The ORB-02 Amaterasu was original developed a successor for the Akatsuki Gundam, in order to make up for the loss in fighting strength created by giving the Akatsuki to the Three Ships Alliance, Morganreote under direction of Eileen Canaver began development on the unit as a means to over come some of the problems inherent with Akatsuki's design.The first step was to eliminate the need for pack conversions, which were far too costly and difficult to deploy into battle. Thus the decision was made to give Amaterasu full flight capabilities while retaining the option to use the mobile turret system. The end result was the ORB-02 Amaterasu.

Most of the technology used in the Amaterasu was actually taken from the ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom, the flight system, a hybrid of traditional propulsion and the Voiture Lumiere propulsion system. the unit's wings, which fold to the sides when not in flight mode were also heavily reinforced and given a sharpened edge allowing them to become bladed weapons for close range combat in space. The Amaterasu also featured two Raijin guided turret units, though both were much more powerful than the original turrets, and could operate longer thanks to internal batteries, were still too power consuming, and thus were trimmed down to just two.

As a side note I'd like to give some Credit to: Bryant Molirse or Mechatalk.net for helping me with the gold recolor of these parts.

Well, the only part I can't seem to see any gundam reference is the wing now you mentioned it. seems like something from IS. Which part were you referring to?

close, but no cigar......
but you're right , it IS the wing part, but it's the binder for the PTX-014-03C Arblade Custom from the super robot wars series

Yeah, somewhat they're not as flexible as Amatu's, and by that I mean they can't fold out like the Gold Frame's can, they can only fold up on that one axis so they either hold like at the angle of a shoulder shield or they joint up to look like the wings on any of the flight type striker packs, at least that's how I envisioned it working, if you understand how I mean, I'm not describing it well I'm sure.

The wings are not flexible, eh. I imagined that it files like Strike Noir, and because the wings are bladed, I thought it would look like BuCue/Gaia when striking

It's more like Liger Zero, or a Blade Liger, the wings can extend to be used as cutting blades that because of their position will always target around the head of an enemy MS because disarming and all of that.

Cagalli's gundams = Based off of Kira's gundams, but vastly improved.

Strike Rouge was based of off strike, and the IWSP was teh shits (too bad Cags never got to use it! She would have destroyed the sky with that!)
The Akatsuki was also based off of the Strike
and this seems to be based of off the freedoms.
nice

wow, u amaze me with your knowledge of gundams! :salute: you'd make a great pilot! :giggle: :D & with this MS, Cagalli would hopefully be able to defend her country better in the future...and hopefully would get lots of training from Kira to become a better pilot too! Anyways, great equipment design, colouring and everything else!!! :w00t: :heart:
