Technology & Combat Characteristics
The MS-14BR Gelgoog A Baoa Qu Battle Type was essentially a Gelgoog High Mobility Type equipped with more powerful thruster packs, greatly increasing its speed and mobility. The Gelgoog A Baoa Qu Battle Type was equipped with a twin-bladed beam saber, a high-output beam rifle, and a bazooka.
- Twin Beam Sword
- The twin beam sword, also called the Beam Naginata, is the Gelgoog's weapon in close-range melee combat. The beam sword operates by generating a beam of plasma contained and shaped by an I-field. Because of the heat of the plasma the beam sword can cut through any alloy. The Gelgoog's twin beam sword is unique in that it has a longer than average handle, about the length of two beam saber hilts, and has an emitter at both ends, allowing a single weapon to create two beam blades. When not in use it is stored in a back mounted recharge rack.
- RA-2 Beam Cannon
- Beam Rifle
- The technology of the rifle allows the weapon to fire compressed mega particles in the form of a beam which has the power to penetrate all but the specially treated materials. The beam loses power as it travels so if a target is too far away, although the beam may still it, it may have lost the power needed to penetrate the armor.
- 3-tube Missile Launcher
- 4-tube Missle Launcher
Designed for improved mobility, with leg armor removed and larger thrusters installed. Due to its resemblance to the MS-06R series, it's informally known as the "Gelgoog R". Two machines were remodeled in Zimmad's factories, and delivered to the Chimaera fleet along with spare parts that were used to upgrade a third unit. Although it looks like the beam rifle is attached to the backpack, this is actually just a storage rack, and the beam rifle, which sports a cooling jacket and grenade launcher, is hand-held when in use. The Gelgoog R was assigned to the elite Chimera Corps and participating in the Battle of A Baoa Qu at the end of the war.
