The RTX-65 Guntank Early Type is a main battle tank/mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga and its OVA adaptation.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A large fighting vehicle officially adopted by the Earth Federation Forces in U.C. 0065. Equipped with two large-caliber cannons for bombardment, it also has quadruple autocannons in its manipulators, which are capable of both anti-ground and anti-air combat. This machine was born from concepts far beyond those of traditional tanks. Thanks to this breakthrough in large tank design, it has established an overwhelming presence ever since its deployment in the colonies began. It is used to maintain public order.[1].

Armaments

  • Large Caliber Cannons
The Guntank is equipped with two Large Caliber Cannons (大口径砲?) for bombardment [1].

History

The Guntank was the first Mobile Suit utilized by the Earth Federation. It was technically also the Autonomous Republic of Munzo's first mobile suit before it became the Autonomous Republic of Zeon. In U.C. 0068, one unit was used by Crowley and two rogue soldiers to transport Casval and Artesia to safety. When military officers led by the Zabi siblings tried to stop them, Casval furiously takes over the Guntank and proceeded to eliminate almost the opposing forces until Artesia helps him regain his senses. Said Guntank was evacuated as a decoy before its passengers escaped [2].

In U.C. 0071, the Guntank was used to test Zeon's first Mobile Suit, Mobile Worker MW-01 Model 01 Late Type which resulted with the latter's victory.
