The Gelgoog Marine (ゲルググM(マリーネ))is a late variant of the mass-produced MS-14A Gelgoog. It first appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.

Technology and Combat Characteristics

The Gelgoog Marine is variant of the base A-type Gelgoog that was designed to be an overall more effective mobile suit while reducing production costs at the same time. To make the Gelgoog Marine maneuverable, numerous thrusters and extra propellant tanks were added to the suit. In order to cut costs, the Gelgoog's large Zulu-like shield was replaced with a "knuckle shield" taken from a modified Zaku II shoulder shield. The Gelgoog Marine could also carry a 90mm machine gun instead of a beam rifle.

Armaments

  • 110mm Machine Cannon
One of the new features of the Gelgoog marine are a pair of 110mm machine cannons that are mounted in the forearms, one cannon per arm. These projectile firing weapons are highly effective against most mobile suit armor at close range.
  • Beam Saber
Unlike most Gelgoogs made during the One Year War the Gelgoog Marine is equipped with two beam sabers (instead of the twin beam saber) for close-combat uses. The beam saber is a small cylindrical device held in the mobile suit's hands when operated and is powered by an energy capacitor that is recharged from special racks. The beam saber is capable of cutting through any metal that has not been treated with anti-beam coating.
  • Knuckle Shield
The knuckle shield is a modified Zaku II shoulder shield that mounts on the left arm. When mounted on the forearm the curve of the armor fits over the mobile suits hand. One of the modifications is the additions of three spikes placed on the plate that rests in front of the hand. These spikes make the knuckle shield an effective bashing weapon.
  • MMP-80/90mm Ver.8 Machine Gun
The upgrade of the standard MMP-78 120mm. It used 90mm bullets instead of 120mm type, allows for a greater speed of firing and a higher rate of penetration. The machine gun is magazine-fed with 32 rounds per mag.

Special Equipment & Features

  • External propellant tanks
Gelgoog Marine's upgraded thrusters although allow it to attain incredibly high acceleration, they consume fuel at a high rate. To compensate, the Gelgoog Marine can be equipped with a pair of back-mounted external propellant tanks which substantially increase the amount of fuel it can carry, thus increasing the mobile suits operational flight time. When the fuel is depleted, the tanks can be ejected to decrease mass.

History

After deploying their new Gelgoog at the Battle of A Baoa Qu, the Principality of Zeon decided to create mission specific variants of the Gelgoog, similar to that of the old MS-06 Zaku II. To that end, they created the Gelgoog Marine, or the Gelgoog F-Type specifically for Zeon's elite marine corps.

Many Gelgoog Marines were produced, and most ended up in the hands of Cima Garahau and her notorious Cima Fleet while others were captured by the Earth Federation and used as aggressor units for rookie pilots.
