The PF-78-1 Perfect Gundam is the variation of the titular mobile suit of Mobile Suit Gundam, the RX-78-2 Gundam and the first non-UC Gundam. Designed by Kunio Okawara and later by Hajime Katoki for the Gundam Fix Figuration version, it played a prominent part in the manga Plamo-Kyoshiro, and later became part of the original design series Mobile Suit Variations (MSV). Its built and piloted by Shiro Kyoda.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Plamo Kyoshiro

Shiro's customized Gunpla, the Perfect Gundam is a heavily modified 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam equipped with heavy plastic armor and various equipment. Shiro's actual purpose for the equipment is to enhance the overall attack and defense capabilities of the RX-78-2. However despite the unit's enhancements, both speed and performance were not thought of and the said customization suffers from balance and performance issues.

G Generation/Gundam Fix Figuration series

The Perfect Gundam is a enhancement plan for the original RX-78-2 Gundam used to test the a prototype version of the Full-Armor System and Weapon System (FSWS). The overall unit is planned to be reinforced with special removable armor and weaponry to maximize the overall performance and changing its overall appearance, but also gives the unit additional weight. The unit is also equipped with several thrusters on its legs and a high output backpack, which gave the unit excellent speed and mobility, however due to the high output, the unit sports a propellant tank on its back which allows the Perfect Gundam to have additional operational time.

The weaponry of the Perfect Gundam is also enhanced and changed, aside from retaining its vulcan guns and beam sabers. It is equipped with an enhanced 2-barrel Hand Beam Gun on it's right arm and a 360mm Rocket Gun on this back. It also sports a RX-M-SH-008/S-01025 type Shield, which also houses four Drop Mines.

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Guns
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, though it 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.
  • Beam Sabers
The Gundam was the first mobile suit to ever use a beam-oriented weapon in melee combat. The beam sabers use Minovsky particles held in place by an I-Field to form an effective cutting surface that can slice through nearly any material. The Perfect Gundam carries three beam sabers stored in its shield when not in use.
  • 2-barrel Hand Beam Gun
The Perfect Gundam is equipped with a new 2-barrel hand beam gun, an upgrade to the RX-78-2's standard beam rifle. Its power output can be adjusted when necessary and powered by a rechargeable e-cap.
  • Shoulder Cannon
Mounted on the back, the nature of this weapon is different in each works.
In Plamo Kyoshiro, it's a high pressure water gun.
In MSV, it's 360mm rocket gun. A powerful artillery piece derived from the RX-78-2's Hyper Bazooka.
In Gundam Build Fighters, it's an extremely powerful beam cannon with an output high enough to blow a hole in an fortress wall.
  • RX-M-SH-008/S-01025 Shield
A shield equipped on the Perfect Gundam's left arm. It is equipped with four Drop Mines, and stores the Gundam's beam sabers.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Full-Armor System and Weapon System (FSWS)
The upgrade program, developed several options packs to increase the Gundam's already considerable power.
  • Propellant Tank

Universal Century (SD Gundam G-Generation/Gundam Fix Figuration)

The Perfect Gundam wasn't actually built and only exist as a CG Data for High Ranking Federation Officials.[1] Little was know about the unit's existence, especially on the history of its development as it was kept secret within the Federation's top members and researchers. However its believed some of the specifications were carried onto the FA-78-1 Gundam Full Armor Type.

Gundam Build Fighters

The Perfect Gundam appears in the final episode of Gundam Build Fighters. Piloted by Takeshi Iori,  he uses it to provide cover for Sei Iori (his son) and Reiji to destroy the out of control Plavsky Crystal.
