The RX-75 Guntank is a mobile suit that appeared in the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga and its anime adaptation.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A variant of the RX-75 Guntank, the Earth Federation Forces' long-range support mobile suit. Characteristic features of this particular version include its two-seater head cockpit for a commander and a gunner, four caterpillar tracks, a dozer blade at the front of its lower body, a troop carrier compartment in the center front section of its lower body, and a pair of five-finger manipulators. The anime version is armed with a pair of low-recoil cannons, a pair of Bop missile launchers and two missile pods, while the manga version switched the missile launchers with machine guns.

History

In December UC 0079, this Guntank variant was used by the Black Cat squadron in the Battle of A Baoa Qu. It infiltrated the Zeon's space fortress alongside the RGM-79/GH Gundam Heads and then deployed troops to take control of the mobile suit production facilities within the fortress. After the war, the Black Cat squadron and this mobile suit was deployed to the assault carrier Spartan.

Trivia

  • This version of the Guntank strongly resembles the F-50D Guntank R-44's tank mode, and its role as an armored personnel carrier may have been inspired by the D-50C Loto.
