Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the One Year War is coming to an end, the Principality of Zeon steps up development of a new generation of high-performance mobile suits in a last-ditch act of desperation. Zeonic Company begins development of its powerful MS-14 Gelgoog line, and in response, Zimmad Company designs its own next-generation mobile suit. Codenamed the YMS-15 Gyan, Zimmad's latest entry is intended to complement its already well-performing MS-09R Rick Dom space combat suits. The Gyan's development is supervised by Zeon's M'quve, and he takes one of the three YMS-15 prototypes built as his personal mobile suit. However, the Gyan only sees combat once at Side 5's Texas Colony, as M'quve uses his unit in a one-on-one fight against the Federation Forces' powerful RX-78-2 Gundam prototype - and loses. With Rick Doms to provide the heavy long-range firepower, the Gyan is built with close combat in mind. Its primary weapon is a powerful beam sword, backed up by a large shield containing 56 individual missile launchers and carrying various bombs and space mines. Despite its high performance as a close combat unit, the Zeon military favors the more well-rounded Gelgoog - particularly since the Gelgoog incorporates the long-range firepower the Gyan lacks - and the Gyan project is dropped.
