Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the Principality of Zeon invaded and conquered many corners of Earth during the One Year War, Zeonic Company engineered were hard at work on a new ground combat mobile suit to supplement and replace the aging MS-06J Zaku II. The first prototype of this new model was the YMS-07A Prototype Gouf, which was essentially a redesigned Zaku with more efficient use of equipment and space, making it lighter and more maneuverable than the Zaku. The Gouf was intended to mount fixed weapons - specifically a 5-barreled 75mm machine gun hand and a tentacle heat rod - but these weapons weren't ready at this early stage of production and didn't appear until the second production unit, the MS-07B. A second prototype unit, the YMS-07B, incorporated additional thrusters in the legs, giving the Prototype Gouf the ability to make jet-assisted jumps.
