Technology & Combat Characteristics
While it was a successsful plan, the MSZ-010S Enhanced ZZ Gundam was not a permanent fix to MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam's structural issue. On that note, Anaheim Electronics constructed a Full Armor System for the Enhanced ZZ Gundam, adding on many missile launchers and an extra beam cannon. It also added extra armor with anti-beam coating, making it able to withstand even the most powerful of beam attacks for at least 3 seconds.
Like its original progenitor, the Full Armor ZZ Gundam is used as an assault mobile suit, able to destroy a large number of mobile suits in a matter of seconds. The additional missile launchers allow the Full Armor ZZ Gundam to bombard its target with a missile volley, giving it even more attack power.
While the Full Armor upgrade solved many of the flaws of the previous MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam, a new flaw was introduced in the form of the armor's restrictive bulk, which prohibited the transformation system. In order to transform into its G-Fortress mode, the ZZ Gundam would need to entirely shed off the Full Armor parts, returning to its weaker MSZ-010S Enhanced ZZ Gundam form.
In Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden, the Full Armor ZZ Gundam was still able to transform into G-Fortress mode through unknown means. In later games, however, the Full Armor equipment locked the unit's transformation ability as in the show.
The Full Armor ZZ Gundam retains the regular armaments of the old ZZ Gundam, while adding some new ones.
- Missile Launchers
- The Full Armor package gives the Enhanced ZZ Gundam a series of missile launchers mounted all over its body. This enables the Full Armor ZZ Gundam to bombard targets in combat. Spraying missiles were also mounted on the Full Armor ZZ Gundam, mainly for distraction purposes and countering I-Fields.
- Hyper Mega Cannon
- A new addition to the Full Armor package, the Hyper Mega Cannon is a powerful upgrade to the original ZZ Gundam's powerful (but energy draining) High Mega Cannon.
Though the MSZ-010S Enhanced ZZ Gundam helped to improve the structural weakness of the original ZZ Gundam, it was not a permanent fix and was only launched once. On that note, Anaheim Electronics constructed a Full Armor System for the Enhanced ZZ Gundam, adding on many missile launchers and an extra beam cannon. Even though the hulking new armament was powerful, it could only be used in mobile suit mode, forcing Judau to purge the Full Armor parts in order to transform into the G-Fortress. During the final battle of the internal conflict within Neo Zeon, Full Armor ZZ launched into battle for the first and only time. Although it did not make many major contributions, it was able to match off with Puru Two's Queen Mansa (being able to withstand its powerful beam attack), before Glemy Toto was sniped down by Roux Louka in her Zeta Gundam.
