The RXF-91A Silhouette Gundam Kai is a mobile suit that appears in the manga/model kit series Mobile Suit Gundam Silhouette Formula 91 in UC 0123.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
After Tokio Randall and his RXF-91 Silhouette Gundam broke through the Crossbone Vanguard's siege in the Zebra Zone, the Silhouette Gundam's wreckage was returned to Anaheim Electronics and subsequently refurbished as the RXF-91A Silhouette Gundam Kai. It featured reinforced armor throughout the chest, cockpit hatch, and near the intakes. Additionally, it has improved main generator output and is retrofitted with a new model VSBR.
- The most powerful weapon employed by the Silhouette Gundam Kai is a new type of beam rifle known as the Variable Speed Beam Rifle, or VSBR for short. Rather than being a hand-carried weapon powered by an energy cap or e-pac, the VSBR was mounted on the mobile suit itself and powered directly by its reactor. The pilot could adjust the speed at which the mega particles used in the beam fire were accelerated. Slower-speed particles produced a wider beam that delivered more raw damage, and higher-speed particles created a more tightly focused, penetrating beam. Thus, the Silhouette's pilot could choose to deliver beam damage on a wider area or focused, high-speed shots to penetrate thick armor or even beam shields.
- The Gundam is equipped with two Variable Speed Beam Rifles which are mounted on the unit's backpack.

- The "A" in the "RXF-91A" designation stands for "ADVANCED".
