When the Principality of Zeon Zeon military began field testing of its MS-14S Gelgoog Commander Type mobile suits during the last weeks of the One Year War, it was already hard at work on variants of the powerful new Gelgoog line. One of the first variants to be produced was the MS-14B Gelgoog High Mobility Type, which was essentially a standard Gelgoog equipped with a more powerful booster backpack, greatly increasing its speed and mobility. Twelve of the original 25 MS-14Ss were modified into this B-type during field testing by the Ace Corps, which include Zeon’s famous “Crimson Lightning” ace pilot, Johnny Ridden. When the Gelgoog line went into mass production, an additional 55 B-type Gelgoogs were produced, participating in the Battle of A Baoa Qu at the end of the war.
