Technical and Historical Notes

Introduced at the beginning of the First Neo Zeon War in UC 0088, the AMX-006 Gaza-D was a moderate improvement over Neo Zeon’s mass produced frontline model, the AMX-003 Gaza-C. As the Gaza-D’s basic construction and transformation sequence were practically the same as the Gaza-C’s, it was easy to mass produce, as the existing Gaza-C production lines at the Axis asteroid base were easily modified to facilitate production of the Gaza-D. At the outbreak of the war, the Gaza-D often complemented – and eventually replaced – its predecessor as one of Neo Zeon’s mainstay mobile suits. Although the Gaza-D was functionally the same as the Gaza-C, it was a better performer in terms of power output, speed and maneuverability. In addition to a pair of beam guns, two beam sabers, and its knuckle buster beam rifle, the Gaza-D was also equipped with various missile launchers in its shoulder binders for additional heavy firepower. The Gaza-D continued to be used by later Neo Zeon factions and participated in the defense of the Palau asteroid during the Laplace Incident of UC 0096.
