Technical and Historical Notes

 

Early during the Gryps Conflict, the AEUG's newly-captured RX-178 Gundam Mark II mobile suit is quickly outclassed by new variable-form mobile suits/mobile armor being developed by their Titans enemies. Although fairly impressive for its innovative new "movable frame" construction, the Mark II soon finds itself left behind in terms of mobility, armor and firepower. To compensate for these shortcomings, Anaheim Electronics develops a new weapons platform to enhance the Mark II's performance. Called the FXA-05D G-Defenser, this new space fighter-like unit is capable of docking with the Mark II. During cruise/flight mode, this form is called the G-Flyer. However, the Mark II can assume full control of the G-Defenser's weapons as a mobile suit, becoming what is commonly called the RX-178+FXA-05D Super Gundam. The Super Gundam sports an approximately 20% increase in speed/acceleration over the stand-alone Mark II, as well as providing the benefit of additional (and more effective) gundarium armor and the powerful long rifle and missile pods. These improvements allow the Super Gundam to operate on a more equal footing with the high-performance variable mobile suits being fielded by the Titans at the time.
