RX-78-2 Gundam | Mobile Suit Gundam

Created by the Earth Federation and built on Side 7 as part of the crash program known as Operation V, the RX-78-2 Gundam was a prototype close range mobile suit equipped with advanced weapons designed to counter Zeon’s mobile suit forces. However, a Zeon raid on Side 7 caused the mobile suit to end up in the hands of a young boy named Amuro Ray.

Amuro would go on to become one of the greatest war heroes of the Universal Century, with the Gundam playing a critical role in several battles that occurred in the latter half of the First Zeon War – the death of Garma Zabi, the defense of Jaburo, Operation Odessa, and the final campaigns against Zeon itself. The Gundam itself would become a legend in its own right long after it was destroyed at the end of the First Zeon War, inspiring a long line of successors that would be used throughout the Zeon Wars…and beyond.
