During the One Year War, the Earth Federation Forces developed the FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam and its FSWS (Full-armor System and Weapon System) as an upgrade to the RX-78-2 Gundam. One plan under consideration was to apply the FSWS concept to the RX-78NT-1 Gundam NT-1 Alex. Under this plan, the Gundam Alex was equipped with armor and weapons similar to the FA-78-1, including a twin beam cannon, a rocket launcher and missiles. However, the Gundam Alex was instead equipped with ejectable Chobham armor and heavily damaged in combat on Side 6 near the war’s end. Four years later, an all red reproduction of the Full Armor Alex was used by the terrorist group True Federal.
