The FFB-7Bst Jet Core Booster II was an atmospheric fighter developed by the Earth Federation Forces and based on the FF-X7Bst Core Booster. Unlike the Core Booster, which combined an FF-X7 Core Fighter with a booster module, the Jet Core Booster II was constructed as a single unit. The Jet Core Booster II’s armaments included vulcan guns and anti-ground bombs and missiles. The Jet Core Booster II could function as both an air fighter and bomber. In November UC 0079, multiple Jet Core Booster II fighters conducted a bombing campaign over a secret Zeon mountain base in Southeast Asia. As of UC 0081, the Jet Core Booster II remained in service.
