Technical and Historical Notes

 

Early during the Gryps Conflict, the AEUG's newly-captured RX-178 Gundam Mk-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 Mk-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 Mk-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 FA-18 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.
