The AMX-022 Dreadnought Gundam is the titular mech of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73 STARGAZER and is a mobile suit featured in Knights of the Multiverse Season 2. It was designed and piloted by Glemy Toto to act as his flagship unit for his rebellion and the resurrection of the Principality of Zeon.

Short #5[edit | edit source]
The Stargazer Gundam was seen at the end of the short, with it appearing among the several other Gundams and other mobile suits created by Axis to do battle with The Knights.

Armaments[edit | edit source]
- Beam Sabers
The Stargazer has two beam sabers stored in its side-skirts.
- Beam Rifle
The Stargazer has a beam pistol with a unique variable output system and focuses more on rate of fire rather than effective range or power. However, one shot can still destroy a mobile suit when it hit the suit's vital places.
- "Halo" Propulsion System
The Stargazer's most significant "weapon" is the "Halo" propulsion system. Like the Zeta Gundam's Bio-Sensor, this system allows its Newtype pilot to more easily interface with his mobile suit via mental commands that amplify the suit's power, speed & strength, with the energy converting into a curtain of light generated by the ring on its back. This takes the form of an energy field which can deflect and capture incoming beam shots, and even create a field of shootable beam cutters. The structure also serves as a movable thruster, it can be separated and move according to the suit's need, granting the Stargazer exceptional mobility.

Notes[edit | edit source]
Like how the Epyon is meant to represent Shinji's decent into rage, the Stargazer is meant to act as a reflection on Glemy's ego, with the suit's halo to symbolize how he views himself as that will bring Zeon back into the light.
Like the other Axis Gundams, the Stargazer's official designation has been changed from its original of "GSX-401FW", though the Stargazer's are simply rearranged a little bit.
The original version of the Stargazer was actually a civilian developed mobile suit designed to explore the regions of space beyond Mars's orbit, with a two-seater cockpit that could be replaced with an advanced A.I. computer that would control the mobile suit using inputted pilot data to learn proper piloting behavior. The Halo was also called the "Voiture Lumiere" (or "solar sail") interplanetary propulsion system and would catch solar winds on a curtain of light generated by the ring on its back and converts its energy into a strong light pressure which is then used as thrust and could even cause interruption to the spatial structure of the suit's surroundings.
