Technical and Historical Notes

 

During its attempts to conquer the Earth, the first Neo Zeon movement anticipates that a full-scale invasion would be impossible. Therefore, several alternate plans are developed to subjugate the Earth Federation's leadership. Including an attempted capture of the Federation Senate and a colony drop; one plan is for a nuclear attack. To carry out this plan, Axis produces the tactical use mobile suit AMX-017 Gigantic. Some researchers suspect that the Gigantic's design borrows heavily from the RX-78GP02A Gundam GP02A Physalis, but this has yet to be confirmed. What can be said is that the Gigantic has many features in common with the Physalis. Its unique, mushroom-like body structure is reinforced for shock absorption and features strong heat proofing. In order to facilitate its escape from the inevitable blast radius, the Gigantic features powerful thrusters all over its body. Though at least one test unit is produced, a Neo Zeon attack to capture Luna II's atomic stockpile results in failure. Without the means to carry out its plan, the Gigantic's production is shelved.
