In preparation for the final battle against Neo Zeon in UC 0096, Banagher Links’ friend (and mobile suit fanatic) Takuya Irei conceived the plan for the RX-0 Full Armor Unicorn Gundam. With assistance from Anaheim Electronics engineer Aaron Terzieff, the Unicorn Gundam was loaded with every type of equipment available on the Nahel Argama. Two external propellant tanks were attached to extend the suit’s operating time. Despite the “Full Armor” moniker, this configuration was mainly comprised of additional armaments, which included two hyper bazookas, three shields, six beam Gatling guns and multiple missile and grenade launchers. Despite the extra equipment, the suit was still capable of transforming into Destroy mode unencumbered.
