Technology & Combat Characteristics
In terms of combat strength the EMS-09 Vagon is similar to the EMS-06 Batara, the mobile suit from where the Vagon's design was derived. However while the Batara was designed as an all purpose mobile suit, the Vagon was designed for ground combat or combat in small enclosed spaces. To facilitate this purpose the Vagon is capable of retracting its lower legs into its upper legs, connecting the wheel segments mounted on its feet and shoulder. In this configuration the wheels become its primary mode of transportation, allowing it to move quickly across the ground, its small profile and speed making it exceptionally difficult to hit. The only disadvantage of this ability is that it prevents the Vagon from using a variety of weapons so this mobile suit is usually only equipped with a beam rifle.
