The '''RX-77-3 Guncannon Heavy Arms Type''' is a variant of the [[RX-77-2 Guncannon]]. The Guncannon Heavy Arms Type is an official [[Mobile Suit Variation]].

==Technology & Combat Characteristics==
 
==Technology & Combat Characteristics==
The Federation's prototype [[RX-77 Guncannon]] was designed as a heavily armed support mobile suit for its' brother units [[RX-78-2 Gundam]] and [[RX-75 Guntank]]. Over the course of the [[One Year War]], the Federation created variations of the Guncannon to be outfitted for specific roles. The Guncannon was revamped into several designs, one of them being the Guncannon Heavy Arms Type. Although it is simply an external update to a normal Guncannon, it was proven a great success and fielded for combat on Earth. While it retained the head vulcans and beam rifle of the RX-77-2, the RX-77-3 however featured improved armor, updated 240mm Cannons and a new grenade rack.
+
A further development of the [[RX-77-2 Guncannon]], the RX-77-3 Guncannon Heavy Custom fixed some of its predecessor's issues and had better operational capability. Compared to the Guncannon, the Guncannon Heavy Custom had lower recoil when firing its 240mm Cannons. Furthermore, the cannons' rate of fire and ammunition feed system were improved, leading to higher offensive power. It also has enhanced armor for better defense, carried a heavier payload, and its backpack's propulsion system has a higher thrust output to offset the added weight and to improve mobility.
  +
  +
Some of these improvements were made to meet the Earth Federation Forces' demands; they wanted the Guncannon Heavy Custom to be capable of solo combat, as well as be able to form a homogeneous mobile suit team for group combat. There were also considerations to deploy such a team of Guncannon Heavy Customs alongside other mobile suit teams for cooperative battle. The performance of the completed Guncannon Heavy Custom was satisfactory, but the Earth Federation Forces ordered the development department to conduct further research as there were issues, such as its mobility, which could be improved upon.
  +
  +
To solve the recoil and balance issue completely, some test units later had their cannons replaced with a beam cannon. As the Guncannon Heavy Custom only received a limited production run, it was thus an uncommon machine. During the [[Gryps War]] years later, units stationed in [[Jaburo]] were outfitted with panoramic cockpit monitor, linear seat, a new color scheme and used the same beam rifle as the [[RMS-179 GM II]].

These shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire but have little power and can't damage the thick armor of a mobile suit, though it can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. The weapons are ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles, small land vehicles, and attack helicopters.

The mid-range fire support artillery cannon is fed by a twenty (20) round internal magazine located inside the main body of the mobile suit. Each 240 x 800 millimeter shell has a 95 kilogram HE fragmentation warhead, with a casualty radius of 40 meters. Can fire to distances up to 2.5 kilometers. For RX-77-3 Guncannon Heavy Arms type, its shoulder cannons had been improved with reduced recoil during firing and better reloading mechanism which enhanced its artillery performance.

:Like the original Guncannon, the Guncannon Heavy Custom's main weapon is a pair of shoulder-mounted 240mm cannons. However, the Guncannon Heavy Custom's cannons have better offensive power due to a higher rate of fire and a better ammunition feed system. The recoil during firing has also been reduced, and although this issue is not completely eliminated, it does not cause much problem during practical use.

Maximum effective range of 2.8 kilometers.

The RX-77-3 Guncannon Heavy Custom is a mobile suit developed from the RX-77-2 Guncannon, it first appeared in Mobile Suit Variation.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A further development of the RX-77-2 Guncannon, the RX-77-3 Guncannon Heavy Custom fixed some of its predecessor's issues and had better operational capability. Compared to the Guncannon, the Guncannon Heavy Custom had lower recoil when firing its 240mm Cannons. Furthermore, the cannons' rate of fire and ammunition feed system were improved, leading to higher offensive power. It also has enhanced armor for better defense, carried a heavier payload, and its backpack's propulsion system has a higher thrust output to offset the added weight and to improve mobility.

Some of these improvements were made to meet the Earth Federation Forces' demands; they wanted the Guncannon Heavy Custom to be capable of solo combat, as well as be able to form a homogeneous mobile suit team for group combat. There were also considerations to deploy such a team of Guncannon Heavy Customs alongside other mobile suit teams for cooperative battle. The performance of the completed Guncannon Heavy Custom was satisfactory, but the Earth Federation Forces ordered the development department to conduct further research as there were issues, such as its mobility, which could be improved upon.

To solve the recoil and balance issue completely, some test units later had their cannons replaced with a beam cannon. As the Guncannon Heavy Custom only received a limited production run, it was thus an uncommon machine. During the Gryps War years later, units stationed in Jaburo were outfitted with panoramic cockpit monitor, linear seat, a new color scheme and used the same beam rifle as the RMS-179 GM II.

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
Mounted in the head, these shell firing weapons have high-rate of fire but little power and can't damage the armor of a mobile suit, though they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. They are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • 240mm Cannon
Like the original Guncannon, the Guncannon Heavy Custom's main weapon is a pair of shoulder-mounted 240mm cannons. However, the Guncannon Heavy Custom's cannons have better offensive power due to a higher rate of fire and a better ammunition feed system. The recoil during firing has also been reduced, and although this issue is not completely eliminated, it does not cause much problem during practical use.
  • Beam Cannon
Instead of the shoulder mounted cannons, the Guncannon Heavy Custom can be fitted with the same beam cannon and targeting unit as the RX-77-4 Guncannon II.
  • BAUVA*XBR-L Beam Rifle
The Guncannon Heavy Custom can use the same beam rifle as the RX-77-2 Guncannon. It is powered via an internal energy capacitor with an average charge of 15 rounds. The beam fired can tear through the armor of enemy MS and MA that haven't been treated with anti-beam coating. It is said to have an effective range of 30km.
  • BOWA·BR-S-85-C2 Beam Rifle
The same weapon as used by RMS-179 GM II, it has a power rating of 1.9 MW and is powered by a rechargeable energy cap. This beam rifle was used by the Guncannon Heavy Customs stationed in Jaburo during the Gryps War.
  • Hand Grenade
The Guncannon Heavy Custom has an unknown number of hand grenades stored in a rack on its left side armor. Various types of hand grenades can be stored.

History

During the early part of the Gryps War in UC 0087, at least one Guncannon Heavy Custom was known to have participated in the defense of the Earth Federation's Jaburo base.
