G-Parts support units

By Jenxi Seow




The latest batch of mecha profile are support units that are formed from G-Parts. Most of these Earth Federation units only appeared on the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam because they were considered to be closer to the super robot genre, instead of the real robot genre that director and writer Yoshiyuki Tomino envisioned for the series. A few units appeared in other Universal Century series.

We consider these units as non-canon on MechaBay. However, they played a critical role in introducing the idea of an interchangeable and transformable module that function as a fighter. This concept influenced many later mecha designs in Universal Century series and in the other Gundam timelines.
