Armaments[edit | edit source]
- Laser Cannons
The Giselle has a pair of photon laser cannon turrets (two guns 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 Giselle is armed with a gattling gun pod that's able to fire 1200 rounds per minute,
The Giselle is able to be armed with 2 large missiles on the outer part of each wing
- Micro-Missile Pods
The Giselle is able to arm itself with four micro-missile pods onto its wings, each carrying 15 micro-missiles.
- Drill Punch
Inspired by Noriko, the Giselle 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 Roy Fokker/Focker) was picked for Kazumi due to its similarly to her original RX-7 Giselle from the Gunbuster anime. Of course, to differentiate from the original, the skull and crossbones decals have been removed.
