Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following their invasion and occupation of many areas of Earth during the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon military begins developing amphibious mobile suits to increase its war capabilities in Earth's oceans and waterways. One of the most successful designs is the MSM-07 Z'Gok, though MIP Company continues to improve this model. This upgraded model is called the MSM-07E Z'Gok Experiment, and while similar to its predecessor, it features many improvements, the most visible being the ability to draw its arms and legs up closer into its body, making the Z'Gok Experiment more streamlined and faster while moving underwater. Propellant storage for its thrusters are moved from its main body into tanks mounted inside the arms, with energy caps installed in the hand-mounted beam guns, making them able to store up power from the generator and discharge a rapid-fire, machine gun-like burst when required. With this increase in handy firepower for both underwater and land combat, the original missile tubes mounted in the head - which can only be fired out of the water - are replaced with torpedo tubes, giving it additional firepower while operating underwater. Only a limited number of these experimental units are built, with one unit operated by Zeon's Cyclops team special forces unit in a raid on the Earth Federation Forces' Arctic base in December UC 0079.
