Born in Indianapolis, Christopher Anderson lied about his age and joined the Army at 16. While in the service, the highly athletic Anderson excelled at hand to hand combat, and was invited to play sports at West Point. He quickly because the quarterback of the football team, which was how he finished out his Army career. Although interested in playing in the NFL, Anderson was merely a lightly regarded 5th round pick by the San Diego Chargers. There, he ended up as the opening day starter in his rookie season after the starter went down with an injury and no one looked back. In his first three seasons, he led the Chargers to three Super Bowl victories, an undefeated season, and blasted every single season quarterback record in existence at least once.
In the following years, Anderson would lead the Chargers to another pair of Super Bowl wins, and although he has only played for eight seasons, he is already widely considered the greatest quarterback in NFL history. After the disastrous outing of Neo America’s 3rd Gundam Fighter in FC 16, and seeing Anderson’s unique combination of athleticism, and his military background, he was approached to be their next Gundam Fighter. Anderson quickly accepted, and would spend the next several off-seasons relearning and sharpening his military hand to hand combat skills and preparing for the highly anticipated 4th Gundam Fight.
Highly respected and admired (Except by Raiders and other non-Chargers fans). Anderson has a spotless image in Neo America. Anderson is usually very easy going, but highly dedicated to doing as well as he can in any competition, be it a Super Bowl or Gundam Fight.

Technological and Historical data:
Designed from the very start with idea that Chris Anderson would be the pilot, the Quarterback Gundam is a fairly minimal design. It is fairly light on armor, relying more on mobility than absorbing hits.
It doesn't have a large number of weapons, but it's main weapon is highly effective and highly versatile. The beam football emitters main purpose is to generate an oblong beam that is roughly football shaped, which are then "thrown" by the Gundam, with speed and distance dependant on the throw by Anderson, just like a real football. Their secondary purpose is to form thin gloves around the hands, which can then be used as small, crude beam sabers, and seriously enhance normal fighting actions. Although Anderson is best when throwing with his right hand, he is capable of throwing with his left as well.
However, due to the nature of the emitters, the beams can not be sustained for long periods due to fear of overheating or worse. The football can only be "held" for about 15 seconds before it fires off automatically, while the "gloves" can only last for about 10 seconds before they automatically turn off. If either mode overheats or automatically turns off, it takes roughly 40 seconds before it is safe to use either mode again, while under normal circumstances, the recharge time is only about 10 seconds. In addition to the beam football emitters, the QB Gundam also has conventional chest mounted vulcans, and a heat facemask.
Explanation of Ultimate Attacks:
A simple but highly effective long range attack, the Long Bomb has the Quarterback Gundam charge up one of it's emitters to create an extra powerful "football" that can fly considerably further than normal, while still retaining Anderson's usual high degree of accuracy even at the longer range. However, the Long Bomb requires a considerable amount of power, and puts such strain on the emitter that after using the Long Bomb, it takes at least one minute before the beam emitters can be used again.
Two Minute Drill:
A rapid fire series of attacks, the Two Minute Drill increases the Quarterback Gundam's abilities for two minutes, all but eleminating the normal recharge times and possibility of overloads for exactly two minutes, while seriously dropping it's defense ability, making it more vulnerable to any attacks that the opponent manages to land. Following use of the Two Minute Drill, the Gundam remains weaker for several seconds, while the beam emitters go overloaded and unusable for nearly 90 seconds. Because of these limitations, the Two Minute Drill is often used to deliver a final series of blows to finish an opponent, or to help bring the Quarterback Gundam back into a fight, hoping that the Two Minute Drills effects while keep the opponent shocked long enough for Anderson to fully recover from the demanding drill.
Two Minute Drill Mode:
Neo America Support Team
The Neo America Support Team travels around in a super sized hover bus. Designed to suppport the Quarterback Gundam and its crew, it is covered in logos for the various sponsers of the team.
The leader of the support team. Crusoe was supposed to be on the 3rd Neo American Gundam Fight Support Team, but broke her leg on a vacation prior to the fight and missed out on the aborted 3rd Gundam Fight. Exceptionally dedicated to making sure everything goes as smoothly as they can for the team, she serves as the team’s official spokesperson and runs everything behind the scenes. Attractive, with shoulder length brown hair, brown eyes, and usually fairly quiet and reserved.
Albert “Cabbie” Roosevelt
Hover bus driver and head mechanic for everything the team needs. A long time mobile suit mechanic, Roosevelt was on Phil Philadel’s 2nd Gundam Fight team. He briefly retired in FC 13, working as a cab driver in New York City, before being lured back to the Neo America Support Team as an alternate in FC 15, and was promoted in FC 16. Slightly over weight, with wavy blonde hair, Cabbie constantly talks in his distinctive Brooklyn accent.
An assistant mechanic, Sanders also serves as the team’s cook when they are traveling. He mainly focuses on the weapons, but assists Cabbie in whatever is needed. Sanders usually can’t get a word in thanks to his superior. Small, skinny, wears thick glasses, with a nasally voice, Sanders is the very image of the word ‘nerd’.
The third mechanic for the Gundam and unofficial security. Jackson is simply along to serve as an extra pair of hands for the mechanic team to ease the possible workload on everyone else. He fills in where needed without complaint, happy to be helping. Cheery and lanky, with short cut black hair.
