The RGE-B790 Genoace is the main mobile suit for the Earth Federal Forces which appeared in the Flit Arc of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE. The unit is piloted by Largan Drace.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Genoace is a mass production mobile suit used by the Earth Federal Forces. It is a highly versatile machine and characterized by a clear blue visor covering the front of the head and internal sensors.[1] It was rolled out at the same time as the Earth Federation military begin to battle the UE.[2] A wide variety of customized units currently exist.[2] The Genoace's frame is based on the Desperado's.[3]

In terms of combat, the standard armed Genoace's performance is significantly inferior compared to Vagan mobile suits, such as the Gafran and Baqto. However, by equipping more powerful weapons like the DODS Gun, it becomes capable of destroying Unknown Enemy units.


  • Beam Spray Gun
The Genoace's primary armament, it fires a blast of charged particles. Despite being a beam weapon, the beam spray gun is not powerful enough to damage the armor of Vagan mobile suits. The shots of the Beam Spray Gun are about as powerful as a tank shell.[4]
  • Shield
The Genoace's defensive armament. A fairly standard shield mounted on the left forearm.
  • Heat Stick
The Genoace's close-combat armament, it is stored in the shield. Like the beam spray gun, the heat stick has little to no effect against any Vagan mobile suits. The length of the heat stick is about that of the forearm and the end is sharpened into a point, making it most effective as a stabbing weapon.[4]
  • DODS Gun
A mass produced beam weapon of the Gundam AGE-1's DODS Rifle. Although not as powerful as the DODS Rifle, it still has enough power to take down most Vagan mobile suits in one shot.[5][6]


Since its development the Genoace has served as the main mobile suit of the Earth Federal Forces and one of the many weapons deployed against UE attacks. However even 15 years after the UE's first appearance the Genoace has yet to claim a single victory. However, one such Genoace would continue to be used by Largan Drace in 115 A.G. in battle against the UE. This unit was gradually improved over time inheriting partial resistance to the UE's beam weaponry through a beam coating originally derived for the Gundam and a DODS Gun, in place of the unit's standard Beam Spray Gun. Through these upgrades and the apparent skill of its pilot, the Genoace was able to destroy a Gafran unit during the UE's attack on the Minsry Colony.

Even though it was outdated, The Genoace was still remained service during the year A.G 123 where it took part in protecting the Toludin Base.


  • RGE-B791 Genoace Type 791
A variant that only appears in the Gundam AGE novel, it also referred to as "Home Capital Type." It is armed with a pair of head-mounted 60mm vulcans and a beam gatling gun. It can be configured to function as a Cannon or Sniper type.[6]
  • RGE-B790A Genoace Assault
A modified Genoace equipped with a Gundam-class chest-plate. It carries an experimental beam dagger similar to the G-Exes', and was effective against the ovv-a Baqto. It had a limited operating time due to reduced propellant.[6]
  • RGE-B791C Genoace Cannon
A heavy artillery variant known as the "Genoace Cannon" appears in the Gundam AGE novel. It is armed with a back-mounted 30-cm rail cannon and deployed at Arinston base. It is later equipped with armor-piercing ammunition. It is operated by the 8th Space Fleet and used in the operation to capture Ambat.[6]
  • RGE-B790 Genoace Commander Type
A commander-type Genoace painted in moss green colors. It was armed with a trial beam dagger developed for the AGE-1 Gundam. It was operated by lieutenant Kleine.[4][6]




  • Though this was never seen in the anime, the HG Genoace comes with a beam saber blade that can be used in place of the Heat Stick's point.
  • The Genoace's role to the Earth Federal Forces is very similar to that of the RGM-79 GM to the Earth Federation Forces in the Universal Century timeline.
    • This is also reflected in the model number, which may be a reference to the GM.
