The RCX-76-01B Guncannon Firepower Test Type (RCX-76-01B ガンキャノン火力試験型 lit. Thermal Test Type [1]?) is a mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Discovery design series and the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin MSD: Cucuruz Doan's Island manga.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

During the initial development of the RCX-76-02 Guncannon series, differently equipped units were produced for evaluation tests. The RCX-76-01B was designed to test equipment for long distance support. A large caliber gun is equipped on the weapon platform on both shoulders, and the right arm has been replaced with a quadruple gun for short range combat. The RCX-76-01B also had a second cockpit on the head, manned by a gunner which controlled the weapons, while the control of the MS was done from the abdominal cockpit. It was found that the recoil received by the MS during the test of the large caliber cannon was greater than expected, so its use in the Guncannon First Type was rejected [2][3].

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Guns
It has two, each one mounted on the sides of its head [3].
  • Large-Caliber Cannons
Cannons for long-range attacks. They are powerful, but their accuracy rates were found to be remarkably low, with the mobile suit unable to stand the recoil after shooting [3].

Notes & Trivia

  • Chronologically, it is the first mobile weapon to possess the iconic doubled vented mouthplate present in many of its Gundam descendants.
