Technical and Historical Notes

 

The third unit in the Gundam F90 series built by the Earth Federation Forces' Strategic Naval Research Institute is the F90IIIY Cluster Gundam (also informally known as the "F90 Third"). The Cluster Gundam is radically different from previous F90 units in that it incorporates a Core Block System for its cockpit and backpack, thus creating a greater chance of survival for the pilot. Like its other F90 predecessors, the Cluster Gundam features hardpoints located all over its body for externally mounting optional "mission pack" equipment and weapons as required. Completed at the SNRI's facility in the Frontier I Colony, the Cluster Gundam sees some brief field action in March UC 0123 during an escape from that colony, which had just been conquered by the Crossbone Vanguard.
