The AMX-017 GINN is a robot from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and is a mass-produced Mobile Suit featured in Knights of the Multiverse Season 2. They were created by Axis Zeon in their war effort across the Multiverse and are operated by pilots that serve under Mashymre Cello.

Weapons[edit | edit source]
- Heavy Blade
Rather than the standard-issue Beam Saber, the GINN uses a double-edged sword with an appearance similar to an European broadsword. The weapon relies on both its weight and the force of the attack to crush armor as much as on its keenness to cut, and has proven highly effective against the armor of most Mobile Suits and other metals, but can be countered by a beam saber. When not in use, the blade is mounted on the left side of the waist.
- Heavy Assault Machine Gun
- Short-Range 3-barrel Missile Launcher
An optional weapon, the GINN is able to mount a pair of short-range guided missile launchers onto it's legs.
Notes[edit | edit source]
The GINN was chosen since its armored-up appearance and European-like swords fit with Mashymre's knight-like attitude, and helps to make his forces very distinct from the other Zeon forces seen in the series.
- Funny enough, in the original Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny, the GINNs would be developed into the Cosmic Era's own versions of the Zaku (probably just out of laziness), and in KotM, this has sort of been reversed, since this version of the GINN is developed from the original Zaku II.
