The G-Fighter is a space and atmospheric fighter. It is the support unit to the RX-78-2 Gundam. It was featured in the original Mobile Suit Gundam TV series.

Technology and Combat Characteristics

The G-Fighter was a versatile assault fighter designed to support the Gundam. Because of its high speed flight capabilities the G-Fighter made for an excellent scout or as a harassing fighter. And with its heavy beam cannons the G-Fighter was just as dangerous to mobile suits as other machines of the Project V. When on Earth the G-Fighter served as an aerial jet that could be used to fight Zeon's Dopp Fighters while the Gundam fought against enemy mobile suits. In space the G-Fighter served as a long range anti-mobile suit fighter.

Armaments

  • Beam Cannon
  • 2-tube Missile Launcher

History

During the One Year War, the already impressive RX-78-2 Gundam had a design drawback in terms of mission versatility. To correct this problem, the Earth Federation designed the G-Modules as various support parts for the Gundam in the form of G-Parts A (the main cockpit and caterpillar treads armed with a double barrel mega particle cannon above the pilot and missile launchers stored in the nose) and B (the four engine fuselage). The G-Fighter is the combination of G-Parts A and B. It can be used in both space and on Earth, and can use both of the G-Modules weapons. This was the main configuration of the G-Modules used during the One Year War. One G-Fighter was lost during the Battle of Solomon when Sleggar Law kamikazed his fighter into the underside of the massive MA-08 Big Zam in order to cripple the mobile armor's beam-deflecting I-field. The second G-Fighter is thought to have been destroyed along with White Base during its destruction in the battle of A Baoa Qu.

The G-Fighters were only present in the original anime series. In subsequent movie and game adaptations, as well as series that follow the Universal Century continuity, the G-Modules were scrapped in favor of the more realistic FF-X7-Bst Core Booster design.

Notes & Trivia

  • In the video game Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters in Space, during the White Base TV Mode, the MA-08 Big Zam was seen catching the G-Fighter with it's feet claws and crushing it instead of the G-Fighter crashing into the Big Zam, with the close-proximity explosion implying to have damaged the Big Zam's I-field.
