This gundam paper model is a detailed GN-011 Gundam Harute (aka Gundam Harute, Harute), the successor unit to GN-007 Arios Gundam in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie -A wakening of the Trailblazer-. The unit is piloted by Allelujah Haptism and co-piloted by Soma Peries.
Designated as a 5th generation Gundam, the Gundam Harute is the latest in Celestial Being's line of transformable mobile suits. Harute's overall design is derived from the combined technical and combat data of GN-007 Arios Gundam, GNR-101A GN Archer and GNR-010/XN XN Raiser. Because Celestial Being no longer had the resources it used to develop brand new units, they decided not to design a new unit and instead based Harute directly from Arios's and GN Archer's development platforms; however, due to upgrades in new equipment and weapons, Harute's capabilities are significantly greater over its predecessor.
One of the most unique features of Harute is its cockpit. It is more compact than Arios', but made to be utilized by two pilots. It's a two-seat cockpit control system, the first of its kind amongst Gundams. The cockpit controls are delegated between Soma and Allelujah. The controls are built similar to 21st century fighter cockpits, both seats have helm controls for co-use and support. While Allelujah focuses on aerial combat tactics, Soma focuses on weapons and systems control. Because of their quantum brainwaves, they can communicate, delegate commands, and change tactics between each other and Harute beyond what normal humans can do. The combined abilities of the two super soldiers are capable of bringing out the full potential of Harute's speed and firepower, making it a formidable enemy in combat.
Harute's fighter form was developed from Archer Arios. The thrusters are derived from GN Archer, the rear Tail Unit container from Kyrios, its weapons system from XN Raiser, and the forward section mostly from Arios. Harute's design is a departure from Kyrios and Arios, though the previous two generations were capable of operating in outer space, they were designed primarily for atmospheric combat. Harute reverses this trend, redesigned as a zero-gravity fighter.
Harute has a less aerodynamic design than its predecessors, but it can achieve far greater speeds. This is due to six thrusters acting as its primary means of propulsion to create large bursts of acceleration. Harute, like the GN-010 Gundam Zabanya, can also be further complemented with its GN Heavy Weapons upgrades. Harute's Heavy Weapons upgrade is in the form of two GN Boosters attached onto its legs, giving the unit greater speed and possibly mobility in both modes. Due to the fact that it was built with heavy equipment in mind, its mobility is inferior to that of the Brave series.
Many aspects of its weapons and technology were derived from the incomplete XN Raiser project. Like XN Raiser, Harute's GN Sword Rifles double as wings and cleavers in its fighter form. When launched from Ptolemy, the wings remained folded upwards to adjust its limited space. The rifles attached to the wing are retractable; they are fixed particle guns for cross-firing. The blade-wings allow Harute to cut and/or gouge through enemy targets on either side of its wings.
GN Archer's head sensor and propulsion system survived and evolved onto Harute's frame; new MS developments have miniaturized the GN Verniers, making the entire system smaller and allowing more space for other systems. The original large intake ports have been replaced with a pair of GN Cannons, capable of acting as heavy level beam armaments. In addition they also act as a container for its GN Scissor Bits to help Harute manage against superior enemy numbers. 5 more GN Scissor Bits can be optionally stored in each leg of the GN Boosters.
The sides of the thrusters no longer double as GN Missile containers like the GN Archer. The original Tail Unit for Kyrios returns as a weapons platform for Harute. The Tail Unit's overall design remains unchanged, the top of the Tail Unit will expose 12 VLS missile silos that can fire volleys of GN Missiles in combat, usually against long-ranged targets and double as countermeasures against enemy fire. Once depleted, Harute can jettison/eject the Tail Unit and even make it act as a bomb onto pursuing enemies.
When transforming, the thrusters are folded diagonally back at its sides, with the head sensor unit and tail container folding back to allow flexible mobility for MS combat. The bottom forward armor plating folds down to form the chest. Its forward guns and blades can be attached to the side of the thrusters or deployed forward in mid-transformation for immediate attacks.
One revolutionary feature of Harute is the Marute System, a special OS that can accommodates a three-pilot control simultaneously presumably with the net result of improving performance. Overall, Harute represents the pinnacle of CB's transformable Gundams, able to draw out the latent abilities of its super soldier pilots, becoming a force to be feared on the battlefield.
