Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Reinforce Junior is the Reinforce that was modified using parts from the Squid-class control ship Squid 1. These modifications include additional gun turrets, a beam shield emitter that can be used for ramming attacks, an overhauled propulsion system, and additional catapults and hangar space.
- Beam Shield
- A protective device first used by the mobile suits of the U.C. 0120 era and eventually, battle ships during the Zanscare War in U.C. 0153. The Reinforce Junior is equipped with a large beam shield at the nose area in which the generator can be folded forward for ramming attack or retracted when not in use.
- 2-barrel Main Gun
- The main weapons of the Reinforce Junior are six 2-barrel main beam cannons. Two are on each side of the ship while the remaining two are mounted on the ventral hull of the ship.
- 3-barrel Secondary Gun
- For anti-air/anti-mobile suit defense, the Reinforce Junior is equipped with sixteen 3-barrel seocndary guns. Eight are mounted on the sides of the bridge, while eight more are mounted on the sides of the primary catapult, midship.
