The MS-07H-4 Gouf Flight Test Type is a mobile suits from the series MSV.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The MS-07H-4 Gouf Flight Test Type did prove capable of achieving atmospheric flight, however the design was also discovered to be severely flawed. As Zeon further tested the Gouf Flight Test Type, they constantly reworked the design, updating and rebuilding the unit in the field to overcome the problems they encountered, resulting in the MS-07H-4 Gouf Flight Test Type. But despite the changes, the design was still found to be highly flawed.

Armaments

  • 5-barrel 75mm Machine Gun
Similar to the MS-07H Gouf Flight Test Type, both of H-4 model's manipulators are replaced by five-barrel 75mm machine guns which are shaped like enlarged fingers. The machine gun hand fires physical rounds at a rapid rate and possesses enough firepower to destroy lightly armored mobile suits with ease. However its effectiveness against heavy armor is very limited. Like its MS-07H predecessor, both MS-07H-4's five-barrel machine guns are magazine-fed at the forearms for better ammunition capacity.

History

After four weeks, test-flight accidents left only one Gouf Flight Type functional. This unit would be equipped with a new set of higher-performance engines and thrusters and it was assigned a new model number, MS-07H-4 Gouf Flight Test Type, to reflect the change in design. However, on its tenth day of flight testing with the new engines, the Gouf Flight Test Type experienced massive engine failure and exploded in mid-air, killing test pilot Frank Bellnarl. Following the accident, Zeon's official flight-type mobile suit development programs were all immediately cancelled.

However, despite official cancellations, a few clandestine and unofficial programs were still underway to create a mobile suit that was capable of atmospheric flight. One of these programs eventually created the MS-07H-8 Gouf Flight Type, a relative success compared to the earlier models of flight-capable Goufs.
