The Reinforce Junior appears in the Mobile Suit Victory Gundam anime.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Reinforce Junior is the Reinforce that was modified using parts from the Squid-class control ship Squid 1. These modifications include additional gun turrets, a beam shield emitter that can be used for ramming attacks, an overhauled propulsion system, and additional catapults and hangar space.
- Beam Shield
- A protective device first used by the mobile suits of the U.C. 0120 era and eventually, battle ships during the Zanscare War in U.C. 0153. Thanks to their increased generator output, the scaled-down mobile suits of this era are able to use beam technology for defensive purposes. Unlike an I-field generator, which is effective only against beam attacks, the beam shield blocks both beam and projectile weapons. The beam shield generates a plane of energy similar to the blade of a beam saber. This plane is divided into multiple sections, which can be turned on or off as needed to conserve energy. Individual sections are also automatically deactivated whenever they're in danger of coming into contact with the mobile suit itself.
- The Reinforce Junior is equipped with a large beam shield at the nose area in which the generator can be retracted when not in use.
- 2-barrel Main Gun
- 3-barrel Secondary Gun
