GAT-X133 Sword Calamity

The GAT-X133 Sword Calamity is a prototype close-quarters combat mobile suit developed from the Calamity Gundam.

While the original GAT-X131 Calamity is an artillery mobile suit, the Sword Calamity is primarily designed for close combat with armament derived from that of the GAT-X105+AQM/E-X02 Sword Strike. Its main weapon is a pair of large anti-ship swords similar to that used by Sword Strike, but they now also function as laser guns. Other close combat weaponry includes pairs of beam boomerangs, rocket anchors and combat knives. Sword Calamity retains the energy cannon of the original Calamity, but its power is reduced in exchange for longer operational time.
