Technical and Historical Notes

 

One of the pinnacles of the somewhat underhanded "Silhouette Formula Project" conducted by Anaheim Electronics in UC 0123 is the RX-99 (AFX-9000) Neo Gundam, which is acquired for use by the Earth Federation Forces. The Neo Gundam combines the best of new and old technologies, incorporating the advanced new weapons technology developed by the Strategic Naval Research Institute's "Formula Project." The Neo Gundam is armed with a Generative Beam Rifle Device, or "G-BRD" for short, which operates in a fashion similar to a Variable Speed Beam Rifle (VSBR) but is completely hand-carried and powered by its own built-in reactor rather than connected directly to the mobile suit's reactor. The Neo Gundam also uses the classic "Core Block System" made famous by the original RX-78-2 Gundam and other early Federation prototypes, thus increasing the survivability of the pilot. The G-BRD also mounts rocket thrusters, and can be attached to the Neo Gundam's Core Fighter to operate like a booster. This combination of advanced weaponry and a Core Fighter make the Neo Gundam one of the better, more well-rounded prototype mobile suits to be produced at the time. Only two Neo Gundams are produced: Unit 1 is painted in a black color scheme, while Unit 2 is painted in a more traditional white color. The two Neo Gundams are put on the Federation Forces Londo Bell ship Bladewood, as part of the 302nd fleet. Tokio Randall boards the Ajax and eventually steals the Neo Gundam Unit 2. Both units are destroyed in a fight, with only the Core Fighter of Unit 2 and Tokio surviving.
