The AMX-109 Kapool (colloquially referred to as "Ball" by both sides, but bearing no relationship to the RB-79 Ball of the Universal Century) is a mobile suit from the Correct Century timeline. It's the successor of the AMX-109 Capule from Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Kapool was developed to replace Axis' MSM-03C Hygogg and the AMX-109 Capule. It follows the footsteps of the Hygogg as an amphibious mobile suit, but is also capable of operating in space. Covered by two layers of Gundarium Alloy, it is highly resistant to attacks. By tucking its claws, pointing its feet backwards and transforming the body into a spherical shape, it can achieve maximized underwater capabilities.

Armaments

  • Laser Beam
  • Sonic Blast
  • Missile Launcher

  • 3-barreled machine cannon
A 3-barreled machine gun able to be mounted on either claw. These are the Kapool's most commonly used weapon in the show.

History

As the war with the Moonrace begins in CC 2345 on Earth's North America continent, Inglessa ruler Guin Sard Lineford directs miner Sid Munzer to search the mountain cycle for mobile suits. His search yields the AMX-109 Kapool, which becomes the first mobile suit used in mass numbers by the Inglessa Militia. Though the Kapool's ammunition is no match for advanced Moonrace mobile suits like the JMA-0530 WaDom, it is extremely effective against smaller mobile suits like the MRC-U11D WaD. Later, as the spaceship Willgem travels across the ocean in its journey to the Moon, pilot Sochie Heim discovers that the Kapool is actually designed for underwater combat.
