Technical and Historical Notes

Designed for ground combat on Earth, the xvm-gz Defurse’s appearance differed radically from previous Vagan mobile suits. The powerful Defurse cannon provided it with heavy firepower, while its electromagnetic armor could withstand attack from the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal‘s DODS rifle. The environmental mismatch of being used in open space contributed to the Defurse’s eventual defeat. Nearly 50 years later, the Vagans deployed the improved mass production ovm-lce Reganner as part of their Earth invasion forces.
