Following the Earth Federation Forces’ battle with the Mars Zeon Oldsmobile Army in UC 0120, the remains of the stolen-and-refurbished OMS-90R Gundam F90 Mars Independent Zeon Forces Version were recovered by the EFF and sent back to SNRI to be rebuilt. The mobile suit was reconstructed into the improved Gundam F90II, returning to the hardpoint-laden, optional mission pack versatility of the original F90 Gundam F90. Even in its basic configuration, the F90II still boasted a considerable improvement in terms of reactor power and performance with additional speed and maneuverability. The F90II also served as the first testbed for the revolutionary new bio-computer system, a derivative of the classic psycommu system that relayed tactical data, sensor system input and piloting control advice directly to into the pilot’s brain. This system, which not only allowed a new pilot to more easily adapt to the Gundam F90II, but also made for faster pilot decisiveness and reaction time, was later incorporated into the F91 Gundam F91.
