OZ-09MMS Pisces is one of two transformable amphibious mobile suits developed by OZ. The unit is featured in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
Unlike Oz's older marine mobile suit, the OZ-08MMS Cancer, the Pisces possesses legs in mobile suit mode. This gives it a more human appearance as well as the ability to exit the water and move on land. The machine's propellers in submarine mode are used as claws in its mobile suit mode. Though the claws are crude as manipulators, they are effective in melee attacks, and can spin at high speed to increase the damage of attacks. The arms are also equipped with smaller manipulator arms capable of more delicate operations.
The Pisces is an artillery-type assault vehicle with its primary weapon being twelve torpedo tubes, six mounted in each shoulder. The torpedo tubes are forward-facing in both modes. A common tactic of Pisces pilots is to partially surface in mobile suit mode and bombard coastal targets with the torpedoes.
- Torpedo Launcher
The Pisces has twelve shoulder mounted torpedo launchers, six in each shoulder, that face forward in mobile suit and submarine mode. These torpedoes double as surface to surface missiles when the mobile suit come above the surface.
- Underwater Mines
The Pisces 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 two Pisces and Cancer mobile suits that found the Gundam were ambushed and destroyed by XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe. Later in the year Pisces mobile suits usually in conjunction with Cancer mobile suits were used in multiple battles that took place in the ocean, on the surface, or in coastal regions.
- The name Pisces comes from the twelfth sign of the Zodiac and means "Fish"
