Technical and Historical Notes

With the outbreak of the Bloody Valentine War, ZAFT began a full-scale invasion of Earth. To meet the needs required by certain environments, ZAFT created many variants of their standard mobile suit ZGMF-1017 GINN. One such variation was the TMF/S-3 GINN OCHER (Operation Commando Hard Environment Reinforced) Type. This particular variant was specifically designed for use in harsh desert environments and featured parts designed to keep it from overheating or being clogged with sand. The OCHER Type’s armament consisted of a machine gun, rifle, heavy axe and a trio of smoke dispensers. The OCHER Type was used by Andrew Waltfeld’s forces in Africa as support units as well as for patrolling and defending occupied territories, such as the city of Banadiya.
