DESCRIPTION:
   ZAFT CGUE (Pronounced "Seh-GOO")
   ZAFT's ZGMF-515 CGUE is an improved version of their standard ZGMF-1017 GINN and is designed for use by commanders and ace pilots such as Rau Le Creuset. The CGUE is faster and more maneuverable than a standard GINN, and their armament differs somewhat. The CGUE is armed with a heavy assault machine gun and heavy sword similar to that of the GINN, but it can also be equipped with a combination shield and vulcan gun system on its left arm. In addition to the standard CGUE, ZAFT also creates the experimental design YFX-200 CGUE DEEP Arms. During the war, one unit is used by ace pilot Rau in many duels with famous enemy ace Mu La Flaga. However, after the attack on Heliopolis, Rau usually stays behind on the battleship Vesalius and lets his subordinates do most of the fighting with their four stolen Gundams.

---M7070 Shield (+2D): When a Mobile Suit (or mecha in general) is equipped with a shield, they can use this to defend against incoming attacks, both ranged and close combat.  They must declare a Mecha Parry, just like using the Melee Parry or Dodge skills.  The SHield is placed between the Mecha and the attack and used to absorb the damage.  The Shield's dice are rolled at the same time as the Hull Dice of the mecha, but kept seperate (perhaps use different color dice?).  When the damage total is added up compare to the total of the Parry Dice.  As usual, if the defender wins, there is no damage.  But, if the damage rolls higher than the normal Shield dice, then the Shield takes damage like a normal Vehicle or Starfighter (see Star Wars D6 RPG for rules).  So, if the Shield is ionized, it becomes unuseable for as long as that takes to work out because it was hit so hard.  If Damage would decrease the Hull Dice, then the Shield loses these dice as it is damaged from the attack.  If it would be "stunned", then it works the same way.  If the damage would destroy the shield, then it has either been blown or cut in half or blown away by the attack.  Shields are an effective yet cheap way to grant protection from extreme attacks without giving actual energy shields to a mecha.

*Natural Pilots: If a ZAFT mobile suit is ever piloted by a Natural human, all Difficulty Levels for piloting will be increased by one Level.  If this roll is not made, the pilot will recieve no bonus dice from Maneuverability or Fire Control of Weapons.  Also, if a proper Operating System is not installed for natural pilots, then these bonuses will be -1D

---Ultracompact Energy Battery: in the Gundam SEED setting, ZAFT has dispersed many Neutron Jammers across Earth and uses them extensively in space.  This means nuclear power and weapons systems are impossible to use and forces both sides to rely in various compact energy batteries to power their ships and mobile suits.
  Because of this, when using any of these machines in the Gundam SEED setting, take the unit's Hull Dice number, multiply it by 100 (add 25 per pip), and this is the amount if power in the battery system (600 for standard GINNs).
  When mobile suit/mobile armor launches, it begins depleting it's battery by at least 1 per round.  If it has energy weapons (I.e., beam sabers, beam rifles, etc.) or other advanced high-energy systems directly connected to it's power supply (Phase Shift Armor, Mirage Colloid, etc.), then these will draw more power from the battery.  Energy weapons draw power points equal to their Damage Dice.  Equipment like Phase Shift Armor or Mirage Colloid draw power points equal to the mobile suit's Hull Dice.  All of this is per round of activation.

WRITE-UP NOTES:
   The ZAFT GINN is starfighter scale, like most mecha, because it is space and flight capable.  I have chosen most of the dice codes for it based on its size (which is similar to a space transport in Star Wars D6, and lack energy shields), and the fact that it is an early model (other more improved models follow later with improved statistics, which is why the GINN may still seem comparatively weak in may ways).  The Ginn and most standard mobile suits do not actually "fly" in an atmosphere, but can jump with their equipped thrusters.  Their space speed may seem slow when compared to other starfighters from Star Wars D6, but these are earlier models (later designs are much faster), and what amounted to "starfighters" (mobile armors) in the Gundam Seed setting were not so fast anyways.
