The Aile Strike Gundam is the most common configuration of the Earth Alliance’s Strike Gundam. The Strike utilizes various Striker Packs, each specializing in different combat roles. The Aile Striker pack grants the Strike increased maneuverability in space and the atmosphere but does not enable full atmospheric flight. The Aile Strike Gundam could, however, leap high into the air and glide for an extended period with the help of the Aile Striker. The Aile Strike Gundam is the Earth Alliance’s only remaining Mobile Suit from the G Project, as the other four units fell into the hands of ZAFT. The Aile Strike Gundam was the personal unit of Kira Yamato, the main character of Mobile Suit Gundam Seed until he captured the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam. Mu La Flaga would become the primary pilot after Kira, and the Strike would eventually become the Perfect Strike Gundam.

Included alongside the Aile Strike Gundam for accessories:

  • 57mm High Energy Beam Rifle
  • “Armor Schneider” Combat Knife x2
  • Anti-Beam Shield
  • Beam Saber x2


Articulation
 –

The Aile Strike Gundam is the revived version of the HG R01 Aile Strike Gundam, released in 2011 using the original High Grade molds from way back in 2002! This HGCE Aile Strike Gundam features a thoroughly redesigned construction, incorporating all the latest engineering missed in the decade following the initial High Grade release. The Aile Strike Gundam has no problem pulling off any pose, with its double-jointed knees and elbows. The Aile Strike Gundam’s swiveling thighs will give the model a dynamic look in any stance. Even the Aile Striker’s wings and trusters articulate, making flying poses that much easier.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The 57mm High Energy Beam Rifle includes an articulated handle for the Aile Strike Gundam’s opposite hand. You’ll also find a pair of deployed combat knives, which require some silver paint to match their appearance in the anime. Unlike their anime counterparts, these knives do not fold up for storage within the Mobile Suit. They are purely decorative. With the Striker Pack comes two standard Beam Sabers, each with its own Beam Effect for display purposes.

X Runners total (A, B1, C, G, M1, N, O, SB13, PC002)

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGCE #171 GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
