Technology & Combat Characteristics
The AMX-101K Galluss-K is a derivative model of the AMX-101 Galluss-J. While the frames are mostly the same there are differences with the weaponry. The left hand finger launchers on the left hand have been replaced with a standard manipulator hand that mirrors the right. In its place a type of launcher has been mounted on the left forearm. Additionally the missile launchers in the left shoulder have been removed in favor of a beam cannon, which is a modified version of the knuckle buster used by the AMX-008 Ga-Zowmn, mounted over the left shoulder. With the beam cannon the Galluss-K is better suited as an artillery unit that provides fire-support.
- Beam Cannon
- The AMX-101K Galluss-K is equipped with a single shoulder-mounted beam cannon, which is a modified version of the Hyper Knuckle Buster used by the AMX-008 Ga-Zowmn. Its long-range firing capabilities allow the Galluss-K to compete with the Federation's MSA-005K Guncannon Detecter. The cannon has enough power to melt a path through heavy tank armor.
- 3-tube Grenade Launcher
- Mounted on the Galluss-K's forearm is a grenade launcher to help destroy or heavily damage mobile suits and light-armored targets.
- 2-tube Rocket Launcher
- A weapon borrowed from the MS-06K Zaku Cannon, it is carried by the right hand. As the name suggest, this weapon launches rocket-propelled explosives.
It is unknown exactly when the AMX-101K Galluss-K was designed. It could have been an unfinished design left over from the First Neo Zeon War that Zeon Remnants took the time and energy to build, or it could have been an AMX-101 Galluss-J that was repaired and modified after the war.
In early May 0096 U.C., an AMX-101K Galluss-K is seen deployed by the Zeon remnants, along with other old Zeon mobile suits to attack the Federation Torrington Base. The Galluss-K is later destroyed when the Federation forces regrouped and launched a counterattack on the Zeon remnant forces.
