Technical and Historical Notes

 

With the serious problems encountered in the attempt to develop an atmospheric flight-capable mobile suit during the One Year War, the Zeon military halts its program to actively develop a flying mobile suit. However, the idea continues to linger, and experimental units still occasionally find their way into the field for testing. The eighth incarnation of the MS-07H Gouf Flight Type is the MS-07H-8, which is equipped with an improved backpack and more powerful thrusters and thermonuclear jet engines. Aerodynamic control surface wings are added to the backpack and waist armor, giving the Gouf Flight Type more stability in flight. Unfortunately, the H-8 still suffers some of the same problems encountered by previous versions: engine overheating and rapid fuel consumption at high altitudes and high speeds, limiting its range and flight time.
