A Gundam is a mobile suit, and is usually either a
(1)Heavy combat mobile suit
(2)Prototype for other MS

Mobile Armors are large attack craft that can't be classified as a
ship(Since they usually carry only one person) or a mobile suit(Since they
don't have humanoid shapes)hence the name. Mobile Armors are mostly
one-of-a-kind. Sometimes the line between mobile armor and mobile suit can
be blurred; for example the dendorium from 0083 and the multiple
transforming MS from Z gundam. MAs also are capable of devastating entire
fleets, for instance the Byg Zam makes a pretty big mess at Solomon.

What is the difference between a Mobile Suit, a Gundam, and a Mobile Armor?
