Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Assault Type Gunperry has a much larger container, and is equipped with every possible type of observation instrument that can function under Minovsky particle ineterference. Data collected from these instruments allows on-board officers to make informed decisions and relay them to the mobile suits on the ground, and also enables auto-piloting even under Minovsky interference, which is invaluable during night time flight. Thanks to new engines, the Assault Type has increased mobility, airborne time, and all-weather capabilities. It is also equipped with greatly improved jamming systems and powerful Minovsky particle dispersal equipment.
