The Fanfan is a missile hovercraft that appears in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam. It is also featured in Gundam Build Fighters Try Island Wars, where Nils Yajima pilots a 1/1 scale Fanfan to Nilsen Labs.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A small aircraft operated by the Earth Federation Forces during the One Year War, it is equipped with fans on the lower left and right sides, missile pods on the upper left and right sides, and a cockpit and rearward-facing propulsion unit in the center. The left and right fans allow it to hover freely even on uneven terrain such as the inside of Jaburo (inside a limestone cave), and the radio-guided missiles allow it to control the missiles after they are launched, enabling it to carry out attacks with a high hit rate. It was the only flight-capable weapon among the base defense weapons deployed in Jaburo, and since it was developed before the advent of mobile suits, it had a difficult time in the battle against MS. Although it is a double-seater aircraft, it can be piloted by one person.

Armaments

  • Guided Missile
Ten guided missile launchers were mounted on the Fanfan, with five on each side. The radio-guided missiles could be controlled after firing, ensuring a high hit rate.
  • 7.7mm Minigun
Four miniguns are mounted in the nose of the aircraft, with a pair on each side.

History

Captain Woody Malden, who is in charge of repairing the White Base in Jaburo, boards this machine to defend the White Base. In Jaburo, while the RX-78-2 Gundam and the Z'Gok piloted by Char Aznable are engaged in a battle, he intervenes to support the Gundam and attacks the Z'Gok with a missile. Immediately afterwards, his cockpit is crushed by an arm and he is killed.

In the manga "Mobile Suit Gundam U.C. 0094: Across the Sky", an aircraft deployed at Torrington Base in Australia appears. Mechanic Robin Diez repairs it, ostensibly for the leisure of his troops, and boards it when he travels to the Titans' home base, Devil's Nest. Although it is hidden by dirt, the mark of the Titans, to which Diez once belonged, is painted on the fuselage. Diez also appreciates the aircraft's excellent low-flying performance.

In the TV anime "Gundam Build Fighters Try Island Wars", it appears as a company vehicle of Yajima Trading. It was boarded by Nils Yajima when he went to Nielsen Lab on the southern island.
