Neo Zeon’s elite Royal Guard squadron, charged with the protection of their leader Haman Karn, operated a handful of customized mobile suits during the First Neo Zeon War. One of these units, Nee Gylen’s AMX-117R Gaz-R, was modeled after the Earth Federation Forces’ mass-produced RMS-117 Galbaldy-β. With a more powerful reactor and armament geared to melee combat, the Gaz-R was highly distinguished by its eye-catching blue-on-white paint scheme and the large, flared armor on its right shoulder. Designed to operate in tandem with its twin, Lance Gylen’s AMX-117L Gaz-L, the Gaz-R typically escorted either Haman’s AMX-004 Qubeley or Royal Guard leader Chara Soon’s AMX-015 Geymalk on its left flank. After the war, Neo Zeon remnants fielded a variant, the AMX-117RG Gaz-R Grau.
