Technical and Historical Notes

 

Early during the Gryps Conflict, the AEUG's newly-captured RX-178 Gundam Mk-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 Mk-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 Mk-II's performance. Called the FXA-05D G-Defenser, this new space fighter-like unit is capable of docking with the Mk-II. During cruise/flight mode, this form is called the G-Flyer. However, the Mk-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 Mk-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.
