The RX-93-v2 Hi-v Gundam was an improved version of the RX-93 v Gundam used by Londo Bell ace pilot Amuro Ray during the Second Neo Zeon War in UC 0093. The original v Gundam was manufactured by Anaheim Electronics, which continued development after delivery of the mobile suit to Londo Bell. The upgraded Hi-v Gundam featured improved avionics and armaments compared to the original version. Half of the remote-controlled fin funnels were moved to the other side of the backpack, which improved the suit’s balance and center of gravity. The Hi-v Gundam could also mount two optional propellant units that could be ejected upon depletion. The fin funnels were also updated to have longer operational time before needing to recharge. The Hi-v Gundam could also utilize the powerful hyper mega bazooka launcher in place of its standard beam rifle.
