Technical and Historical Notes

In the last weeks of the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon introduced its last mass-produced mobile suit line, the MS-14A Gelgoog. Variants also appeared to fill specific mission roles, and one variant was the MS-14F Gelgoog Marine. Built exclusively for Zeon’s marine troops, the Gelgoog Marine featured improved thrusters, speed and maneuverability, as well as external propellant tanks to increase its range while offsetting the extra fuel used by its more powerful thrusters. The twin beam sword of the original Gelgoog was replaced with two standard beam sabers, and a 110mm machine cannon was mounted on each forearm. The original Gelgoog’s large and burdensome shield was replaced with a modified MS-06F-2 Zaku II F2 shoulder shield, called a “knuckle shield,” which could be used as a punching weapon. With its good cost performance, the Gelgoog Marine was perhaps the most heavily mass-produced Gelgoog variant built, with many units surviving the war. The Gelgoog Marine was operated by the Zeon remnant Cima Fleet, and some units were eventually captured by the Earth Federation Forces and deployed as aggressor units for pilot training and mobile suit field tests.
