F91 Gundam Formula 91

The F91 Gundam is a high-performance mobile suit developed by Earth Federation's Strategic Naval Research Institute. Considered a late member of the famous Gundam series, it was made almost fifty years after the legendary first Gundam, during a period of the Federation's decline.Fact|date=June 2008 Although reduced in size compared to its famous predecessor (15.2 meters tall compared to 18.5) and mass (19.9 tons fully loaded while the RX-78 took off fully loaded at 60.0), the F91 was immensely more powerful, with an array of advanced weaponries, as well as the revolutionary beam shield, which is much more effective than the solid material shields.Fact|date=June 2008 F91 inherited the versatile design of its predecessor F90 Gundam, able to adapt to 20+ different mission roles simply by changing gear packs.

The most powerful weapons of this Gundam were its twin "Variable Speed Beam Rifles" (VSBR), which despite the name "beam rifle" were actually built-in weapons drawing their power directly from the mobile suit's fusion reactor. These guns could adjust their mega-particle acceleration, reacting them extremely quickly to produce a highly penetrative beam capable of piercing beam shields, or very slowly to produce a heavy beam that inflicts maximum crude damage. Other than being a weapon, the VSBRs can also be used as additional tail binders for AMBAC maneuvers, significantly improving the suit's combat efficiency. The technology behind the VSBR later served to develop the "Minovsky drive" system equipped by the V2 Gundam in U.C.0150s.

Another powerful feature is the ground-breaking "bio-computer", which is a reverse psycommu system that processes and feeds battle data directly to the pilot's brain. This allows ordinary pilots (i.e. Oldtypes) to perform almost at par with Newtypes. However, due to the mental stress, it's best utilized by a Newtype.

These high-performance components, however, created the problem of excessive heat generation. Thus, aside from numerous heat sinks on its shoulders, its mouth can be opened as a vent; The excessive heat can cause the MePE (Metal Peel-off Effect), the "shedding" the outermost layers of the Gundam's exterior armor, which creates an "after-image" effect that could sometimes be used as visual decoys to confuse the enemy.

Gundam F91's prototype design made it's debut in war against Oldsmobile Army in UC 0122 with Bergh Scred, former pilot of Gundam F90, as its pilot.

The first completed model of F91 was assigned to the training ship "Space Ark", a modified "Clop" class cruiser in the U.C. 0123. It later become a limited mass-production mobile suit, serving in the ranks of Earth Federation Forces for at least the next decade. Even ten years later they still presented a threat against Seabook Arno's F97 Crossbone Gundam — the VSBR managed to pierce two layers of beam shields before being blocked by the Crossbone Gundam's powerful beam zanber.Fact|date=June 2008 These F91s piloted by Harrison's squad dealt considerable damage to Seabook's Crossbone Gundam, resulting in him unable to fight back when his wingman Zabine Chareux betrayed and turned on him moments later.

In addition to basic model, at least two variants of Gundam F91 existed. The first is called HWF-91 Gundam F91 Heavy Weapons Type or Powered Weapon Type, which replace VSBRs with a pair of 4-barrel beam Gatling guns and 2-tube anti-ship missile pods. The HWF-91's shoulders also got addition armor and cooling fin. The second variants is Twin V.S.B.R. Type, by adding an extra pair of VSBR used by G-Cannon V.S.B.R. Type.

RXF-91 Silhouette Gundam

A mobile suit built by Anaheim Electronics as part of the Silhouette Formula Project, it is based on the stolen plans and technical data of F90V Gundam F90 V.S.B.R. Type. While Silhouette Gundam has a different appearance, it Is technically a replica of Gundam F90V, featuring most of the new technologies incorporated into the Gundam F91, with the exception of the multi-layer armor and the bio-computer, which hadn't been completed by SNRI when Anaheim Electronics acquired Gundam F91's data.

The Silhouette Gundam was later upgraded into RXF-91A Silhouette Gundam Kai ("Kai" is Japanese Kanji character " _ja. 改", meaning "modified" in English) by improving its reactor and the armor on the torso and cockpit hatch area.
