Technical and Historical Notes

Following its success during the Cosmo Babylonia Foundation War, the F91 Gundam F91 was given a limited mass production run by the Earth Federation Forces. One such unit was piloted by Harrison Madin, the ace pilot known as the Blue Flash; this was actually his second F91, as his first was irreparably damaged during the Jovian War in UC 0133 when he faced off against Kincade Nau’s XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai. During the events of Operation Zeus’ Wrath, Harrison was unable to help the Crossbone Vanguard because the EFF chose not to pursue the matter any further following the destruction of Callisto’s Shadow’s Earth attack team. Thus, Harrison gave his F91 to Mitchell Derek Nar, one of the F99 Record Breaker test pilots, to fight in his place. Because cost was no longer an issue, some of the functions that were removed for mass production were restored, meaning this F91’s performance was close to the original prototype’s.
