Possibly the ancestor of all of SNRI’s small-scale mobile suits, the F90 Gundam F90 was pulled out of storage to serve as pilot instructor Minoru Suzuki’s personal machine during the operation to stop the Jupiter Empire’s colony laser Zeus’ Thunderbolt. It was equipped with the Intercept Unit, giving it exceptional mobility, and was additionally given a shot lancer armed with nuclear warheads. Though over 10 years old by this point, the F90I was tuned to its fullest limit in order to match up with current technology, and thus its performance was on par with contemporary machines.
