GUTS Wing (ガッツウイング Gattsu Wingu) are the fighter jets developed by the TPC and its branches: GUTS, Super GUTS, and Black Buster Corps.

History

Ultraman Tiga

When the TPC were first introduced, there were two GUTS Wing models: GUTS Wing 1 and GUTS Wing 2 with their main usages were for SAR (Search and Rescue). However, with various threats such as monsters and alien invaders arose as depicted by the Ultra-Ancient Civilization prophecy, GUTS were converted from rescue team to attack team as GUTS Wing 1 and 2 modified with armaments. As the TPC branches expanded to worldwide, the GUTS Wings were mass-produced and modified to combat monsters.

Ultraman Dyna

In 2017, exactly seven years after Tiga's battle with Gatanothor, more GUTS Wings deployed in various TPC Bases on each planets in the Solar System in response to the Neo Frontier Era. Also, an even more advanced mecha, GUTS Eagle was created, rivaling the GUTS Wing models.

Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga

A GUTS Wing was piloted by then TPC intelligence officer Mitsukuni Shizuma 30 years before the start of the series. He flew into a time-space portal and was transported into Trigger's universe. At one point, that same GUTS Wing was modified to serve as a base for the GUTS Falcon's development. 6 years before the start of the series, the aircraft was deployed against Deathdrago and blew off its right horn. In the present day, Mitsukuni used the GUTS Wing against a Gargorgon and was able to blind her eye so Ultraman Trigger could defeat the monster.

GUTS Wing alongside GUTS Falcon was deployed again to assist Ultraman Trigger and Trigger Dark during the final battle against Megalothor/Carmeara. It rapidly fired its weapon at the Ruler of Shadows and saved Trigger Dark as he was strangled by Dark Megalo Tentacles.

Trivia

  • The model and logo for this GUTS Wing is based on the ones used in the Tiga era.

The jet can also operate in outer space. In later development stages, the Wing 1 was used as a base for several variants.

The jet itself is modeled after a squid.[2]

In the Neo Frontier Era, the EX-J was mass produced and several could be seen at the TPC West Asia Branch. One was piloted by Munakata to fight against Neo Geomos.
