The MSM-07N Ram Z'Gok is a mobile suit from the Universal Century time-line. It first appeared as a part of the MSV-R line and later in the MSV-R: The Return of Johnny Ridden manga series.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Although the original Z'Gok is regarded as one of Zeon's best amphibious mobile suits of the One Year War, it still had one very severe flaw. When used in an anti-ship role, the Z'Gok had multiple means of destruction at its disposal. It could attack from a distance using the rocket/torpedo launchers mounted in its head, or it could pierce a ship's hull at high-speed with its claws. However, there were several cases in which Z'Goks punched through ship hulls, but became stuck in the wreckage because of the claw's design. Many of these cases resulted in the loss of the mobile suit and pilot due to explosive wreckage, in which case the suit and/or pilot were unable to escape in time.

Designed to overcome this flaw, the Ram Z'Gok was equipped with many improvements, including redesigned arms, a modified head, and a modified backpack. The Ram Z'Gok retained the Z'Gok's arm-mounted mega particle cannons, but the triple-nailed "hand" was removed. In place of the claws was a spike shield mounted to either arm. These shields gave the Ram Z'Gok the same close-combat cababilities, but removed the possibility for the mobile suit to become "stuck" to its target during combat. Another advantage to the use of the arm-mounted shields is that the Ram Z'Gok could fire its mega particle cannons faster, since the fire-control system no longer needed to be concerned with the opening and closing of the Z'Gok's nails.

The Z'Gok's head-mounted rocket/torpedo launcher had been removed in the Ram Z'Gok in favor of a "mohawk-like" head-mounted ramming spike. The spike is similar in technological design as the Zaku II's Heat Hawk in that it has the ability to become super-heated and cut through mobile suit and ship armor with ease. This head-spike can be used in a close combat role in any number of ramming/charging attacks, but can also be used underwater to pierce ship hulls. Like a submarine's conning tower, the spike can also be used to break surface ice when the mobile suit is operating in extremely cold waters.

Armaments

  • Mega Particle Cannon
The mega particle cannons mounted in the arms of the Ram Z'Gok are presumably identical to those of the MSM-07 Z'Gok.
  • Claw Shield
Aside from their the obvious defensive capabilities, the claw shields have excellent potential as close-combat weapons. The actual claws that extend from the shield are as long as the shield itself (clearly longer than the MSM-07 Z'Gok's claws), giving the Ram Z'Gok excellent, if not superior close-combat capabilities.
  • Heat Ram
Mounted on the head of the Ram Z'Gok is a long heat ram, similar in technological design to the Zaku's heat hawk and the Dom's heat saber. The Z'Gok's head-mounted rocket launchers have been replaced by high-resistance shock absorbers to lessen shock to the pilot and damage to the mobile suit during ramming attacks.
