Design & Development

After completing development on the RX-78-01[FSD]Gundam FSD, two projects were undertaken by the Earth Federation Forces [1]. One was the full mass-production of RX-numbered machines, the other was the expanded weapon system FSWS(Full-armour System and Weapon System)plan[1]. The FSWS plan was to strengthen the RX-78 by increasing armor and weapons, and several fuselage design proposals were considered[1].The FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam type was outfitted with external armor and weapons upon the fuselage, while the FA-78-2 Heavy Gundam itself was a heavy duty armor fuselage[1]. It achieved improvements in armor, firepower, and maneuverability[1].

Operational History

The Heavy Gundam participated in the battle of Solomon. It fought Vasily Bosch's Act Zaku during the battle of A Baoa Qu, ultimately immobilizing it. However, it was apparently consumed by the explosion of the Dolos while Vasily was recovered by his teammates.
