The G-Bull was a ground combat configuration of the RX-78-2 Gundam and its support unit, the G-Fighter. In this form, the top section of the Gundam and the FF-X7 Core Fighter were docked with the A-Parts of the G-Fighter. In this form, the G-Fighter’s beam cannons reversed position to face forward. The G-Bull was propelled by the A-Parts’ tank treads. The G-Bull could also be configured in an alternate form known as the G-Bull Easy.
