The Vulcan Armored Car is a type of ground weapon that appeared in the Mobile Suit Gundam TV series.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Vulcan Armored Car was a half-track armored car used by the Earth Federation Forces that mounted a large, high-caliber vulcan gun on its back. The gunner operated the gun from a cockpit on the side of the vehicle. The Vulcan Armored Car was used due to the vulcan gun's ability to penetrate the armor of Zeon's MS-06F Zaku II.
- 9-barrel 60mm Vulcan Gun
- Mounted on top of the half-track platform, the 9-barrel 60mm vulcan gun possessed a high rate of fire and was able to penetrate the armor of standard Zeon mobile suits. However, it was useless against more heavily armored enemies.
The Vulcan Armored Cars had seen service at important EFF bases such as Belfast and Jaburo. Their effectiveness however, were very limited against the more advanced and heavy-armored mobile suits such as the MSM-03 Gogg.
