“GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA” Back Story
Birth of “RX-78F00 GUNDAM”
“RX-78-2 GUNDAM” started in Space Colony “Side 7”, U.C. (Cosmic Century) 0079.
It has gone through numerous battles as the aircraft of the Earth Federation Army pilot “Amuro Ray” during the one year war.
And it is said that the aircraft was lost in the fierce battle of “A Baoa Ku”.
After that, a large number of parts believed to be of the “RX-78” type were discovered near the “GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA,” a facility related to the Earth Federation Army in the Far East Asia region.
YOKOHAMA, which has been a terminal port for large cargo since the era of the Christian era, may have been a perfect place for secretly transporting/storing huge MS parts in the earth sphere.
However, there were no records of the parts of the “RX-78” type that were discovered this time.
Therefore, engineers from various fields secretly gathered in “GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA” to clarify the technical information. It took a long time to research, analyze, and reconstruct a large number of parts that were stored apart…
It was as if we were developing a new GUNDAM.
There are some parts that have not been found, and no materials related to Minovsky craft have been found.
After about two years of research and development, the “GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA” will finally start a reconstructed MS startup experiment!
The staff involved in the study called this mecha “RX-78F00”.
