Technical and Historical Notes
Another early design produced by OZ, the OZ-07AMS Aries was built expressly for aerial combat. Mounting a pair of large jet engine housings on its shoulders and aerodynamic control surfaces, the Aries (named after the first Zodiac sign meaning "ram") was fully capable of independent atmospheric flight. It was also OZ's first variable mobile suit/jet fighter, as its legs deployed for walking and folded up into its body for flight. The Aries could also be loaded with a limited number of chain rifles and missile pods on its external wing hardpoints.
