A high-speed assault version of the MSA-0011 S Gundam. In this form, the S Gundam was equipped with four of the enhanced backpack units used by the MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam. Two of these booster units were mounted on its back, and the other two were attached to an adapter unit that took the place of the mobile suit’s lower body, or B parts. Although it had no legs, the S Gundam could use its tail stabilator and shoulder wing units for AMBAC maneuvering, giving it the same kind of attitude control abilities as a humanoid mobile suit and making stable firing possible even at high speeds. Its four booster units gave this form of the S Gundam tremendous mobility. Even at full weight, it had a maximum acceleration of almost 10G, putting it in the same class as the mobile armors used by the Principality of Zeon and enabling the S Gundam to fly under its own power to the Moon from low Earth orbit. However, this high performance placed a great strain on its pilot, and its operating time was limited by its relatively small propellant capacity. This configuration of the S Gundam was used only once during the Pezun Rebellion. On March 1, UC 0088, pilot Ryo Roots used this form to break through the defensive net around the asteroid base Pezun and destroy the power satellite SOL 7804, thus cutting off the power supply of the New Desides forces.
