In preparation for its planned assault on the Earth Federation Forces’ underground South American Jaburo military headquarters during the One Year War, the Zeon military forces stationed at California Base developed a series of specialized mobile suits to aid in the assault. One of these was the MSM-04G Juaggu, an amphibious unit designed to provide medium-range fire support for other mobile suits engaged in close combat. Loosely based on the MSM-04 Acguy design, the Juaggu mounted a pair of 3-barrel 320mm rocket launchers for hands, although these could be changed out for normal humanoid-type hands in needed. However, the Juaggus built at California Base were never deployed, as Char Aznable discovered the secret spacedock entrance to Jaburo long before the scheduled assault, and launched a hasty attack with what limited resources he received from California Base in time. Nearly 20 years after the One Year War, a modified Juaggu was used by Zeon remnants in an attack on the Earth Federation capital at Dakar in UC 0096.
