Technical and Historical Notes

 

The HFA-78-3 Heavy Armed FA Gundam (aka Heavy Full Armor Gundam) is the ultimate evolution of the RX-78-7 Gundam 7th. This unit is the FA-78-3 Full Armor Gundam 7th with the addition of a mega beam cannon unit. The cannon unit gives it the same power as a battleship and is equipped with a large-sized generator, propellant tanks and additional verniers. The Gundam 7th is not completed until after the end of the One Year War. In UC 0081, the suit is assigned to Hugues Courand, a pilot with the Phantom Sweeper unit that is tasked with hunting down the Zeon remnant group known as the Invisible Knights. Hugues uses the Heavy Armed FA Gundam during an operation to stop the Invisible Knights' "Tears of Varuna" plan.
