The MSB-GH03 Gundam Helios (ガンダムヘリオス Gandamu Heriosu?) is a Gunpla that appears in the Gundam Breaker Battlogue ONA. It first debuted in Gundam Breaker Mobile.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
A high-performance custom Gunpla designed by Ryusei Fudou, the Gundam Helios is the successor of the Gundam Areus. Like its predecessors it is a versatile machine capable of a variety of combat scenarios and fighting styles. Based on the Destiny Gundam, the Gundam F91, and the Gundam X and Double X, the Helios adds new parts like the aeroelastic wings of the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam and Psycho-Frame from the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. It was given the name Helios due to the brilliant light it emits when its wings and heat radiation fins are all deployed.
Head-mounted vulcans which can deal light damage to opponents.
Breast Beam Vulcan
Four beam vulcans built into the chest below the intakes. Used for direct assault in close quarters, or restricting enemy movement and intimidating enemies at medium range.
"Palma Fiocina" Palm Beam Cannon
Hand-mounted beam cannons similar to the ones used by the Destiny Gundam, the Gundam Artemis and the Gundam Areus.
A mid-ranged beam rifle based on the high-energy beam rifle used by the Destiny Gundam, it is the Gunpla's primary ranged weapon. It can be stored on the right side skirt armor when not in use.
"Solidus Fulgor" Beam Shield Generator
Two shield generators, one mounted on each arm, capable of producing a powerful beam shield similar to the one used by the Destiny Gundam, the Gundam Artemis and the Gundam Areus. Unlike the former, where the generators were mounted on the hands, the beam shield generators are now mounted on the forearm armor of the Gunpla.
Twin-Phaser Satellite Cannon
A pair of beam cannons similar to the one used by the GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X. They are stored between the wings of the Helios when not in use and deploy over the shoulders of the Gunpla. Unlike the Areus, the twin cannons do not receive microwave energy stored from the Voltiere Lumiere system, but they instead draw energy through an unknown method built into the new Freedom-based wings of the Helios.
"Balaena" Plasma Beam Cannon
A pair of powerful plasma beam cannons located in the wings of the Freedom Gundam, which serve to amplify the Gundam Helios' long range capabilities. Due to the inverted placement of the wings, the Balaena deploys upside down, mounted to the hip binders of the Gundam, and usually deployed along with the Twin-Phaser Satellite Cannon.
Large Beam Sword
A large beam sword is stored on the rear end of both back-mounted satellite cannons, in a similar fashion to its predecessor Gundam Artemis and the Gundam Areus. They now serve as the primary melee weapons of the Gundam Helios.
Special Equipment & Features
Heat Radiation Fins
A set of heat radiation fins stored inside the shoulders, arms, and calf armors of the Gundam Helios, similar to the ones used by Gundam F91 and Gundam Double X. These fins unfurl themselves when the Helios prepares to fire the Twin-Phaser Satellite Cannon, and are used to dispel the extra heat generated by firing the cannons.
