The modular design of the MSA-0011 S Gundam allowed Anaheim Electronics to develop countless variation plans. Variations based on the standard S Gundam were classified as the 100 series, while those based on the [Ext] and [Bst] forms were classified as the 200 series and 300 series respectively. Most of these variations were never actually built or tested, and were ultimately just paper plans. One such example was Plan 303E, also known as the Deep Striker. As its number suggested, this variation of the S Gundam was based on the booster-equipped [Bst] version. Its objective was to penetrate enemy territory at high speeds and then use its immense firepower to destroy major targets such as bases and space fleets. The platform on its back carried a long-range disk radome and a huge mega particle cannon of the same type used by Argama class and Irish class space warships. Its crew consisted of a pilot and a radar operator, who were protected by two I-field generators similar to that of the MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam. The Deep Striker was also equipped with a beam smartgun, two improved beam cannons, an additional generator in its waist armor, and a multi-sensor pod that took the place of its left arm and gave it enemy search capabilities comparable to those of an EWAC mobile suit. Due to its heavy equipment, the Deep Striker had twice the weight of the original [Bst] version. Although the conformal packs attached to its leg booster units each included an extra thruster, as well as more energy supply connection points, the machine’s total acceleration was reduced by about 30 percent. However, the attachment of extra propellant tanks gave it a far greater operating time, and these tanks could be discarded once emptied in order to reduce the machine’s dead weight.
