Although performing superbly as a close combat mobile suit, the LM312V04 Victory Gundam was somewhat lacking in terms of heavy firepower, being only armed with standard weapons like vulcan guns, beam sabers and a beam rifle. As a continuation of its Victory Project, the League Militaire developed a modification for the standard Victory Gundam Core Fighter that worked as a larger backpack for the mobile suit. This system, called the SD-VB03A Overhang Pack, mounted a pair of high-powered beam overhang cannons, thus turning this upgraded LM312V04+SD-VB03A Victory Dash Gundam into an excellent fire support unit. In addition to a higher output reactor to power the overhang cannons, the Overhang Pack also mounted a set of more powerful thrusters and additional verniers to help the mobile suit overcome the Pack’s additional weight. For additional heavy firepower, the V-Dash Gundam could also carry a large mega beam rifle capable of delivering high-powered shots at extremely long ranges. In an emergency, the mega beam rifle could be dropped and the overhang cannons ejected if they were damaged or no longer needed. All of these upgrades helped to make the V-Dash Gundam a much more versatile mobile suit, capable of filling a wider variety of mission roles.
