Technical and Historical Notes

 

A prototype mobile suit intended for mass production, Anaheim Electronics' RGZ-91 Re-GZ is a simplified version of the AEUG's MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam used in the Gryps Conflict and the First Neo Zeon War. The Re-GZ (short for "REfined Gundam Zeta") eliminates the costly and complex transformation systems used by the Zeta Gundam, instead docking with a specialized "Back Weapon System" (or "BWS") unit which allows the Re-GZ to assume a waverider-like form for additional mobility. As the mobile suit's weapons can't be used in this docked configuration, the BWS is armed with beam weapons and missile launchers, giving the Re-GZ considerable firepower in waverider mode. In the end, however, the Re-GZ is still be deemed too expensive to facilitate mass-production, and the design project is dropped. The Re-GZ prototype ends up being employed by the Federation Forces' Londo Bell task force during the Second Neo Zeon War in UC 0093, piloted first by renown Newtype ace Amuro Ray, and later by mobile suit squadron leader Kayra Su. A second unit is in service on the Londo Bell flagship Ra Cailum during the Laplace Incident of UC 0096. The original Re-GZ also serves as the inspiration for another Londo Bell suit in use during the same period: the fully transformable RGZ-95 ReZEL.
