The RGM-89S Proto Stark Jegan was a prototype mobile suit built as a mid-range fire support unit. The overall performance was greatly increased over the standard RGM-89 Jegan. The Proto Stark Jegan’s legs were fitted with additional armor, and new armaments were incorporated across the body, including a pair of machine guns and two sets of missile launchers. The large missile launcher was capable of mounting a nuclear warhead. The Proto Stark Jegan could also carry a bazooka or beam rifle. The Proto Stark Jegan’s mobility was slower with the additional armor and armaments, but if necessary, they could be ejected. The Proto Stark Jegan was utilized by the Earth Federation Forces’ Londo Bell task force during the Laplace Incident in UC 0096, alongside the standard production RGM-89S Stark Jegan.
