The RX-77D Guncannon Mass Production Type (量産型ガンキャノン) is a variant of the 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 RX-77-2 Guncannon produced under the Earth Federation's "Project V". It doesn't have a Core Block System, and like the RGM-79 GM, its armor uses Titanium Alloy/Ceramic Composite instead of the stronger and much more expensive Luna Titanium Alloy. This makes the Guncannon Mass Production Type lighter, thus improving its mobility and reducing fuel consumption. Unlike the Guncannon, the Guncannon Mass Production Type uses either the GM's 100mm or 90mm machine gun instead of a beam rifle. When required, the Guncannon Mass Production Type can be fitted with the Lightliner sub-flight system.

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
Mounted in the head, these shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire but little power and can't damage the thick armor of a mobile suit, though they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. They are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • 240mm Cannon
Similar to the RX-77-2 Guncannon, the Guncannon Mass Production Type has a pair of cannons mounted over the shoulders. They serve as the suit's primary weapon for mid-range fire support.
  • 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. Has less ammunition than the 100mm machine gun, but better armor penetration ability.
  • 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. Maximum effective range of 1.5 kilometers.
  • NFHI RGM-M-Sh-AGD Shield
The shield is a simple defense used to block most incoming ballistic and explosive projectiles. It is also treated with an anti-beam coating to defend against beam weapons, however the coating gets gradually burned away each time a beam strikes it until it is rendered useless. This shield is the same shield as used by the RGM-79G GM Command and RGM-79GS GM Command Space Type.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Lightliner

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, 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 painted in the team's gray color scheme. Another unit was assigned to ace pilot Lydo Wolf and 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.
