ZM-S24G Gedlav is featured in the anime Mobile Suit Victory Gundam. It is developed to be small, and also to be able to dock with the Einerad, a tire shaped support unit.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The ZM-S24G Gedlav is a mobile suit developed by BESPA specifically to be used by the Einerad mobile suit support vehicle. As such it was designed to be compact and light to make it compatible with the Einerad.

As a combat unit the Gedlav is only lightly armed and its small compact size is more of a hindrance, making it quite vulnerable without the Einerad which provided most of the weapons. In fact it is a fair assessment to say that the Einerad is the real weapon while the Gedlav serves more as a control unit or escape unit should the Einerad become damaged. The Gedlav's one real strength was that it has powerful beam shields that can work with the Einerad to completely enclose the Gedlav in a defensive barrier.

Armaments

  • Beam Shield
The Gedlav is equipped with a pair of beam shield generators, with one on each forearm. Unlike an I-field generator, which is effective only against beam attacks, the beam shield blocks both beam and projectile weapons. The beam shield generates a plane of energy similar to the blade of a beam saber. This plane is divided into multiple sections, which can be turned on or off as needed to conserve energy. Individual sections are also automatically deactivated whenever they're in danger of coming into contact with the mobile suit itself.
  • Beam Saber
The standard close range armament for most 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 Gedlav is equipped with two beam sabers to use for close combat.
  • Beam Rifle
A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle, which is powered by a rechargeable energy cap. Capable of firing concentrated mega particles, attacks from a beam rifle can damage any ordinary armor that has not been specially treated to resist it.
  • Beam Cannon
Located on top of the Einerad is a pair of beam cannons.
  • 9-tube Missile Pod
Located on top of the Einerad is a 9-tube missile pod. These rocket-propelled weapons were used for long to mid-range bombardment and to deal damage to heavily armored enemies.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Einerad
A tire-shaped support machine that possesses high mobility. For offensive purposes the Einerad is armed with a pair of beam cannons and a missile pod.
