Well, there's the element of surprise and it could also be that it serves to make the UE more threatening and mysterious, which in turn makes the episode somewhat more interesting. We don't know just what it will do (i.e. will it attempt to attack Flit or is it just there to deliver a message??

The UE's vast murdering spree and destruction is the message.

Could also be the Purple Gafran. Last time we saw it, "teamlead" Gafran was launching a colony destroying thingy to Nora.


Hip-mounted grenade launcher.


Neither shields nor funnels, they are missile launchers -> http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10172138

It probably a hi-maneuver missile to counter the speed of Age-2 jet mode.

Current AGE MS lineup.

--


Fa Bose class fleet carrier, with three detachable escort carriers.


From episode 12, two that attacked the EFF fleet from behind.


From episode 13, the one that tried to ram Diva.

Looks the the Dorado isn't the MS the episode summaries have mentioned.

Dorado ^

New unannounced UE ^

The heads are entirely different, as are the visor colors. So what new suit is this?

The shape of its forehead doesn't look like any of the UE we've seen so far - it could be a new suit altogether.

Pretty much, can't wait to see it though. I hope they reveal it during the week. Just like they did with the Reborns Gundam all those years ago.

The Dorado is supposed to be a 2nd Gen suit so I'm not surprised it's not it.

It is? I always assumed it was a first generation MS. But being a stripped version of the Gafran, I suppose it makes sense. Another UE mook to the slaughter.

I think one scan mentioned it or something. We've even confirmed the Zedas R is a 2nd Gen suit.

The Dorado looks more streamlined too, and a bit different from this gen's designs so that'd probably related possible design preferences of the time.

Really? I don't know, the Dorado looks the same as a the Gafran pretty much. I don't see a whole lot of difference in its style to deem it part of Generation 2.

Ah, the memories. I remember the Exia R2 was mentioned somewhere, and when I first saw a magazine scan of the Reborns I thought it was the Exia R2.

Any particular reason why the Dorado lacks wings, by the way? And are those shield things on its forearms and waist confirmed to be missiles?

EDIT: Realized the Zeidora and Kronos don't have wings either. Hmm.

Maybe they just ditched the wings since they served no big purpose except looks? seems like they have the engine on the back (judging by the vents)

.. or maybe they just don't need one, sort of like the GN drives in 00?

We'll, even Flit didn't know. I think the Age system retained some parts of the photo blaster cannon inside the Age builder for fire control.

Yeah it is pretty cool. I just wished AGE actually elaborates on all this stuff in it's sidematerials.

I agree thoughthere's much competition when the other rival is the Titus.

Wings and binders always add to AMBAC, even in Gundam 00 they relied on AMBAC in space to increase mobility (according to MG Exia). That's pretty important, although not having just means your basically back to the rough AMBAC levels of non-winged mobile suit. Having said that, I don't know whether the Gafran's wings actually help it's mobility in MS Mode though, doesn't appear to be the case from what I can see.

Simplification always has it benefits though, from cost to maintenance.

Do we know whether the Dorado can transform though?

重力下での運動性能が格段に向上されたUEの新機体

Got this regarding the Dorado from the model kit add. It seems that Dorado is designed for high mobility under the gravity
