Before i talk about the Judgment Gundam, I'll talk about the Sigma Wing.
The Sigma Wing was built prior to the deploying of the N-Jammers, thus had a nuclear FISSION reactor. It was developed by Dr. Rockbell Martel, an exiled scientist for ORB because human experimentation of direct Neurological Interface Technology and unique abilities of Newtype humans. With what he had from his research he secretly built the F.I.N.N system and the Sigma Wing Gundam in the abandoned colonies. The gundam is equipped with a prototype Positron rifle, a beam saber, and 11 Funnels. The S.Wing armor is composted some kind of alloy in which its molecular structure are able to house trillions and trillions of Nano-bots that could repair the armor in the event of damage (not the systems!!!) by using the surround alloy or even a Ginn's sword
. However this causes the armor to thin out abit. also, because of the Structure and the Alloy and its unnatural composition it is able to absorb kinetic energy (physical attacks) and distribute it throughout the armor (to an extent).
This unit was given to Cha Minatsuki, who uses it to protect the ORB Space colonies, in February 1 CE 70. Althrough Cha has extraordinary spatial awareness he is not a Newtype and needs assistance from the faulty FINN system Mk I. Cha also fought in the Bloody Valentine to stop to nuclear attack, but failed because he was assumed an enemy by ZAFT and attacked. After ZAFT deployed the N-Jammers in CE 70 April 1, Dr Martel retro-fitted it with an energy Pack and a beam rifle to replace the power hungry Positron rifle. From there Cha continued to protect the colonies. During the Heliopolis conflict (January 25, CE 71), he failed to get there in time. Upon his arrival, Cha sees the destruction of Heliopolis and begins to have flashbacks of Junius Seven. Eventually Cha decides to leave space and head towards earth, he convinces Dr. Martel to return to ORB with him. They pack the S.Wing into a transport ship and leave.
During the Battle of Orbit (February 13, CE 71), the transport ship was caught in the middle of the conflict and Cha & the S.Wing were jettison, unfortunately Dr. Martel was killed. The S.Wing was space model MS and was not designed for self-reentry. As a result, The unit's FINN system was rendered useless. Cha eventually makes it to ORB, and is accepted by the nation as part of its military/MS development team. Unfortunately and S.Wing's OS was not compatible with the Astray's Systems. Cha's unit was repair but was not equipped/designed for combat on Earth. However Cha recklessly jumped into his unit during the Battle of Orb (June 15-16, CE 71), and manage to hold on his own. It's there he meets Xiao Liang piloting in a M1. realizing that a civilian was piloting the unit Cha does his best to protect Xiao, giving support and cover fire. During the second phase of the Battle of ORB Xiao's M1 was attacked by the GAT-X131 Calamity but was saved by the S.Wing, but S.Wing was damaged. During the evacuation The Freedom helps the down unit and was loaded into the Kusangi. The unit was repaired in space, repairs finished right before the battle of Jachin Due. At the Second Battle of Jachin Due, Cha Fought the ZGMF-X13A Providence and was no match with DRAGOON system and was nearly killed. He was rescued by Xiao (who's unit was also crippled by Providence) and returns to the Kusangi. After the war the Cha was unable to pilot another Mobile suit because Psychological trauma when place into a cockpit.
Parts of the S.Wing was salvage, which includes the damaged yet repairable Funnels, because it unique alloy and Nano-bot technological. And was rebuilt as the ORB-G43F Judgment Gundam, since Cha was unable to pilot it, the unit was given to a now Lieutenant Commander Xiao Liang.
The Judgment's armor has the same principles and properties as the S.Wing's armor except that the Nano-bots are able to do minor repairs to damaged systems and the PS armor prevent the need for the constant use of th repair, thus slows down the rate of armor "thin out." This combination of armor allows physical attack to be useless as well as beam weapons. The Canon is much larger that I said (its now... more like a beam Bazooka), when fired it rapidly depletes the battery and the recoil damages the Gundam. When the canon is fired constantly (4 shots MAX, but safety guideline says 3) it literally rips the Gundam apart!!!! In addition the unit has 2 Particle canons mounted on its hips. The differences between the S.Wing and the Judgment is that the Judgment is able to fight on Earth and is superior in melee combat.
Sorry forgot about the FINNS Mk II. Since the FINN system (Mk II) isn't straining to control 11 remote units by a non-Newtype pilot the system was able to be expanded. For example the system as able to act as second set of sensors; additional feature that allowed the funnels to be used as a temporary energy shield (360). With Xiao's Newtype abilities the system is able to max the efficiency of the funnels' operations by 165%!
Extra bit: Cha's landing in February of CE 71 could be the reason for the Akatsuki's (DRAGOON like) "mobile turrents."
