Armaments[edit | edit source]
- Laser Cannons
The Nausicaa has a pair of photon laser cannon turrets (one gun on each side) attached to the side of its head, inspired by the Vulcan guns mounted to the Zeta Gundam's head.
- Gun Pod
The Nausicaa is armed with a gattling gun pod that's able to fire 1200 rounds per minute,
The Nausicaa is able to be armed with 2 large missiles on the outer part of each wing
- Micro-Missile Pods
The Nausicaa is able to arm itself with four micro-missile pods onto its wings, each carrying 15 micro-missiles.
- Drill Punch
A super move of sorts, the Nausicaa is able to spin its hand unit very fast, dealing a considerable amount of damage. However, the first few times this move was used, it overpowered the arm and tore it apart.
Notes[edit | edit source]
This version of the Valkyrie (piloted famously by Rick Hunter/Hikaru Ichijyo) was picked for Noriko due to its similarly to her original RX-7 Nausicaa from the Gunbuster anime, which in of itself was named after the film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
