Technology & Combat Characteristics
Built by the Mars Zeon stationed on Mars, the RF Gelgoog resembled the old MS-14 Gelgoog series of mobile suits. Although it resembled the older mobile suit, the RF Gelgoog had a redesigned internal structure featuring modern parts and designs. This in turn allowed the RF Gelgoog to have a performance on par with modern mobile suits.
- Twin Beam Sword
- The twin beam sword, also known as a beam naginata, is the RF Gelgoog's main close combat weapon. The beam sword operates by generating a beam of plasma contained and shaped by an I-field. Because of the heat of the plasma, the beam sword can cut through any alloy. The twin beam sword's handle is about twice that of average beam saber hilts, and has an emitter at both ends, allowing it to create two beam blades. When not in use, the twin beam sword is stored in the backpack.
- 2-tube Missile Launcher
- The RF Gelgoog has a missile launcher capable of holding two missiles equipped on each forearm.
- Beam Rifle
- Standard range weapon that fires a directed and concentrated burst of mega particles. Can penetrate most materials that have not been treated with an anti-beam countermeasure.
- Beam Bazooka
- The beam bazooka utilizes the technology of a beam rifle on a slightly larger scale. The beam bazooka fires slower moving mega particles, causing its beam to widen and allowing the beam to cause damage over a greater area, ideal for dealing with battleships or catching multiple mobile suits off-guard.
The RF Gelgoog actually outperformed the RF Zaku which was the mainstay mobile suit of the Oldsmobile army. However the unit was highly costly and was only produced in limited numbers that were regulated to high-ranking officers or ace pilots.
