Another product of Anaheim Electronics’ Silhouette Formula Project launched in UC 0123, the RGM-111 Hardygun visually resembled the F70 Cannon Gundam developed by the Earth Federation Forces’ Strategic Naval Research Institute. In terms of design and performance, however, the Hardygun was more of a cross between the RGM-109 Heavygun and the F71 G-Cannon. Incorporating stolen SNRI technology, Anaheim built the Hardygun with a high output reactor to power its beam weapons and a hardpoint system similar to that used on the F90 Gundam F90 series to more easily facilitate the changing of weapons loadouts.
