Technology & Combat Characteristics
Besides the standard armament of the Victory 2 Gundam (vulcan guns, beam sabers, beam shields, hardpoints and multi-launcher), the Buster configuration grants the Gundam several heavy weapons. This new weaponry includes a large mega beam cannon, a beam spray pod (both weapons mounted over the shoulders of the suit) and six micro-missile launcher pods, which can be used to attack multiple targets at once.
- Beam Rifle
- A standard hand-held ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle. Capable of firing mega particles, attacks from a beam rifle can damage any ordinary armor that has not been specially treated to resist it. One of the more effective methods of blocking a beam rifle is to use a beam shield.
- Beam Pistol
- The beam pistol is the core unit of the Victory 2 Buster's beam rifle. When required, parts of the beam rifle can be ejected to reveal the beam pistol.
- Mounted below the barrel of the Victory 2 Buster's beam rifle, it can be load and fire various physical projectile.
- Grenade Launcher
- A grenade launcher can be mounted below the Victory 2 Buster's beam rifle's barrel in place of the Multi-Launcher.
- Beam Saber
- The LM314V23 Victory 2 Buster Gundam is equipped with four beam sabers stored in forearm recharge racks when not in use.
- Beam Shield
- The LM314V23 Victory 2 Buster Gundam is equipped with two beam shields, one stored in each forearm when not in use. The beam shields are also operable when the Top Fighter is operating independently.
- Head Vulcan
- A standard armament of the mobile suits that are descended from the Earth Federation Forces's RX series is a pair of head mounted 60mm vulcan guns. These shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire, but have little power and can't damage the thick armor of a mobile suit. Although, they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. The weapons are ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles, small land vehicles, and attack helicopters.
- Mega Beam Cannon
- A long range beam cannon mounted on the back. Its attack range and firepower is comparable to the Gryps war-era's mega bazooka launcher and hyper mega launcher. Useful in anti-fleet battle.
- Spray Beam Pod
- Mounted on the back, it supports the Mega Beam Cannon and is a close-mid range defensive equipment. It also serves a counterweight to the Mega Beam Cannon as well as being the latter's energy capacitor.
- Micro-Missile Pod
- The LM314V23 Victory 2 Buster Gundam is equipped with 6 micro-missile pods, 2 mounted in a single pod on each leg, and 1 mounted on each front skirt armor plate.
Special Equipment & Features
- Custom Targeting Sensor
- Hardpoints are multi-purpose storage racks designed to externally store any weapons or equipment that has been designed to be carried by a hardpoint. Hardpoints are standard equipment for all League Militaire mobile suits. The LM314V23 Victory 2 Buster Gundam is equipped with eight hardpoints, 4 located on arms in mobile suit mode and on main body of Top Fighter, 2 located on hip armor in mobile suit mode and on main body of Top Fighter, 2 located on the legs in mobile suit mode and on main body of Bottom Fighter.
To cope with different combat situations, the Victory 2 Gundam is able to be outfitted with two different sets of armament. One of these armament sets is the Buster configuration, which is used for heavy battles.
