A small single-seat mecha, the lightly-armed Gadakka was mainly used for reconnaissance and army co-operation. Its' long legs enabled it to leap large distances but were something of a weak spot - a skilled soldier could destroy them. The type could be carried in pairs by the Kopola.
As the attack on Solo was one of the few land campaigns undertaken by the Buff Clan during their conflict with the colonists, Gadakkas were rarely seen afterwards - though a small number were used by Gije's commando force on Kyaral.
The Gadakka was presumably superseded by the Jongu type.
