Neuro - Link
...since it's neuro link, what the point of having buttons and levers then?...sigh!
uc...it was called gundam because of the 2 other ms besides it: the guntank and the guncanon. and it has capability of the other 2.
..."The third mobile suit developed under the Earth Federation's top-secret "Project V," the RX-78 Gundam series saw its initial rollout in the form of the RX-78-1 Prototype Gundam at the Federation's Jaburo military headquarters on Earth. The Gundam was designed as a fast, close-combat mobile suit and was the first to feature several new technologies, including the energy cap-based beam rifle (making the Gundam the first mobile suit to pack the firepower of a battleship) and beam saber. Once the initial design was approved, development proceeded to the second stage, and three RX-78-2 Gundam began construction and testing at the Side 7 research colony."
this gundam was actually made for earth terrains but the RX-78-2 is capable in multi terrains.
