Technical and Historical Notes

Near the end of the One Year War in UC 0079, the Principality of Zeon introduced the MS-14A Gelgoog as its final mass production mobile suit. The Gelgoog’s purpose was to achieve mobility and performance equal to or greater than the Earth Federation Forces’ RX-78-2 Gundam. The Gelgoog’s armaments included a beam rifle, shield and beam naginata. Prior to the Battle of A Baoa Qu, Living Dead Battalion pilot Fisher Ness sent out a distress call during a battle with the EFF’s Moore Brotherhood. Reinforcements arrived in the form of Gelgoogs equipped with specialized backpacks that mounted additional thrusters and propellant tanks. After the Moore Brotherhood was captured, Living Dead pilot Daryl Lorenz used one of these Gelgoogs in combat at A Baoa Qu. However, because both his arms had been amputated and replaced with prosthetics, he had trouble with the Gelgoog’s controls, which were designed for an able-bodied pilot.
