The MS-15A Gyan Mass Production Type is a mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam Gihren’s Greed video game series.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
A mass production variant of the YMS-15 Gyan formally adopted as the next mainstay MS. The head sensor has been eliminated to ensure production efficiency. The Gyan Mass Production Type retains the basic performance and excellent close-combat capabilities of the prototype Gyan. Gyan Mass Production Type units assigned to ace pilots such as Robert Gilliam have the "MS-15S" designation instead.
- Beam Sword
- The primary weapon of the Gyan Masss Production Type, the beam sword has a higher output than the Earth Federation Forces' beam sabers, and is specialized for slashing and piercing/stabbing attack. Resembling a medieval knight's sword, the beam sword use Minovsky particles held in place by an I-Field to form an effective cutting surface that can slice through nearly any material.
- Missile Shield
- A large circular shield that not only defend the mobile suit from beam weapons, but also has offensive capabilities in the form of needle missiles and hide bombs stored within. However, the storing of weapons does lower the shield's defensive capabilities, making it weaker than other standard mobile suit-use shields.
- Needle Missile
- The missile shield stores 60 needle missiles. Due to their small size, the needle missiles are not very powerful and are mainly used to restrain enemy's movement or for intimidation purposes. These missiles can however still be quite deadly when fired in massed volleys.
- Hide Bomb
- A type of space mine (space version of the naval mine), 25 of them are stored in the missile shield. The hide bombs freely floats around in space once deployed, damaging any Mobile Suit that come near them.
Although the original Gyan was planned for mass-production, the One Year War ended before the production line was ready. The mass-produced version was only seen in a What-If scenario of the Mobile Suit Gundam Gihren’s Greed video game.
