The RX-77D Guncannon Mass Production Type (量産型ガンキャノン) is a mass-produced variant of the prototype RX-77-2 Guncannon.It first appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RX-77D Guncannon Mass Production Type is a less expensive variant of the original RX-77-2 Guncannon produced from the Earth Federation's "Project V." The Mass Produced Guncannon doesn't have a Core Block System and similar to the RGM-79 GM, its armor consists of Titanium Alloy/Ceramic Composite instead of the stronger and much more expensive Luna Titanium Alloy. This makes the Mass Production Guncannon lighter, thus increasing its performance in acceleration and fuel consumption. As opposed to the Guncannon, the Mass Production Type did not utilize a powerful beam rifle. Instead, it used either the typical GM's 100mm or 90mm machine gun, the latter having less ammo capacity, but having better armor penetration ability. The Guncannon Mass Production Type was also capable of mounting the Lightliner sub-flight system.

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
Mounted in the head, 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.
  • 240mm Cannon
Similar to the RX-77-2 Guncannon, the Guncannon Mass Production Type mounts over each shoulder, a mid-range fire support artillery cannon.
  • HWF GMG·MG79-90mm Bullpup Machine Gun
The bullpup machine gun is an open-bolt, gas-operated, magazine-fed, mobile suit handheld sub-machine gun. It does not require energy to be used, however it is ineffective against heavy armor. When the magazine is empty, it can be discarded and replaced with a new one.
  • NF·GMG-Type.37/100mm Machine Gun
The standard armament for Federation mobile suit ground forces, the Type 37 is an open-bolt, gas-operated, magazine-fed, mobile suit handheld machine gun. It fires a 100x450 millimeter round at a rate of 500 rounds per minute and is loaded with a 20-round box magazine. Features include a folding stock and swivel forward hand grip. Accuracy is limited due to the aiming from regular iron sights and not a targeting sensor. Maximum effective range of 1.5 kilometers.

History

The Earth Federation Forces only made a limited production run on the RX-77D Guncannon Mass Production Type since it entered the One Year War at the last moments. In Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket only two units were assigned to the Scarlet Team stationed aboard the Pegasus-class assault carrier LMSD-76 Grey Phantom. One Guncannon Mass Production Type was also assigned to the White Dingo Team in Australia, and was painted in their teams gray color scheme. Another unit was assigned to ace pilot Lydo Wolf and was painted in his trademark black colors. The Guncannon Mass Production Type would continue service in U.C 0081, where they would be used in operations against Zeon remnants.
