The F91 Gundam F91 Back Cannon Type was a variation on the standard F91 Gundam F91. The Back Cannon Type featured different shoulder armor than the regular Gundam F91 and included four radiator fins in each shoulder rather than three. It also replaced the Gundam F91’s pair of Variable Speed Beam Rifles (VSBR) with a pair of 4-barrel beam Gatlings that each mounted a missile launcher carrying anti-ship missiles.
