The QEX-04M Aegir was a prototype underwater beam weapon designed by the Principality of Zeon for use by the MS-06M Zaku Marine Type. The firing of beam weapons underwater was hindered by the collision of beam particles with water molecules and the risk of a steam explosion. The Aegir was intended to circumvent this problem by firing a plasma beam that was electromagnetically decelerated to subsonic speed. The Aegir had an effective firing range of 2,000 meters and a maximum range of 2,800 meters. Although the Aegir had its own propulsion system, it could not operate on its own without the Zaku Marine Type. Due to its poor mobility and lack of defensive armaments, the Aegir never moved past the test stage.
