The AMX-117L Gaz-L (also pronounced Gazu-L) is a Mobile Suit built by Neo Zeon that appears during the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. It is piloted by Lance Gylen.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

An upgrade of the mass production RMS-117 Galbaldy β, it is a close-quarter combat machine designed for defense purposes. The Gaz-L was distinguished by its eye-catching red-on-white paint scheme and the large, flared armor on its left shoulder. With a more powerful reactor and a vast number of melee armaments, the Gaz-L is a troublesome enemy at close range. Designed to operate in tandem with its twin, Nee Gylen's AMX-117R Gaz-R, the Gaz-L would typically escort either Haman Karn's AMX-004 Qubeley or Royal Guard leader Chara Soon's AMX-015 Geymalk on its left flank.


  • Hyper Beam Saber
Two hyper beam sabers are stored on the Gaz-L's backpack. Their hilts are larger than most other beam sabers' during the First Neo Zeon War, and are capable of emitting a longer and more powerful beam blade that can easily cut through several mobile suits in a single swing. They can also be used as beam cannons when stored, capable of destroying most MS in one shot, or damage a battleship. Additionally, the two hyper beam sabers can be connected at their hilts to form a twin bladed weapon, the 'Beam Naginata', which is also known as 'Twin Lancer'.
  • Beam Saber
The beam saber is a small device held in the mobile suit's hands when deployed and is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor. It emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The Gazu-L has two beam sabers stored in the enlarged forearm armor on the left arm.
  • Heat Lance
As its name implies, the heat lance uses thermal energy to heat up its blade to super-high temperatures, similar to the heat weapons used by the Principality of Zeon. The high heat allows the lance to melt the enemy's armor on contact, which when combined with the force applied to the attack, can inflict significant damage.
  • Beam Rifle
The main long-range armament of the Gaz-L. The particle beam fired from a beam rifle can penetrate any armor not treated with specific counter-measures. While not as powerful as the Beam Cannon, Gaz-L's Beam Rifle has a greater firing rate. It is powered by a rechargeable energy cap.


Neo Zeon's elite Royal Guard squadron, charged with the protection of their leader Haman Karn, operated a handful of customized mobile suits during the Axis War. One of these units, Royal Guardsman Lance Gylen's AMX-117L Gaz-L, was modeled after the Earth Federation Forces' mass-produced RMS-117 Galbaldy β. Lance used this machine with great efficiency, but it was destroyed by Rakan Dahkaran after a failed suicidal attack by Lance, who took a shot from Rakan Dahkaran, that was meant for Chara Soon beforehand.
