GFB-070 Strikecharge Exceed An accessory for High Grade 1/144 G-Exes, Shaldoll and G-Exes Jackedge. GFB-070 Strikecharge Exceed can transform from Jet mode to the Charge Cannons and X-Rifle or unleash it's firepower in it's twin-headed "Blue Dragon" form. "After the success of the Sabretooth as EFF cover fire, Madorna Workshop was secretly contracted to make a second Exceed, one that would increase EFF firepower to levels not seen before. The result was the GFB-070 Strikecharge Exceed, a unique mesh of stealth and strength with a sense of humour all its own. GFB-070 Strikecharge Exceed on Shapeways Strikecharge was Madorna Workshop's attempt at fooling Vagan pilots. While the unit possessed great firepower, the Strikecharge found its niche in the battlefield in its ability to switch from its Strike Jet form to either its Cannons and Rifle, or the dreaded "Blue Dragon". When attached to the G-Exes, the Strikecharge gave the unit firepower beyond the strength of the AGE-1's DODS weapons, and the Charge Cannons could automatically take down Vagan MS, or be personally controlled by skilled X-Rounder pilots. The X Rifle was a powerful gun, serving as a rapid-fire system for cover fire. The Exceed was given the name "Blue Dragon" by Vagan and Bisidian alike, named after the shower of blue bolts unleashed by the Strikecharge's hidden dragon flyer form. With the X-Rifle detached, the Strikecharge's twin Charge Cannons could deploy as a standalone craft. With full access to the firepower of the Charge Cannons with little recoil, the Blue Dragon could easily outflank enemy MS. Playing mind games with the enemy was the Strikecharge's specialty; would you be fighting one heavily armed G-Exes, or have a twin headed dragon unleashing a flurry of bolts at you from who knows what angle? While the Blue Dragon was a neat mind game and fun for pilots, the trick soon grew stale, and many EFF pilots found it quite cheap, even if it was effective. Vagan armies also adapted to the Blue Dragon's advent, fighting in pairs to reduce the dragon flyer's effectiveness. The Strikecharge also cost the G-Exes, and later the Shaldoll, the use of their rear thrusters, leaving the units slower than newer Vagan designs, which ultimately led to the decommissioning of the Strikecharge fleet. The Charge Cannons proved to be powerful weapons, though, and Bisidian adopted the technology for themselves in their Cloudlash Exceed fleet, while the AGE System used combat data from the Strike Cannons to forge the AGE-2's Double Bullet wear."
