The "barrel" thing is a Anti Personnel 12.7mm Vulcan Cannon.
Basically, the description says that it's a first time for a Gundam (well,
uptill 0079) to have a close range/anti-personnel weapon. Despite the fact
that Shiiro Amada hates mass destruction weapons like grenades and A.P.
guns, one can guess that he recommended this to be installed to ward off
human threats. The gunpod and the sensors are contained within the chest
and they can move around left and right @60 degrees and up and down @20
degrees. 60 degrees allows a good enough coverage of area. This sensor
also helps cover the blind spots of the head sensors.

The back pack for the EZ-8 kit is the parachute pack. It's used in episode
9 in the series. It's used for the RX79 [g] as well. The top is the
parachute portion, the bottom is the jet portion. There are 3 parachutes
contained within the top portion and 3 smaller guide chutes on the outside.
Once the guide chutes open, the container (top) will break apart and the
larger 3 parachutes inside will open up as well. The rocket portion is used
just before landing to reduce shock and is propelled around 1 second. The
Centor of the rocket portion is the payload and can be used to store weapons
as well. The belt strap attached to the rockets and gundam is about 21.5m,
and it's used for balance between the timing of landing and propelling.
