick enough to eliminate the target(s).
The Beam Carbine mounts onto the left side skirt armor.
Both the Beam Carbine and Rifle are drawn, with the extended barrel on the Rifle shown at its full length.
A close-up of the Serenity's rear torso. The upper portion houses the reactor. The component on the lower torso is the 0-Shift. The 0-Shift works by first compressing space, then rapidly expanding it. This propels the object in the opposite direction a high velocity. Over relatively short distances, it gives the visual effect of instantly teleporting. I got the idea for this from Zone of the Enders.
The cockpit exterior. It is modified from the Strike Gundam.
The cockpit opens, revealing the pilot inside.
The pilot, who is a former SCION, went into hiding as a Mobile Suit mechanic at the facility where Serenity is stored. He placed himself there so he would be close to the Gundam, in case she was needed.
The SCION in his suit of personal body armor with his heavy assault rifle.
Serenity in action with both ranged beam weapons drawn.
MAND-E (Multipurpose Assistance Navigation Database - Enhanced) is the highly advanced Smart AI that resides in Serenity. She becomes more commonly known as "Mandy."
A nice parting shot (see what I did there?) for everyone. Serenity is showing the full power of the Beam Rifle.
Another view of the beam blast wave being fired from the Beam Rifle.
Many thanks to first and foremost Mithryl for his awesome Gundam and Mobile Suit designs. Without him, Serenity would not have been possible. Thanks also the Thomas Z. Your various MOCs have been very inspirational for not only this Gundam, but also for future projects. And to ccy 8086. Your Wing Gundam Custom Zero is the best one on MOCPages. I do not care what anyone else says.
This is really the second design of Serenity. I did not like how the first design came out, so I scrapped it. A few of the design ideas will make an appearance with Serenity's sister Gundam (oh my, there will be another Gundam? *gasp*). This was completed before I even began work on my Mobile Core units, but I wanted to wait on posting it. I cannot put my best creation out there first, now can I?
So, please rate and comment. Before you comment, please give it a rating first (this area can be found just below the main picture). I really want this to be my most popular MOC. Like, for-e-ver.
A little something for Mithryl:
