Penelope

From The Free Gundam Wiki

The RX-104FF Penelope is a mobile suit that appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway.

Design & Development[edit | edit source]

A fifth generation mobile suit manufactured by Anaheim Electronics for Mafty's raid on the Adelaide Conference[1]. Although it is a sister machine to the Penelope, more epoch-making technology has been introduced since it is equipped with a built-in Minovsky Flight Unit[1]. Its overall height exceeds 26 meters and its arms are considerably larger than the standard mobile suit's size[1]. While it bears the name "Gundam", it has a shape that stands out as a monstrous silhouette[1].
