Technical and Historical Notes

A mass produced frontline mobile suit used by Neo Zeon during the Second Neo Zeon War (aka Char’s Rebellion), the AMS-119 Geara Doga could be considered a distant descendant of the old Principality of Zeon’s original mainstay unit, the MS-06F Zaku II. Although not exactly a high performance model, the Geara Doga was sturdy, dependable, and inexpensive to mass-produce. Typically armed with one of two different beam machine guns – a larger type mounting an optional grenade launcher, and a slightly smaller type equipped with a removable heat bayonet – a shield carrying four rocket-propelled grenades and four sturm faust weapons, and a beam sword-axe, the Geara Doga was well enough equipped for a typical grunt soldier. Though typically painted in olive drab-on-dark green colors, a handful of squad leaders and ace pilots were allowed to paint their units in custom colors and attach a squad leader’s antenna to the head, such as the blue-on-dark blue Geara Doga operated by ace pilot Rezin Schnyder. Multiple variants saw use both during Char’s Rebellion and afterward. By UC 0096, Full Frontal’s “Sleeves” faction of Neo Zeon used the AMS-129 Geara Zulu as their frontline mobile suit, but they continued to field Geara Dogas that had survived Char’s Rebellion. These units bore the distinctive sleeve decorations that gave the faction its nickname.
