Technical and Historical Notes

 

Early during the Gryps Conflict, the AEUG's newly-captured RX-178 Gundam Mark II mobile suit is soon outclassed by new variable-form mobile suits/mobile armor being developed by the Titans. Although fairly impressive for its innovative new "movable frame" construction, the Gundam Mark II soon finds itself left behind in terms of mobility, armor and firepower. To compensate for these shortcomings, the Anaheim Electronics Company comes up with a proposal to enhance the Mark II's performance. Additional equipment made from gundarium alloy is to be added, as well as a more powerful 2-barrel beam cannon with a grenade launcher. However, the Full Armor Gundam Mk II's development is close to that of the FXA-015D G-Defenser, which is determined to be more useful in battle. Subsequently, the planned upgrade is dropped, and the Full Armor Gundam Mk II is never built.
