The RGM-109-M5 Heavygun is a variant of the RGM-109 Heavygun that appears in Mobile Suit Victory Gundam.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RGM-109-M5 Heavygun is a modified version of Earth Federation's RGM-109 Heavygun. It has a slight reduction in height and weight, and is equipped with a more powerful reactor. It also had a reduced number of vernier thrusters, but it retained the same number of main rocket thrusters and they have been upgraded to provide higher thrust. Although these modifications improved its basic performance, it is still an outdated machine in U.C. 0150s, and lacked the beam shield commonly used by mobile suits of the era. It was even older than the RGM-119 Jamesgun, which was already obsolete at the time, and was no match against the mobile suits made by the Zanscare Empire.

Armaments

  • Beam Rifle
The same portable firearm as used by the original RGM-109 Heavygun. It has the same functions, but some of them have been simplified.
  • Beam Saber
The beam saber emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The RGM-109-M5 Heavygun usually stores a beam saber in its body for melee combat.
  • Shield
A physical shield with an anti-beam coating, which is rare in U.C. 0150s. This is the same shield as used by the original RGM-109 Heavygun.

History

The RGM-109-M5 Heavygun was operated by the Macedonia colony, one of the independent nations of Side 2, for its own defense. In U.C. 0153, when the Zanscare Empire began its militarist expansion, the Heavygun was shown to be painfully outdated and outperformed by the Zanscare Empire's mobile suits that were superior to even the Earth Federation Force's. Still, the Macedonia colony attempted to resist with their mobile suit forces but it proved futile. The Neo Texas colony in Side 5 also deployed their own modified version of the machine.

Variants

  • Heavygun (Texas Specification)
Appears in the Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Ghost manga, it is a refurbished version of the RGM-109-M5 Heavygun developed independently by Neo Texas. In addition to having a different chest shape, a machine cannon is also added to the left shoulder.
