The FA-78-2 Heavy Gundam (Unit 2) is the successor unit of the FA-78-2 Heavy Gundam. It first appeared as a part of MSV-R line.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The FA-78-2 Heavy Gundam (Unit 2) still retains the same armaments as the original Heavy Gundam. It is equipped with a shoulder-mounted Shoulder Beam Cannon and a beam saber over the opposite shoulder for use in close combat situations. The Heavy Gundam (Unit 2) is also equipped with several armaments not featured on the original Heavy Gundam which are a beam rifle, a hyper bazooka, and a shield.

When the Heavy Gundam was assigned to Ingrid 0 it did not have a core block system. As its centerpiece, there was enough space to equip a modified Bio-Sensor using Zeon technology and adjusted to her abilities.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Bio-Sensor
A technological variant of the Psycommu system developed by Anaheim Electronics. Although its full capabilities are unknown, its primary purpose is to allow a Newtype pilot to more easily interface with his mobile suit via mental commands. The bio-sensor could also have a rather surprising side effect when the pilot was mentally and emotionally focused enough (usually when angry or upset) to cause the bio-sensor to amplify the power, speed, and strength of the mobile suit for a short period of time.

History

Performance tests with Unit 2 were carried out from July to August of U.C. 0081. While the third Heavy Gundam unit was lost in an atmospheric entry test, the two remaining machines were used in short-term data collection operations by experimental units.

In U.C. 0089, a modified FA-78-2 Heavy Gundam was assigned to Ingrid 0 customized in the same color pattern as Zeon's ace pilot Johnny Ridden. It was first seen deployed in Jaburo fighting against Led Wayline piloting in Johnny Ridden's MS-14B Gelgoog High Mobility Type.
