VII. Armor:

The armor of the Gilgamesh Type I is composed of an advanced alloy composed of unknown metals. Whatever the metal, it stops all small arms and heavy infantry weapons fire, as well as provided good resistance to light mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi 22.3mm HE autocannon round, and fair resistance to medium mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Valkyrie's 55mm APFSDS round.

The Gilgamesh Type I provided full protection from nuclear, biological, and chemical hazards, using a sealed cockpit environment. The internal consumables supplies could provide breathable atmosphere for four days maximum.

VIII. Development:

If there was one mecha that any pilot feared during the 4th Robotech War, it was the Gilgamesh Type I.
