Technical and Historical Notes
The MMS-DS209 Guppy is a transformable underwater worker mobile suit. The Guppy is designed to transform into an alternate cruising mode for faster movement. In UC 0223, a Guppy is used by Mark Curran, a former CONSENT pilot working at the civilian Hydro-Gen underwater rig. Mark comes into contact with CONSENT again when a CCMS-03 Bugu falls out of orbit and crashes into the Pacific Ocean. Mark uses his Guppy to come to the pilot’s rescue and bring him to Hydro-Gen’s rig.
