Technical and Historical Notes

The Gwigsy was a small-scale colony defense and anti-riot mobile suit similar to other petite local defense suits like the RH-35E Draken E. However, unlike the humanoid Draken E, the Gwigsy’s design bore more of a resemblance to an RB-79 Ball with four limbs attached. Using these limbs, the Gwigsy covered terrain quickly by running across the ground like an animal. The Gwigsy’s sole armament was a machine cannon mounted on the top of the cockpit. Several Gwigsy units were used by Side 2’s Macedonia Colony to defend against an attack in UC 0153 from the Zanscare Empire. However, the Gwigsy proved completely inadequate against Zanscare’s new Einerad-equipped ZM-S24G Gedlav. Zanscare also used Gwigsys on the Moon to guard the area where the Motorad fleet was secretly under development.
