Gunhed 507 (ガンヘッド,   Ganheddo Faibu Zero Sebun) is a mecha created by Toho which appears in the 1989 Toho tokusatsu film, Gunhed.

Name[edit | edit source]

The name of the Gunhed series of machines, and by extension Gunhed 507, is an acronym for Gun Unit Heavy Elimination Device. The mech is sometimes described as simply Gunhed or GUNHED (ガンヘッド,   Ganheddo), though its full designation is Gunhed 507, distinguishing it from the 508 model also seen in Gunhed.

Gunhed 507's transformations are denoted as Standing Mode (直立 (スタンディング)モード,   Sutandingu Mōdo),[2][3] Tank Mode (戦車 (タンク)モード,   Tanku Mōdo),[2][3] and Pid Mode (坑道モード,   Kōdō Mōdo, lit. Tunnel Mode).[2]
