Technical and Historical Notes

 

The RCX-76-02 Guncannon First Type is developed by the Earth Federation Forces as the successor to the RTX-65 Guntank Early Type. Despite its humanoid shape, the Guncannon is given the same main battle tank (MBT) classification as the Guntank. The Guncannon's humanoid design mirrors similar developments within Zeon. The Guncannon is intended to be more versatile than the Guntank, and its three-fingered manipulators can be changed with different armaments depending on the mission. Units used by Erdush's Iron Cavalry Squadron are equipped with a low-recoil cannon, two vulcan guns, a Gatling gun and rifle. In UC 0078, the Iron Cavalry Squadron engages Zeon in history's first mobile suit battle at Mare Smythii on the lunar surface. The Iron Cavalry Squadron has a disastrous showing against Zeon's MS-05 Zaku I. As a result, developer Tem Ray pushes the EFF to allow him to develop the RX-78-2 Gundam.
