Before the Principality of Zeon’s new mass produced MS-14A Gelgoog went into production – pending the completion of Zeon’s beam weapon technology research – 30 test units of the Gelgoog line were put into service in October UC 0079. Assigned the model number MS-14S (originally YMS-14), 29 of these test Gelgoogs were given to Zeon’s elite Ace Corps for trials and field testing in the Corregidor Shoal Zone before actual mass production began. The 30th MS-14S was assigned to Zeon ace pilot Char Aznable (and painted in his distinctive red color scheme), who used his Gelgoog in combat for the first time against the Earth Federation Forces’ powerful RX-78-2 Gundam mobile suit inside the abandoned Texas Colony at Side 5. Following the Corregidor testing, the rest of the prototypes were also put into combat.
