BESPA’s first transformable mobile suit/mobile armor, the “dual type” ZM-D11S Abigor was developed and deployed in the early days of the Zanscare War in UC 0153. Despite its large size, the Abigor made the best use of both its forms, achieving high speed and mobility in its mobile armor form while packing a large amount of fighting power in its mobile suit form. The Abigor was equipped with a variety of strange weapons, including a pair of hand-carried beam scythes that could be joined into a single, double-ended weapon which could be spun to act as a sort of impromptu beam shield. The Abigor also carried a pair of beam blade-generating beam katarls, as well as a large number of beam net generators, which could be deployed to create an entangling energy web over a large area. In mobile armor mode, the Abigor made good use of this three beam cutter weapon, which could be used at high speed to slice through enemy targets; the beam cutter blade on its back could also fire its beam energy at a target like a normal ranged weapon. Despite its mobility and combat effectiveness, however, the Abigor was deemed by BESPA’s test pilots to be rather unremarkable, and its development was soon abandoned. However, its design soon resurfaced in other forms, such as the amphibious ZMT-D15M Galguyu.
