Background Information: "Gundam 02," as the Deathscythe was code-named by OZ forces, was equipped with standard vulcan guns and machinecannons for ranged weapons. However, its primary armament was its large, deadly beam scythe, capable of slicing through enemy mobile suits like a knife through hot butter. The Deathscythe also carried a "buster shield," which mounted

two solid blades and a beam blade and could be launched spinning into a target for a rather messy, destructive effect. But in order to use these weapons effectively, the Deathscythe was also equipped with a "hyper jammer" ECM system, making the Gundam invisible to various types of electronic sensors, thus allowing the mobile suit to slip in and attack when the enemy isn't looking. The Deathscythe's pilot, Duo Maxwell, became well known as the "God of Death" for his mastery of these stealthy strikes.
