The F-71 G-Cannon Powered Weapon Type (also known as the F71 G-Cannon Full Equipment Type) is a variation of F71 G-Cannon mobile suit. It's designed by Kunio Okawara as part of F91-MSV.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Utilizing the weapons system derived from the F90 Gundam Formula 90's mission pack, G-Cannon can be armed with large variety of equipments. Among these configurations, the Powered Weapon Type featuring the most complex weapon system.

The shoulder machine cannons used by standard G-Cannon are removed. In their place, G-Cannon is now armed with a twin beam cannon and a dual anti-air missile as well as sets of a sophisticated anti-air guidance system. The dual beam guns on both arms have also been replaced by a 2-barrel railgun and a "gun unit" twin grenade launcher. To counter the increase weight of these new armaments, the G-Cannon also has a "booster pack" thruster on each calf.


  • Vulcan Gun
A standard armament of the mobile suits that are descended from the Earth Federation Forces's RX series is a pair of head mounted 60mm vulcan guns. These shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire but have little power and can't damage the thick armor of a mobile suit, though it can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. The weapons are ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles, small land vehicles, and attack helicopters.
  • Beam Saber
Beam saber emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The F71 G-Cannon is equipped with two beam sabers for melee combat. The beam sabers are stored in recharge racks when not in use.
