The MSM-08 Zogok is a prototype amphibious mobile suit from the original design series MSV and made its animated debut in Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, and later appeared in the OVA series Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

As Zeon prepared for its massive invasion of the Earth Federation Force's underground military headquarters of Jaburo, located along the Amazon River in South America, the MIP Company military engineers stationed at California Base started developing a series of specialized mobile suits to aid in the assault. One of these designs was the Zogok, an amphibious mobile suit loosely based on the Z'Gok. The Zogok, armed with only melee weapons, was designed primarily for close combat. The Zogok featured ten razor sharp boomerang cutter blades on the top of its head, and its hands were mounted on extendable telescopic arms that can do a "rocket punch".

Armaments

  • Boomerang Cutter
Ten boomerang-shaped blades are mounted in the Zogok's head. The blades are launched at high-velocity to serve as a mid-range weapon. The power of these weapons is sufficient to moderately damage the armor of mobile suits that are 10 years newer.
  • Extendable Hand
The Extendable Hand is Zogok's unique features and main Close-Quarter-Combat weapon. This telescopic arms main could crush through most armor with its sheer power - additional force and length to the attack, a critical factor for a melee oriented mobile suit.
  • Heat Sword
A melee weapon originally developed for the Gouf line of mobile suits. Like the Zaku's heat tomahawk the heat sword is a blade that is heated to high temperatures in order to increase it's cutting capacity. The Heat Sword was designed after a broadsword so its blade is longer than the tomahawk allowing for a greater range of attack.
A hand-held rocket propelled grenade that is good for a single shot. Zeon mobile suits were often equipped with at least one Sturm Faust during the One Year War. It was designed before the beginning of the One Year War as an anti-ship weapon. Used mainly for anti-ship attacks during the early days of the war the Sturm Faust likely made a good anti-mobile suit weapon during the latter days as Zeon mobile suits could be equipped with both a Sturm Faust and a second more standard ranged weapon giving them great versatility.
  • Giant Bazooka
The Giant bazooka is the same as the ones used by the old MS-09B Dom. While very powerful, the Giant Bazooka had a slow rate of fire and fairly little of ammunition. It's most oftenly used to take out slow, heavily armored targets.
  • BR-87A Beam Rifle
The same beam rifle used by the Marasai and Hizack. The beam rifle is powered by a rechargeable energy cap and capable of firing concentrated mega particles, a shot can damage any ordinary armor that has not been specially treated to resist beam attacks.

History

The few Zogoks that were constructed at California Base did not participate in the assault on Jaburo because Zeon Commander Char Aznable discovered a secret entrance to the subterranean base and launched the attack much earlier than originally planned. After the One Year War ended a few Zogoks eventually wound up in the hands of civilians, and can be seen in the series Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ.

During UC 0096, at least one Zogok was used by the Zeon remnants during the assault of Torrington Base. This unit was heavily damaged in battle by the RX-160S Byarlant Custom, it retreated after a AMS-129M Zee Zulu took its heat sword to combat the Byarlant.
