Technical and Historical Notes

A mobile suit used by the Oldsmobile Army in the early UC 0120s, the OMS-07RF RF Gouf closely resembled the MS-07B Gouf used by the old Principality of Zeon during the One Year War in UC 0079. The RF Gouf (“RF” being short for “ReFined”), despite its antiquated appearance, is actually contemporary in its internal design, and the unique armament of the original Gouf was also brought up to modern standards. The rod built into its right forearm, rather than being a superheated and electrical shocking weapon, was now equipped with a beam field emitter in its tip, making the RF Gouf’s heat rod a much deadlier slicing and piercing weapon. Conventional firepower was also improved with the addition of a set of four vulcan guns in the head, complementing the 5-fingered left machine gun hand. Due to its construction and performance similarities to the OMS-06RF RF Zaku, pilots of the RF Gouf could easily adapt to operating an RF Zaku or vice versa.
