The Me-02R Messer is a mass-produced mobile suit developed from the AMS-119 Geara Doga. It was featured in the Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The mainstay mobile suit of the anti-Earth Federation terrorist organization "Mafty" in U.C. 0105, the Messer was produced by Anaheim Electronics under Mafty's commission.[1] Created as a part of the same line as former Neo Zeon mobile suits like the AMS-119 Geara Doga and the MSN-04 Sazabi, the Messer has various Zeon-type mobile suit design elements, such as the mono-eye sensor in the head, rounded armor parts and spiked shoulder armor.[1] This is likely done to hide Anaheim Electronics' involvement with an anti-Federation organization.[1] However, features such as air intakes on the chest, which were usually only seen on Federation MS, were also incorporated.[1]

Despite its large size and heavy armor, the Messer has high maneuverability and mobility due to powerful main thrusters on its back as well as various sub-thrusters on its legs and waist.[1] It also has vectored tail stabilizer on its back that can be used for air braking and attitude control when free falling from high altitudes.[2] The Messer was intended for guerilla warfare and adopted armaments including vulcan guns, beam sabers, a beam rifle and a shield so as to be highly versatile.[1] It can also use various weapons derived from Federation MS.[1] Most of the time, the Messer will enter combat using the Galcezon sub-flight system.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Gun
Three pairs of shell-firing armament built into each side of the head, for a total of six. They are used for restricting enemy's movements, creating a barrage, intercepting missiles, etc.
  • Beam Saber
A Beam Saber identical to those used by the RGM-89 Jegan Type-A, it emits a beam blade when used for melee combat.[1] One can be stored on the underside of the spiked right shoulder armor and two more can be stored in the Large Shield.[1]
  • Long Beam Rifle
A Beam Rifle specifically designed for the Messer, it has a long barrel and is equipped with an optical sight on the right side that enables long-range attacks such as sniping.[1] The Long Beam Rifle has two E-packs mounted in parallel under the barrel, and these E-packs are the same ones used by Federation MS such as the Jegan A-Type.[1]
  • Large Shield
A large physical shield with high defensive abilities against beam weapons.[1] It also functions as a weapon rack that can store spare E-packs and Beam Sabers.[1]
