Technical and Historical Notes

One of the few BESPA mobile weapons to be built especially for use by Newtypes, the ZMT-S28S Gengaozo was equipped with the venerable psycommu system used in Newtype weapons since the One Year War of UC 0079. In the Gengaozo’s case, its psycommu system allowed the pilot to remote control the mobile suit’s Back Engine Unit, which was a combination sub-flight system and remote weapon. The Back Engine Unit mounted five multiple beam launcher weapons. These weapons could be used as the Gengaozo’s primary armament while it was mounted on the mobile suit, or while being operated via remote control, and be used for sneak attacks or diversionary raids. In the case of loss of the Back Engine Unit, or its not having been retrieved yet, the Gengaozo was armed with fairly standard weapons for itself: a beam rifle, two beam shields and a pair of beam sabers which also doubled as beam maces. Only one Gengaozo test unit was known to have existed; piloted by the highly skilled (yet psychologically unstable) Newtype ace Fuala Griffon.
