Technical and Historical Notes

 

As tensions increase between the Naturals of the Earth Alliance and the Coordinators of ZAFT, military development also continues. Whereas the Alliance concentrates on mobile armors like the TS-MA2 Moebius, ZAFT instead develops the first humanoid mobile suit in C.E. 69, the ZGMF-1017 GINN. The GINN is vastly superior to the Moebius, as illustrated by the poor performance of the Moebius line in most conflicts following the GINN's introduction. The GINN's basic armament consists of a 76mm machine gun and a heavy sword, but it can also be equipped with a wide variety of weapons for specific combat scenarios. These optional weapons include leg-mounted missile launchers, handheld missile launchers and a heavy particle cannon. As a general purpose mass-produced suit, the GINN is deployed by ZAFT in space as well as on Earth. Because of the versatility of its design, ZAFT creates many variants based on the basic GINN design. The GINN (and its many variants) are so widely produced that many units are salvaged or otherwise acquired by mercenaries, the Junk Guild or private citizens. In July C.E. 71, ZAFT begins rolling out the new mass production model ZGMF-600 GuAIZ to replace the aging GINN.
