The FXA-07GB Neo Core Fighter is a fighter from Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ.
Technology and Combat Characteristics
The FXA-07GB Neo Core Fighter created by Anaheim Electronics is based on the same principles the Earth Federation used for their Core Block System. Like its predecessors the Neo Core Fighter was designed to be a cockpit for a mobile suit, specifically the MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam, that would double as a fighter plane/escape pod for the pilot. It is quite small and fast, however it mounts only light weapons which are not much use in a battle against mobile suits and battle ships. This makes it difficult for the Neo Core Fighter to take direct involvement but it served admirably as an intelligence gathering recon plane or as a distraction.
The FXA-07GB Neo Core Fighter was introduced in the month of March in the year UC 0088. Its first pilot would be Roux Louka, who was assigned to bring it to the AEUG battle ship Argama at the Shangri-la colony of Side 1. Roux successfully rendezvoused with the ship but shortly after piloted the Neo Core Fighter alongside Judau Ashta's MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam against three Neo Zeon AMX-006 Gaza-D mobile suits. After the battle was won Roux revealed that the new mobile suit the crew of the Argama had been expecting was still being made, but that the Neo Core Fighter was an essential component. Afterward the Neo Core Fighter was mostly used for reconnaissance and rarely took part in battles. The Neo Core Fighter was also the preferred means of transport people used to get off the ship without permission when they were not able to steal one of the Gundams.
At least three Neo Core Fighter units were produced, the original plus two others that arrived as part of the Core Top and Core Bottom components of the ZZ Gundam.
