The RGC-90 Jegan Heavy Armor Type is a prototype ground artillery mobile suit built by the Earth Federation to provide mid-range fire support. The unit is featured in the original design series Char's Counterattack: Mobile Suit Variations.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The body is a re-designed RGM-89 Jegan developed specifically for ground combat. The generator output is enhanced and the legs are strengthened to provide extra support for battles fought under Earth's gravity. The Jegan Heavy Armor is equipped with several new weapons, including a pair of beam cannons and missile pods. Overall, its firepower is superior to that of the standard Jegan.
- Vulcan Gun Pod
- The vulcan gun pod is an optional close-range defensive armaments mounted on the head that is based on the technology of the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. The vulcan gun is a shell firing weapon with a high-rate of fire but have little power and are generally ineffective against mobile suits, though it can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. The vulcan gun is ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles or small vehicles.
- Beam Cannon
- The RGC-90 Jegan's primary weapons are a pair of shoulder mounted beam cannons which gave the mobile suit heavy firepower.
- Missile Pod
- The RGC-90 Jegan features a pair of waist mounted missile pods. Each pod carries three missiles that can only be fired one at a time.
- Beam Rifle
- A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle. The beam rifle carried by the Jegan is a rapid fire, but short range type. Sensors built into the rifle provide interface between the weapon and the Jegan's camera sensor.
As the successor of the RGM-79 GM series, the Jegan is the new mass-produced mobile suit of the Earth Federation. The suit is lighter and more maneuverable than all the previous GM units, although it is not as well armed as the RGM-86R GM III. Nevertheless it performed very well and thus it was put into mass production. They at first were assigned to the Londo Bell task force in UC 0093 during the Second Neo Zeon War where many of this units fought against the mass-produced AMS-119 Geara Doga of the Neo Zeon army. Although at first used by the Londo Bell they soon became standard in the Federation forces and served as their front line suit during the following decades, through 30 years later in the F91 series. As with many other mobile suits many variants of the Jegan were created over the years.
As with other Federation mobile suits numerous variants of the Jegan would be built, one of which is the RGC-90 Jegan which was designed for superior performance on the Earth's surface. It is an artillery mobile suit outfitted with many heavy weapons and sports a paint scheme similar to that of the old RGM-79 GM.
