Technical and Historical Notes

Quite possibly the least expected mobile weapon to enter combat in the war was the so-called "FalconWing", built in secret by Gundam pilot Heero Yuy's youngest child Ariana, age 14 at the time. Ariana, an avid and naive collector of war memorabilia, had obtained the wreckage of the Gundams Wing, Wing-Zero, and Epyon, as well as various other scrap parts, and tore them apart to study. Wanting to possess a functional mobile suit of her own, Ariana used these ruined bits coupled with an uncanny knack for mechanical work to gradually piece together a combat-capable mobile suit. She named the unit, based on Heero's Wing Gundam's design, "FalconWing". After Prototype Mobile Suits, Inc upgraded the salvaged unit, it was redesignated the "PMS-XXXG-01W2-R FalconWing (Refit)".

The original FalconWing, though formidable, had a number of flaws in its design. For one, while much of the suit was armored with Gundanium alloy, a great deal of its internal hardware was salvaged from whatever Ariana could get parts from, including mass-produced units such as OZ's Leo and Virgo. While it could easily out perform the mass-produced units presently being fielded, it was outperformed itself by the modern Gundams of Mars, and very nearly by the limited production Gryphon in use by the Preventers. Another problem was the suit's software. Ariana was unable to salvage a combat operating system from the trashed suits, and so she had to adapt a racing mobile suit's software for use in the FalconWing's computers. It is possible that this is what also made the ZERO system in the unit go haywire.

Both problems were fixed with the refit, and the ZERO system had been removed earlier by Heero Yuy. While the suit's armament is identical to the original FalconWing, it by far outperforms it, and sports a new orange and blue paint job. Much to her older brother Yoshino's dismay, Ariana intends to pilot her mobile suit to the end of the Venusian conflict.
