MSA-0011 [Bst] S Gundam
plus Booster Unit

S Gundam booster

A high-speed assault version of the MSA-0011 S Gundam. In this form, the S Gundam is equipped with four of the enhanced backpack units used by the Ex-S Gundam. Two of these booster units are mounted on its back, and the other two are attached to an adapter unit that takes the place of the mobile suit’s lower body, or B parts. Although it has no legs, the S Gundam can use its tail stabilator and shoulder wing units for AMBAC maneuvering, giving it the same kind of attitude control abilities as a humanoid mobile suit and making stable firing possible even at high speeds.

Its four booster units give this form of the S Gundam tremendous mobility. Even at full weight, it has a maximum acceleration of almost 10G, putting it in the same class as the mobile armors used by the Principality of Zeon and enabling the S Gundam to fly under its own power to the moon from low Earth orbit. However, this high performance puts a great strain on its pilot, and its operating time is limited by its relatively small propellant capacity.

This configuration of the S Gundam is used only once during the Pezun Rebellion. On March 1, U.C. 0088, pilot Ryu Roots uses this form to break through the defensive net around the asteroid base Pezun and destroy the power satellite SOL 7804, thus cutting off the power supply of the New Desides forces.
