Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, the Zeon military attempts to develop an atmospheric flight-capable mobile suit to complement its ground-based mobile suit forces. The first prototype model developed under this program is the MS-07H Gouf Flight Test Type, but during its scheduled two-week test flight schedule, one problem after another arises, and the Goufs are redesigned and rebuilt in the field. After four weeks of delays and botched test flights, the MS-07H-4 piloted by Frank Bernhardt, is equipped with a set of new high-performance jet engines. However, after 10 days of test flights in the new model, the H-4-type experiences engine problems and explodes in mid-air, killing Bernhardt. Zeon's flight-type mobile suit development program is then immediately cancelled. However, despite the program's cancellation, some modifications continue to be made in the field, with the final MS-07H-8 seeing action in Southeast Asia.
