Technical and Historical Notes

 

Designed as a high-performance replacement for the MS-06J Zaku II Ground Combat Type, the ground combat MS-07B Gouf becomes famous during the One Year War at the hands of Zeon ace pilot Ramba Ral. Though his personal Gouf is technically a prototype (possibly the YMS-07B), the production model Gouf which comes off the assembly line shortly thereafter is identical. This fully-equipped production model B-type Gouf immediately follows a limited production run of A-type Goufs, which are produced without the built-in armaments of the standard B-types due to a parts shortage. The Gouf is armed with a five-fingered machine gun for a left hand and a deadly tentacle-like "heat rod" on its right arm, which can be used as either a superheated slicing weapon or a grappling weapon with an electric shock effect. The Gouf can also carry all of the standard Zaku hand armaments, notably the standard 120mm machine gun.

The Gouf proves to be a nasty menace to the crew and mobile suit pilots stationed aboard the Earth Federation Forces assault carrier White Base. RX-78-2 Gundam pilot Amuro Ray is easily overwhelmed during his first encounter with Ramba's Gouf, and in post-battle analysis Amuro tries to simulate the Gouf as an improved F-type Zaku. Unfortunately for the White Base crew, the Gouf is above and beyond anything they've encountered at that point in the war. The standard Gouf lives a short life itself, as production is quickly halted and the new ground combat MS-09 Dom goes into production. Though the Gouf's production run is short, units are deployed all across the world, including places such as Australia and the Gobi Desert. An improved version the MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom, sees action in Southeast Asia and Europe.
