The Gundam F90 test unit is a mobile suit constructed by the SNRI, and ultimately captured by the Mars Zeon in the manga Mobile Suit Gundam F90 and video game Mobile Suit Gundam F91: Formula Wars 0122.

Technology and Combat Characteristics

After its capture by Mars Zeon the F90 Gundam Formula 90 was modified to suit Zeon combat tactics. To that end the unit was outfitted with a greater number vernier thrusters to increase mobility and improved its thruster capacity for greater speed.

Because Mars Zeon failed to capture any of the optional weapons pack they decided to reduce the hardpoints (many replaced with thrusters), and give the Gundam an improved set of weaponry. The main changes were the addition of waist-mounted rocket-propelled grenades for mid-range combat. Additionally one of the beam sabers has been removed, though it is unknown why or how this could improve combat performance. Only five of the original hardpoints remain with one on each hip and forearm as well as a weapons mount on the back of the waist for the beam rifle.

The visual appearance of the Gundam has been modified from its original form to something better suited to a Zeon mobile suit. Specifically the iconic Gundam V-fin crest has been removed, the size of the fore-head mounted camera has been increased, spikes have been added to the left shoulder, and the mobile suit has been repainted red likely in homage to Char Aznable whose data was used to create the assisting AI system.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Gun
Two fire-linked Vulcan guns are mounted in the head.
  • Rocket-Propelled Grenade
Four rocket-propelled grenades are mounted on the hip armor hardpoints. Two grenades per hip.
  • Beam Saber
A single beam saber is stored in a backpack recharge rack.
  • Beam Rifle
The Gundam Formula 90 is equipped with a beam saber for ranged combat. It is powered by a replaceable E-pac.

Special Equipment

  • C.A. (Char Aznable) AI system
The second F90 Gundam Formula 90 was a prototype unit that was equipped with an assisting AI system, a system that was built upon Char Aznable's piloting data. This AI system would supplement the pilot's own skill to increase unit performance.

History

The Gundam F90 was captured by the Mars Zeon near Side 4. After the Zeon captured it they repainted it in a distinctive red-orange-white colour scheme. However the Mars Zeon were not able to capture any of the specialized Mission packs that the unit could be mounted with, but they adapted the unit with additional thrusters that granted it additional speed. A trait common in Zeon tactics was to use hit and run style maneuvers while carrying out their missions, and it would only humiliate the Federation more since it was one of their suits carrying out the damage.

The Federation's 13th Autonomous Fleet would be sent out to destroy Mars Zeon and recapture the Gundam Formula 90. In the Mars Zeon base the two unit, Uni 1 pilot by Def Stallion and the Zeon controlled Unit 2 piloted by Bosch, would battle. Both Units were heavily damaged, but in a final move reminiscent of the final battle between the RX-78-2 Gundam and the MSN-02 Zeong, Unit 1 defeated Unit 2. The remains of both machines were retrieved and Unit 2 was rebuilt into the F90II Gundam F90II.
