Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following the destruction of two of the three RX-78-2 Gundam prototypes being assembled and tested at the Federation's Side 7 research colony in September UC 0079, the remains of the two damaged units are loaded aboard the Earth Federation Forces' White Base assault carrier, eventually making its way to the underground Jaburo military headquarters on Earth. The remains of the two damaged RX-78-2s are cobbled together into a new testbed unit, designated the RX-78-3 G-3 Gundam. The G-3 is used for testing new mobile suit technologies and ideas, the most well-known feature being the magnetic coating system developed by Mosk Han. By applying this electromagnetically-charged material to the G-3's motors and joints, the mobile suit's maneuverability and response time is increased by 30%. This successful technology is later applied to the remaining RX-78-2 Gundam still operating in the field aboard White Base. In early UC 0083, the G-3 is stationed aboard the White Base II and piloted in combat against Zeon remnants by Georges Miguel, a Zeon double agent.
