Technical and Historical Notes

 

One of many Gundam F90 optional armament variations developed by the Earth Federation Forces' SNRI during the UC 0110s and 0120s, the F90A Gundam F90 Assault Type (or "A-Type" for short) is designed to perform surgical strikes against enemy bases and encampments. Equipped with a set of Minovsky craft unit/propellant tank packs on its arms and legs, the F90 A-Type can hover through the atmosphere, allowing it to quietly approach its target. In addition to its standard vulcan guns, beam sabers, and mega beam bazooka, the A-Type is also fitted with a large weapon/booster pack on its shoulders and backpack, which houses a pair of beam cannons, machine guns, and machine cannons over the mobile suit's shoulders and mounts four extra rocket thrusters to provide additional conventional propulsion and to help overcome the weight of the added-on hardware. This uniform weapon/booster pack design requires that the mobile suit's shoulders be locked into place, leaving the A-Type's AMBAC (Active Mass Balance AutoControl) to be handled mostly by its legs.
