Technical and Historical Notes

 

Intended to be a replacement for the aging MS-06JC Zaku II (J Type), the ground combat MS-07B Gouf proves effective in close combat, but is limited by its lack of long-range weapons. Production of the Gouf is soon halted when the Zimmad Company produces the popular ground-skimming MS-09 Dom. However, some pilots prefer the Gouf, and limited development of that model continues at Side 3. A flight-capable Gouf is finally perfected in the form of the MS-07H-8, and parts from that model are used to produce a high-performance upgrade of the standard ground model. This high-performance upgrade is called the MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom, which has the same capabilities as its MS-07B predecessor but enables it to be more effective in long-range combat. The original 5-fingered machine gun left hand is replaced by a normal manipulator hand, and instead a 3-barrel 35mm machine gun can be mounted on the left forearm. The original thick tentacle heat rod, somewhat limited in length, is replaced with a magnetic grappler mounted on a thin cable, allowing the right forearm to store a much greater length of heat wire and giving the weapon a much greater reach. Another major improvement is the option of a 75mm Gatling gun on its shield, which can be ejected at a moment's notice when the heavy weapon runs out of ammo or becomes a burden in close combat. The Gouf Custom proves to be an excellent unit, with one of these rare mobile suits operated by Norris Packard out of Zeon's Southeast Asian research base. Two units are also used by the Midnight Fenrir team at the assault on Jaburo and later at the defense of the California Base.
