Technical and Historical Notes

Although the RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes" mobile suit was intended to be upgraded for use in space, the uprising of Zeon remnants in UC 0083 moved this project up considerably. The GP01, not being properly calibrated for space combat, had been critically damaged by Zeon forces when its pilot, Kou Uraki, had carelessly taken the mobile suit out into battle. The damaged GP01 was immediately taken to Anaheim Electronics' Von Braun City factory on the moon to be repaired and reconfigured for zero-gee use. Soon, the rebuilt and improved RX-78GP01-Fb Gundam Full Vernian "Zephyranthes" was rolled out and went through a rapid battery of test trials before being redeployed aboard the Federation assault carrier Albion in pursuit of the stolen Gundam GP02A. The Full Vernian GP01 was a tremendous improvement over its original form, almost doubled in acceleration and with a marked increase in maneuverability. It also featured an improved space-use version of its Core Fighter II, incorporating the mobile suit's large thruster- and vernier-laden backpack into its design. Following the nuclear attack on Konpeitoh, the GP01Fb was destroyed in a final duel with the GP02A.

So, going to work on the "Orchis" anytime soon? Seriously, the GP-03D would be an amazing undertaking for anyone.
