The GN-002 Gundam Dynames ( GN-002 Gundam Dynames) is a fictitious humanoid weapon, the protagonist mobile suit of the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam 00. The name Dynames is derived from dunamis, the Greek name for Virtues. The design of the Dynames focuses upon long-range artillery and suppressive fire via sniping. To this end, its standard armaments include the GN Sniper Rifle and an assortment of other firearms suited to different combat scenarios. For higher accuracy in targeting, the unit's facial armor can be reconfigured to Sniper Mode, exposing a forehead scope used specifically with a rifle-like control device within the cockpit. The cockpit also contains customized dock for Lockon's Haro, which acts primarily to assist in suit movement and enemy detection. Dynames also has the ability to ride the Kyrios' Mobile Armor mode. The unit's primary thrusters are located behind the hip. Additional missiles may be launched from the compartment within the openable front skirt. GN Sniper Rifle A long-barreled beam rifle, which serves Dynames' primary armament during standard sniping missions. The abundant energy output of the GN Drive and the high-performance fire-control system connected with the unit's forehead scope allow for the accurate ground-to-air or air-to-ground sniping of moving targets at extremely high altitude. The rifle may be detached and mounted on a bipod, but is usually secured to the Dynames' right rotatable shoulder dock. A scope is attached above the barrel. GN Beam Pistol A pair of small beam-based handguns normally docked on either calf of the unit when not in use. Designed for close-quarters and melee combat, or when the sniper rifle is otherwise inappropriate. A sensor is situated beneath the barrel. Lockon is apt at using these weapons in sneak attacks, especially when the arm movements of Dynames is partially obscured by the GN Full-Shield, hiding Beam Pistol from view. GN Beam Saber Two beam-based melee weapons, stored at either side of the moveable rear thrusters. They differ from the Exia's standard-length beam sabers only in grip design, and are capable of the same performance. GN Shield & Full-Shield Standard armaments include a small GN Shield, secured upon the rotatable shoulder dock opposite the sniper rifle. Though the jamming effect caused by GN particle release is exploited by the Dynames as a means of obscuring its sniping position, the possibility exists that enemy units may be able to determine its location by triangulating from ballistic trajectory. With counter-sniper tactics in mind, an alternative set of defensive equipment may be selected based on the nature of the mission -- the mantle-like GN Full-Shield, which consists of two shoulder-docked shield extensions, with movable panels that offer varying degrees of frontal protection without impeding unit mobility. GN Rifle - Extreme Long Range Optional stationary armaments can be used increase the Dynames' range of fire to include orbital targets. A 20 second recharge is required between shots, and it is likely that the scope of the gundam calculates data necessary to target with sufficient accuracy (taking into account the movement of the orbital target and potential beam refraction in the Earth's atmosphere).
