The FA-178 Full Armor Gundam Mk-II is a proposed upgrade to the original RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. It is featured in Z-MSV (Zeta Gundam Mobile Suit Variations).

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Similar to how the failed FA-78-1 Gundam Full Armor Type was meant to enhance the offensive capabilities of the original RX-78-2 Gundam, the Full Armor pack for the Mk-II was meant to add greater offensive and defensive capabilities. The new armaments included 1 head mounted Vulcan pod, Grenade Launchers on it's forearm, and a 2-barrel Beam Cannon with an attached Grenade Launcher.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Pod
Although the Mk-II didn't mount the standard vulcan guns on the head, it is able to be outfitted with a 60mm 2-barrel vulcan pod on its head, capable of carrying a total of 1400 rounds. The vulcan guns are housed in the left side with two firing ports, while the right side functions as a balancer and magazine. This optional weapon was developed because installation space in the head unit could not be reserved for mounting the vulcan guns.
  • Grenade Launcher
Two Grenade Launchers are built into the mobile suit's left forearm.
  • 2-barrel Beam Cannon
Unlike the normal Mk-II which carried a beam rifle, the Full Armor Gundam Mk-II had a more powerful 2-barrel beam cannon attached to it's right forearm.
  • Grenade Launcher
For extra firepower, another Grenade Launcher is built into the Beam Cannon.

History

While the Full Armor pack did increase the Mk-ll's offensive and defensive capabilities, the FXA-05D G-Defenser however had a more well rounded armament and did not weigh down the Mk-II in combat, so development was focused towards the G-Defenser and the Full Armor pack was never used.
