The greatest difficulty for the remnants of the Principality of Zeon’s forces was securing resources, particularly mobile suits, and since they had no production capabilities the mobile suits they currently possessed represented their last remaining fighting strength. As the Titans who hunted them continued to deploy new machines on the frontlines, they found themselves at a dramatic disadvantage in terms of both quality and quantity. To address this situation, many Zeon remnants applied their own independent modifications to enhance the performance of their mobile suits. The Stutzer series were among the customized machines. (Stutzer is a German word meaning a fop, a dandy, or a fancy dresser.) The winch unit used by the Stutzer series consisted of a detachable wire-guided arm which is launched on rails. The mobile suits themselves were equipped with wire cutters on their heads and chests, which prevented their sensors from being damaged by their own wires. Operating data from the custom machines used by Zeon remnants was covertly relayed to forces like Axis, and incorporated in the development of their new mobile suits. The winch unit used by the Stutzer series, which launched wire-guided arm parts, was a weapon which could be operated even by ordinary pilots who weren’t Newtypes. This device could entangle enemy machines with wire, or throw hand grenades at them while the mobile suit itself hid behind an asteroid, making it ideal for guerilla tactics in shoal areas.

The MS-14A Gelgoog [Stutzer] was an enhanced custom version of the Gelgoog, whose performance was improved to resist Titans mobile suits. The main goal of its remodeling was increased thrust. The extra parts on its shoulders almost completely covered its upper body, and its backpack was replaced with special parts. Because these extra parts contained supplemental thrusters and propellant, the Gelgoog [Stutzer] had far greater mobility than a standard Gelgoog. Attached to its back were two wire-guided remote-controlled arms known as winch units, unique devices developed by Zeon remnants which made it ideal for guerilla warfare.
