One of several powered up variants of the basic LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam, the League Militaire’s LM314V23 Victory 2 Buster Gundam retained the same armament as the basic model, while sporting a tremendous increase in firepower. This additional firepower came in the form of a mega beam cannon for high-powered, long-range shots, a spray beam pod for taking down several enemies or incoming missiles at closer ranges, and six micro-missile launchers. Although the extra equipment increased the V2’s weight and caused a minor decrease in speed and performance, the V2 Buster was still quite a powerful mobile suit, operating effectively as a medium- to long-range fire support unit in this form.
