Technical and Historical Notes

 

The QCX-76A Jormungand is a super-large fusion plasma gun developed by the 603rd Technical Evaluation Unit on the Jotunheim. At 231 meters, the Jormungand is nearly the same length as a Musai class ship. The Jormungand’s estimated maximum firing range is 2,000 kilometers, but its effective firing range is only 300 kilometers. The Jormungand is incapable of independent movement and must be assembled on site before it can be used. It is operated by a gunner who relies on observational data from nearby ships. The Jormungand makes its combat debut at the Battle of Loum in January UC 0079, but it is completely ignored by the Zeon hierarchy, which has instead chosen to rely on mobile suits for the battle. Gunner Aleksandro Hemme tries to fire the Jormungand with only visual data, and in the three shots fired manages to destroy a Magellan class ship before being killed by return fire. After the battle, weapons like the Jormungand are swept away as the age of mobile suit warfare begins.
