Technical and Historical Notes

 

After tests were completed on the RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type, the Earth Federation Forces prepared the RGM-79 GM for mass production. The RX-78-01[FSD] Gundam FSD (Full-Scale Development) was created to enhance the armaments and systems of the Gundam Local Type. The Gundam FSD shared parts with the Gundam Local Type, but the unit was redesigned for mass production and had higher basic capabilities than its predecessor. The Gundam FSD’s armaments included a Gatling gun, machine gun, two beam sabers and a shield. Two units participated in combat at the EFF’s Jaburo headquarters, and their combat data was used by the RX Plan development team, which eventually created the Full-armor System and Weapon System (FSWS) seen in units like the FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam.
