Story: C.E (Cosmic Era) 72…
A period of time that would later be known as the “Two Blank Years”. Some call it “the time of peace on thin ice”, others “the break time for the next madness”. This is a story of the in-between.
In the space between the two wars, this is the story of those who risked their lives for the hollow unit named ODR(Orb Disaster Relief Team), an international organization with a wide range of missions including medical care, education, technological exchange, and international goodwill.
The flight module on its back has been newly sculpted. The fuselage color is an original color based on gray and navy blue, faithfully reproducing the design created by mechanical designer Junichi Akutsu.
The Aile Calamity Gundam’s main weapon is the “Adler” a composite armament made for air combat, with the ability to change into four different modes: Warhammer Mode, Rifle Mode A, Rifle Mode B, and Javelin Mode.
