The OZ-08MMS Cancer is one of two transformable amphibious mobile suits developed by OZ. The unit is featured in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The OZ-08MMS Cancer was developed by the organization OZ as its first aquatic mobile suit. Despite being a mobile suit the Cancer lacked the basic humanoid appearance of other mobile suits and was designed without legs, strictly limiting its movement capabilities to aquatic environments such as the ocean. In place of legs the Cancer's primary propulsion systems were hydrojet engines built into the main body, while maneuvering was handled through ring of reversible side-spinning propeller blades on each arm.

The Cancer's primary weapons systems were four torpedo launchers in its arms. Those same arms mounted pincer-like claws with which the Cancer could grapple targets. Each claw contains two of the Cancer's four torpedo launchers.

Armaments

  • Torpedo Launcher
Each arm of the Cancer are torpedo launchers. They have a claw like design of a crab, and can be used to grapple its enemies under water.
  • Water-to-Surface Missiles
From the torpedo launcher the Cancer can fire water-to-surface missiles that are used for attacking targets long shore-lines.

History

The Cancer was used throughout the After Colony year 195 by OZ forces. One of their first known missions was to search for the XXXG-01W Wing Gundam that had been abandoned on the ocean floor but the Cancer and two Pisces mobile suits that found the Gundam were ambushed and destroyed by XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe. Later in the year Cancer mobile suits usually in conjunction with Pisces mobile suits were used in multiple battles that took place in the ocean, on the surface, or in coastal regions.

Notes

  • The Cancer's overall shape resembles its namesake, its name is derived from "Cancer" being the fourth Zodiac sign meaning "Crab."
