Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the early UC 0060s, the Republic of Zeon begins development of the space fighter Gobble. The Gobble features multiple weapon stations that can carry medium-range anti-ship missiles, or vulcan pods or large fuel tanks. It is also armed with six internal missile launchers on its wings, plus four short-range missiles on its landing skids. The Gobble is manned by a pilot and flight officer seated in a row. The Gobble is formally adopted in UC 0070, and by UC 0076, the Principality of Zeon has deployed 3,000 units. Gobbles are assigned to multiple Zeon ships, including the Chibe class, Gwazine class and the massive Dolos class. By the end of the One Year War, the Gobble has been superseded by mobile suits as Zeon's main fighting force. The remaining units are relegated to transport duty, delivering weapons and ammunition to mobile suits on the front lines. The later Gattle fighter has a similar design to the Gobble.
