Gundam Crossfire: MS roster

CrossfireA lots of screenshots and videos have already been prepping you guys for Gundam: Crossfire when it launches for the PS3, and we gotta admit we enjoyed the trailers for this latest installment of the Kidou Senshi Gundam franchise. But barring the hardcore fanboys of the Gundam series (this author is guilty of being one), most of us don’t have any real ideas on what these Mobile Suits will be bringing to the game’s multiplayer table.

So, with that in mind, we’re providing you with a who’s-who of the game’s MS, with matching profiles, stats, famous pilots, and series behind each MS. This list is still missing some of the more famous MS seen in the game, such as the Kampher, or even the might RX-78-2 Gundam (AKA “White B*****d” to Zion), so we’ll let you know once their data’s been picked up.

RGM-79 GM (“Jim”)
The bread and butter of the Federation forces, the GM was built as a mass-production model of the famous RX-78-2 Gundam. Being a low-cost model, it doesn’t have the Gundam’s Luna-Titanium armor, core-fighter system, extra beam sabre or beam rifle. But while it’s only outfitted with a beam pistol, a beam sabre, and vulcans, the GM’s superior agility and numbers helped the Federation win the One-year war against Zion. Also the butt of a lot of Start Trek “red shirt” reference jokes due to it being a cannon-fodder MS.
Tech Specs:
Head Height: 18.0 meters
Base Weight: 41.2 tons
Full Weight: 58.8 tons
Generator: 1250 kW
Thrusters: 55,500 kg
180° Turn: 1.6 seconds
Sensor Radius: 6000 meters
Armor: Titanium Alloy
Armament: 60mm Vulcan gun x 2, Beam Saber, Beam Spray Gun

On to the Mobile Suit roster after this jump!
