Technical and Historical Notes

 

By the middle of the One Year War, rumors of the Earth Federation Forces' development of its own mobile suits reach the Principality of Zeon's ears. Although the development of Zeon's own mobile suit technology continues, the appearance of the Federation's powerful, beam rifle-carrying RX-78-2 Gundam creates a sudden change in plans. An in-development, high-performance mobile suit called the MS-11 Gelgoog is suddenly cancelled, as the Zeon military wants to incorporate hand-carried beam armaments into new mobile suits. With the MS-11 model number having been reassigned to the Pezun Project's Act Zaku, the Gelgoog project is restarted under the model number MS-14, with the new goal being the ability for the Gelgoog to use energy cap-based weapons. After 30 experimental MS-14S units complete field testing and Zeon's beam rifle technology has been perfected, the mass produced MS-14A quickly goes into production and deployment.

Intended as a replacement for the aging MS-06F Zaku II as a primary front line unit, the MS-14A Gelgoog is a high-performance mobile suit, arguably as powerful as - if not more powerful than - the Federation's Gundam. Well-suited for both terrestrial and space combat, the Gelgoog sports a large beam rifle, forearm-mounted jet engine thrusters for added maneuverability, and a twin beam sword. Unfortunately for Zeon, the introduction of the Gelgoog is a case of too little, too late. Only 165 units are produced and put into combat by the last day of the war at the Battle of A Baoa Qu on 31 December UC 0079, mostly piloted by novice pilots and fresh recruits who can't use their powerful new Gelgoogs effectively against veteran Federation pilots in the less powerful mass produced RGM-79 GM. It is often argued that, had Zeon managed to put the Gelgoog into production even only two months earlier, the outcome of the One Year War may have been turned in Zeon's favor. However, the Gelgoog units that did survive the war are utilized for many years to come, either in their original configuration or as the updated Neo Zeon MS-14J ReGelgu.
