After War Gundam X (1996)

After War Gundam X (also known as "Mobile New Century Gundam X") is the seventh television series in the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise (dating back to 1979) and the third not set in the franchise's usual Universal Century. timeline. Set fifteen years after a war between the Earth Government and the rebelling space colonies results in 99% of humanity being wiped out, the series follows a group of salvage dealers (called "Vultures") who find themselves entangled in a pre-war conspiracy involving Newtypes (humans with E.S.P. capabilities, a signature of the Gundam franchise), a newly-formed earth government, and the GX-9900 Gundam X aboard their ship.

Gundam X is notable for both being the first post-apocalyptic Gundam title as well as the shortest Gundam television series until 2014's deliberately short Reconguista in G; as the fourth in a line of Gundam series to be aired without breaks between them (premiering the week after the end of the previous series), audience fatigue resulted in it suffering low ratings throughout it's broadcast and after being moved to a 6:00AM Saturday timeslot, ratings dropped to the point that the series was cut to 39 episodes (down from it's originally planned 49 episode run).

The following weapons were used in the anime series After War Gundam X:


Colt Double Eagle

Garrod Ran, the pilot of the GX-9900 Gundam X, carries what appears to be an Colt Double Eagle with him whenever he's not piloting a mobile suit.

Jamil's Pistol

Jamil Neate, captain of the Freeden and the first pilot of the Gundam GX-9900, carries a fictional semi-automatic pistol with him at all times. While it is a fictional design, it is based heavily on the CZ 75 series of pistols with changes to the triggerguard, safety, and grip panels. This weapon is also seen in the hands of Estardian rebels, and may be a pre-war military design.

Unknown Beretta pistol

When Garrod decides to auction off his newly acquired GX-9900 Gundam X, one of the bidders starts to draw a Beretta pistol (the exact model cannot be determined, as the only clearly-shown feature is Beretta's signature cutaway slide) before Garrod informs the audience that the cockpit is rigged with explosives.

The thug begins to draw his weapon, but stops when he realizes he can't just take the Gundam by force. (Ep07)

Colt Python

Witz Sou carries a 6-inch Colt Python with him while off duty.

Submachine Guns

N.U.N.E. SMG (Futuristic MP5K)

Most of the N.U.N.E. soldiers stationed on military bases or vessels are armed with a futuristic submachine gun. Upon closer inspection, this weapon is revealed to be just a Heckler & Koch MP5K with a number of cosmetic modifications, most notably a shell around the receiver, barrel and handguard. The crew of the Freeden also use these weapons during their prison break at the N.U.N.E. facility on Zonder Epta island.

A number of AK pattern rifles are seen in the hands of various smaller military forces, most notably the Republic of Estardia. The weapons are drawn rather generic, making it impossible to determine which exact AK variant they are intended to be.
