Template:Infobox/Mobile Weapon Ver.2The F90 Gundam F90 ("F90" standing for "Formula 90") is a mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam F90 manga.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The first mobile suit of the Strategic Naval Research Institute's "Formula Project." The F90 Gundam F90 was a downscaled mobile suit, standing at only 14.8 meters compared to the RX-78-2 Gundam, which stood at 18 meters. Although the F90 was given a standard armament of a beam rifle, two beam sabers, and a solid shield, the unit was also given numerous hardpoints. These hardpoints allowed the F90 to take on external equipment for various roles in combat. The Gundam could be equipped with as many as 26 different configurations, meaning the F90 could be equipped for anything from heavy assault and support fire to underwater combat and atmospheric reentry. The configurations made the F90 one of the most versatile mobile suits of its time.


  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
The F90 is equipped with a pair of head mounted Vulcan guns, which serve as mid-close range defensive weapons. While they do little damage against the armor of a mobile suit, they are useful for shoot down incoming missiles, small attack vehicles, or to deter closing in enemy machines.
  • Beam Saber
The beam saber is the standard close-combat weapon of many mobile suits, it emits a blade of plasma contained by an I-field that can cut through any physical armor that have not been treated to resist it. The beam saber is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor, and the F90 is equipped with two beam sabers stored on the backpack.
  • Beam Rifle
The beam rifle is the standard ranged weapon of Earth Federation mobile suits, it fires a compressed mega particle beam which can penetrate any physical armor, leading to the saying that any mobile suit equipped with a beam rifle had the power of a battleship at its disposal. The F90's beam rifle is powered by a replaceable e-pac and can be stored on the waist weapons mount.
  • Shield
A type of defensive armament used by many mobile suits. The shield is a thick sheet of armor designed to take severe punishment that would normally destroy a mobile suit. Since the introduction of beam weaponry, shields have been treated with an anti-beam coating to withstand several beam shots before the coating wears off. Typically, physical shields can only take so much damage before they succumb to the pressure and break.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Hardpoints
The F90 is equipped with 11 Hardpoints for mounting various external equipments and/or armaments to meet specific needs or combat situations. Potentially, the unit can be equipped with as many as 26 unique armament configurations, making the F90 extremely versatile.
  • Weapon Rack
The F90 is equipped with a weapon rack for any optional external weapon the unit cannot already carry. Typically, for the F90, it would be for mounting the Beam Rifle.
  • A.R. (Amuro Ray) AI system (Unit 1)
F90 Unit 1 was equipped with an assisting AI system, a system that was built upon Amuro Ray's piloting data. This AI system would supplement the pilot's own skill to increase unit performance.
  • C.A. (Char Aznable) AI system (Unit 2)
F90 Unit 2 was equipped with an assisting AI system, a system that was built upon Char Aznable's piloting data. This AI system would supplement the pilot's own skill to increase unit performance.


Following the Neo-Zeon wars, a time of relative peace began for the Earth sphere, without any major spacenoid uprising. Nevertheless, the Earth Federation Forces decided to maintain their military strength by creating newer mobile suits, designed for this new age. Although Anaheim Electronics had a virtual monopoly for several decades when it came to mobile suit production, the EFF created its own in-house development thinktank, which was called the Strategic Naval Research Institute (SNRI). This organization was tasked with the duty to create new scaled-down mobile suits, which were not only smaller and more lightweight but also mounted the newest weaponry and technology to cope with different combat situations and missions.

SNRI eventually started this project under the name "Formula Project", which resulted in the creation of the F90 Gundam F90. Two models of this suit were created and both were tested by the EFF's 13th Experimental Squadron. During testing a remnant Zeon force, calling themselves the "Oldsmobile Army", made its appearance at this time. They stole the F90 Unit 2 and carried it away to their base on Mars where it was reconfigured into the OMS-90R Gundam F90.

The Earth Federation reassigned the 13th Experimental Squadron, along with Unit 1, as the 13th Autonomous Fleet and was launched to Mars in order to destroy the Oldsmobile Army. On the surface of Mars the F90 Unit 1 would combat Oldsmobile mobile suits around Olympus Mons using equipment from several of its combat packages, primarily its Assault, Destroid, and Support packages. Within the Zeon's Oldsmobile base inside Mount Olympus Unit 1/Def Stallion engaged the OMS-90R Gundam F90 piloted by Bosch. Both Units were heavily damaged, but in a final move reminiscent of the final battle between the RX-78-2 Gundam and the MSN-02 Zeong, Unit 1 defeated Unit 2. The remains of both machines were retrieved and Unit 2 was rebuilt into the F90II Gundam F90II.

SNRI continued their Formula Project, which resulted in the creation of the more advanced and powerful F91 Gundam F91.





Action Figures

Notes and Trivia

  • A crudely edited version of the Gundam F90 makes several cameo appearances in the American comedy movie "Grandma's Boy" in posters for "Gay Robot", a fictional video game made by Brainasium, where the majority of the film's characters are employed. Gay Robot itself is actually a character created by comedian Nick Swardson, who was one of the writers of the movie.
