The MS-07C-5 Gouf Test Prototype mobile suits from the design series Mobile Suit Variations.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

In efforts to create a dominant land use mobile suit, the Principality of Zeon's Zimmad Company took a standard MS-07 Gouf and extensively modified it. The new unit they created was dubbed the Gouf Test Prototype. The Gouf Test Prototype mounted several extra thrusters in its legs to give it the ability to hover short distances across the ground. It was also given an experimental heat sword melee weapon that was substantially larger than the normal Gouf heat saber.

Armanments

  • Heat Saber
The Gouf's main weapon, the Heat Saber is a battery powered weapon that uses a superheated blade to increase its slicing abilities. Because the Heat Sword do not have the range or the power of the beam saber the pilot is required to be more precise in their use, relying more on skill than technology. When not in use, the Heat Saber is stored in the back of the shield.
  • Shield
A basic optional arm-mounted defense armament for many mobile suits. The shield is a thick sheet of armor designed to take severe punishment that would normally destroy a mobile suit. Typically physical shields can only take so much damage before they succumb to the pressure and break. A shield can be equipped to the left arm of the Gouf Test Prototype in order to increase defense against both beam and physical attacks.

History

Only a single Gouf Test Prototype was constructed during the One Year War, and it was used explicitly as a testbed for new innovations in mobile suit design, never seeing any actual combat. The data gathered from the Gouf Test Prototype would be compiled and several of the new technologies that were tested with it would become standard issue when the Zimmad Company created their next mobile suit, the MS-09 Dom.
