The FA-78-3 Full Armor 7th Gundam first appeared as a part of Kunio Okawara's Missing Mobile Suit Variations (M-MSV). The Gundam was later redesigned and updated and appears in the video game Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C. 0081.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The FA-78-3 Full Armor 7th Gundam is the armor-equipped space combat version of the RX-78-7 7th Gundam. Unlike the previous FA-78-1 Full Armor Gundam, the Full Armor 7th Gundam is able to fight without any drop in performance. This is accomplished with the addition of sub generators and propellant tanks in the Full Armor components. The emphasis of the Full Armor components is offensive power rather than defensive power. This is reflected in the armaments, which include vulcan guns, beam sabers, hand beam guns and a beam shot cannon. However, since the One Year War ends with only the 7th Gundam's basic frame being completed, the Full Armor components are never built. Incidentally, the name does not mean "Full Armor Gundam #7" but rather "Gundam #7 Full Armor parts." There are only two previous Full Armor Gundams: the FA-78-1 Gundam Full Armor Type and the FA-78-2 Heavy Gundam.
