Despite its high power and performance, the AEUG’s MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam suffered from one critical flaw: its complicated construction and transformation systems made it somewhat structurally weak. During the last days of the First Neo Zeon War, the ZZ Gundam received some minor improvements in armor and armaments in the form of the MSZ-010S Enhanced ZZ Gundam, but still suffered from its weak build. A stopgap measure was introduced, not only giving the Enhanced ZZ a temporary fix for the problem, but also a significant boost in armor protection and weaponry. Based on the earlier FA-010A FAZZ, this form was called the FA-010S Full Armor ZZ Gundam, and it was comprised of the Enhanced ZZ Gundam with lots of heavy external armor components – many containing missile launchers, as well as a powerful hyper mega cannon on the torso armor component. Now more well protected from enemy fire that could easily deliver a critical blow to its structure, the Full Armor ZZ could continue to bring its tremendous power into the battlefield – and then some. The only drawback to the Full Armor components was that they were fixed around the Enhanced ZZ Gundam in mobile suit mode only, and thus the Full Armor ZZ couldn’t transform into G-Fortress mode without first ejecting the extra armor and weapons.
