Technical and Historical Notes

One of several F90II Gundam F90II optional armament variations developed by the Earth Federation Forces’ SNRI during the early UC 0120s, the F90II-L Gundam F90II L-Type (Long Range)) was designed to operate as an extreme-range sniper unit. To carry out this task, the L-Type was armed with a long rifle, which could fire both solid shell ammunition and mega particle beams, with the rifle fed by an ammo clip and a e-pac for each respective firing mode. A special external targeting sensor unit was also provided, which, when deployed over the Gundam’s usual main sensors, allowed the L-Type to accurately acquire and hit targets up to 100 kilometers away in shell-firing mode or even farther in beam-firing mode. The standard and targeting sensors were also aided by a powerful thermoscope mounted on the left shoulder, which helped the Gundam to track otherwise hidden targets by following their heat signatures.
