Technology & Combat Characteristics
The first suit of the Strategic Naval Research Institute's "Formula Project." The F90 Gundam F90 was a down scaled mobile suit, standing at only 14.8 meters compared to the RX-78-2 Gundam, which stood at 18 meters. Although the F90 was given a standard armament of a beam rifle, two beam sabers, and a solid shield the unit was also given numerous hardpoints. These hardpoints allowed the F90 to take on external equipment for various roles in combat. The Gundam could be equipped with as many as 26 different configurations, meaning the F90 could be equipped for anything from heavy assault and support fire to underwater combat and atmospheric reentry. The configurations made the F90 one of the most versatile mobile suits of its time.

Following the Neo-Zeon wars, a time of relative peace began for the Earth sphere, without any major spacenoid uprising. Nevertheless, the Earth Federation Forces decided to maintain their military strength by creating newer mobile suits, designed for this new age. Although Anaheim Electronics had a virtual monopoly for several decades when it came to mobile suit production, the EFF created its own in-house development thinktank, which was called the Strategic Naval Research Institute (SNRI). This organization was tasked with the duty to create new scaled-down mobile suits, which were not only smaller and more lightweight but also mounted the newest weaponry and technology to cope with different combat situations and missions.
SNRI eventually started this project under the name "Formula Project", which resulted in the creation of the F90 Gundam F90. Two models of this suit were created and both were tested by the EFF's 13th Experimental Squadron. During testing a remnant Zeon force, calling themselves the "Oldsmobile Army", made its appearance at this time. They stole the F90 Unit 2 and carried it away to their base on Mars where it was reconfigured into the OMS-90R Gundam F90.
The Earth Federation reassigned the 13th Experimental Squadron, along with Unit 1, as the 13th Autonomous Fleet and was launched to Mars in order to destroy the Oldsmobile Army. On the surface of Mars the F90 Unit 1 would combat Oldsmobile mobile suits around Olympus Mons using equipment from several of its combat packages, primarily its Assault, Destroid, and Support packages. Within the Zeon's Oldsmobile base inside Mount Olympus Unit 1/Def Stallion engaged the OMS-90R Gundam F90 piloted by Bosch. Both Units were heavily damaged, but in a final move reminiscent of the final battle between the RX-78-2 Gundam and the MSN-02 Zeong, Unit 1 defeated Unit 2. The remains of both machines were retrieved and Unit 2 was rebuilt into the F90II Gundam F90II.
SNRI continued their Formula Project, which resulted in the creation of the more advanced and powerful F91 Gundam F91.
