Part submarine and part mobile suit, the MAM-07 Grublo was one of the earliest mobile armor designs used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War. Designed for underwater combat, the Grublo mounted both torpedo launchers for ship-to-ship or ship-to-shore assaults, and surface-to-air missiles to fight off airborne targets. One prototype Grublo unit was deployed as part of Char Aznable’s Mad Angler unit and was piloted by Jukon class submarine captain Flanagan Boone against the Earth Federation Forces assault carrier White Base, causing severe damage to that ship during its journey across the Atlantic Ocean to South America. In August UC 0080, a Grublo used by Zeon remnants was destroyed in battle against the RX-78AL Atlas Gundam.
