Technology and Combat Characteristics
The GINN FEMWS (Fighter Experiment Maneuver in Water & Surface) is an experimental mobile suit designed for underwater combat and is based upon the basic frame of the ZGMF-1017 GINN. The suit's developer also referred to it as the 'Proto GOOhN', and its armament consists of only two arm-mounted 7-barrel torpedo launchers. Data gained from the suit is used to develop UMF-4A GOOhN.
- 533mm 7-barrel Torpedo Launcher
- One on each arm, the torpedoes are rocket-propelled and can be used on land and in the sea.
During the First Alliance-PLANT War, ZAFT created several variants of its standard ZGMF-1017 GINN mobile suit to fulfil different purposes. One such variant is the GINN FEMWS which was a prototype amphibious mobile suit. On April 10, CE 70 one GINN FEMWS was piloted by Marco Morassim, who led a team of UWMF/S-1 GINN WASP Type into battle against the Earth Alliance's 21st Anti-Submarine Warfare Squadron in the Coral Sea. The whole EA force was wiped out save for one survivor, Jane Houston.
Notes & Trivia
- The YF-3A GINN FEMWS has a strong resemblance to the MSM-02 Hydro Test Type from M-MSV (aka MS Collection).
