Technical and Historical Notes

 

The FF-X7 Core Fighter is an integral part of the Earth Federation Forces' "Project V," forming an interchangeable cockpit block for the RX-78-2 Gundam, RX-77-2 Guncannon and RX-75-4 Guntank. Developed by the Hervic Company, which also developed the older FF-6 TIN Cod and FF-S3 Saberfish fighters, the Core Fighter's primary purpose is to protect the data from the learning computer system of the Gundam, serving as an escape vehicle in the advent of the mobile suit being disable or destroyed. The Core Fighter is armed to protect its data and pilot, with four 25mm machine guns mounted in the nose, and two small missile launchers mounted on the fuselage. The Core Fighter concept is used in many later suits and can be seen as late as UC 0153 in the League Militaire's LM312V04 Victory Gundam.
