The MS-13 Gatsha was part of Zeon’s Pezun Project at the Pezun asteroid base. This suit was partially based on the MSM-07 Z’Gok, as can be seen in the claws and body design. The Gatsha was designed as a multi-purpose successor to the Z’Gok. The Gatsha’s back featured anti-ground sensors in the shape of a V. The Gatsha’s armaments consisted of two 180mm 4-tube missile launchers mounted on the soldiers, as well as a special hammer gun, which was Zeon’s answer to the RX-78-2 Gundam‘s Gundam Hammer.
