Technical and Historical Notes
After the Saviour Gundams defeat near the island of Crete its wreckage was recovered and plans were drafted to improve the design. The Saviour would be redesignated the Gundam Samiel and given the model number ZGMF-X31T. External the only difference was the inclusion of 4 DRAGOONS to beef up the Gundams firepower. While unusable in its mobile armor mode the Gundam Samiel could use the DRAGOONS in its mobile suit mode. The DRAGOONS were made to swive forward, similarly to Freedoms Xiphias rail guns, so they could be used on Earth. Internaly there are a few minor differences to the controls to allow it to perform better. This suit was origonally intended for use by ZAFT pilot Rey Za Burrel and was to be completed shortly after Athrun and Shinn recived their new Gundams, the Legend and Destiny respectivly. HOwever after Athrun's desertion and Rey being reassigned to the Legend the design for the Samiel was dropped as ZAFT didn't have a pilot for it at the time.
