Technical and Historical Notes

Another mobile suit developed in anticipation of their assault on Earth during the First Neo Zeon War, Neo Zeon’s AMX-101 Galluss-J was a slightly less impressive performer than the AMX-009 Dreissen. However, the ease of its manufacture led the Galluss-J to see at least limited production on Neo Zeon’s frontlines. Intended to work in concert with the AMX-102 Zssa, the Galluss-J was well suited to urban combat and cleanup operations following a target area’s bombardment. In addition to a light ranged armament of missiles and a handheld energy gun, the Galluss-J was good for hand-to-hand combat, as its hands could launch outward to deliver extra kinetic force to its punches. The fingers of the Galluss-J’s left hand were also equipped with small-caliber machine guns inside them. One of the earliest Galluss-J units built was employed by Neo Zeon officer Mashymre Cello, who attempted to ferret out the refugee AEUG flagship Argama from its hiding place inside Side 1’s Shangri-La Colony. Neo Zeon also developed an artillery variant, the AMX-101K Galluss-K. Several Galluss-J and Galluss-K units were used by Zeon remnants in an attack on Australia’s Torrington Base in UC 0096. Soon after, Neo Zeon fielded another customized variant, the AMX-101E Schuzrum-Galluss, in an attack on Londo Bell in space.
