The FA-00100S Full Armor Hyaku Shiki Kai is a variant of the MSR-00100 Hyaku Shiki Kai from the M-MSV series. It is also featured in Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ Side Story - Nightmare of the Battlefield and the Mobile Suit Collection Comic SECRET FORMULA manga.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The FA-100S is a Hyaku Shiki Kai equipped with additional heavy armor. Although its mobility is reduced by the added weight of the Full Armor system, it has an assortment of built-in armaments, including missiles, explosive bolts and powerful beam weaponry. The Full Armor Hyaku Shiki Kai wields a Long Mega Buster, a huge rifle which is based on the Mega Bazooka Launcher used by the original Hyaku Shiki. All these weapons make the Full Armor Hyaku Shiki Kai a powerful offensive unit, albeit a sluggish one.

Though it was not mass-produced due to the trend of variable mobile suits at the time of the Gryps Conflict, the Full Armor Hyaku Shiki Kai prototype unit was used by Cliff Fleming in his fight against a MRX-011 Mass Production Type Psyco Gundam piloted by Enlight near the industrial city Epsilon on the Moon on November 20, UC 0087. With the Full Armor Hyaku Shiki Kai severely damaged and Anaheim Electronics' 3rd Development Division destroyed, the Hyaku Shiki (Delta Gundam) project was officially ended. The Full Armor Hyaki Shiki Kai is last seen in U.C.0096 piloted by Fresberg Squadron member Martin Murtaugh. It destroyed a MA-05 Bigro belonging to Zeon Remnants and participated in the final battle against the NITRO Squadron.
Notes and Trivia
- The nature of the "Explosive Bolts" has never been fully explained, leading to many speculations and several interpretations. While later official sources clarify that they are grenade-like weapons, and they were depicted this way in Mobile Suit Gundam U.C. 0096: Last Sun, it was depicted as an arm-mounted weapon that discharges electricity in Super Robot Wars games (possibly due to mistaking "ボルト" for "volt").
- The electricity discharge version of the Explosive Bolts appear in G Generation Genesis as part of the F.A. Hyaku Shiki Kai's beam saber animation.
- Some of older material list its total thrust as 11300 kg which is even lower than MS-05B Zaku I.
