The AMS-119 Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type (aka Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type) is a variant of the AMS-119 Geara Doga. It is featured in the original design series CCA-MSV and the photo-novel/OVA Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type was a heavy weapon variant of the standard Geara Doga, outfitted with a heavy armament backpack in place of the normal backpack. This new backpack has two large propellant tanks for increased operational time, a Lange Bruno Gun for long-range support purposes, and enhanced propulsion system to compensate for the added weight. Other than these changes, the Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type is the same as the standard Geara Doga. A similar set-up was later used by the AMS-129 Geara Zulu (Angelo Sauper Use).
- 20cm Lange Bruno Gun
- A large gun mounted onto the Heavy Armed Type's backpack, it is designed for long-range support purposes. It fires 20cm projectiles that are stored in a replaceable magazine located at the back of the weapon. When in use, the gun rotates under arm to be held by hand, and when not in use, it rotates backwards.
- Beam Sword-Axe
- Like the standard Geara Doga, the Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type can carry a beam sword-axe for close combat. It has two beam emitters, allowing it to produce beam blades in the shape of a typical beam saber, pick, or axe. The beam sword-axe is mounted on the rear skirt armor when not in use.
- Beam Machine Gun
- Like the standard Geara Doga, the Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type can use one of two different beam machine guns. Each is powered by a replaceable e-pac, with two spare e-pacs stored in the suit's side armor. One of the beam machine guns can be optionally equipped with a grenade launcher, carrying a single grenade, under the barrel.
- The Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type can carry the same forearm-mounted shield as the standard Geara Doga. This shield also mounts a pair of small, two-tubed, multi-launchers that can fire grenades or act as smoke dischargers.
- Mega Beam Cannon
- The left arm of the Geara Doga Heavy Armed Type can be replaced with a powerful beam weapon known as mega beam cannon.
Although in U.C. 0096 "The Sleeves" had developed a new mass production mobile suit, the AMS-129 Geara Zulu, the Geara Doga Heavy Weapons Type was still used in their mobile suit forces as a long range support unit. These Geara Dogas were painted in a new color scheme and given the distinctive markings featured on many of the mobile suits used by The Sleeves.
