The G-Sky is one of the different combinations of the RX-78-2 Gundam and the G-Fighter in Mobile Suit Gundam.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The G-Sky is formed by combining the FF-X7 Core Fighter with the lower body of the Gundam and the B-Parts of the G-Fighter. The B-Parts serves as a booster attached to the rear of the Core Fighter, enhancing its capabilities as a fighter. All of the armaments of the Core Fighter and B-Parts are still usable when combined. The G-Sky is classified as a support fighter-bomber and is capable of high-speed, long-distance operation. Combining the Core Fighter directly with the B-Parts without the Gundam results in the G-Sky Easy. The G-Sky and G-Sky Easy were used as references when developing the FF-X7-Bst Core Booster.

Armaments

  • 25mm Vulcan Gun
Two pairs of vulcan guns were mounted in the nose of the Core Fighter. While essentially ineffective against mobile suits' armor, they were useful for combat against other aircraft, intercepting incoming missiles/rockets, destroying mobile suit sensors, and attacking lightly-armored vehicles.
  • 4-Shot Anti-Ship Missile Launcher
An anti-ship missile launcher was mounted on each side of the Core Fighter's main body. They had an open-hatched design and rise out of the recess when in use. Each launcher was initially equipped with only a single air-to-air missile, but was later upgraded with four missiles each.
  • AIM-79 Air-to-Air Missile
The two missile launchers were loaded with AIM-79 air-to-air missiles, which were used for bombardment or attacking heavily armored enemies that the vulcans were incapable of damaging.
  • AIM-77D Air-to-Air Missile
An AIM-77D air-to-air missile could optionally be mounted on each wing via pylons, improving the Core Fighter's air-to-air combat capabilities.
  • 4-Tube Missile Launcher
A retractable 4-tube missile launcher was mounted at the rear of the G-Fighter, below the main thrusters.

History

The G-Sky was only seen during the Federation's Operation Odessa.
