Technical and Historical Notes

 

The MA-05R Big Ruf is an attack version of the MA-05 Bigro that carries large weapon payloads, similar to the MSM-07Di Ze'Gok. Three units, converted from existing MA-05 machines, are rolled out in early December UC 0079 at the Zeon space fortress A Baoa Qu. The Big Rufs are outfitted with modified versions of the 100-meter-long anti-ship missiles utilized to defend the fortress. The units are equipped with extra booster units to compensate for the added weight of the anti-ship missiles. One unit is piloted during testing by Robert Gilliam, and eventually all three Big Rufs are destroyed in combat.
