Technical and Historical Notes

 

The G-Armor was a combined form of the RX-78-2 Gundam and the G-Fighter support unit. In this configuration, the Gundam was contained within the A- and B-Parts, with only a portion of its pelvis exposed. The G-Armor's weight and slow movement made it inadequate for fighting fast-moving ground targets. To provide the Gundam with additional protection, the White Base's engineers added an extra shield, thus covering both of the mobile suit's arms. The G-Armor could also function independently as a fighter or as a sub-flight unit for the Gundam, similar to the Principality of Zeon's Dodai YS. Although initially used exclusively by the RX-78-2, the EFF produced more G-Fighters for use with other mobile suits.
