The RGM-89R Jegan A-Type (aka Jegan Type R) is a mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam F91 movie.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RGM-89R Jegan A-Type is a high mobility variant of the RGM-89J Jegan Normal Type for use within space colonies.[1] The suit features improvement in communication systems, additional thrusters on various parts of its body, enlarged backpack and a generator with higher output.[1] Among the Jegan series, the Jegan A-Type has the highest thruster output[1] and generator output. The suit's armament is quite similar to the base Jegan Normal Type, but replaces the hip-mounted grenade rack with a second beam saber recharge rack, and has a new 2-tube grenade launcher on its left forearm.

Armaments

  • 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 guns are shell firing weapons with a high-rate of fire but have little power and are generally ineffective against mobile suits, though they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. The vulcan guns are ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles or small vehicles.
  • 2-tube Grenade Launcher
The Jegan A-Type mounts a 2-tube grenade launcher on its left arm. While grenade launchers used during the One Year War fired unguided grenades, later versions launch self-propelled homing missiles with their own optical guidance systems.
  • Beam Saber
The standard close range armament for most Federation mobile suits. The beam saber is a small cylindrical device held in the mobile suit's hands when operated and is powered by an energy capacitor that is recharged from special racks. The beam saber emits a blade of plasma contained by an I-Field and is capable of cutting through almost any metal that has not been treated with anti-beam coating. The Jegan A-Type is equipped with two beam sabers that are stored in hip mounted recharge racks, one on each hip.
  • Shield
Shields are essentially thick slabs of metal that a mobile suit can use to absorb the impact from attacks that, for whatever reason, cannot be dodged. However, shields can only withstand so much pressure before becoming damaged themselves. Shields are usually treated with anti-beam coating to defend against beam weapons which can normally penetrate any physical barrier, however the coating gets gradually burned away each time a beam strikes it until it is rendered useless. The Jegan A-Type 's shield can be mounted onto either arm and is armed with a pair of 4-tube missile launchers. Despite their general effectiveness since mobile suits were first developed, the shields employed by the Federation in the UC 0120s proved unable to withstand the electromagnetically accelerated spear fired from the shot lancer used by the Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits.
  • 4-tube Missile Launcher
The standard shield of the Jegan A-Type mounts two 4-tube missile launchers that fires rocket propelled low-yield explosives designed to destroy mobile suits.
  • Beam Rifle
A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle. Capable of firing concentrated mega particles, attacks from a beam rifle are can damage any ordinary armor that has not be specially treated to resist it. One of the more effective methods of blocking a beam rifle is to use a beam shield. When the technology became available it became standard for beam rifles to be powered by a replaceable e-pac that could be replaced mid-battle if they ran out of power.

History

Introduced in the early UC 0090's the RGM-89 Jegan would be upgraded over the three decades of its service life. The RGM-89J Jegan Normal Type eventually took over as the Jegan series' basic model, and it had two variants: the RGM-89R Jegan A-Type and the RGM-89M Jegan B-Type[1] Despite being a high mobility unit with the highest thruster and generator output amongst the Jegan series, the Jegan A-Type was still horribly out-of-date during the invasion of the Frontier Side by the Crossbone Vanguard in UC 0123.
