Early during the Gryps War, the AEUG’s newly captured RX-178 Gundam Mk-II mobile suit was soon outclassed by new transformable mobile suits/mobile armor being developed by their Titans enemies. Although fairly impressive for its innovative new movable frame construction, the Mk-II soon found itself left behind in terms of mobility, armor and firepower. To compensate for these shortcomings, Anaheim Electronics developed a new weapons platform to enhance the Mk-II’s performance. Called the FXA-05D G-Defenser, this new space fighter-like unit was capable of docking with the Mk-II into the more powerful RX-178+FXA-05D Super Gundam. Control of the G-Defenser’s main body and weapons were transferred to the Mk-II’s pilot, while the G-Defenser’s cockpit was detached from its main body, allowing the G-Defenser to continue operating in the field in a Core Fighter-like unit. Only one G-Defenser unit was constructed and was placed in the hands of feisty AEUG pilot Katz Kobayashi. The G-Defenser and its Core Fighter were both destroyed at the end of the Gryps War in early UC 0088, but Anaheim eventually developed a replacement vehicle to assist the Mk-II: the FXA-08R Mega Rider.
