This list is going to contain a total of 20 strongest mecha suits from Gundam. You probably know by now that the Gundam series is large and diverse, which means that we had a variety of suits to choose from, which made our job that much more difficult.
Strongest Gundam Suits
The list is going to contain a total of 20 suits, which are going to be ranked from 20th to 1st place, based on their strengths. You’ll find out some basic info on each of the suits as you go along the list.
20. RGM-79SP GM Sniper II
Based on the GM Command series and the concept of the RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom used early in the war, the GM Sniper II is a high performance machine capable of using full capacity special weapons for very long range operations. It was the newest and most advanced in the Federation’s GM sniper program during the One Year War. It was also one of the last types of GM developed during the war.
The GM sniper’s II special head visor features integrated composite sensors with special laser sensors, powerful zoom cameras and image stabilizers for precise long-range targeting. While in use, the goggles cover the main camera and other elements of the head sensor array and, together with the head unit’s radiators, physically eliminate noise and enhance the sniper’s long-range capabilities.
19. JMA-0530 (Model U) Wodom
The JMA-0530 (Model U) Wodom (short for “Walking Dome”) is a large mobile anti-ship combat suit used by the Dianna Counter Forces. The head is a generator and weapons block with small missile launchers that open through hatches, anti-aircraft volcanoes, and a ray gun.
This beam weapon is intended for anti-ship use and not for ground use. In addition, there are large missiles on both sides of the head. This head block can be detached and can fly independently.
Due to its enormous height of 40 meters, the Wodom is also very effective at hitting and hitting at close range. Its armor is very well protected by the use of nano-skin. The cockpit is located in a cylindrical block on the lower back and is very spacious compared to other MS.
The cockpit can be a single or dual cockpit, with the pilot and commander of the unit on board and acting as a command unit. Apparently, the Wodom was meant to scare off Earthlings due to its strange appearance.
18. RMS-108 Marasai
The RMS -108 Marasai was developed using Zeon design principles combined with technologies developed by the Earth Federation during the One Year War. Technologically based on the RMS -106 Hizack, the Marasai features upgraded technologies such as a movable frame, Gundarium alloy armor instead of titanium alloy which improves overall defense, increased sensor range, increased acceleration, and an extremely powerful and compact Minovsky-type fusion reactor.
It is equipped with high-performance engines that allow atmospheric flight under gravity for short periods of time.

In addition to the technological improvements, the Marasai is also several tons lighter than the Hizack when measured by its empty weight. However, the Marasai did not have as wide a range of weapons as the Hizag, as the Hizag was often equipped with older Zaku weapons such as machine guns and thermohawks, while the Marasai only used advanced beam weapons.
17. SVMS-01 Union Flag
The Union Flag (a.k.a. Flag) is the latest mass-produced Union mobile suit in 2307, the successor to the VMS-15 Union Realdo (a.k.a. Realdo). It was designed with an entirely new concept and is not directly based on the Realdo, but has similar features to its predecessor.
In addition, the model number is reset to “01” and is not a continuation of the Realdo to signify that it is a new generation of versatile and convertible mobile suits. The high level of completion of the flag would have led the AEU to use the mobile suit as a benchmark for the development of the AEU-09 AEU Enact.
Like the Realdo, the Flag can switch between humanoid MS mode and fighter flight mode. The primary purpose of flight mode is not to travel within Union territory, but to be stationed anywhere in the world as part of the Union’s self-proclaimed duty to be the “police of the world”.
16. RGM-89 Jegan
A state-of-the-art machine used by Earth Federation forces in the United States. was acquired. As a mobile master suit, the Jegan 0089 came from the line of RGM-79 GM, as evidenced by its model number “RGM”. However, it was not designed by the in-house engineers of the Earth Federation Forces, as were most of the mobile suits in the earlier RGM series.
Instead, it was manufactured and supplied by Anaheim Electronics (AE). Its development combined the expertise of the Earth Federation Forces’ GM series with the development technologies of AE MS .
The Jegan’s performance is far superior to that of the RGM-86R GM III. Using a composite armor of titanium and ceramic alloys, it also offers higher productivity as well as high mission capability and excellent versatility. All of this makes it the “next generation standard MS” and has long been the main strength of MS.
Several variants of the MS have also been developed. The original Jegan is sometimes referred to as the “Jegan Type-A” to distinguish it from later variants, and should not be confused with the later RGM-89R Jegan A-Type.
15. The RX-78 Gundam
The prototype Gundam RX-78-1 is the third MS produced by Operation V and developed at Jaburo’s military headquarters on Earth. The Gundam prototype, the starting point for the RX-78 series of mobile suits, was designed differently from Operation V’s other mobile suits in that it did not rely on raw firepower like the RX-75-4 guntank and the RX-77th Bet value -2 cannon. Instead, the RX-78-1 emphasized fast close combat, much like the MS -06 Zaku II of the Principality of Zeon.
In addition to the constant weight reduction, cooling units are fitted to the waist and knees to withstand space combat, and a heat-resistant terrain system is provided for atmospheric entry.
14. Zudah Gundam
During the race of the Principality of Zeon to develop a superior fighting machine, four prototype mobile suits were developed by different engineering firms: one of them was the EMS -04 Zudah of Zimmad. It had a good engine with unprecedented thrust and acceleration. It also had a prototype Jupiter engine, based on Zimmad’s prototype Mercury engine.
However, the suit had its limitations: When the engines were overloaded, the suit overloaded and broke. The Zeonic Company used this information to outperform the Zudah with their famous YMS-05 Zaku, and successfully marketed the Zaku series.
However, that was not the end of the story. The Zudah was re-released under the model number EMS -10 with some minor improvements and cosmetic differences.
13. GF13-049NM Tequila Gundam (Spike Gundam)
This mobile fighter, representing the space colony of Neo Mexico, is a type of amphibian specifically designed for underwater combat. The hat-like structure on its head houses a rotating fan that the Tequila Gundam can use to create a powerful vortex and lure enemy mobile fighters into the water.
Although its defensive capabilities are relatively weak, the Tequila Gundam can deflect attacks with the reinforced armor on its shoulders and forearms, and its ten head-mounted volcanoes provide 180-degree protection. In the Super-Class! Mobile Fighter G Gundam manga, the Tequila Gundam is able to fire the spikes of its right shoulder armor like missiles.
12. MSM-08 Zogok
The Zogok is a prototype amphibious mobile suit with enhanced close combat capabilities, developed during the One Year War. A variant of the MSM-07 Z’Gok, the Zogok was one of the “Ag-series” mobile special suits designed by the California Base Engineers for the invasion of the Force’s underground military headquarters. Earth Federation at Jaburo. It was intended to work with the other mobile suits in the series, such as the MSM-04G Juaggu, and had an avant-garde function.
Unlike the Z’Gok, the Zogok is not equipped with firearms like the Mega Particle Cannons. Instead, he has unique melee weapons like punches with his extendable arms, boomerang cutters that he throws at his head from above, and more.
These weapons have also been chosen to emit as little light and heat as possible to reduce the likelihood of detection when infiltrating the heavily guarded Jaburo. Despite being an amphibious unit, the Zogok’s combat capabilities are primarily intended for ground combat.
11. ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam
The Freedom Gundam is one of ZAFT’s Gundam ZGMF-X units, built on CE 71 using technology from the four captured Alliance Gundams, a ray gun. When the last three weapons are deployed simultaneously, the Freedom is in ‘full burst mode’.
The suit is fully atmospheric flight capable, and the wings attached to its back can be deployed in ‘High Mobility Air Tactical Mode (HiMAT)’ to increase its mobility in the atmosphere or in space.
It also has an advanced targeting system, the Multi Lock-On System, which allows it to target and fire on multiple enemy units simultaneously. Due to its capabilities and features, the suit has a reputation for being a killer, specializing in mobile suits. However, its high performance has resulted in a complicated control system that requires its pilot to be extremely responsive and spatially aware.
10. RX-78NT-1 Gundam “Alex”
The RX-78NT-1 Gundam “Alex” was developed by the Federation Earth Forces as a mobile suit specifically for Newtypes during the One Year War. His intended pilot was Amuro Ray, an elite pilot who showed Newtype’s powers in combat and, as a result, overloaded his RX-78-2 Gundam. In fact, Amuro’s data was used during the development of the machine.
Since the Earth Federation forces did not have the same level of Newtype research as the Principality of Zeon, the Alexs did not have psycomm-controlled ranged weapons.
Instead, it was designed to be highly maneuverable, mobile and responsive, and take advantage of the excellent reaction speed and reflexes of a Newtype. Test pilot Christina MacKenzie (a former guy) found the machine to be incredibly powerful, almost out of control.
9. ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam
A mobile suit tailored to Kira Yamato’s needs, the Strike Freedom features variable phase change armor and, like its predecessor, the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam, is primarily equipped with powerful long-range weapons. Its armament includes a head-mounted CIWS, a belly-mounted multi-phase beam cannon, waist-mounted railguns, combinable beam sabers and beam cannons, DRAGOON pods controlled by the new Super DRAGOON system, and beam shields.
It is powered by the new Hyper-Deuterion engine and is also equipped with the Neutron Jammer Canceller and the Car Lumière propulsion system. Due to Kira’s exceptional controls, her mobile suit is rarely touched during combat, and thus Strike Freedom’s design emphasizes maneuverability rather than the defensive capabilities of her armor, even though ray shields have been installed as a compensatory defensive measure.
8. RX-93 ν Gundam (Nu Gundam)
The ν Gundam is one of the most advanced mobile suits of the Second Neo-Zeon War in the United States, 0093 used in conjunction with Char Aznable’s MSN-04 Sazabi by Amuro Ray, who also developed the basic design. It was manufactured at Anaheim Electronics’ Von Braun facility and completed in a short time (about three months) under the supervision of Chief Engineer October Saran.
Its design was based on the average specification values of each subsequent generation of Gundam types, from the original RX-78-2 Gundam to the MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam, and updated with advanced technologies introduced over time. Various test data from the ARX -014P Silver Bullet (funnel test type), the YRA-90A μ Gundam, and the RX-9 Narrative Gundam were also used during development.
The design of the ν Gundam focuses on versatility and operational aspects, as well as reliability and durability for long-lasting combat.
7. LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam (V2 Gundam)
The Victory 2 (V2) Gundam was developed from the Victory Gundam LM312V04 and was the last Gundam produced by the Military League as a new symbol, replacing the old Victory Gundam. Nevertheless, it had many similarities to its predecessor, most notably the Core Block System, in which the V2’s body consisted of a Core Fighter (also called V2 Core Fighter) attached to the upper and lower body. of the combination.
This made it possible to quickly and easily replace damaged parts in the middle of combat. The V2 Core Fighter could also be combined with the upper body (also known as the V2 Top Limb or “Hanger” as it was unofficially called) or the lower body (also known as the V2 Bottom Limb or “Boots”) to form the V2. into the Top Fighter or V2 Bottom Fighter.
6. GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X
The GX-9901- DX Gundam DX was developed by the United Nations New Earth Mobile Suit Engineers (NUNE). NUNE salvaged the wreckage of the GX-9900 Gundam X, which had been used by Jamil Neate during the 7th Space War, and transplanted part of its system into the new mobile suit named Double X. Since developing a new design was extremely difficult, the mechanics used the Gundam X as the base unit for the Double X’s development.
The Gundam Double X featured an improved satellite system, the “Satellite System Mk- II”. It consisted of a larger reflector unit on the back with six panels and several energy emitter panels on the limbs as part of the new improved cooling system to increase the absorption of microwave energy.
In parallel with this increase in energy storage capacity, the single-barrel Canon Satellite was converted into the twin-barrel Canon Satellite Twin, allowing Double X to unleash many times more destructive power than the Gundam X.
5. XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero
The XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero was the first “Gundam” designed by the five engineers who had developed the OZ -00MS Tallgeese. Around 175 AD, the MS developed by OZ as a “weapon” began to evolve as a historical mobile weapon based on the Tallgeese (Leo prototype). Meanwhile, several engineers who formed the core of the Tallgeese development fled OZ to develop an even more powerful one MS.
Five of them teamed up to develop a MS using “technologies and materials that did not exist at the time,” including “gundanium,” a high-tech material of the time. Developed in the face of Tallgeese’s failure, it became a terrible machine with an interface that pushed the limits of the pilot.
It is “Wing Zero” and the material used gave it the code name “Gundam”. The conversion to Neo-Bird mode allows for fast flight; also, the Twin Buster Rifle has the power to destroy a space colony with one hit.
4. RX-0 Unicorn Gundam
The Unicorn Gundam, produced as the final part of the EFSF reorganization plan, the “UC Project”, is a revolutionary design believed to be the main symbol of the project’s main goal: to destroy all traces of zonism in the sphere. earthly. So not only does it have a Gundam design, but it also has an anti-newtype system. Two prototypes were completed at the Anaheim Electronics factory in Granada.
However, when the Vist Foundation took control of the project, they installed a special operating system “La + Program” in Gundam that made him a symbol of possibility by making him the key to finding the Laplace Box: Hope. embodied by Universal Century. Equipped with the most advanced mobile combination technology of the time, its performance is unmatched.
Based on test data from the experimental MSN-06S Sinanju stone, the entire frame of the Unicorn Gundam was made of Psycho Frame material, which greatly improves the responsiveness of the device and allows it to be controlled like an extension of the pilot’s body.
3. GF13-017NJII God Gundam
As the successor to the Shining Gundam, the God Gundam has a balanced arsenal of weapons. For ranged combat, the God Gundam has four Vulcan cannons on its head and two automatic cannons with three cannons on its shoulders.
For close combat, the God Gundam can draw its two beam sabres (one is on a charging tray on each hip) or use a pair of spurs on its forearms, the God Slashers. The God Gundam was also capable of many special attacks, some of which were improvised on short notice by pilot Domon Kasshu.
The most important technique was the Bakunetsu God Finger, an improved version of the Shining Finger from the Shining Gundam. The power of the Bakunetsu God Finger allowed the God Gundam to focus the energy in its hand, stick it into an enemy mobile suit, and then unleash its power in a secondary technique called Heat End, blowing up the enemy.
2. GNT-0000 00 Qan[T]
The 00 Qan [T] is a fifth-generation Gundam designed and tuned specifically for Celestial Being’s first innovator, Gundam Master Setsuna F. Seiei. It is the latest mobile suit (MS) developed by Celestial Being. Its blueprints originated from an Innovator project and were sent by Veda / Tieria (with Level 7 approval) to Celestial Being engineers for analysis and development.
As the successor to GN -0000 + GNR-010 00 Raiser, 00 Qan [T] has an improved twin drive and is equipped with the new quantum system. While Zabanya and Harute were developed using parts from their predecessors, 00 Qan [T] was produced as a new mobile suit. The development resources and focus used for the 00 Qan [T] are higher than the other two.
1. System-∀99 ∀ Gundam (Turn A Gundam)
The Turn A Gundam was originally designed for interstellar warfare. Unlike other mobile suits (even the ones in front of Turn A itself), Turn A is powered by a DHGCP powerhouse in its abdomen, which is essentially a man-made black hole. This is used in conjunction with an innovative, non-responsive I-Field Beam Drive system to move suit limbs and provide thrust. As a result, the unit’s chest is almost completely hollow and can be equipped with various weapons such as missiles or beam cannons inside.

The legs are also hollow due to the use of the I-Field Beam Drive and contain a number of motor blades used to propel the jumps and flight of the suit. This leaves the rear of the device free to store additional weapons and gear if needed. The armor of the Gundam is also covered with self-healing nanomachines known as “nanoskin”.
