[b]Ability Data[/b]

[b]Shield:[/b] The Heavy Full Armor Seventh carries the normal shield used by the Seventh.
[b]Reactive Armor:[/b] Like the Seventh, the Heavy Full Armor frame makes use of a reactive armor system to help reduce the damage from incoming projectiles.
[b]Frame Purge:[/b] The Heavy Full Armor frame is designed to be easily purged in combat, in the event that damage to it impacts performance.
[b]Sniper Module:[/b] The Heavy Full Armor frame includes advanced targeting and acquisition systems that allows it to snipe with the Beam Shot Cannon, but only when it's firing in the low-power mode.

[b]Weapon Data[/b]

[b]60mm Vulcans:[/b] Standard head-mounted 60mm mobile suit vulcans.
[b]90mm Gatling Gun:[/b] Because the 90mm vulcan ports on the Seventh Gundam are covered up by the Heavy Full Armor module, the designers mounted a tri-barrel 90mm gatling cannon in a storage mount under the right arm. When the gatling cannon is not required, it folds back into the protection of the storage mount.
[b]Missile Pods:[/b] Mounted on the shoulders, legs, and back of the Heavy Full Armor frame are a number of missile tubes.
[b]Beam Saber:[/b] The Seventh Gundam's standard beam saber.
[b]Beam Scatter Guns:[/b] Built into the top of both arm platings is a set of very light beam guns, designed to spray the area in front of the Seventh like a shotgun.
[b]Beam Shot Cannon:[/b] Halfway between a beam rifle and a beam cannon, the Shot Cannon can either fire as a normal beam rifle, or drain the entire e-cap in a single shot to fire a much more powerful beam.

[b]Technical and Historical Notes[/b]

Years after the Seventh Gundam was designed, some developers from the Earth Federation were looking back over old project notes, and decided to try to make a new model Seventh to compete with the new designs rolling out. The base frame of the Seventh Gundam wasn't insufficient to modern requirements, but it had a lot of room for new technologies to be applied. However, in their excitement, the upgrade module for the Seventh Gundam ended up being a monstrous thing, and it was only due to extended use of the added verniers that the machine could even stand when in atmosphere.

Dubbing the failed concept the "Heavy" Full Armor Seventh Gundam, they shelved the design and were eventually folded into the team that was working on the RX-121 Hazel Gundam.
