Technology & Combat Characteristics
The FAZZ was created to test the concept of adding extra armor components to critical structural points to make the unit more structurally sound. Because the FAZZ was created to gather test data only for the full armor form, however, the FAZZ itself had no transforming mechanism to simplify construction costs, and its armor components can not be removed or ejected like the MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam was capable of doing. Also, the FAZZ's high mega cannons (mounted in the unit's forehead and the front of the torso) were in fact dummy placeholders solely for checking balances. Likewise, the back mounted beam cannons were derived from the MSA-0011 S Gundam and while resembling the Hyper Beam Sabers equipped by the ΖΖ, they were incapable of being used in a similar fashion.
The tradeoff, however, is that the first FAZZ is completed almost half a year before the ZZ Gundam itself while the type was still a monstrously powerful unit: it carried a double beam rifle, attached to its right arm, and an incredibly powerful large hyper mega cannon over its shoulder, attached to a swivel on the right side of the backpack. The FAZZ also like the Full Armor ZZ Gundam incorporated several missile pods into its integrated armor components, with various assortments of missiles in both of its shoulders, left forearm, both sides of the chest, and the projection on top of the backpack. For close combat it also featured 60mm vulcan guns in the head.
Interestingly the FA-010A FAZZ is an oddity in that it is not equipped with a single melee weapon, leaving it particularly vulnerable in close combat
