One of several F90II Gundam F90II optional armament variations developed by the Earth Federation Forces’ SNRI during the early UC 0120s, the F90II-I Gundam F90II I-Type (Intercept) was designed to not only provide the F90II with additional speed and mobility in space, but also to allow the mobile suit to safely re-enter Earth’s atmosphere and perform aerial combat. This was achieved with the aid of a pair of supplemental booster packs mounted on the legs, as well as a large, hand-carried flight shield that also mounted additional rocket thrusters and, when docked with the Gundam, acted as both a waverider-like re-entry shield and a winged lifting body. The I-Type was also armed with a large beam lancer, a beam weapon equivalent of the shot lancer melee weapon developed by the Crossbone Vanguard.
