The RX-77AQ Guncannon Aqua was an amphibious variant of the RX-77 Guncannon created by the Earth Federation Forces. The RX-77AQ’s backpack, chest and knees were fitted with hydrojet thrusters for underwater propulsions. Its paint scheme was changed to blue to allow for better camouflage in underwater settings. The suit’s armaments were also modified for underwater combat, with its namesake cannons being swapped out for torpedo launchers. The RX-77AQ also mounted a pair of beam sabers, vulcan guns and a specialized needle gun. In August UC 0080, pilot Bianca Carlyle of the assault carrier Spartan engaged a Zeon remnant MSM-03 Gogg at Antarctica. The Guncannon Aqua was severely damaged during the battle, necessitating its disassembly to conduct repairs.
