Technology & Combat Characteristics
Similar to the Zaku II and Rick Dom, some Gelgoogs were modified into MS-14A Gelgoog [Stutzer] versions by remnants of the Zeon forces, as they no longer had any production capabilities for new mobile suit designs. The Gelgoog "Stutzer" was enhanced with winch units, which launch wire-guided arm parts that could entangle enemy machines with wire, or throw hand grenades at them while the mobile suit itself remained hidden. Additionally, the Stutzer feature extra armor that almost completely covers its upper body, and has the old backpack replaced with special parts. These extra parts contain supplemental thrusters and a propellant tank to increase its mobility.
- Winch Unit
- Missile Pod
- A basic arm-mounted defense armament for many mobile suits. The shield is a thick sheet of armor designed to take severe punishment that would normally destroy a mobile suit. Since the introduction of beam weaponry, shields are treated with an anti-beam coating to withstand several beam shots before the coating wears off. Typically physical shields can only take so much damage before they succumb to the pressure and break.
- Wire Cutters
- MNG-110 Beam Rifle
- A large beam rifle specially designed for long range attack, it features a powerful, re-loadable cooling system which enables it to emit rapid-fire beam bursts.
- Ex-T2-2 Beam Bazooka
- A weapon originally developed for the MS-09R Rick Dom. The bazooka has its own internal reactor, rather than an E-cap, and is, essentially, a Musai deck gun scaled down for mobile suit use. Due to using a reactor rather than an E-cap, the bazooka is capable of a single sustained blast or several short bursts, requiring a lengthy recharge period of approximately 10 minutes before it can be used again.
