Developed in the early AC 190s, OZ’s first amphibious mobile suit was the OZ-08MMS Cancer. The Cancer, despite its lack of legs, could operate underwater, changing into a submarine-like form for speed and maneuverability. Using hydrojet engines in its main body for propulsion, its maneuvering was handled by a ring of reversible side-spinning propeller blades on each arm. The arms also each mounted a large pincer-like claw, which could be used to grapple targets, and each claw contained a pair of torpedo launchers, giving the Cancer the ability to deliver a nasty blow to anything it grabbed. The general shape of the Cancer resembled its namesake, with “cancer” being the fourth Zodiac sign meaning “crab.”
