Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Prototype Gogg was an experimental machine developed by the MIP company to fulfill the Principality of Zeon army's requirements for an amphibious mobile suit. Based on data gathered from the failed Zaku Marine prototypes, the MSM-03-1 featured a streamlined main body design that allowed it move through water with ease. Its use of internal weapons also helped its mobility in water. Unlike the production model, Prototype Gogg has more humanoid arms with only elbow part being flexible. It also feature more complex design for backpack and legs.
- Mega Particle Gun
- The MSM-03 Gogg is equipped a pair of mega particle guns, mounted in the center of the mobile suit's torso. Because of technological limits the Gogg's design called for the mobile suit to use the ocean as a natural heat sink to prevent the mobile suit's reactor from overheating. This limited the use of cannons as their high power requirements would quickly cause the reactor to overheat should the mobile suit stray from the water.
- Torpedo Launcher Pod
- Unlike the production model, Prototype Gogg has torpedo pod mount on its hand instead of built-in model.
The data gathered from the Prototype Gogg would be used to put the MSM-03 Gogg into mass production.
