Technology & Combat Characteristics

Heavily armed and armored, the FA-78 Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt sector use) combines heavy firepower and durability with high manoeuvrability from the added backpack. Many additional equipment are added to enhance its combat performance, including external propellant tanks and missile pods. Other equipment includes four shields and rubber joint cover to protect the suit body from asteroid debris, its main weapon include a twin barrel beam rifle, a beam cannon, cluster missile launcher located in the backpack, a handheld missile pod, and missile launchers around part of the body. An added armor, like the one from RX-78NT1, could be detached during emergency to conserve thruster fuel use, during the battle in Thunderbolt Sector both the shield and added armor are shown able to withstand direct fire from 120mm Zaku machine gun and direct bazooka fire. The FA-78 lacked head vulcans, and is instead equipped with an added sensor camera, capable of replacing the main cameras in the eyes should they be damaged.

The Full Armor Gundam is capable of detaching its backpack and the added armor, in this mode, the suit has an emergency beam saber located near the hardpoint of its backpack as a last resort weapon.
