Technical and Historical Notes

 

Late during the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon military launches its "United Maintenance Plan" to upgrade and improve existing mobile suit designs and to make its own manufacturing capabilities more streamlined by incorporating similar parts and systems in several different mobile suit lines. This plan also serves to help mobile suit pilots easily make the transition from one type of mobile suit to another, as all of the suits produced under the United Maintenance Plan are similar to each other in terms of operation. One of the mobile suit types to be redesigned under this plan is the MS-14A Gelgoog, which only recently began production at Zeon's A Baoa Qu asteroid base in December UC 0079. The new MS-14JG Gelgoog Jäger (or simply "Gelgoog-J") is a serious step above anything else produced by Zeon at the time, incorporating more powerful rocket thrusters and additional verniers for added maneuverability. The increased thrust and fuel consumption is offset by a pair of large external propellant tanks mounted on the backpack. The Gelgoog Jäger also carries an improved and highly accurate beam machine gun, giving it the nickname "Gelgoog Sniper Type." However, due to its late introduction into the war, only a handful of Gelgoog Jägers are produced, with some operating in skirmishes against the Earth Federation Forces stationed in the Side 6 area.
