The FXA-00 Flying Armor was a custom sub-flight system created by Anaheim Electronics for the AEUG’s RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. Its shape was based on the waverider mode created by Mk-II pilot Kamille Bidan in his conceptual design for the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam. Aside from functioning as a sub-flight system for Earth-based flight, the Flying Armor also doubled as an atmospheric re-entry system. In May UC 0087, Kamille used the Flying Armor as part of the AEUG’s large-scale operation to attack the Titans’ Jaburo base on Earth. The Flying Armor was still in service when Elle Vianno took over as the Mk-II’s pilot in UC 0088 during the First Neo Zeon War.
