The MS-14C-1A Gelgoog Cannon was a custom unit piloted by Jacobius Node, a member of Zeon’s elite Chimaira Corps. Based on the standard MS-14C, it was equipped with a beam rifle, giant bazooka, missile launcher and missile pod. In December UC 0079, the Chimaira Corps conducted tests of several MS-14 models, including the MS-14C-1A. Node retained possession of the Gelgoog Cannon after the One Year War and continued to use it after founding the private military company Themis. By UC 0090, the Gelgoog Cannon was modernized with a linear seat cockpit and panoramic monitor. In keeping with Node’s fighting style as a sniper, the suit’s main weapon was a long-range beam rifle. For targeting, the suit equipped a special visor with a three-kind scope used by the MS-06E-3 Zaku Flipper. Node used his custom unit in several engagements as multiple factions attempted to chase down the secret of the Minaret.
