The RX-99 Neo Gundam (aka AFX-9000 Neo Gundam, AFX being an abbreviation of ANAHEIM Formula Experiment) is a mobile suit which appears in the manga series Mobile Suit Gundam Silhouette Formula 91 in UC 0123.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The armament of the Neo Gundam was largely standard equipment, save for the G-BRD. It consisted of two shell-firing Vulcan guns, two beam sabers and a single beam shield for defense. The only true weapon for ranged combat was the optional Generative Beam Rifle Device (G-BRD). Unit 1's core fighter is equipped with a Neo-Psycommu system obtained from the Busch Concern.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Guns
Like many other mobile suits, the Neo Gundam was equipped with Vulcan guns in its head.
  • Beam Saber
The Neo Gundam is equipped with two beam sabers stored in the Core Fighter, that when connected can be grabbed over the shoulder. As Core Fighter, these beam saber can be used as beam guns, and may switch to a rapid-fire mode.
  • Beam Shield
The beam shield is a defensive technology based on the beam saber. Instead of being shaped as a blade the plasma is shaped as a wide yet thin plane.
  • G-BRD
The Generative Beam Rifle Device was the most powerful weapon of the Neo Gundam. It operated similar to the Variable Speed Beam Rifle (VSBR) used on the Formula Project Gundams of the SNRI: by varying the acceleration speed of the particles of the weapon, it was able to either cause damage on a larger area or be used to pierce a beam shield. However, while VSBRs were mounted on the suit and powered by the reactor of the MS, the G-BRD was completely hand-carried and also had its own internal reactor. The G-BRD also mounted rocket thrusters, allowing it to be attached to the Core Fighter of the Neo Gundam to work as a booster for the fighter.

History

The Neo Gundam was one of the most advanced mobile suits created by Anaheim Electronics as part of its "Silhouette Formula Project". By combining several of the most advanced weapons of this time with a classic core block system, the Neo Gundam was among the most powerful mobile suits in UC 0123. Nevertheless only two units were produced and given to the 302nd fleet, who operated as part of the Earth Federation's Londo Bell unit. While Unit 1 was painted near completely black, Unit 2 featured a more classical white and blue color scheme. Unit 2 would later be stolen by Tokio Randall, leading to the destruction of both Neo Gundam units, although Tokio would survive in the Core Fighter of Unit 2.
