The FA-78-3 Full Armor Gundam 7th was the armor-equipped space combat version of the RX-78-7 Gundam 7th. Unlike the previous FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam, the Full Armor Gundam 7th was able to fight without any drop in performance. This is accomplished with the addition of sub generators and propellant tanks in the Full Armor components. The emphasis of the Full Armor components was offensive power rather than defensive. This was reflected in the armaments, which included vulcan guns, beam sabers, hand beam guns and a beam shot cannon. The Full Armor Gundam 7th’s armaments and armor could be further expanded with the HFA-78-3 Heavy Armed FA Gundam. The Gundam 7th was not completed until after the end of the One Year War. In UC 0081, the suit was assigned to Hugues Courand, a pilot with the Phantom Sweeper unit that was tasked with hunting down the Zeon remnant group known as the Invisible Knights.
