One of many F90 Gundam F90 optional armament variations developed by the Earth Federation Forces’ SNRI during the early UC 0120s, the F90P Gundam F90 P-Type (Plunge) was designed to allow a normally spaceborne mobile suit the ability to quickly re-enter Earth’s atmosphere and perform aerial combat. The P-Type’s entire body was equipped with various packs which mounted additional thrusters and aerodynamic control surfaces to facilitate flight in its fighter mode. The lifting body surfaces mounted on the forearms not only served as the fighter mode’s wings, but also served as a shield to protect the Gundam during re-entry from space, and they also acted as shields for the mobile suit mode. Due to its configuration and the fact that the P-Type’s hardpoints were mostly used to carry the fighter mode equipment, the P-Type was very lightly armed, mounting only the fixed vulcan guns in the head and a beam cannon on the left shoulder that could also be used in fighter mode.
