Late in the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon rolled out its final mass production mobile suit, the MS-14A Gelgoog. In order to combat the varied and harsh environments on the Earth, the MS-14D Desert Gelgoog was created for use in desert and tropical locations. The cooling systems were upgraded to deal with the extreme heat and dust sealing was performed on the body. The Desert Gelgoog was equipped with a scope for use during travel or for hiding in the sand to prepare an ambush. The Desert Gelgoog was armed with a beam rifle and armed buster, but it lacked the twin beam sword used by the standard Gelgoog. The Desert Gelgoog entered the war too late to be mass produced, but remnants of the Zeon military continued to operate in Africa after the war’s end. Those remnants used the Desert Gelgoog as late as UC 0096 during an attack on Australia’s Torrington Base.
