Technology & Combat Characteristics
The G-Sky configuration combines the FF-X7 Core Fighter with the "Bottom Flyer" of Gundam and G Parts B (four engine fuselage of the G-Fighter).
- 25mm Vulcan Gun
- The Core Fighter is equipped with a total of four 25mm Vulcan guns, with a pair of two guns located rear the tip of left and right nose cone, respectively. The Vulcans are primarily used to ward off advancing enemies, shoot down missiles, or hitting other fast moving targets. They also made good use as an anti-aircraft and anti-personnel weapons. They are, however,not very effective in piercing heavy armor (though they had shown the ability to do severe damage to Mobile Suit's if fired at point-blank range) and thus were not often used against larger, more heavily armored foes.
- Missile Launcher
- Two missile launchers are located in the Core Fighter's main body, one in the left and the other in the right side. The launchers are open-hatched design, and pops up from the top surface when in use. Each launcher was initially equipped with only a single air-to-air missile, but later upgraded with four missiles each.These rocket-propelled weapons were used for bombardment and to deal damage to heavily armored enemies.
- AIM-79 Air-to-Air Missile
- AIM-77D Air-to-Air Missile
- One AIM-77D Air-to-Air Missile can be mounted optionally on each of the Core Fighter's wings via the wing pylons.
Special Equipment & Features
This was only seen during the Federation's Operation Odessa. The only difference with the G-Sky Easy configuration is that Gundam's Bottom Flyer and Core Fighter were not used, instead Guntank's core fighter piloted by Hayato Kobayashi would be used with G Parts B.
